Parting out '98 BMW 540i

Today i'm starting to strip everything worth keeping off the car. It was hit pretty good in the rear end and the hood and side fenders are not any good either. Only damage seen under the hood is a small plastic fan harness is cracked that sits just behind the grill. The doors are all good with no airbags set off. No idea what the mileage is, the odometer on the title says exempt, but the (i think) state inspection says 98,000. I'm told the engine runs, but I can't start it. When i get to that part, i'll pressure test it (with video footage). If you guys need anything specific or want pics, please feel free to ask. It's in my garage and well lit, so i can easily take any reasonable pic request's. All prices for parts are going to be sold to whomever offers an acceptable amount. Yes, i'm just clearing this out as quick as i can.

-Josh

I am looking for a arm that is in the sunroof assembly. It holds the rear wind deflector on the PASSENGER side. I will attach a picture of the piece to help you visualize what you are looking for.
To remove this piece you need to put the sunroof in tilt. This can be done using a Allen driver if the car is turned off by removing the headliner piece behind the front map lights. There are 3 bolts each side on the interior base of the sunroof glass. To see these pieces you should remove the accordion looking rubber shade like piece that connects the glass to the body on the side. This piece is just press fit. Once those 6 booths are out the sunroof glass comes out. You will be able to see this piece. To remove unscrew the torx bit that is on the rear sunroof glass mount. The piece can then be wiggled out. Please let me know how much you would like for this piece and if you still have it. Thanks a million. Link to pic of piece is attached.

Sorry for the slow reply.

My sincerest apologize for my late response. Mail thought this site was junk and I've been busy with getting this car stripped and boxed before my parents get home. I had less than 2 weeks, Now i'm a weekend away from having all the parts off.

I got the sunroof out. I don't see those arm pieces. i'll attach a pic of the sunroof out. The sunroof was jammed by that sliding shade cover. That blows my option to sell it as one unit. Let me know where to focus in on the pic i post to get those parts.



And here is a temp site i made displaying the progress of the car from start to finish with a little info about me since i'm a greenhorn in these forums.

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/32536281/BM...own/index.html

Oh, BTW does anyone know how to remove the windshield and the rear window?! Not having the best of luck finding anything other then windshield WIPER replacement and rear window DOOR repair. Its driving me nuts!

Many Thanks,

-Josh

I have that. I didn't take off the door panels from the doors. Simply took them off, wrapped em and kept them outta the way. Not sure how far i should strip parts off to sell them honestly. Is the shade a part of the panel?

Yes is is part of the door panel - is definately noticeable if removed. I can understand wanting to keep all one piece. If you decide to part out the door pieces let me know. Thanks

My apologies about the front bumper cover. I was dealing with complications from a surgery when u posted and forgot when I finally got my brain off the pain retardants. No, i'm sorry. I don't have the front bumper cover. It was broken where a good amount of the screws went thru to hold it straight. Only thing good was one shock absorber and the solid metal reinforcement bar was unharmed. Somehow the radiator and a/c condenser was fine. I scrapped those to be on the safe side.

I'll sale the panels individually to you. What's a fair market price to you? I'm flexible. Also, if u took ur panel off, is there any things i should know that would mess up the airbags or window electronics? I'm assuming that stuff is safely tucked away inside the metal door frame. (main reason why I let the doors just sit for a bit)

Both front seats are sold. Still have the shoulder seat belts and complete rear seat. What trim are u referencing? On the side and rail of the seats or the trim on the B pillar or door jams?

upper dash

I need an upper dash for a 2001 M5 in black; basically the dash above the wood (or other) trim - above the IP and glove box.

As posted elsewhere...am looking for OEM exhaust (manifold back), especially the catalytic converters if they're fully functional and not aftermarket. Please let me know if you still have them and if you're willing to ship.

thanks
