  1. Too late to edit, I just realised that the tensioner may even have been changed by a previous owner. Who knows what the indy garages he took it to might have fitted. So even if I knew it left the factory hydraulic that wouldn't necessarily help. I can't find a part number for the mechanical tensioner using my VIN though. Are you able to find one and give me a price for that also, or are they now NLA?
  2. For PL67789 From unofficial online parts diagrams, I get: 11 28 7 636 379 Alternator/pump belt 11 28 7 512 762 AC belt I may also need the replace the tensioner pulley on the alt belt. Before I remove everything, Is there a way to definitively tell from my VIN whether I'd have the hydraulic or mechanical tensioner? I'd guessed from my late production date - Nov 03 - it'd be the later hydro type but peering at it from above it looks more like the earlier mechanical. I'm no technician though, just someone who reads too many forum posts...
  3. can't think what else to call it, so here's the part number off the broken piece :) 51718244046 VIN PL67789 thanks

    E46 330ci service parts

    Since posting I've discovered the engine air filter isn't on the Inspection 1 (which I'm doing) schedule, it's only changed at Inspection 2. Could you quote me with and without that, and depending on the cost I'll either do it anyway or pull the one I have out and see how dirty it is first.
  10. Could you quote me for the following inspection service parts for VIN PL67789 88 00 2 157 523 Service kit, oil filter plus cabin filter 13 72 1 730 449 Air filter thanks

    FM Antenna cable

    Could you quote me for the FM antenna cable that connects into the back of the radio (non-nav) on a 2004 E46 facelift coupe? ( I believe the other end goes into the antenna amp box on the C-pillar, and part number is 61 12 6 912 488 ) thx VIN PL67789

    E87 LCI Mirror cover

    Ah, probably easier for me to source one used then. Thanks though.
  13. Could you quote me for 51 16 0 038 345 nearside mirror cap, painted Titansilber It'd be for VIN E436073 Thanks
  14. Could you tell me the price for a new bonnet safety catch lever for VIN PL67789? I have part number 51 23 8 238 459. I'm after the lever that pops out from the left kidney, not the one in the driver's footwell. (Never had a problem with the lever on my (older) previous e46, but despite lots of greasing this one has refused to let me lift up the bonnet a number of times. If they're not expensive I might just replace it) Thanks

    e46 Antenna cable

    Yep, that the fella. Thanks As they're that much though I think I'll have a go at crimping a new plug on the end of the cable first. Nothing to lose... Expect me on the phone if it doesn't work!
