Re: 'Chirping' N/S/F wheel

Wheel bearing seems favourite, check your brakes and brake shield too though.

Re: Track Rods and Rod Ends

Two in the engine bay, not sure on the torque but you don't want them loose. Nipped up certainly.

Re: April Bluewater meet

Both F1 weekends (Sakhir and Baku) rules me out.

How about April 22nd?

Re: Could someone help me with speaker wire colours

Photobucket has decided it wants to go bankrupt, and has stopped its customers using it.

I'd just find the speaker you want to connect to, and work back from there.

Re: Steering Wheel- Shiny look

Whatever I've got in the bathroom, Carex currently. Just a tiny amount, very mild solution.

I'm sure there are lots of proper alternatives though.

Re: Steering Wheel- Shiny look

Yup, they turn gross over time from palm grease. Just clean it occasionally with a damp towel and a tiny bit of liquid hand soap.

Re: help please

I'd have a listen to it, put a screwdriver on it, and the handle to your ear. If it sounds all tappety, I'd take it all to pieces and have a look underneath for wear.

Re: M-lite torque vs weight & 4x4

At more than twice the traction, you'll be towed away in a nice big cloud of tyre smoke.

I'd try to keep the speed down (if you can) until sorted, vibrations are best avoided, never know what you're going to shake loose.

Re: Help needed re break vacuum pressure sensor

All part numbers can be found on Realoem. Use the last 7 digits of your VIN as the Serial Number to get accurate results.

Re: BMW m135i DCC

The option to configure all driving modes became standard around July 14, so no, that screen doesn't necessarily mean you have adaptive.

Have a play with a VIN decoder to see which options you have.

If it's road speed related, buckled wheels are the usual cause, once you've ruled out balancing.

After checking for buckles, check your prop bearings/giubo, dampers, bushes, etc.
