Re: What problems with Crankcase Breather fitted this way?

Ok thanks Adrian. I hope i can find original crankcase vent hardware. In the meantime am i better of disconnecting from the air filter, and just connect it to a separate standalone K&N vent filter? Sandy

What problems with Crankcase Breather fitted this way?

Please see the attached picture. My mechanic has the crankcase breather connected directly to one air filter. I have also attached another picture of a V12 (bottom picture) with what i believe is the original factory way, where you can see the breather go into the four carbs. Mine goes just into one...

Re: AC Compressor- Anyone have this happen?

Thank you. Is there a simple way to diagnose if the engine mount is sagging or the pulley is out of alignment?

AC Compressor- Anyone have this happen?

Turned on my AC today, and you can see in the pictures bits of the rubber were wearing out. Any idea what is causing this and what is the fix?

Indicator Flasher Location

Hello
Can someone tell me where is the indicator flasher location, and how does one get to it on a Series 3? I looked inside the center panel (near the fuses) and in the engine area and could not find it. It stopped working so there is no sound to follow.

Flickering Headlights

Hello....when my car is running and i turn on the headlights, it flickers a little bit. Is this a sure sign the alternator needs to be replaced, or can it be something else ? Any advise will be greatly appreciated
