Quick Questions

That's the one. Part itself isn't too expensive but getting to it is a bit of a mission so labour will be the biggest chunk of the cost unless you go the DIY route. Ideally, you'd do both sides as well - if one's worn out then the other likely won't be far behind either. Then once it's all apart, you might discover the shocks are worn out as well and have no rebound...

That's what you are looking for... the lighter coloured bit on the top is the actual bump stop. The black tube that clips onto the bump stop is a dust cover to keep the spear and seal clear of grit etc.

Hey mate, that would be this flesh light/number 4?

Yes, but get the motorsport ones, not the standard ones, part 33536858240 I think but verify yourself. And as above, do both L+R at the same time. Keep in mind that this will require removal of rear suspension so you probably want to verify your shocks, springs, and spring pads don't also need replacing. A mechanic can probably tell this with a visual inspection.

Apologies for the lack of model specificity...

Does anyone know if the BMW-appropriate OBD2 to USB diagnostic lead is the same as a Lexus one?

I’ve just installed a new supply hose and I’ve noticed the lower hose to the transmission cooler is touching the block. Is this ok?

The main connector to the water pump is slotted, so I can’t rotate it away from the block.

I'm an idiot. This is the waterpump. For a novice, looking at a pic on RealOEM is one thing, and the engine itself is another.

Where has everyone mounted their seatbelt mounts on the tunnel of an e36? Best place I found was right where the centre hanger mounts and think I’ll have too much angle if I move it back by the drive shaft hoop
