I know there is a thread running called what did you do to your bmw today?, but this is a thread of what never went to plan.
I will start, so I received my radiator adjustment screw today after 5 days of waiting as it had to be ordered from bmw. Any way I originally ordered it as I had 1 drop of water seeping out or the old screw that came with the replacement radiator I got every other day. I took a guess that this screw was for a manual version so I ordered the auto version. So as said it arrived today so I set about changing it, and as I thought it did have a manual plug in there, these are shorter and don't have a hole for the heat exchanger for the gearbox nor does it have a bottom rubber seal, and it is shorter. well I thought great I will get this done and the car will be ready for the road at long last. But as with all critical things the darn plastic lugs broke off as I over tightened it!! so with no way of holding it in it is now a new piece of rubbish. new 1 now ordered,,,, 5 day wait.
so I used my spare time and did a lot of plastic welding with my soldering iron. very pleased.
