  • I agree. I rebuilt the slave and it still sucked (air), so I replaced it with a new one. I sold the car before I had to change the master. Its easier to bleed the slave BEFORE putting back on the car, as the bleed nipple can be positioned at the highest point. I also managed to break the plastic nipple off the master when replacing the hose, but it's a cheap art, even from the...

  • Bart, I had a no-start when warm. Turned out to be the hot wire attached to the started motor/solenoid mounted to the engine. The connection is underneath a rubber sheet-cover. It doesn't take much corrosion there to drop the voltage below where anything happens.

  • There's a lot to test, MAF, fuel pressure (regulator). Others I can't remember. Check those and report back.

  • Dinan had a turbo system for the e28 535. You occasionally see them around, as parts or on cars. Good for 300+ hp, as I recall. Google "dinan e28 turbo" Regards, doug Waterloo, Ontario Canada, eh 86 951 (https://reg.pcaucr.org/forum/post.jsp?postid=2393) 01 E320 (W210) 4matic Wagon (http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w210-e-class/1417557-drl-diy-anybody-do-pos t3790569.html...

  • Gary, My experience (85 e28 535) is that the sensor "gears" can be effectively cleaned with a wire brush, as long as they haven't rusted away. The failure mode is usually corrosion inside the poorly sealed hole in the wheel hub that holds the sensor, which gradually compresses the metal sensor cans until they fail. Getting them out can be a PITA, so don't expect save/clean/repair...

  • On my 2000 e39 540, I removed an aftermarket airdam last winter in about 3" of heavy slush. The remaining bits were found to be attached with self tapping screws into the plastic bumper cover. I'd guess for you that would translate into self tapping screws (into the sheet metal). Regards, doug Waterloo, Ontario Canada, eh 86 951 (http://www.pcaucr.org/forum/post.jsp?postid=2393) 94...

  • If those are all from the master cylinder, than they're all available. First go to www.realoem.com and find the part numbers, then decide if can afford new, or if there exists a rebuild kit (e.g. fcpgroton).

  • bmw e28 - a place to discuss all things bmw especially e28's Daniel, I rebuilt the pump on my 85 535i. Kit was cheap, it includes allthe gaskets and the vanes that slide in and out on the spinning pump shaft togenerate the pumping action. I rebuilt the hoses at a hydraulic hose rebuildingshop, using the original fittings. Worked fine, no leaks. Regards, doug Waterloo, Ontario...

  • Sachida, The heat is generated by resistance at the contacts. Heat is proportional to the current squared times the resistance, so for high current circuits like a fan, its key to avoid resistance. Clean out the old plastic and emery cloth (lightly sand) the contacts. If the contacts are loose (are they floppy loose, or just bent away from the correct position?), that needs to be...
