Re: 130i with Dave F airbox mod can it cause P0174 and P0171 to lean bank 1/2

As long as the open section of air box is before the MAF sensor, it shouldn’t cause any issues as the Air/Fuel ratio will be adapted to suit any extra air being drawn in by the mod. Air being drawn in after the MAF sensor would cause this, as it’s unmetered. Have you used a K&N air filter with the a...

Sounds more like it could be camshaft bearing ledge wear?
I’ve never heard of a chain stretch on these engines?

Re: DASH CAMS, & why they are a good idea

Exactly ^^
Its bad enough for a car to face that hazard, let alone a biker.
Too many incompetent drivers that just do not think of other road users, and indeed the most vulnerable road users.

Re: BMW recall

If it’s cranking then it won’t be anything to do with the battery cable.

Re: 130i Calipers

I did, great service from autodoc and they fitted fine. You pay a surcharge so initially the calliper is more expensive than shown, however if you can be bothered to (which I can’t) hen return your old unit and they’ll reimburse you the surcharge fee

Re: BMW recall

It’s definitely not a replacement cable, hence the title “install the B+ repair cable”.

Re: BMW recall

As above, the front fuse box is removed from its bracket, and the cable is cut and crimped on. It’s onky the connection point that is faulty, not the cable it’s self.
It’s the glovebox and surrounding panels that are removed.
