  • Welcome to BMW 2002 FAQ

  • Chillin' Louie: To Coldly Blow (Part IX: Firing it up, buttoning it up)

    Okay, with the compressor and bracket, condenser and fan, evaporator assembly, receiver-drier, hoses, and wiring installed, it was time to fire it up, then button it up. Similarly, with the project itself complete, it's time to button up this series of articles. As such, this is a long piece that touches on a number of topics.   Leak detection   There's a whole chapter in my a/c book devoted to leak detection, and specifically to the use of nitrogen or other dry inert gas to

    Chillin' Louie (Part VIII: Wiring)

    With all the major components installed and the hoses made, the next task was wiring the system up. This will be a short one (that's not an electrical joke :^), as in a car like this, the wiring is trivial.   Wiring diagram   Someone (Conserv, probably) had posted a copy of the Clardy wiring diagram. It is below.     More general, and probably more useful, is the diagram I have in my a/c book:   Generic wiring diagram from Just Needs a Re

    Chillin' Louie (Part VII: Hose Fabrication)

    The tool you need   Way back in the introduction, I told the story of Ed Ellis ("Ellis The Rim Man" to you Bostonians) making the hoses for my E9 3.0CSi 22 years ago by the curb on Comm Ave. I watched as he crimped on one end, cut the hose longer than it needed to be, put it through whatever holes in the body it needed to pass through, threaded the other fitting onto whatever component it needed to attach to, test-fit the hose into the fitting, trimmed it to length, "clocked" the fitti

  • My wiring nightmare... where do I go with it?

    Back story: 1971 2002 6 fuse This car is new to me, and came with a few issues that need sorting. I've been going through some mechanical and fit & finish issues, but the part that is more of a mess than i anticipated is the wiring, which isn't my strong suit.  It all started with the blinkers not working. I changed the flasher unit and they started working again, however when I put on the left signal the dash lights also came on, when i turned on the right signal the rear right ru

    I promised some details on my attempts to do my own Zinc Plating, figuring "How hard could it be?".  Well, if you have oodles of time like I do, (recently retired), it can be a fun and satisfying part of your restoration journey.  The hardest part is ordering all the supplies and pieces you will need to get the results you want.  I learned some things that should save you time and money if you decide that this process is for you.   Supplies There is a laundry list of things you wi

    Front Subframe Restoration

    I took my rusty front subframe over to my brother's house and he welded in the IE subframe reinforcement plate.  The front subframe received the same powder coat treatment as the rear, RAL 7043.  I had both of them done at Anocote Powder Coating in Mira Mesa.  They also did the ST Sway bars and knocked the surface rust off of my rotors and drums for about $300 all in.  Assembly was pretty straight forward, new rubber stock bushings, new heavy duty IE control arms, new OEM Idler Arm bushings, DIY
