    E39 pixel repair. Who still does?

    Thanks for all the feedback guys. To bring this full circle. I had a look at the vehicle and it ended up just the lamps required. All too easy in the end.

    Trailer wiring e39 540i

    I finally bought a trailer the other day and when connected "chack treailer light" warning came up on the dash - no prob we thought as brake lights did not work and suspected blown bulb. After some investigation, and better communication between checker and pedal pusher, it turns out that left indicater works the right and righ the left - no brake but yes to park lights. Checked with another car and trailer is wired up fine.... the 540 is a jap import but not come across this on other cars in the past.. any pointers on resolution - can I do myself or need to go to auto sparky? Will head out and get the multimeter onto it and see what signals are coming through. tia W

    Wairarapa or Wellington mechanic wanted

    The hose was one down the back of the engine. A fitted hose so ordered from Jeff Gray and had couriered out.
  15. I blew a heater hose recently, luckily just outside a garage - so no overheating yeah! - and had them replace it. I want to get a good BM mechanic to take a look at it as it now seems to lose water and I have seen the temp gauge spike up to red then quickly drop back again. Area is South Wairarapa or Wellington City. Model 1998 540. Any recommendations? cheers W
  16. When do you do specials on E39s
