Morning Dennis, FRIDAY...thank F$#@ for that.
"huh?" woooops sorry, it is this work thing that makes me say things like that....
now where was I??.... oh yeah final drive has been trouble free since the 3rd rebuild by BMW some years, and many kms ago. can't remember when that last happened, ....nor do I request any refresher course on the feeling.
I keep changing the fluid every 1-2 years, which reminds me to do it again this weekend, bought the oil a month or so ago but things just get keeping waylaid by other things.
I believe the last rebuild someone (BMW mech) mentioned that it had been done up too tight. I am surmising preload. Maybe it is a built in "obsolescence" thing, and it must be someone elses turn in the workshop.
The web chatter, especially in Ozland, concerning FD failures is very quiet, haven't seen anything on this for yonks.
Nice to see that you remember I have two "l's inmy name. I have an HP email addy here at work, and of course there is a [email protected]
in the UK. I am sure he gets 1/2 of my emails then bins them. hhahahah I would probably do the same, the annoying sod!
