You need to read out the ECM/ECU for the trouble codes from the OBD interface. The ABS light will go on for the following reasons: Defective ABS module Defective ABS sensor on a wheel Low battery power(this will cause the weirdest error codes) Brake pad sensors defective or worn brake pads Wiring harness problem. Corroded plugs Read error(probably fixable ...

If this is an E39 or E60 chassis, you should be able to use GT1/DIS or INPA to probe the computer and figure out what is setting the ABS light. There are a bunch of possibilities that might cause this, including: lack of wheel speed sensor signal failed seals in the ABS unit failed solders (usually microscopic cracks) that prevent the solenoids from ...

The ABS light is an indicator of an error caught by the ECU. It usually is an error for a defective ABS sensor or a related brake issue. It's difficult to tell what exactly it is without reading the error code. Some specific problem might be fixed by reprogramming the ABS module, others won't. Depends on the issue and the year of your 528i. Once you get the ...

You can ride it up but not hard at all That spider spring works in conjunction with the ramps in the rear to all the clutch to slip under engine breaking that exceeds the redline of the bike. So you won't want to be downshifting from 5th redline to 2nd gear until you get this fixed. You are very lucky the spring losing it's two arms didn't do more damage. ...

I suspect this will get closed soon as 'too localised' and 'shopping'... I don't know of any such courses, but I'd suggest getting in touch with a local community/sixth form college - find one that offers a car mechanics course/BTEC etc and talk to the teacher in charge of that course - they might be able to arrange something or put you in touch with ...

You can use fiber glass cloth and fiber glass resin It will hold everything together nicely. It won't separate from the part later if you clean all of the surfaces enthusiastically. It's easy. I recommend getting some disposable gloves to use while you do this. Once you have the bits in pieces in place properly you can line the inside with some fiber ...

Jam your hand up in there Move crap around. push on it really hard, various things and keep hitting the remote while you do it. Eventually you will get into the trunk with brute force....but damage anything on you path. You can reach in there and do it. My kid did it for a Malibu so you should be able to with the same. I have one here, 2003, if you ...

That's not steel and chrome, that's aluminum. There is a coating over the rim. It's some sort of epoxy. It seals the oxygen from touching the aluminium so aluminium oxides aren't created. What you see there is aluminium oxide on the rim. I will slowly eat the rim and 2000 years from now it will be a small piece of aluminium. To stop the creep of ...

We see this hard chrome chipping and often. It is caused by the materials; specifically the large hardness difference between the chrome plating and the aluminum wheel material. The more flexible wheel changes shape as it is stressed by road bumps and the hard chrome cannot flex so it breaks away. Then corrosion gets going under the cracked away flakes. ...

Even if the seat does not fold down, you can unbolt it. Remove the bottom part first, then the back. This happened in my mother's Camry several times(bad latch mechanism) and I had to remove the seat each time.

If the trunk was overfilled and had to be pushed closed, you might have success with pushing down on the trunk (with as much force as you safely can) while trying to operate the mechanism. If a force inside the trunk is pushing up, the mechanism could be in a bind. You pushing down will hopefully counteract that force enough to free up the lock.

When I was doing drag racing, one guy on our bulletin board died because his jack failed. This stuff does happen and the risk is real. As everyone said before: Use jack stands, and if you don't have any: go buy some. They're cheap and your life is worth a lot more.

It will most certainly be more expensive if you get a professional to repair this bumper for you. However, it will be a safe investment on your trade-in if it is restored professionally. We cannot discuss price on this platform, but, the cost to do this yourself versus taking it to reputable shop will be substantial. If you decide to do this on your own, it ...
