Went and saw my old indy and asked him to listen to the drive line noise... he reckons it's the X drive so he'll come out of retirement for a couple of hours next weekend to sort it for me... (phew)

Put new wheel speed sensors on the rear today. Will see if that eliminates the brake force distribution error....

Took out the leaking radiator and in went the new one. What a mongrel job! Couldn't disconnect the trans cooler lines so had to reconnect it on the radiator mount side and needed mucho gusto force to get it to seat properly.... have run it up but think I've now got a small leak there meaning it might not be properly seated so might be a do over....

lol..... 'til next time.....

wpoll will become famous soon enough
Possibly a faulty heater valve on the firewall - there is a hot water valve for each side (driver and passenger).

My car was the same way, also blew hot in the back seat. Changed the heater valve unit on the driver side inner fender and it's golden now. I think I purchased it on eBay for roughly $20.

^ No better way to do angel eyes on an e53 than to open them up. �� And on euro lights no less.

So nice, I really think those lights should be sent to me for "desert" testing.... I'd even cover postage
