Re: Wind Deflector Design Idea...

Hi David, looks like I'm in virtually the same boat as you. As you might have seen from one of my recent posts, I am in the process of retro fitting black OEM hoops, just need to find the time to do the job now. Like you I have been looking at which wind deflector I will opt for, standard OEM or per...

Retro fitting OEM hoops

Hi guys, just a quick question. Got myself some black OEM hoops plus brackets, trim etc from a BMW breakers so I can retro fit to my Aug 97 2.8 roadster. For those of you who have done it, is the job made easier by removing the seats to allow more working space? I've had the seats out when fitting A...

Re: Steering wheel shudder

Hi, I took it along to the Loughborough Tanvic Tyres, they confirmed what I had found, did the job and were extremely helpful too.

Re: Steering wheel shudder

Both tie rod ends, track rod ends and boots replaced. Obviously tracking readjusted and a shuddering steering wheel is no longer! Wear in the ball joint inside that rubber boot on the OS was more evident than the NS ball joint, don't know why. All I have now is the usual BMW annoyance which is a sli...

Re: Steering wheel shudder

Right, swopped my tyres and wheels over with my friends Michelin Pilot's and in fact did find that things were a lot better. However, whilst the wheels were off the ground I noticed left and right play on the OS wheel, but not top to bottom. Play could be felt by holding the track rod ends on that s...

Re: Steering wheel shudder

The rears are wider with Falken FK453 245/40 ZR17, and the fronts are Yokohama S306 225/45 ZR17 so I can't swop them, however my mates going to let me put his fronts onto mine from his similar 2.8 as a test. Should be interesting. I will check all the other points too when I'm off shift.

Re: Steering wheel shudder

OK...thanks for the feedback. I'm not running lowered, just standard set up. I've now a list of things to check, so hopefully one of them might lead me to getting it sorted. If I find the cause obviously I'll post my findings straight away, in the mean time thanks for the ideas.

Re: Steering wheel shudder

Thanks guys for your response. I will have all those points checked by my 'indy' (cheers for that info Southernboy). The reason why I had the wishbone bushes replaced is because the problem was there before, and after balance and tracking it was the next thing to check, esp. after the tyre man said ...

Steering wheel shudder

Hi, I'm interested on your thoughts on this. My Nov 97 Z3 2.8 Roadster has an annoying shudder felt through the steering wheel. On a flat smooth road its fine, however once the car hits even a slight bump or uneven surface the steering tends to shudder and kind of dances through my hands, as if ther...

Re: Quick question re boot light

Myself and my friend both had the same problem assuming incorrectly the light would go 'ON/OFF' with the interior light, the video sounds like an excellent test.
Thanks
