Update 1.6.13 Part 2


It took us about 15-20 mins to get the motor back in. (This was on Thursday) Suspension all bolted and back on!

Got the trans resting back where she should be

Thursday came to an end with getting the motor and trans in and resting by its self in the car. Cradle bolted in and all. I was very sick on Friday so i was not able to make it into work. So this weekend i had nothing planned so i figured i'd get a good amount of work done on the X3! So here's what Happened!

Began running wires and assembling the cowl panel and some other small things here and there.

(Wires ran thru the wheel wells)

Drivers side wiring getting ran nicely!

The cluster of hoses slowly meeting their original resting places...

Putting together the passenger side... SUCKED!!!!!! Took forever figuring out all the wiring harnesses and how they were to be ran...

This little guy here is the control module for your electronic power steering!

ALL suspension and brakes and bolted back on and doing their job!!

Washer reservoir bolted back on and wired up along with all the hoses connected again!

Drivers side and Passenger side Harnesses ran...

This was my progress Saturday (1.5.13).
