    Good DIY Projects on a 2002?

    I think the single best bang for the buck improvement you can make on a 2002 is as follows: Remove door panel and clean / re-lubricate window guides and all sliding parts. Replace worn or missing lock rod grommets. These are about the size of a pea, and there are 3 per door. They're the culprits behind almost ALL door rattles Remove and clean / re-lubricate door latch assemblies. Parts / materials required: small disposable paint brushes (acid brushes or flux brushes are great for this. Cut the bristles down to 6-10mm to make them stiffer lock rod grommets (6 per car) Part nr: 52 20 8 238 999 brakleen, lots of rags, lacquer thinner, etc Aerosol lubricant. I steer clear of lithium grease, as it turns in to clay over time. Also - WD-40 is a "meh" lubricant - but it's great for D...isplacing W...ater. If you want to get fancy: Wurth HHS-K or bicycle chain lube is great stuff for this project. Sprays on thin to get into crevices / mechanisms...then sets up firmly to stay in place. Look for broken pieces of old door brakes while you're in there. Grab some heavy plastic and re-insulate the door shell to protect the cardboard of the door panel from moisture - 3M Spray adhesive works well for this. the original door panel clips were white and used small grommets. The new ones are a green one-piece affair and grip tenaciously. There are about 24 per car. 51 41 1 870 718. Now is a good time to clean and lubricate the delicate lock cylinders / levers and everything else in there. The improvement in civity and rattle reduction is dramatic. Super cheap. Immediate gratification....Worth it! 🙂

    Good DIY Projects on a 2002?

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned selecting tasks where the advantages shine of having small bodies to contort under a dash or a child's small hands being able to get into small spaces. That's what my Dad used us kids for! (That and jobs at our body shop where the flat rate didn't pay well and the regular employees didn't want to do them).

    What Lies Beneath… the fenders.

    ...and how's the bottom of the door column?

    RHD Wiper assembly overhaul help!

    Good luck on the bushings, they appear to be quite specialized. More of a bearing actually with a center receptacle that the ball ends on the pivots/drive rods snap into. Been trying to source a R/H pivot PN 61618444109 without much success but have not tried Wallothnesch yet and, at better than $200 for 1 component it may be time to get creative. Both of my pivots have massive play/slop. Going to try to source some used stuff.

    Diameter changes things too. Also, I would be interested in how much or little it can flow..

    that is my business partner's truck ... yes ... it is very very nice here is another view: insta one more note on Nevada ... I have a full set of re-conditioned and brand new aardvarc E21/E24 front rear seats AND brand new door cards AND a correct brown esty carpet ... they were all originally slated for Nevada ... but i swapped all those interior parts across to the Verona car the cars are only 3 months different on the production line ... so the black interior is structurally accurate for Nevada but for a price ... the new brown interior (shown here) could indeed go with the car. regards geoff

    Getrag 245 OD for M20

    I have a Getrag 245 Overdrive 5 speed for the M20 engine. This will fit in the transmission tunnel without needing to chop it on any M20 swap '02 and has speedo cable drive. Comes with modified shift platform to fit in the stock 02 shift position. This was taken from a Euro E12 520/6 and has had an easy life. It shifts perfectly, I have used it for a few years but engine mods have lead me to need to change gearbox. Price includes shipping to the U.S. but is an estimate depending on where in the US you are I get different quotes.

    M20 Triple weber build x2

    Well, haha, we'll see. I'm just going to enjoy the bajeebus out of it. Since the car was taken to the paint shop, a lot has happened. I interviewed at least four paint shops before deciding to use RW Enterprises in Hawthorne. He painted @Schnellvintage's 2002, which turned out stunning (to the tune of winning SoCalVintage the year before last). The quality I saw on the various other cars was fantastic (he had some very nice Porsche's and restomod muscle cars inside). There was a waiting list that meant a 6 month window before he had room, small price to pay. As a fun note, his lead paint guy used to be the lead paint guy for Vector (remember them!?). Yesterday the base coat went on. The interior will get light "overspray", similar to factory.

    Well I have it here, however it's part of the whole system. Perhaps buy everything and sell the rest? Some folks are looking for the bits like intake and rail or the ecu etc... It may be the long way to get there but then again here it is waiting for you. SHIPPED.

    S14 remote oil filter

    Jim’s right on the loss of area - surprised not to see the mathematical equation. As a person who cuts open M10 oil filters regularly, I’ve observed the filter elements typically aren’t close to ‘forgeign material holding capacity’ on a good-running engine (if I understand your post correctly). All bets are off when a bearing spins ... the debris in the pleats is substantial. -KB
  20. Took off the front fenders to see what was underneath the seemingly solid fenders. After burning off the old lead that smooths out the upper seam, we removed all the fender bolts holding everything on. A bit of wiggling with a screwdriver to break the old body glue and the fenders were free. We discovered the blinker buckets were largely gone - and "remade" during a previous restoration of the car - a scotchbrite pad was shoved into the space for body filler to grip to as the bucket was "fixed". The outer edge of the headlight areas were also rotted out and after drilling the spot welds off removed and we made some new ones to put in their place.

  22. That was my dilemma. In the northern climates we are faced with temperature and humidity fluctuations WAY more so than in SoCal. I had to do something. At minimum surface rust can run all along the edges (below the rockers) and in the recesses anywhere from the C pillar back. Rust Bullet and Por-15 are great products but where do you stop? The minute you apply a treatment and a coating you are saying "maybe there is something hiding under there". I decided I don't care. The car is not for sale and if I did sell it, I have tons of pictures showing before and after. At least now I have the peace of mind knowing that I have kicked some rust butt and addressed the hidden and boxed areas never touched by protective coatings before. By the way...Eastwood Internal Frame Coating is a really cool product. If I was so lucky to have a SoCal 02 and lived in San Diego I'd probably do nothing except inspect the rockers, shock tower boxes and the subframe carrier boxes to make sure there is no dirt and moisture trapped inside. Fish oil? That's a first for me. Sounds smelly. Side note: The bottom of my car is in better than average shape for a nothern car likely due to an oil leak for most of it's early life. I had to scrape 1/4" of oily dirt off to find factory undercoat, overspray, and primer in good condition on the majority of the bottom.

    RHD Wiper assembly overhaul help!

    Hi All, I'm currently struggling to source the following part numbers: 6168444109 Right side spindle 6168444105 Left side spindle. I also require the rubber bushing set for the ends of the connecting rods. BMW still sell the complete unit but I would prefer to source just the bushings. Please, could someone provide me with a picture of the bushings and measurements? My original rubber bushings perished so I was unable to take proper measurements. They look like simple rubber grommets which I am sure I could source from a grommet manufacturer in the UK. The Internal Diameter for the connecting rods: 3 x 12mm I.D, ball joint O.D 9mm 1 x 15mm I.D, ball joint O.D 12mm Thanks

    What did you do to your 2002 today !

    Oh yeah, got an alignment at a nearby shop opened up by my pals Jason & Jeremy. I got distracted and didn't take any pictures of the 02 on the alignment rack. But my car scaled out to 2,350 lbs with 3/4 tank of gas, and I have alignment questions for later.

    Getting screwed by scammers is an important step, though. It’s all part of the process.
