    What have you done on your E34 Today

    Hope it does the trick. You may feel you need stonger glue if it starts to come away after a soaking but hopefully not.
  2. I had an issue (intermittent problem over the past 2 years) in which the immobiliser stops the car from turning over. It’s a Cobra 7928 and guess it’s a factory fit. I normally reset it with the fob (in the glove box), but today that didn’t work. Ended up finding this which worked - http://www.fixya.com/cars/t26401610-immobiliser_problems_cobra_7928_26 Basically turn the ignition on and off 3 times within 7 seconds. Then press the fob on the reset plate. On the second try it turned over. No seems fine. Annoying but thought this may help someone one day. Thanks Kit

    I posted a link to the rubber I bought on eBay (£2!) on the wiper rack chat (currently the chat below this one on the forum list). I simply made a template from cardboard then cut the rubber. You maybe want to add some stronger glue but I’m giving it a go as is first. You can get 2 cut from the sq so I have one spare if need be.

    Thought so! My touring was not well looked after, i’ve bought it back to life visually and mechanically over the past 2 years. I shed a tear when I got some of the bills!

    Guessing you are not talking about my car here and I missed another post previous to mine?!

    Wiper Rack

    My basic solution stops the noise. Sticky back rubber that can be cut to the right shape. Only a few quid, literally - https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F401644838271

    Quick wash, need to wax it next time. Also stuck some rubber to the base of the wiper to stop the thud sound when it hits the bonnet. Simple fix that works.
  8. I’ve had a lot of work done to my tourings steering including a recon of the steering box (by cpc in Amersham), new front arms, tightening of the steering adjustment bolt, alignment, wheel refurb & new tires... yet I still feel like it’s not as tight as it should be. I know a steering box will never feel like the rack and pinion on my e30, however I wonder if I can tighten the famous steering box screw a tiny bit to eek out a bit more stability? Would love to get rid of that wandering feel, especially at low speed. What advice would yoi give me about finding the sweet spot on the bolt? I know over tightening it wares parts out, but can’t help but feel it should be better after all the work carried out. Thanks Kit (Here she is hanging out with some birds)

    Clutch judder.

    I’m a little fussy, one of those owners who desire the ‘just off the factory floor’ look (and feel) to the car. But with annoying things like the tail gate window not working along with the rear wiper thanks to the loom (I hear it’s a big job) mine will always have it’s issues.

    Non that I can feel.

    Thanks everyone. Will report back once I get it looked at with your suggestions in hand. Obviously hasn’t done it since I posted the question...

    Sounds like a possibility. Would that cause any other issues that may confirm your thinking? Thanks.

    Clutch judder.

    If it were mounts etc would it not be a constant problem? Seems prone in cold weather / when not used for a long period of time.

    Clutch judder.

    Hello. An issue I’ve had since owning my touring (2 years) is when cold the clutch judders the car as I pull up to the biting point. It takes between 60 seconds to a few mins normally to disappear. Seems intermitant but guessing thats due to temp change. Any ideas? I can live with it as just spent loads on the car but if it’s an easy fix (unlikely I know) let me know. Thanks Kit

    Thanks for confirming. I’ve looked Into the original dealer, it’s BMW Royal Ascot. May try and get plates and stickers made up (via Pukar Designs). It’s a Syther dealership now, guess they will have no record of my 95’ touring? Looked at my 90’ e30 also and that’s Milcars in Stanmore, which is now a massive golf shop!
