    Heavy rain, Water leak

    You can see that downpipe on your picture as you say Matthew. I would imagine that they have decided to do away with the overly complex route for water on the F10/11 given the problems it caused.
  2. Bloody hell, that link you have attached is mind blowing Lennox. Just reading it through, those guys on there really get into depth on some stuff...............

    What I meant Andrew is get a new one and slice the new one then fit it over the pipes and into place. That way you are not slicing the one in situ and risk damaging the brake lines. Hope that makes sense.

    Thanks Andrew. Looking at it, there is nothing stopping running a stanley blade through the rubber to make it removable? Obviously, we would have to be careful with the brake pipes. Or, perhaps buying a new one and doing it?

    I would put new pads on without doubt.

    Andrew/Matthew, this rubber jobbie, when you pull it out, does it have slots for the brake lines so that the rubber thing can be removed for cleaning?

    Service Counter info from key read data

    I think it's just a count of "how many had been done", so, you have had 4 oil changes for example?

    Thanks, so, interestingly, many of people that have carried out the same report that they do not have a white pipe in that area, so, perhaps we can assume that it is not needed? If it is, I would be interested in finding out why some do and some don't. Not seen a picture of it though so that is interesting for sure. When you got the pipe out was it blocked?

    I have had mine done twice also.
  10. I have a mineral white F11 and your salesman is correct, it does hide the dirt very well. I have owned BMW's of all colours and the white hides it the best. I will try to explain. When the white gets dirty, you cannot see it until you are ready to wash it. When you wipe your first sweep with a sponge or mitt, then you see how dirty the car was. This is not the case with darker colours as they show the dirty straight away. People used to say "I am not getting a white car as it shows all the dirt", it's not true.

    Yes, if there was not a liner on the wheel arch you could understand the flap. but, its hidden behind the liner.

    Why don't you get your breakdown cover out to have a look at it?

    Just out of interest, I have looked back over Andrews "scuttle clean" thread to familiarise myself on where this all fits. At the botton of the hinge area, there is the rubber bung which has the brake pipes through it. The flaps as we know get stuck with leaf mulch etc, is there any reason why the flaps could not be cut out leaving a permanent hole?

    Thanks Gents, I get it now. Appreciated. I will poke a camera down there and have a look. I don't expect to see many issues as the car never goes anywhere and spends its like in the garage lol The first picture above, although not shown, the brake pipes will be just beneath that picture if it was enlarged? Is that correct?

    I wish I could figure out exactly where this is. I know its under the bonnet hinge but I cannot get me head around exactly what it is and how it works. If the weather is better tomorrow I might get mine out and shover my endoscope in there.........
