    E39 525d weird engine noise

    Could be slack in the timing chain, have someone Rev it while you try and pin the noise down to an area in the engine bay, take the oil cap off and see if the rattle is internal

    e39 530d no rail pressure?

    If it runs there must be some pressure, I’d be looking at trying a borrowed pressure sensor, the high pressure pumps aren’t a common failure

    Rear view mirror knocked off

    Cheers, good idea , after watching that vid I think I’ll glue it myself, And cheers mashmanu, the lots has come off but I didn’t know the mirror came apart like that, I can take it off now instead of it flopping around

    Rear view mirror knocked off

    I was wiping the inside of my screen and managed to knock it of with my elbow, has anyone done the same , and what have you stuck it back on with? very annoyed with myself and more annoying is the thing is swinging around.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Oh the luxury! P*#ses me off that my saloon rear seats don’t fold down

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Fixed the boot lid wiring at last, got to the point I was having to put the key in the boot lock n twist it! Far too much effort to get into the boot.

    Idle vibration

    Is it manual?

    E39 530d died

    Crank sensor could cause this problem and not throw a fault code up

    Mitivac for oil change?

    Just buy a sump plug repair kit from the well known auction site and fix the problem, I don’t rate the vac oil recovery pumps, take forever in comparison to a bowl and a Jack, the repair kits are about £20 and come with many replacement plugs

    Bmw e61 530d turbo opinion needed

    They whistle louder if the exhaust flexi’s are blowing, you may not notice it as an exhaust blow though, check for soot build up in that area

    Yes I’ve read the same today, my tester is a “glass half empty” kinda guy tbh (miserable bast@rd)

    My mot tester told me, although sounds more reasonable that it would be a dangerous defect to void the running mot, I’ll probably bump into him this week so I’ll quiz him on the specifics of it

    Thought I ought to point out that if you take your car in for mot early and it fails it voids you’re current MOT. That came in in January 1st a couple of years ago

    E39 aftermarket head unit/ s’wheel controls

    I should have said, I love vintage hifi and vinyl format, as for in car entertainment I’ve never owned an amp and the best car stereo I’ve owned was is a Sony d-bass n 10 disc changer, (still have it)
