    Inlet manifold cleaning

    Morning all as I’m going to be replacing my glow plugs in the next few weeks I thought while the inlet manifold was off was to clean it. Now I’ve seen some post that that people have soaked it in caustic soda but the question I want to know is how long do I soak it for.

    E60 530d glow plug removal.

    Thanks boy doing them as I had ista plugged in and showed all 6 plugs at fault. I know the relay has probably had it but Sod’s law after all that work a week later the plugs will start to fail lol. So would 10mm deep socket on 1/4 inch torque wrench be ok then. Going to see if I can spray some plus gas on them though the inlet manifold for a week or so before doing them
  11. Evening all Im going to be doing glow plugs and relay replacement but what’s best way of getting them out. Engine hot or cold and I’m guessing loads of plus gas to soak them

    What’s best grease for Caliper pins

    Copper grease drys out really quick and can cause them to seize and also eats away the rubber so I am told
  13. Morning all need to changes my pads soon but just wanted to know what grease do you lot use for the sliding pins. Iv been using copper grease in the passed but have found out copper is bad on brakes. Is cera tec good for this or red grease
  14. Good morning all. I have 4 glow plugs out so I’m playing on changing all 6 and the relay plus loom as I hear this is a common fault of them burning out. When it comes to putting the manifold back on what are the torque settings as I see the top row of bolts go in to ally and bottom bolts go in to plastic.
