Re: Door chrome trim does not line up with the body

The glass may need to be adjusted. Does the glass fit into the body weather striping? Does the body weather stripping push on the glass. I recall a write up on the subject of adjusting the door glass alignment, in/out direction. I'll try to locate it.

Re: 1984 633CSi Rises again!

Song, look into "life time alignment". Well worth it, I purchase the "life time" when I first got the car 2014 and used the service 4 or 5 times, just to make sure the alignment was correct. Roger

Re: Are Front Control Arm Ball Joints Replaceable?

Song, you want to reconsider and replace all the components at one time. You'll need a wheel alignment. Bottom line, you'll have a better ride, save time and save a little money in the long run. Roger

Hi Song, I purchased BMW part 32732325866 and used it to replace the throttle cable rubber gattor (accordion boot) in my 1989 635, it appears it would work for your trans cable in question. Let us know the outcome. Roger

Re: Taillight bulb holder removal.

I've added the additional brake lights. A universal bulb socket did not work out well for me. I proceeded to order BMW rear tail brake sockets from Ralph, with a little work they're in and looks as it came from the BMW factory as OE. Roger

Re: 1984 633CSi Rises again!

Song, IMO $50 well worth it, I had mine and was charge $75. I haven't been able to reassemble the seats as I can't locate my notes as to the sequence of the washers to mount the back to the bottom. If you have photos or the sequence of that area please post.
