Did you try just opening the bleed on each wheel and just letting it flow/drip.

Don't put both ends of the shoes in place only one end.
Put the spring on then pry the shoes back to where they go and then put the pin's in.
I hope you can understand me as i can't think of any other way to explain.

She did phone some guy but he said he would be busy for the two weeks i was away when she told him what car it was.
It's not that bad to do i don't think.
Didn't get the air con belt but that will be the easiest belt i have ever changed when it comes.

Mine just stopped working.
One day ok the next nothing at all.
New FSR and back to normal.

The machine that was on mine was automatic but it took the best part of an hour.
I think the pressure test is for 20 minutes on it's own.

Have you looked if the belt is still on.
When I had my regass the machine did a vacuum test to see if it would hold for twenty minutes.
If it hadn't of held then the regass would have been aborted.

Never driven a 2.0 and would not consider one as in my mind it would be under powered.
Mileage is not a problem if it has good service history and I think the 3.0d would go on for ever if looked after properly.

Strangely enough I normally have a problem when I am here in Egypt but ok this visit.
On my iPad and opening it in chrome. (iPad is only on iOS 10.??)

A lot of places are the same as ats.
If no improvement after regassing then no charges.
Phone round for a price.

Mine didn't work when I first got the car.
Went to ATS for a re-gas which they did but it still didn't work (so no charges).
Took it to a BMW indi I know who's a grumpy git at the best of times.
Told him what I wanted and he just mumbled have you tried the pressure switch in the pipe and walked away (proper grumpy).
With that information I bought a second hand one as didn't want to waist money but it fixed the problem.
On my e53 it is easy to change as it is looking at you just behind the drivers side headlight and just unscrewed but lost no gas as it is a valve type fitting.

In the past when I have had a similar problem I have just opened the bleed niple and left it until fluid drips out.
Back first but only open half a turn same with the front.
Plus keep an eye on the fluid level topping up when it drops a bit.
