    E39 Touring handbrake rebuild?

    mine has fresh cables, originals had done decent service being original! as mentioned it'll lock the rears up nicely even at 30mph

    What have you done on your E34 Today

    Pondered whether to sell it as its no longer being used though it does work and have an MOT.

    Rattle pins

    they look like the typical ATE anti rattle springs, readily available in the aftermarket. I found some on realoem, but a chassis number or more car specifics would help.

    Cooling loop behind grill?

    power steering cooling loop https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=DC82-EUR-03-1985-E28-BMW-M535i&diagId=32_0263 (just a guess that its an early rhd auto) best bet is to select your particular variant directly to confirm. as its on the return side you could indeed just loop it for the time being if it is leaking.

    E39 Touring handbrake rebuild?

    they really aren't that bad, mine will lock up at 30+ always took mine out of drive, holding ut against the converter in drive uses too much fuel. stripped and reassembled and adjusted properly is all was needed.

    E34 Buyers Guide?

    I see the tax in Ireland seems particularly expensive, but what are your fuel prices like?

    1993 E34 tds non start issue

    I don't think it'll have a starter relay if its manual, the auto does and its in the left hand engine bay fusebox, the basic immobilising system on my 93 auto didn't stop it cranking, but I think does stop the lift pump and the stop solenoid so it should be easy enough to diagnose with a power probe/test light.

    What have you done on your E34 Today

    fingers crossed the pump survived ! I had a leak that turned out to be my engine oil cooler pipe, similar kinda thing, rotted through where a foam buffer was holding moisture against it, had been weeping for some time but cracked when I investigated, £90 from bmw for a replacement I did not think was too bad.
