    Hey, Nick--can you take a look at the clutch post in the MINI section? I don't know enough about the clutches to answer. I thought I knew what was going on with the post, but I don't.

    Hi Nick,

    I have a 2003 Mini Cooper S with Xenon HID's that I want to convert to halogen. I have always had trouble with the HID's so I would rather just switch.

    My concern is if the switch to halogen is even possible. Is it just a matter of plug and play with the existing wiring or is there more involved.

    Currently my passenger side HID's lowbeam will not turn on. It used to be intermittent but not completely will not turn on. The high beam works and I have checked the bulbs and they are both fine. I have tested the ballast by switching the two but with the same results. I have not found a solution after looking through many different forums, so I would just like to convert to halogen.

    Any help or advice would be appreciated. Can I just convert to halogen?

    I have a or some problems with my DME in my E36 325i 12/1990 (Euro).
    It started with loosing ignition on cyl.3, and apparently no voltage to the no.3 injector. I changed the coil, but still no spark.
    A used DME (403) ran for approx. 10-15mins.
    I found out the coil driver no.3 was fried and changed them all to BU323Z. This worked for 10 sec.!
    Reading the OBD1 codes I get a short blink_pause_long blink etc. I read this as 1 - "Fuel Pump Relay (EKP) / RPM Signal" witch could be crank sensor!?
    Measuring the cam/ crank- sensors (both brand new) in my X6000 DME connector between pin16 - pin44 (cam) I get 1K296 ohm and no connection to ground.
    But between pin88 - pin67 (crank) I dont get anything (now), but I get 0,0 ohm from pin88 to ground!
    Measuring the cranksensor directly, I get 0K96 ohm.
    Am I right concluding I have a short in my wiringloom either from shield to pin88, or ground to pin88, if I`m useing the right scematics?

    Hello Nick, 1988 325i convertible auto trans, Hose from t-stat housing to overflow tank via a moulded 3 way hose to heater core outlet has a plastic tee just prior to outlet connection. hose from tee goes down behind block to ??? Is this a dealer recall fix for the coolant temp problem or something else. I'm replacing all hoses and this is odd. Any chance of quality pic of m20 hosing routing ?

    I need help with my radio. I had a new windshield installed in my 2005 Boxster S & now I have poor radio reception. I removed the cover on the passenger side "A" post and I see the antenna wire connection which, is not connected, but I do not see the coaxial antenna cable coming from the radio. Where is the antenna wire routed from the back of the back of the radio to the windshield? I will attach a picture.

    Hi I have a 94 BMW 325is. Its having clutch salve cylinder issues where the clutch seems to bleed off pressure at times when you are sitting at a light with the pedal pushed in. There are no fluid leaks anywhere. What I found that is wrong is the clutch slave cylinder hose is expanding lengthwise when you push in the clutch. I installed a new OEM hose and it is doing the same thing but not as much. Do you know of a bad run of parts or could there be something else causing this? I can't believe this is normal operation. Thank You racecar8080

    I didn't hear back from you yet (has been about 7 hrs), so I re-bled the system (no air found), and since I can't get to the clutch fork, I installed 3 rubber lined hose brackets to limit the stretch of the hose. So far it looks like it's working, the hose tries but can't stretch. Thanks racecar8080
