    What oil for diff and manual gearbox

    thanks guys ill get onto it. Oddly my mechanic friend said that gets worse on a left hand bend means left hand side. How can I be certain, there is no slack in the wheel...
  3. Ive been looking online and cant actually be sure which oils I need for a 2.5d diff and gearbox. Ive got a rumble in the rear which gets worse on a left hand bend and I really cant identify if its one side or the other or the centre. Id like it to be a wheel bearing really but........ So ill check the diff oil first (no leaks) Im a bit old fashioned and have a drum of ep80 but I bet that's not suitable for either lol Thanks Lee

    Ok so that fell through in a rather bizarre way. How much do you want for the tailgate. Blue or not I need one please.

    Parts for my silver E39 touring needed

    Hiya folks a lorry reversed into my beloved E39 and smashed the back in. So im urgetnly wanting a tailgate with window complete and while im at it, a new bonnet and drivers door. Silver only as I cant afford to paint anything. I would consider a whole car but it would have to be very cheap. Ive just done absolutely every suspension arm and subframe mounts and prop rubbers. Im based near Thame. Fingers crossed

    subframe bushes and prop doughnut

    also ive just been searching and initially can't find a genuine BMW doughnut but this list here ranges from £17 - £70. Why the difference ? https://www.buycarparts.co.uk/bmw/5-touring-e39/14680/10807/drive-shaft-coupler?sort_supplier[]=35

    subframe bushes and prop doughnut

    Hi Guys Ive a load of rubber to change and I want to know what is the best supplier for these things. Ive had several people tell me I simply have to use a genuine bmw prop doughnut. Whats the opinion here please and which brand should I buy if I dont use genuine parts (im not sure I can actually afford to do the job with genuine) I need to replace every subframe mount and the prop bush Thanks CG
