Hello fron Jasono

Post by jasono » Sun Jun 09, 2019 10:17 pm

Hello, just recently joined up.
we have just got a 2005 2.2 black 130thou , 18" wheel. I am working my way through the forum to gain knowledge to deal with some of the faults.
thank you . I have just put new bonnet release cables on today using info form here :thumbsup: , the old one was stretched and bodged up.
other faults to sort, : oil leak maybe rocker gasket,
rubber manifold boot thing, just found it had ben taped up where it has split.
reverse lights fitted but realise that one long beep when I put into reverse then nothing, I can't hear any of them clicking so maybe a fuse or control unit?
only one key and fob and just been told over £160 from bmw for one
I will put a wanted advert for odds and ends I have found missing. thanks, Jason

Hi and welcome to the forum. :thumbsup:

I've read some positive reviews for "bmkeys" in E. London, but it depends where you are. There is a guy in Warrington who has disappeared from the forum, but a couple of years ago he cut and coded a flip-style key for me for £80. If that might be useful make one more post then PM me for details - you need to have 3 posts to use the PM facility.

Did anyone mention photos yet? :lol:

Thanks paddy.
Mr Tidy , thanks for the suggestions I have sorted a flip key with the Z'er in warrington. :thumbsup:
The car came with one key. I should tell you- :D

Last week I did have fun. I was in the car messing with the glovebox and emptied my pocket onto the passenger seat
so that I could crawl around the car. I found the glovebox fault it was missing 2 large pins 51458397589 for some reason?
So was dropping down when you open it,
I sat down on the seat , got out the car and let the passenger door close, they are heavy eh and so it closed firmly .
AND THEN THE CAR LOCKED ! windows and boot were all closed :D
I had a great fishing time with my brother we used an old wire coat hanger and made a hook, eventually got the key fob up near the window. then used wood strips between the glass and rubber seal , finally pressing down on the key fob to open the central locking. :rofl: oh did we laugh.
