General Car Chat / Mini Cooper Exhaust Q...
« on: 13 February 2018, 17:20:41 »
As above, 2006 non S 1.6 petrol.

Lass at work has one with a detached back box ::)

Looking at it, it's a single pipe to the cat flange.

Question is this: are the studs on the cat pipe or the main exhaust?

Looks like a straightforward enough job once the car is off the ground, and the exhaust itself is cheap enough... :y

Help is finally at hand...

General Car Chat / '62 BMW F30 330d EML on...
« on: 05 February 2018, 17:30:34 »
As above, no smoke, no loss of performance and economy pretty consistent at 44-46 mpg over last 65k. Now on 106k, full BMWSH.

Has following two codes:

290900 Air system: air to EGR air mass flow, plausibility measured air mass compared with calculated air mass too high.

24CE00 Hot film air mass meter: ratio of calculated to measured air mass too high.

Apart from EML, car runs fine, plenty of power on demand, no obvious air leaks, idle is rock steady and no hesitation under load.

No live data as code reader cannot access it. No other codes present.

Any thoughts?

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Headlight washer Q...
« on: 19 January 2018, 20:47:26 »
Wiring diagram shows the headlight washer relay using the number plate light feed as its trigger.

Any reason why the nsf sidelight can't be tapped into as an alternative :-\

What's the standard response to NSL +30 on a motorway?

Not me and my Desmond :D

General Discussion Area / Work dilemma...
« on: 14 January 2018, 00:33:00 »
We have several HGVs at work. In order to take them out for fuel or maintenance, anyone driving them out of the gate has to have an HGV license.

We have a supervisor who is merely standing in, and is a really decent bloke that everyone will do anything for. Two of my colleagues offered to take two trucks out of the gate to help him out.

Neither have an HGV license and one doesn't even have a C1...

If they get reported, then all three will face severe disciplinary action.

The dilemma is whether to report them or not :-\

Omega General Help / Desmond Suspension Part Question...
« on: 06 December 2017, 04:16:08 »
Compiling a list of parts for the Desmond, and it would seem that the front springs differ left to right... Left ones being 16mm longer...

Question is this...

Is the left spring only longer on lhd cars? If so, which length do I need? 370mm or 386mm :-\

My suspicion is that the epic has been sloppily translated as the engine is centrally mounted and the battery is compensated by the driver...

Fact or fiction? I genuinely cannot tell :o

As above, plugs into socket about 2" from interior light unit and splits to the sunvisor plugs at top of A posts.

As above... there's a few bits that I am after.

1. Cable tray cover (with or without the cable tray) that runs across the front of the engine.
2. Roll up or metal dog guard preferred (once common on plod estates) but only the genuine ones.
3. Charcoal Load cover, with end caps, must be facelift.
4. Scuttle drain grommet, pollen filter side.
5. Set of carpet mats.
6. Working front central locking motor.
7. Pair of charcoal screw covers from front door card.
8. Cruise control stalk and clutch switch (with length of loom).
9. Pair of working two button remote fobs, button condition not important.

The load cover, load net and mats aren't urgent, and will obviously need collecting/oof couriering unless all from same person, in which case postage becomes viable.

Much obliged. :y
