Hey there, im having a very hard time following the instructions for the wiring of the clutch switch for the 5 speed conversion. I understand how all the wires from the module connect to the appropriate places, but I am completely and utterly confused on how to connect the switch in the pedal assembly. I thought the adapter lead plugged into it, but the connectors don't fit, so how do I connect wires to it? please help me out in any way possible, ive been stressing hard over this problem for like 2 weeks, any advice is greatly appreciated.
Hey buddy I really need your help I have some problems with my BMW and I've read all your posts relating to it, just wondering if I can run this by you.
1. Low Idle. Idle drops under electrical load. Natural idle is 620RPM when in D. Idle Drops to 550RPM when coming to a stop.
2. RPM slightly raises when coming off the accelerator when over 2000RPM.
3. RPM Fluctuates when on light accelerator and cruising, mostly downhill. At worst the car does feel like its jumping back and forth.
4. today, when was at a stop I accelerated hard, power was sent to engine but something was holding me back. All of a sudden it felt like something that was holding me back let go. No hard jolt into gear, just finally started going.
I really think it's my TC. I've checked several things in the car. I am about to pull the trigger on a reconditioned TC. Just wondering what you thought it might me and what symptoms may or may not suggest a TC.
hey i saw your diy 5 speed swap, i recently purchased one that someone had already done. the only thing he didn't do was hook up the clutch switches. the guy had bypassed the ews by cutting the ignition wires that go into it and splicing them together. not sure if he did anything else to get the car to start. from my understanding the car shouldn't have ran just by splicing those wires. is there anything else i should look for that he did to get it to start? i since hooked everything up per your instructions and put it back the right way as far as i can see. is the clutch module needed? the donor car i got the switches from didn't have it,they had two switches. coded everything but my abs, traction light , airbag lights and manipulation dot wont go out. there is no check engine light. the car runs and drives fine lots of power.
Hello dear fanatic!
I saw your interior project, and let me say that you did an awesome work:clap:!Glad that it worked well and it keeps up to today!
I just want to ask what kind of dye you used for the headliner and pillars.I looked into the thread but I only saw cinnamon dye, i didn`t found anything about the black, my bad.
Can you tell me the brand/ of the dye, and how is the most safest to work with it?
At the end you recommended to soak the headliner into the dye, isn`t that going to make the material fall of?It is acrylic, if it had no problem with the adesive, right?
Hey Neil, I am doing a cinnamon leather dye very similar to the one you posted about. Is there anything other than what you posted already that could help me achieve the best results? So Far I have take the entire back interior out and cleaned them with leather cleaner and then with water, Now I am just letting them sit for 24-48 hours like you said and then I will begin the sanding with leather prep. Then on to the dye when the 6 hours of that has ended. Thanks for the help in advance.
