  1. Hi guys 'n gals. I'm still having trouble tracking down my drivetrain vibration and need to get this right before I sell the car. Does anyone know of a company that can diagnose and repair these problems, I'd rather it was done professionally than just keep throwing parts on and hoping for the best. TIA Chris
  2. Myself, not too bad a job. Now I've got to take the prop off and get it tested/balanced!
  3. Hi, yes after spending most of the day on my back under the car removing the exhaust and heat shields I noticed the heat shield had been rubbing against the prop shaft on overrun(the rubbing/whooshing noise). This was because the diff upper mount rubber bush had split, allowing the diff lateral movement on acceleration/deceleration causing the vibration.
  4. I have noticed a whooshing noise on overrun sound a bit like an escaping boost pressure noise and it seems to be from the middle of the car. Going back to the vibration I would say it sounds exactly like running over a rumble strip and lasts for about 2 seconds. Spoken to Dr. Google but just getting loads of variations from doughnuts on the prop, software from my remap etc. I'm thinking of trying the front doughnut next? Any help would be gratefully appreciated.
  5. Thanks for that, I'll pop my winters on. Fingers crossed !
  6. Hi Guy's, I wonder if anyone has experienced the above? I have changed to rear prop donut but still the same, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as It's a hard one to find. I have tried Dr. Google too but to no avail! TIA Chris.

    Coolant leak?

    Pretty sure you'll find the EGR cooler is the source of your leak.

    FDL Coding with E-Sys probs

    OK, if I understand this correctly the psdz data is incompatible and I need to find a psdz 5.9.2 download, but still unclear about the PDX container?

    Hi guys and girls, trying to connect to my F11, when I select F10 and connect I get this message and was hoping some kind soul could translate it to English, please.

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    I also received an invitation from North Yorkshire Police to send them a cheque for £100 and to include my license, although not sure why they want it because points are no longer recorded in the license!. This was a roadside van on the A64 near York!

    I'm sure she'll understand
  12. OK, bored and scanning e-bay for F11 parts, page 6 (yes, that bored)! Who in their right mind would fit these? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Purple-Universal-Woolen-Long-Plush-Steering-Wheel-Cover-Car-Grips-Accessory/122965714924?fits=Car+Make%3ABMW|Plat_Gen%3AF11&epid=725051734&hash=item1ca153e7ec:g:O-YAAOSwc-tY4fut

    I got a complete secondhand console off e-bay for £45 just for the rear vents and as it happened it was a non phone prep one so I swapped the bins out. When you unplug the large connector for the adapter there are only two pins in it, a live and earth for the adapter to charge the phone, bought one of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DDC-12V-To-5V-Converter-Module-3A-15W-Micro-USB-For-Mobile-Phone-Charger/292442752734?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 and run the lead through one of the holes under the base mat in the bin. As for the rear vents, no tools are requied to replace them, the whole unit just pulls off the end of the console. I'll try and get some pictutres together later this week.
  14. I know! It was as much as a shock to me too, mind you, it's a decent excuse to take the car out to Lidl to get some cheap flowers, chocolates I've never heard of and some Blue Nun wine. I can see the Best Boyfriend Ever medal coming my way again.

    Removed the redundant center console snap-in adapter bin, fitted a second-hand non-phone prep bin and a micro usb charger connected to the old snap-in adapter wiring. Also replaced the broken rear vents! Next job, fitting a tracker.
