General Car Chat / Re: Transfer box
« on: 05 November 2018, 20:10:07 »
My last should of read i got the fluids from bmw. Anyway I have now spoken to bmw and to play it safe iam now booked in tomorrow and they are going to replace both transfer fluid and diff fluid.
 I will give the bill to the other garage and expect a fight to get reimbursed.

To TB it is a all wheel drive 60 40 split until it needs power then splits where it needs it. It handles well enough on wet grass, just waiting to get some more snow. It will do for now and yes the build quality is bad but its easy to put back all the piece that fall off.
 The only stupid one was the rear washer is ran thru the car with a join half way thru. Only found this out when i lost 5ltrs of screen wash under the carpet.

Asking because I bought diff oil and transfer oil from Bmws and my local garage has put the diff oil in the transfer box. When I question this his boss said both the same.

Bmw x3. Could somebody advise please. Bmw state you have to use there transfer case oil. Would it actual make any difference if good quality diff oil was used instead.

General Car Chat / Space saver tyre
« on: 21 October 2018, 16:55:26 »
Could somebody please advise.
I have 235/45/19 on the front and 255/40/19 on the back. I noticed that the space saver is t135/90/17. If i had a flat either on the front or back could i use this space saver without causing any damage to transfer boxs or diffs. Car is a bmw x3.
I have looked on a couple of different sites and the tyre radius is ok but iam more worried about any damaged to could cause.

Another option is your local screwfix. Always looking for staff of any age. I now work in taunton and the youngest is 18 and the oldest is a 64 farmers wife who knew nothing about what we sell but loves the job.

Front stuff all works just back one. No stress now I don't need to worry. I will probably have to find a nice garage to blast some air up the pipe.

Do the bulbs get tired.. the car is a 2004 and no sign in the service history of ever been replaced. Also is it worth upgrading these or just stick to original 4500 ones.

On normal driving everything runs fine. If i give it a boot full to overtake or just to get on i find my cats are stinking of rotten eggs. Does this mean my cats are shot. :'(
