cable tension

i love this forum. always find good and accurate info.

i'm having the same problem and this thread has answered most of questions. BUT...

are you sure you can just move the cable bowden up one notch per this thread?- http://www.xoutpost.com/bmw-sav-foru...e-carrier.html

looks like the plastic clip has two different thicknesses. i cannot seem to get it to go back in on the second slot.

hate the replace the entire thing with zero rust just because the cable has stretched a little.

also; i popped the cap off of the ball at the end of the cable. looks like there should be a way to shorten or adjust cable length at this point as well but it escapes me.

anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

Second that.
I just replaced my carrier yesterday.

I could have done it in about 1hour and 15 min, from start to finish. If i hadn't started fuxxing around with how to put in the new carrier before screwing the first screw in..


I did not put the little wedge out through the hole, and let it rest against the car door. (The part furthest back where the door lock comes on..


I could never get the little hole for securing the door lock lined up, and messed around for nearly 1,5 hours, before i took the door carrier off again, and had a look at it...

Great guide in any case...

Thanks.

Describe how you got the screw (for the ext. lock) to line up because I had the same damn problem and it took me far too long to get it in and dont even know how in the end.

Well.. It is hard for me to describe this in english.

What i failed to do initally, was to put the little black plastic that sticks out right next to the little hole, and rest it on the outside of the car door... The black pllastic is part of the plastic which also is in the hole described.....

What i did was screw it in the front first, which led to the other side to be dangeling... And i thought as soon as i got the screw fastened, it would hold the carrier in place.. It almost drove me nuts trying to get the screw into the lock...


when i finally put the carrier in properly, it only took minutes to get everthing fitted..


I'm sure this wasn't easy to understand. But my english gets limited describing details like this..
