  • Welcome to BMW 2002 FAQ

     

    It does not matter if you have had your Vintage BMW since it was new or if you just acquired your first one, whether you have one BMW 2002 or many Neue Klasse cars sitting in your garage, whether it is dedicated race car, or concourse queen, or a crusty daily driver, BMW 2002 FAQ is the place for you.

  • 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

  • eWorld Turbo Manifold

    I bought this out of curiosity because it’s relatively low profile compared to what I usually see. Seems ideal for a small turbo setup without cramming everything in there. The welds are not amazing but do look pretty thick and it looks like they cleaned it up with maybe a die grinder. The tube is pretty thick and the flanges are way thicker than the stahl flange. I think this might be a bit tougher than the really cheap turbo header that one mainly finds on ebay. Anyone tried this one yet?

    How to use 6025-1 Cam Removal Tool?

    Thanks to an incredibly generous fellow '02er I have a loaner 6025-1 cam removal tool. That's the good news.   Bad news is I can't figure out how to use it! It doesn't seem to line up. If I get one set 4 tabs inserted into intake or exhaust valve rockers, the alignment of the other side seems to be off by about 2-3mm. I have, of course, tried spinning the fixture 180 degrees with no better fit. See pics for illustration of the issue. Ignore the top right rocker, I didn't have the c-cli

    Article 1: Original Author: Sam Schultz Valve Adjustment for BMW 1602-2002 M10 Motor The process of adjusting the valves needs to be done at every major service.

    Frankenhaar -How To Replace/Repair Rear Seat Cushions

    I had seen this idea mentioned somewhere but never saw anyone try it.  It works!   So the 50 year old hard and crunchy gummihaar seat pads in our cars just turn to brown dust and slowly disappear.  While new FRONT seat backs and bottoms are available ($$$) we have not had rear seat ones forever.  Working off the knowledge that other manufacturers also used the product opens up new possibilities.  So the vintage VW folks have gummihaar pads available and at a reasonable cost — hummm…
