A fold in it, can I buy one of them or I will have to try and bend it, what else stops the mirrors from folding back.

General X5 Forum (E53) / Rear suspension
« on: April 02, 2018, 05:21:25 PM »
Hi all
What to the dump yesterday with a load of wood in the car , loaded car but when I started the car the air suspension failure message came on , when to the dump and got rid of the wood , started  car and no warnings,  and hasn't came on again,
Now my question is do I have a rear suspension problem or was there to much weight in the car ???
The drives ok with no problems it's not down on one side , as it's done 125k could the bags be soft and need changing.
Your thoughts please

Problems / Starting
« on: December 09, 2017, 12:29:04 PM »
Hi all
I have recently replaced my glow plug controller not the plugs, it was starting ok before but as the cold weather was approaching I thought I  would start there as the light wasn't coming on on the dash, all good now, but when I start the car now it seems to splutter and I get a lot of smoke, question do I have A injector or two peeking or could it be something else and how do I check them, ie do a leek test would that show up the problem, all so do I have a cold start valve ??
