  4. Sexy topic! Broken seat mechanisn

    There should be one c clip on OD of that piece. Take it out and inspect ID of that bushing secures with clip
  5. Sexy topic! Broken seat mechanisn

    If the circled part keeps falling out therefore cross bar falling as well is because the circled part should have "C" clip at the end of it. I know part drawing does not show it either. What you need to do is to make your own "C" clip from piece of thin spring. Cut one spiral try bring the ends closer and press it on the end of the circled part. Don't forget to get a couple of rubber bands.. (item #3)
  6. Tire Pressure for 13" Rims

    I've been using F 28 and R 26 PSI

  10. Stop light switch and Temp Sender

    Is temperature rating on temp sending switch visible (e.g, 45, 65, 17 CEL)? - Thanks.
  11. Fu Yao Windshield

    neither do I. You said they make "glass" for BMW. Do you know if they making windshield for BMW? and if they do for modern BMW's then I just can imagine they have to go thru BMW tight quality inspections and standards. I bet they sell windshield for 40 years old car as aftermarket. That's when stuff gets scary. I can be wrong... Check with dealer and find out if they can tell you who is making it for BMW
  12. No. see instruction below.
  13. Emissions equipment

  14. Transmission - Practice makes perfect?

    Nope. Actually I rebuilt my trans couple years ago (split it, replaced bearings, etc.). Used Gray RTV on I/O gasket and bell housing to the back side and have no leaks. Two step that I always follow; 1). put it back together and hand tight hardware, 2). Return 1/2 hour later and torque bolts to specifications.
  15. Fuel check valve?

    on 76 model there was a check valve at fuel return line. No BMW fuel none return valve part No. 13311263522 (NLA from BMW, but W&N has one for 45 Euros). The one echappe shown above will work just fine Only place BMW placed them on was at fuel return line after valve 13311259194 on late model 2002
