    197/200/Cup Anti Roll Bar Diameter Thread

    Hi All, I've developed a knock from the front off-side, which sounds similar to the knock which Doogle describes in this thread. My garage has had a look and we've replaced the top mounts and shock on that side (shock was blown anyway) which still hasn't fixed it. In that thread Turkie172...

    Unsteady exhaust/engine noise when accelerating

    Shouldve been more clear, I meant if they were changed at 36k miles, then I was within the service schedule because every 36k miles would be 36k, 72k etc... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Unsteady exhaust/engine noise when accelerating

    Finally sorted this issue... change your spark plugs on time kids! Changed them at 69,500 miles, so within the service schedule time, but from their condition looks like they've never been changed! The cars supposed to have a 'Full Service History' according to the log book, makes you wonder...

    Rear View Mirror and sensor housing loose

    Yes actually! I originally fixed it by putting little dots of silicone between the housing and the glass, but that eventually came away too during the really hot days so I looked into it a bit more... there’s actually just a little holder thing which it slides into to hold it too the glass but...

    Blown shock after <5k miles?!?!

    I fitted new front shocks to my 200 (full fat w/ cup pack) in June, and have covered a few thousand miles since then. Today I took the car for a drive after a weeks holiday to make sure everything was ok, and when I got out I noticed a fluid on the inside of the drivers side wheel. On closer...

    Suspension Ball Joint - Need to ID the part

    That part looks right, if in doubt go to Renaltpartsdirect to find the right part number, then go to eBay to get it a fraction of the price [emoji23] I’ve changed this part recently, pretty easy, just jack car up/use lift, support hub to reduce the angles on the joint, unbolt, replace, torque...

    My LY 200

    Great looking car! That’s funny about the M135i, I have a mate who had an R56 Mini JCW, sold it for an M135i in November 2017, and has just sold the M135i to buy an R53 JCW... He said the same as you, such a capable car and absolutely rapid, but lacked feel and Driver engagement (probably didn’t...

    Lower Engine Mount Inserts?

    Lower Engine Mount Inserts?

    I think my lower engine mount has bitten the dust, is it possible to replace just the rubber inserts or do I have to buy a whole new mount? I was looking at poly flex but they seem to sit on the existing rubber? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
