Happy Friday! We’re back with more bimmer goodness to kick off your weekend! If you follow us on Facebook, be sure to check in on Fridays, usually mid-day, for our Parts Quiz. Each week, we’ll post a photo of a part. Correctly identify the part/part number/etc. and win a prize. It’s that easy! Prizes have ranged from BMW accessories to HotWheels to shop credit at Reggie’s Motorworks!
Winter is still lingering around the Midwest, as we saw with this week’s snowfall. Reggie mentioned that the snow was still sticking to the bonnet of this bimmer, despite the over 90° angle. With camera in hand, I went out to take a closer look. As soon as I started taking photos, the snow began to slide down:
Meanwhile, Reggie and John kept busy indoors…let’s take a look!
This mystic blau 2006 BMW X3 came in for a new A/C evaporator, a 10 hour endeavor:
For this repair, it’s necessary to remove the dash first, replace the needed part, and reinstall the dash:
Here’s a video of John at work:
Reggie fabricated ECU brackets for the 2002 project. The test fit was a success!
We just got the cylinder head back today, so be sure to check back for more updates to our 2002 project!
Overheating and no heat in the cabin brought this 1992 BMW 525i in to the shop. A new radiator is just what this bimmer ordered!
This hellrot 1996 328is was in need of a new left rear wheel bearing:
Reggie listened to each wheel to confirm that the left rear bearing was, indeed, the one in need of replacement:
The rusty axle nut needed a little convincing:
This 2005 BMW 525i came in for a new battery and to have a coolant leak diagnosed. Upon inspection, it turns out that she needed a new water temperature sensor as well as a lower radiator hose:
Last weekend, Reggie picked up the 1988 M3 from Diamond Collision after her new diamond schwarz paint job. Stay tuned for more on this slick bimmer!
That’s a wrap for this edition! Have an awesome weekend!
