Frankie, thank you for your time and energy. I will be replacing the backing for the front seats this year, your explanation for doing this is perfect. I will be going to Germany this March for a month and yes I will be picking up the desired Warning triangle that is not in the exported model to the USA. Have a great Holiday.

Which DIY Procedure (if any) CV driveshaft

Comments:
I am building a  CV type driveshaft for my LS3 powered Trans Am and need to build a CV driveshaft.  Your website came up high on the Googles.  I noted the excellent write up and will use BMW components as the power is about the same as a 7 Series (430 hp).  Thanks!

Hello Frank, 
Thanks so much for supporting BMW owners with your DIY articles. I have a '76 2002 and a '76 530i that I have owned for many years and I recently bought an 850i that I haven't even started or driven. 
I finally started on the 850i, primarily fuel system and ignition, so I can get engine in running condition.

Which DIY Procedure (if any) The Dreaded Glovebox

Comments:
Hey Frankie - just wanted to introduce myself.  I have owned 2 '01 740sports over the last 12 years, and enjoyed your DIY on the dreaded glovebox.  I had to repair the boxes in both my 7's.  On the first one, the lock mechanism broke, along with the actuating tab on the latch handle.  I reinforced and epoxied the tab back on the handle, and removed the lock parts which were interfering with the latch - the effect being that the latch now moves farther than it used to, so the door unlatches much more easily than it did with the lock parts in place. I stuck a black plastic button in the keyhole, and everything is cool.  Also - the latch cover on the inside of the door has those 3 spacers which are nearly impossible to install, loose.  I finally put a dab of epoxy on each and stuck them to the cover.  MUCH easier.  On my second 7,  I sensed the latch was going to fail, so I simply repeated the procedure as a preventative measure!
