    E39 528 Clutch Problems

    So driving the bus the other week clutch pedal goes straight to the floor I read through the forums and everyone said slave or master cylinder, about a week later I've done both and got pedal feel back but it will not engage the clutch, if started in gear it doesn't slip judder or anything, has anyone got any ideas what this could be before I start taking the box off? Cheers guys!
  2. So I have bought myself a 2000 520i se 2.2, it has 80k on it an set me back 1k (GBP). I have been driving it for about a week and have a few problems that I could do with trying to sort: - When the rear window heating is on there is static from the radio, reading up it sounds like a common problem and there is a dodgy earth, has anyone a bit of a guide on how to fix? - The parking sensors don't work, listened and the rear and front left aren't buzzing so I assume these are causing the problem, not bothered about the front, if I took a working one from the front and put it in the place if the broken rear will this make the rear work again? Or do all need to be working? - Flicking through the computer and it says the temp is -40.0 - the Max "cold" button doesn't do anything, light doesn't come on when pressed, possibly something to do with the temperature being wrong as above. - sometimes it takes like 5+ seconds to start up as apposed to the approx 2 seconds as usual, and when this happens there seems to be a proper lack of power but turn of and on again and works fine??? - The clutch randomly stayed flat to the ground? Kicked it a few times and it eventually popped back up, going through the previous owners paperwork and he took this to a garage who replaced the clutch think this will resolve the problem but it still seems to happen? Possibly need the clutch bleeding, gonna take it back to the garage asap. Any advice on any of these problems would be much appreciated. Cheers Rob
