    Butyl tape, if in good enough shape, can be reheated and reused. I didn't even reheat and my mechanic thought I'd installed new tape. Wouldn't be nearly enough to cause the vibration I was getting.

  2. Something is wrong with the new driveshaft

    So a couple of months ago, I installed a replacement driveshaft in my sedan. The CSB and giubo both needed replacement, and my indy recommended I just buy a new driveshaft to avoid the hassle of...

    Wait..is it? realoem has a different part number for the sedan. Also the ends look a bit different. Maybe that doesn't matter?

    I see. Is it also referred to as the “bordmonitor”? I’ve seen that mentioned in conjunction with the p/n.

    Shame that the harness is so expensive, otherwise I’d probably try and gather everything...

    Sadness. I strongly dislike the look of more modern Android-type units in the e46, so I guess I'll try and re-sell this one.

  9. Bought an OEM Navigation unit (MKIII?), but is the install worth it?

    So, I bought a nav unit because the price was attractive, on impulse. (p/n 65526934410). However, the install doesn't look that easy, and there isn't even a whole lot about how to do it online. I...

    Are the HVAC issues the same as before you swapped it out? Was the "new" HVAC tested before you installed it, was it off a used car? Same model?

    According to realoem, the relay behind the glove box is for the compressor, but it seems like it also controls the blower. It doesn't seem like there's more than one.

    Bosch alternator already dead???

    After not driving for 2 days, my ZHP was dead. Like, REALLY dead. Not the faintest sign of interior lights-dead. I think my dying cluster is draining it. However, it hasn't been an issue for several...
