Most recently I need to replace my alternator and found it odd there wasn't a thread listed there about this.
After a thorough search on the board I came up with nothing. A Google search brought up some threads not found in the board search, including a DIY alternator swap thread.

I think it would be good to include it in this thread.
Here is a link to it:http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/e39-m5-e52-z8-discussion/191354-alternator-diy.html


Best regards,
Pablo-

Is there a fix for the headlamp leveling arms? Or the plastic tabs that hold the platform in place inside? Its where the 6mm hex points are that are broken.

Yes, it's been split to two lines. To find the thread, go to the Group Buy subsection, then do a Find on that page for "aluminum" (or a search within that subforum). But that doesn't get you to any specific post which rj_franklin intended.

I have the 03 sealed headlamps. I ordered a replacement set from eBay for $16 for BOTH headlamps. They're plastic but they're made to be rubberized so hopefully they'll last a little longer. Looks like I will have to do the sealed headlamp repair DIY but looks like it'll be worth the impending frustration. I attached the file... hopefully it works given I'm on my Android cell.

I love going to AutoMD - Auto Repair Information for DIY & Do-It-For-Me Car Owners and seeing how much money I save by getting to know my car better by doing it myself versus everyone else that throws their money away at stealerships or indies. I'm a really frugal dude at heart and I'm really thankful I have access to camp pendleton's automotive hobby center which has drive on lifts and 4-point lifts for $6 a hour or all day bay area rentals for $8 with a wide array of tools available :)
