I had to tighten loose bolts a few times before, that

should have given me a clue to use locktite, but no,

that's just too easy. I am about 100ft from home

and thump!, a 50 ft roll and that's it: HONEY! help

me push Bacchus in the driveway, goes on gear

but doesn't go anywhere! "It is time for you to get a

decent car" - that one hurts! I'm sure is

nothing...crawl under and the left axle is

completely off the diff, what ta hell! "I"ll fix it

tommorow is just a few bolts, honey".

Check your half shafts guys and girls!

I wasn't so lucky as to be near home...!

Guess I know what I am doing this weekend - buying locktite...

Glad that it didn't happen at speed...

I heard a strange sound from the rear, took a look and found two bolts hanging on for dear life. A round of Loctite for everyone!

understood to be absolutely necessary for those bolts: i used 1/2 bottle, well a little less, of RED tite when i did both my half shafts this year. BUT, i better recheck for tightness. Man- to have so many expreience the same thing is scary. I am sending you a bottle of locktite for your xmas stocking Michael- Baccus wont forget that , you know.

at work--after a ten mile drive via Interstate! When I went to back out, the car wouldn't go anywhere...all six bolts had sheared off after working loose!

Amen, brothers and sisters to "check your halfshaft bolts" ...

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
