    Rust fix

    By the way did your car repairs turn into a full restoration? Have u sorted your engine problems?

    Rust fix

    The best way is Sand down affected area and remove all loose rust to see how much sound metal you have left. If metal underneath is sound, you can buy some citric acid rust remover, apply generously on affected area and cover with a cling film and tape the edges so it doesn't dry out, leave for couple of day , repeat process untill bright shiny metal is left. Fill , sand prime and top coat( i did mine with an artist paint brush and looks fine

    Vanos issues

    Morning members. My car is running little unhappy under 1200rpm when warm so i decided to turn my attention into the vanos and unplugged it, it seems to run good, just what i cant understand is that i refurbished the vanos few months ago without noticing a difference as i had few vacuum leaks which are sorted now. I cant think of any element of the rebuild that may have gone wrong as it is only seals. Could it be the vanos solenoids? I did change the vanos oil feed hose to a braided one and it seems thinner that the old one, could it be oil feed issues? Thanks

    Help removing stuck inner tie rod from rack

    Remove the rack from the car, keep it upright somewhere and keep spraying it with WD40 for a day or so and then put it on a bench vice to undo the inner tie rod

    What size swirl flap blanks

    I think if you look on the right side of the engine as you stand infront of it and look under the cover u will see a metal rod going through the length of the block, if you see that then ur swirl flaps are still there. Pre 2005 cars like yours need 22mm flap blanks X8R do a swirl flap kit.and they are of a very good quality Check their website also has a PDF instructions and a video https://x8r.co.uk/bmw-diesel-swirl-flap-blanks-flaps-repair-with-intake-manifold-gaskets
