Works okay for a free homemade one.

Which bushings are you replacing, and are the suspension parts off the car?

If you are doing subframe bushings you will probably want a press as my tool is more for the smaller bushings.

You are welcome to bring your stuff around and I'll help you remove as many bushings as we can.

You can bring around by hex key you borrowed last time too.:P

Here it is in action installing a subframe bushing.

Don't mind the rags, they are just there to avoid scratching the freshly painted subframe.

Send me a text if you want to borrow it.

Anyone have a airbag reset tool for an E39? Asking on behalf of a friend. 

Have done some work on the passenger seat and the light came on. Pretty sure nothing wrong just needs to be reset.

 

Cheers

PA Soft/BMW Scanner should be able to reset that. I haven't done it myself, but would be happy to give it a go for you. :)

Did you disconnect the cable or just cut out section of sheath? 

Ps I have a cheap reset tool you could use but am in TAURANGA

If it has a Pac-man connector under the hood I can probably do it for you also.

The cheapest way to do these is get a new cable made half an inch longer by an instrument company that makes speedo cables.

I have spring compressors, a ball joint splitter, and a OBD1 peake tool on the North Shore that anyone is welcome to borrow. Also lots of other things like torque wrenches and air tools.

Hi, I am a new member to the forum, I am currently working on my e36, I suspect a fuel system problem, do you happen to have fuel pressure gauge that I can borrow for a fee?

I think my e36 316i with m43 is using M1.73 DME, does your scan tool work on my car? Can I borrow that as well? 

thanks

Hi all,

If anyone is interested I can provide paper templates for those who want to manufacture their own E46 M3 RACP reinforcement plates.

The plates and process are as per this thread: http://bimmersport.co.nz/topic/57571-karter-16s-e46-m3-journal/

  • The templates come with the expectation that final adjustments will be needed for fitting.
  • The individual pieces of the plates need to be welded together.
  • Some pieces can be folded.
  • The plates were designed with the intent of epoxy affixing to the RACP using 3M 7333 Epoxy.
  • The plates come with zero warranty/guarantee, however I have reasonably high standards and I fitted these to my car.

I am aware that RACP plates only solve part of the problem (and indeed might cause new ones), something which everyone should be aware of before they do anything to their RACP. I fitted these plates as a part solution. I am using the BMW structural epoxy to reinforce the front mount points as well (rear points already done under BMW corrective action in my case). I am not tracking my car, and I'm not rough on it. If you are looking for a super solution you should look at a Mason bar and/or other such more comprehensive solutions.

These plates require DIY skills, welding skills, etc. but are offered as they will help others save time if they are wanting to go down the DIY route.

No charge - happy to copy the paper templates and post within NZ for free.

Cheers,

Matt
