If anyone tries tho Kent Moore route and is unhappy for any reason, PLEASE send me info regarding your problems...otherwise, BMW may be able to continue to make life difficult for all the owners and independents out there. A good example is the fact that the newest Electrical Troubleshooting Manuals don't have component locations for any of the myriad fuses, etc. Of course as a customer, you won't mind paying extra labor so that a technician can disassemble your dash to find that cute little failed electrical gremlin causing your wipers to fail in a downpour. <br>: Of course this won't be a problem when we all have to take our cars to the dealer only because no one else out there has the info to fix them.<br>: Jim Wheeler<br>: Autowerks South, Inc.<br>: 2212 Hickory Avenue<br>: Harahan, LA 70123<br>: 504 738 2156

Thanks for the lead. I read the FedWorld files and I'm now trying to get a comprehensive list of their documents. Has anybody compiled a list for E39?<br>Any tips on which documents are better/worse? I specifically want a wiring diagram.<br>Any tips on reading their microfiche?<br>Can we share info. if any of us obtain any of these documents?
