    Raising rear AP Coilovers

    Made sense, thank you... Got it straight back on stands, even with the arm jacked up I couldn't release the bolt either side, proper tight and rusted on, bit gutted seemed easy enough. And spent a good hour or so trying. I clocked my drivers rear wheel is sticking out a touch further than the...

    Raising rear AP Coilovers

    This morning thought I'd raise the rear end of my car, but the whole thing spins when I turn the adjuster with the spanner? Any ideas, did the same with the front, worked a dream... why don't my rears want to adjust. Tried gripping the black thread but can't get enough on it to stop it spinning.

    Scraping Rear Arch Liner

    Ok so the offending screw sheared itself out now I don't have any rubbing... unless the kids are in the back but I am going to raise it anyway. Strange it was only on one side, for some reason my rear driver wheel sticks out further than my passenger. No spacers same ET42 wheels :/

    Engine code location

    Log book says BMN 03G 103 308C, I got this number off the cylinder head but typical both BKD and BMN share this part. Any other ideas how I can be 100% sure? Thanks

    Engine code location

    Hi Chris, Surely it's a BMN then as per factory, as that cover doesn't cross over with any other engine. Hmmm, it was a reputable garage I took it too with some boost leaks who told me it was a different engine but I cannot remember which one they said and they have no record either... I will...

    Engine code location

    Hi guys, Need some help with what engine I've got... My car had an engine swap before my ownership, I believe its not the same code engine but I am not sure and need to find out. The sticker in my boot says its a BMN engine 170 bhp 2.0tdi. I believe it may have had a BKD 140 swap. Is there...

    So when you push it up, spin and it clicks into place... Spin it further through, right?

    Shaking and Rumbling at 50mph and over?

    I'd put money on your front wheels are buckled (from pot holes). Swap rear to the front a test them. I had similar issue and this resolved it In the short term, I then replaced the wheels.
