working on the z3

Post by Smartbear » Sat 11 Oct, 2014 18:22

been to my nephews workshop today to
1-change the oil & filter
2-replace the holed air-con condenser & refill with refrigerant
I lent a hand.....

the old, leaking condenser

fitting the new one from underneath the car

pressure testing the system & refilling


last thing was to reset the service lights & also the fuel trim adaptives, drive it back home & wash it :drive

always like pottering around with cars!

It's an option buried deep inside INPA if I remember.

Nice work. Wish I had somewhere I could do stuff like that.
