    I called in to the store today to talk about a problem I'm having installing sway bar bushings on a 1991 BMW 318ic (E30). After I put the bushing on the bar, and the mount around the bushing, I cannot get the bushing to seat and get the holes remotely close enough to put a bolt thru and catch the nut. It's 21 mm, i went to dealer to check the bushing they'd sell me and it was the same size. When I stand the new bushing up against the one I took out, its about 3/16" taller *the new one.

    What am I doing wrong since every description I've read makes it sound like a two-year old could do this.

    HI Jared, I posted a clutch question from user billyp828..question is if the clutch flywheel could work properly however create a vibration which causes me concern. It just started happening after my son was driving the vehicle pretty hard, and has 146K miles on this clutch. I changed the Guibo Flange, however when letting the clutch our in first gear with the wheels off the ground you can see the drive shaft making a very obvious jumping and knocking noise then smooths out. I thought it was the center support, however upon inspection it appears to be in perfect shape? I took it to a Import mechanic and he drove the vehicle and said the clutch& tranny appears OK However I know it is no longer has a smooth rev like it was before. It reminds me as if the flywheel or clutch is no longer balanced? I'm in the process of pulling the tranny, 1995 BMW 325i is a job, The vibration is such that you can feel it more than you can hear it...and if starting off under a pull it is worse.

    Hi Jared
    Let me begin by telling you that I am no car expert - an enthusiastic novice at best! I recently purchased a Bosch fuel filter from you guys for my 1989 325iC. The entry and exit points of my current BMW filter are both at the top of the cylinder - the fuel entry nozzle has a wider diameter and accomodates a wider fuel line pipe than the fuel exit nozzle which has a narrower fuel line.
    My new Bosch filter has fuel entry nozzle at the bottom and exit on the top of the cylinder - not a problem, but both nozzles share the same narrow diameter of the fuel exit nozzle on my original filter. Therefore, the wider fuel in pipe is too wide for the Bosch. Do you think my fuel line may have been modified by a previous owner? Any suggestions welcome.

    The 101 Projects forum has seen several odd-looking posts lately, but today it is filling up with spam.
