Man my car has been giving me sooo much grief lately.
I ve just finished replacing the whole cooling system which included new radiator, t-sat, connectors (plastic had turned to mush) and the hoses round the back of the engine. Hours of DIY fun.
Great its running fine and I am thinking to sell it... then clunk-clunk. Crap! The left side RSM has torn out of the tower.
So I ve unbolted the bottom of the shock and in true bush style I'm running it on the spring till I can get it fixed.
I ve found the part on realOEM.com: SUPPORT FOR SHOCK ABSORBER LEFT 1 41148169027 (left side, 28 for right) and will try to get one shipped to Fiji asap.
Any one done this job before? I read that I just need to drill out the spot welds and drop the new one in and weld. Any advice would be much appreciated.
As soon as this is fixed I'm selling it. The bimmer dreamer has turned into too much of a nightmare.
