  • As has already been pointed out, this isn't really the best place to ask questions about your E39 beemer but I'll do my best to answer your questions. 1. Take the bulb out of airbag light. 2. Keep changing em. 3. Stop using your brakes like a girl, leave it late and use em hard. 4. Worst that could have happened? You name it, if you've parked in the wrong place, someone's nicked...

  • All I can remember is that I downloaded it with shareaza, chances are a search with any edonkey client will pick it up.

  • I downloaded mine in PDF format, you can find them on most file sharing networks, not sure how legal this is but the great thing is that any work you want to do, you can just print out the relevant pages and throw em away when you're done, no more greasy old book laying around!

  • Or if you're feeling brave, it's not too difficult to do yourself with a soldering iron, instructions are here - http://www.unofficialbmw.com/repair_faqs/sil.html Should be able to get the batteries from somewhere like Maplins or RS or Tandy. Good luck Les. -----Original Message----- From: ken@^$1 [mailto:ken@^$2] Sent: 21 February 2004 03:47 To: bmwe28@^$3 Subject: RE: [bmw e28...

  • http://www.unofficialbmw.com/repair_faqs/sil.html Should tell you everything you need to know about service lights. The flashing check light should be accompanied by a light on the warning panel just above your windscreen, if you press the button on that it will stop the check light flashing, but you also need to sort out whichever light is coming on and stop it!

  • Could be the matrix, try running a hose through it, I've also come across cars before where someone has removed the thermostat for whatever reason and this has left it taking ages to warm up, making it seem as if the heaters not working, unlikely to be that if you've had the car for a while though.

  • It's time to blow the dust off the old girl and get her through MOT, I've sorted the tires, ebay bargain! I've got a couple of balljoints and a wheelbearing to do and an exhaust to replace, not too much headache there, however, what I also need is one of the little plastic thingys that hold the headlight frame onto the ball of the headlight adjuster bolt, it's a tiny silly little...
