Z3 Petrol tank support and strap - Heads up

Post by MickZ3 » Mon 05 Nov, 2018 13:40

Heads up BMW provided the parts!

Like many others had an advisory on corroded Petrol Tank support bracket and strap. Ordered all the parts, the strap and pads arrived and was advised that the the support bracket was not available and the order had been cancelled by BMW.

Persuaded the BMW agent to reorder the support bracket by itself and see what happened, it arrived on Friday!

Now to get them fitted!

It would be really useful if you did a "HOW TO" on this issue... I may be in need of your guidance... :wink:

I also got an advisory a couple of MOT's ago but luckily it didn't get mentioned at the last one ... however think it's just a matter of time!
So any guidance would be gratefully received as I've read somewhere that you need to drop the fuel tank to replace the strap ... hope not! :(

Ditto that... I'd hate to have to dismantle the entire rear end sub frame/ suspension etc etc.... Be interested in the procedure..
