Re: B58 broken oil filter/housing

Glad you've got it fixed and good to know the screw method can be used to extract the broken piece

Re: F22 M Performance Splitter

Narrow ones you straddle aren't really any worse unless they're massive, you can always partially straddle them and lift one side up, and as the sides of the splitter are higher than the centre you can actually get over more severe bumps like that then if they were full width. Also the splitter will...

Re: B58 broken oil filter/housing

Yeh it's a dilemma what's best but my feeling is that heat is causing the filter to stick for whatever reason so I'm not sure it's something that gets significantly worse over multiple thousands of miles. I don't know why it would be happening though, it's not as though it's a revolutionary new desi...

Re: B58 broken oil filter/housing

So to prevent that damage on oil filter/housing we should replace it often ? It appears the filter rubber ends are perhaps drying out and sticking to the housing so when unscrewed it grips both ends and the only thing that can happen is the filter is twisted in two. not sure what you can do about i...

Re: B58 broken oil filter/housing

Yeh you'll always get a bit of residual oil sitting in the filter housing as it's pumped through that so won't fully gravity drain, you can always suck it out with a syringe or soak it up with a lint free rag if you need to see what you're doing. Those pick tools may well do the job though yep.

Re: B58 broken oil filter/housing

thanks, saw your PM, i guess the PM's did work then, strange as it says its sat in outbox and not sent :? PMs on the forum sit in your outbox until they're read by the recipient, doesn't work like e-mail outbox :) As to getting the rest out, the base section that's stuck in the housing is rubber I ...

Just replied to your PM, it was Barons in Hindhead but I don't have any names or anything I'm afraid.

Re: F22 M Performance Splitter

Thats my old thread Marco posted and having broke the first one within ~1k miles of fitting it I've now gone another 2 years / 20k with the replacement in it's slightly modified mounting position and (touch wood) not had any issues since. If you have adaptive suspension I'd also strongly recommend g...

Re: Is this normal for a 10 month old car ?

If you paint them make sure you don't paint the hub surface that the wheel touches, just do the strip that's visible when the wheel is attached otherwise you can end up glueing the wheel to the hub if the paint isn't quite dry when you reattach it, and even if it's left to dry properly you don't wan...

Re: Minor annoyances, over eager indicator cancelling and slow air temp change

Could it be that you have only activated the "lane change" setting and it self cancels after 3 (or so) flashes? This can be coded to change the number of flashes. Personally, I find my indicator doesn't cancel soon enough in many instances and, in the early days, used to go down the road alternatin...

Re: Minor annoyances, over eager indicator cancelling and slow air temp change

Yep that's what mine does Marco, just goes up in 0.5c increments every 30-60s or so even when the temperature is vastly different. Case in point when I go to the gym at lunchtime which is a few minutes drive away, it's still not telling the correct temperature by the time I've done the return trip t...

Minor annoyances, over eager indicator cancelling and slow air temp change

Does anyone else find their indicators a little too eager to cancel when approaching certain layouts of junctions? There's a couple of junctions and mini roundabouts I turn right at quite frequently where the approach to the roundabout also very slightly curves right, and what I find is the slightes...

will the same issue raise itself when my M240 goes in for its 1st service or was it just M140's?

Same engine, same issues, my 240 had it at the first service.

Re: Broken Oil filter???

Plenty of value changing oil early but not the filter, paper filters tend to work better with age up to a certain amount and new oil is new oil. Personally I didn't change the filter when I changed my oil at 9k partly because of the known issue with the filters and partly because I didn't want any e...
