    I need some help with my BMW 2002

    Before drilling it out I'd suggest you call a locksmith, it may be cheaper. They can open it and once opened you can get the key code of the lock cylinder and have a proper key cut for the existing lock. Price out a new trunk lock first to confirm which option is cheaper.

    Brake reservoir wires

    I checked on my 02 and the other wire looks like it is blue/brown, the other solid brown is a ground. Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk

    Brake reservoir wires

    None of my wiring diagrams have a brake fluid switch other than mention of the brake telltale light on the instrument cluster multi plug. If you have enough wire left on the cap terminal you can compare this with the wire on the cluster multi plug. Then trace in the engine bay and under the dash to see where it is cut. On the cluster there is a red light and a button to push to test the circuit. The plunger on the brake fluid reservoir cap when in a low fluid condition , loses the circuit to light the red light. When you push the button you are likewise completing the circuit to light the red warning light. Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk

    Wind up window issue...HELP!

    I think you sent me one last year and I used it to successfully repair my regulator. Thanks again! Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk

    Wind up window issue...HELP!

    Look like the pivot joint broke on the window regulator. You will have to remove the regulator to confirm this and make a repair. This fitting can be replaced by a new similar bolt from Mercedes. Someone on the form probably has the part number closer at hand than I do. Otherwise new regulators are still available for purchase for around $275, so repair is definitely preferable.

  7. Guy,

     

    This guy seems to have a lot of gauges. I bought a gauge cluster from him.

    Distributors

    I have a 1970 automatic and the distributor I have has a mechanical vacuum advance which connects to the carburetor through a3.8: rubber tube. I don't see any difference between the one I have and the ones that I have salvaged from standard transmission models. From the Haynes Manual, all models except 1502, 2002TI, and 2002 TII use a Bosch IFUR4.

    Rear Shelf panel

    I used the old boards as my templates. You could use cardboard too. Esty can make these if you don't have the tools or space to diy. Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk

    Rear Shelf panel

    I used card board for the templates. One sheet of 3/8" sheet did the shelf and all the truck boards. I think I bought 2 yards of grey vinyl, not an exact match to the original shark skin used by BMW but close enough for me. Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk

    Bike rack advice

    Mine is a vintage Thule gutter rack with a modern bike rack attached. The bike is almost as old as the car. Found the rack on Kijiji for $50. Sent from my STH100-1 using Tapatalk
