      Hello Sir: (sorry, I don't know your first name - we normally operate on a first-name basis here)

      I think it would be awfully tough - bordering on the almost-impossible - to retrofit the BMW...

      Hi Aaron:

      Bruce likely wanted you to fill out your profile because it provides all of us with the year and model type (engine type) of your car, and also your location (Canada vs. USA vs. Europe...

      Hi Salah:

      Yes, I do. It just seems to make sense, because the water pump is a component that typically fails after a period of time on all cars, and when the car is sufficiently disassembled to...

      Great, glad to hear that.

      Before you attempt to replace the leather shift knob, please read the discussions about broken plastic plates inside the shifter mechanism - there are several discussions...

      Hi Salah:

      Try not to laugh too hard when you read this, but:

      You are the LAST PERSON IN THE WORLD who needs to have a functioning temperature sensor on their right battery. The only purpose of...

      Ah, OK, thanks.

      I am in Zurich Switzerland at the moment, but I will be riding south (on holiday) to former Yugoslavia, not north, so unfortunately I will miss you.

      Hi Johnny:

      Looks to me like all of the faults are a result of a dead battery.

      You will note that 99% of the faults are 'intermittent', which means they were not active at the time you ran the...

      I agree with Jorg, I don't think those wires were there when the car left the factory. I suspect they were put there later to support some kind of aftermarket installation, although I can't imagine...

      Salah:

      If the G331 sensor is the temperature sensor on the right battery, then that quote for labour is 'very wrong'. The sensor itself is about a $30 part, and total labour time to change it,...

      The most embarrassing oversight I ever made when working on my car was to fail to tighten the bolts holding the front left driveshaft in place after doing a re and...

      Hi Nic:

      The occupancy sensor for the front passenger seat is most likely the "lowest tech" device in the whole car. I believe it is nothing more than just a couple of metal strips that press...

      Fascinating discovery, Steve. Thanks very much for writing it up.

      Hi Saleh:

      That is a very easy sensor to troubleshoot, and it is very easy to get access to it. It is attached to the negative terminal of the right hand side (starter) battery. It is quite...

      Hi Apper:

      My guess is 'no', because I think there are small differences in the body panels (front fenders, hood) between the original Phaetons (2003-2007) and the later versions. Also, I am not...
