Question 1992 735il Multiple Problems

Hey every1...I have a 1992 735il and it has many problems that I need to get fixed on it.
1. The headlights turn on and off at will. When I turn the switch on for the headlights, they don't always turn on. And when they do they turn off out of no where and turn back on later. Sometimes they stay off for a minute or so, and sometimes for more than 20minutes. I have no clue what the problem is and need help with this.
2. The car shakes A LOT when you pass 45mph. Once again I don't know why.
3. The break lines are damages. Just wondering if any1 can help me with the above problems or know of a cheap place to get the breaklines fixed or possibly a do it yourself method...

thanx

Welcome to the Werkz.

Depending on where you are you should be able to find the brake lines at a local wrecker.

It sounds like you may have a bad connection issue with your lighing problems, possibly bad earth. Do all of you lights go off (parkers, tail, instruments, main and high beam) when you have the problem?

The shaking issue could be some of the front end bushes, or maybe your tires/wheels need a balance and alignment.


Riding in style

with the break lines and shaking, thanx. Ill try 2see what it is and get it fixed. I think it might be the bushings thats causing the shaking but ill check it out. With the lights, all the lights work perfectly except the headlights. The corner lights, tail lights and high beams have no problem.
