    E36 - Saloon - Random Request for help

    o/ All!

    I have a couple of favours to ask! Since it's been so long since Ive taken a couple of parts off I cant remember what way they fitted on

    If anyone could do me the hugest favour and snap a couple pics of behind the engine so I can see how the brake pipes fit in to the holders that attach to the firewall/down to the ABS pump ( If you have an engine removed thats even better ) Theres 2 Black clips which hold the thick pipe that starts from the Brake Cylinder and runs behind the engine.

    And also a couple inside the actual doors on the front if you have your door cards removed.. I have since forgotten where the damn actuators fit in and where they connect up/bolt in...

    And the last thing is the Lenght x Width of the interior roof covering. Im ordering new fabric and Im a fair few miles from the dust collector.. I mean BMW. So I can't measure it -.-

    Any help would be appreciated because currently I feel like I'm playing with a Rubix cube =/

    Is there nothing in the guides or YouTube videos that could help?

    Unfortunatly not most of the pictures Ive found with the engine removed are either US spec which is pretty much the same but you know reversed so some parts are located differently due to the steering rack. Also due to the very specific nature of the request its not something that crops up very often ;D I've managed to work out where the piping goes however its things like which clip the pipes sit in regards to the pipe holders getting it wrong means certain things don't clip in etc so it's pretty frustrating. However I'm in no immediate rush and if push comes to shove Ill just buy another E36 6 cylinder and pull the engine out to have a look a bit extreme I know but for the sake of saving me hours of hunting for photos is preferable xD
