    F10 fuel gauge.

    I'll top up on the way home tomorrow and see. I've not used the garage I've just used before...so maybe.

    F10 fuel gauge.

    Just filled it up. Probably the first time where it was still a 1/4 full. But driving far tomorrow and didn't want to worry about fuel. Defo fill it to to the click, and then a click again, but the needle isnt at max, and neither is the range which usually is 630 miles for me.
  3. I need a leisure battery to charge lipos at the race track I go to for my rc car. https://www.alpha-batteries.co.uk/115ah-xplorer-leisure-battery/ It's a 120ah battery. I can get it for basically a couple of pints of beer through a contact. My ctek mxs 5.0 apparently only support up to 110ah and 160 maintenance. But to be honest I don't truly understand this. I only need it at the weekends, so will it charge?

    Washer jet adjustment

    I remember them. Had them on my vw polo 92 plate.
  5. Gotcha. Hope all works out for the best.
  6. You sold your car?

    Heavy rain, Water leak

    We do have this thread though. It's what brought me to the forum I think. I love my grommet.

    All cars are basically LHD, until they whack a hole in on the right and cover the original one of the left. Production line efficiency.

    Heavy rain, Water leak

    Correct. It flows both ways down from the windscreen. Routes are: 1. To the grommet area, which flows then through a hole to the well area under the hinge. 2. Straight down to the well under the hinge. That's why cleaning the grommet area and modding it as you have done helps lots. Unless you keep the escape flaps very clear in the hinge well and the connecting hole.

    Endoscope just followed one of the paths water takes from the windscreen. Straight down from above inline where the grommet is.

    You need to check drainage holes. Mine were actually closed, so even without leaf build up they didn't really drain.

    Knocking pulse

    I think its always been on but set to 21c. So perhaps the AC for the first time has properly kicked in? Only notice it when the engine has auto stopped. B47. Auto. I went out before and didn't feel it to be fair, so perhaps its just the AC getting use to running again. Shall report back any news. That link I mentioned seemed very similar. Someone mentioned flaps sticking? I need it to happen again and get under the bonnet whilst it's doing it!

    Knocking pulse

    Looks relevant. https://www.bmw-sg.com/forums/threads/knocking-sound-coming-from-aircon.70530/

    Knocking pulse

    Noticed a "pulse" every second or two whilst holding my gear stick with start stop active. Turning off the air con and it went away. Strange. There is a knocking sound too, not too loud at all but is enough to make the car pulse a little. I use the word pulse as the movement is akin to what you feel when you check your pulse. Any ideas? Perhaps the compressor for the aircon I guess.

    f11 egr valve diy

    Maybe. But defo double check this one. I'm pretty sure you need to retract and calibrate through ISTA. No practical knowledge myself, just what I've read.
