Just Another [Sunny!] Friday

Happy Friday!  We may have a record on our hands…2 days in a row of sunshine!  Enough about the weather, on to the BMW’s!  Here’s a quick look at what’s been going on in the shop this week!

We’ll be taking a look at this 1981 BMW 633csi to diagnose starting and running issues that the owner has experienced.

This track-ready beast is a 1989 BMW 325is.   She’s in the shop for a new oil pan gasket, new exhaust hangers, and a new rear main seal. While the rear main seal is being replaced, a new lightweight flywheel and clutch will be installed.

Choking under acceleration, slow wipers, turn signal not cancelling, seat slider not engaging correctly on passenger side…these are some of the issues that brought this 1984 BMW 325e into the shop.  While those issues are being diagnosed and resolved, we’ll also be replacing the timing belt and tensioner, as well as replacing the distributor cap and rotor as part of an M20 ignition tune-up.

While the 7-series was in the shop, the owner had a few other items for Reggie to address.  One of which was to repair the power head rest on the driver’s side.

The insulation tube surrounding the cable was too long, making the cable too short to go up into the mechanism as needed to drive the head rest.  Reggie cut a section out of the insulation, allowing the cable to once again be the proper length.

After tightening everything up, Reggie tests the power head rest to make sure it runs smoothly before putting the seat back together.  Check!
