  1. Getrag 240 5 speed for sale

    pm sent.
  2. question: rubber hoses for brake fluid

    -- part # 21521163714, genuine BMW hose M7.5x13 - 1 meter roll - $9.43 I would not substitute it with anything else.
  3. It is Enkei APACHE-V, 5.5 -JJx13, ET12. Made in Japan
  4. Starter Motor Housing ceased

    +1 no need to remove exciter winding from the housing Study "Engine Electrical" section 10 in Service Manual document, very helpful To remove solenoid switch you will need impact driver. not expensive. When reassembling solenoid switch make sure to put Blue Loctitie on two screws, otherwise solenoid will loosen up overtime. I am curious how did you do with alternator front bearing disassembly. We never heard back
  5. Valve cover gasket.

    7-8 ft-lb equal to 84-96 in-lb respectively
  6. Valve cover gasket.

    new valve cover gasket alone will not stop oil leaks. the other part to stop oil leaks are those 6 cap nuts. the old version had washer and /or wave washer under them which in most cases one or the other one is missing, therefore you don not get proper gasket compression. New cap nuts have captive washers, which will ensure proper sealing. https://www.google.com/search?q=11617549043&rlz=1C1RUCY_enUS743US743&oq=11617549043&aqs=chrome..69i57.1380j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
  7. How does the shift lever fit together?

    upper section item #21 in your diagram inclusive of following components; https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine-bmw-parts/snap-ring/23411666122/Checkout/
  8. remember there are two different size bolts used to fasten water pump to timing cover. you want to torque them differently. M6: 6.5 - 8 ft-lb M8: 16.6 - 19.5 ft-lb You can find torque specs here. Use Google Excel sheet link for water pump tightening torque spec as the 1st link does not have this info for water pump tightening torque specs.
  9. you have got one wire to e-brake and 2 wires for back up light switch on back of transmission.
  10. quick release on 2002

    can one install "quick release" with OEM steering wheel?
  11. Gooey Glovebox

  12. yes further back. almost opposite of MC, but on the inside of the fender. If you still have that charcoal canister, should be under the canister.
  13. If you car has not been modified by PO, then you should find that pressure switch on inside fender of driver side. there is reset button under pressure switch. First see the nob is extended. go ahead try to reset it .
  14. what year car is it? is possible that this late model car and equipped with brake pressure switch
  15. I don't have any tips for you except that I got rid of my AC system and return the console to original configuration as German engineers intended to be in first place. Before After
