Hello friends, I'm interested in which speakers and amplifier are the best for the bmw e53 (not too expensive) and is there a big difference compared to the factory ones? I have a DSP system.

There are several threads about changing speakers that you can search. I would start there. I would choose one of those to post your question.

I got in the new turn signal sockets, but it didn't fix the turn signal. After wiggling it for a while I found that it would sometimes work. So I smothered it in dielectric grease and put it back together (with the old bulb) and voila, it's been working for two days now. Sounds like I wasted $65 but at least it's something I'll never have to replace again.

I am also ordering OFHG parts and new power steering hoses. Time to fix those slow drips. That will be my next project.

I installed four new knock sensors on the new 4.6 as well as valley coolant pipes and a used coolant manifold.

Replaced the left rear wheel bearing today. Pretty straight forward - dropped the exhaust, removed the left rear axle, used a slide hammer to remove hub from old bearing, removed old (KOYO) bearing and installed new (KOYO) bearing, installed hub with bearing tool, re-installed rear axle etc...



Ah, the sound of silence... (that's a great name for a song!).

That looks like a pretty loud bearing. I do rear bearing swaps without dropping the exhaust or removing the axle from diff. I found the right combination of extensions and swivel I can loosen the four e-torx around the outer CV joint.

Then for install, I cut a slot in the end of the bolts so I can spin the bolts from the outside with a long slotted screw bit and screw gun. (then torque from under with the afformentioned double wobble extension).

Do you have lift access or done at ground level? Also is there any difference from 3.0i regarding the exhaust that would make it easier other than no salt environment (unless you are close enough to the ocean).

This is the second rear bearing I've done and while I considered using your method, Andrew, I went with what worked last time.

Dropping the exhaust on the diesel is so simple, compared to the petrol models, so it's easy to get to rear axle bolts at diff end. You cannot actually remove the axle from the chassis but once unbolted you can move it out of the way.

Add to that the fact that I always replace the four e-torx bearing mount bolts, having clear access to knuckle for bolting up the new bearing and driving in the hub makes life easier.

How do you get 100Nm of torque onto the four e-torx bolts with your Dr. Suess wrench, Andrew?

Oh I can't. That's just for snugging. About 15 or 20 inches of extension with two wobbles Get me where it’s really easy to use a torque wrench
