Re: Key Lock in Door just spins round

Graham, I'm not joking since I live on the coast in SW Scotland. Have you heard the description of the seasons in Scotland? There are only two - June and winter. We don't have snow or fog, rarely have frost but we have almost continuous wind and rain at this time of year. My poor Z3 lives outside an...

Re: Key Lock in Door just spins round

Thanks to both of you. The eatsleeptinker instructions are what I need to follow. As soon as it looks as though it won't rain for a few hours I'll give it a go - maybe next May then!

Key Lock in Door just spins round

While I have the interior out of my Z3 trying to dry it out and fix the leaks, I have the battery disconnected because the seats are out and all the switches on the centre console are unplugged as well. I have been locking the car with the key in the driver's door. Two days ago there was the sound o...

Re: DSC Warning Lights on

Robert said "From memory, I seem to recall that there is some kind of calibration process that has to be carried out on the new sensor. I don't recall if this needs software, or if it is automatic, requiring the car to be driven. I do know that INPA will show the individual outputs from the sensors,...

Re: DSC Warning Lights on

Thanks for those thoughts. I am not close to Amersham, living as I do in Troon, SW Scotland!

The link that Robert sent would be a lot more useful if I could see the pictures. Is there any way to make them appear? I know that Photobucket have screwed up lots of forums - is there a work-around?

DSC Warning Lights on

The car is a 2002 2.2 Sport. I have the brake fluid and the DSC lights permanently on, which the handbook tells me is caused by the DSC system. I have taken the car to a local independent workshop that I have used for years and have always found to be excellent in the past. The story so far... My ca...

Thanks all. I have sealed the plugs at the top of the pillar with Shoe Goo and despite some serious rain yesterday here in Scotland, all is dry inside. Fingers crossed it remains so!

Picked up my new-to-me Z3 yesterday and it rained overnight...

And this morning I have rain on the pasenger seat and on the passenger door sill (see photo). The soft top on this car is virtually new and looks fine in all the places where rain might enter. I have been unable to locate the source. What are the most likely places and how do I fix them? My passenge...
