Whatever you do,don't try to do rear brakes on an e34. I tried and failed. I have a head that is gushing blood and the 2 rear caliper carriage bolts are impossible to remove. I am waiting for the mobile mechanic to come and finish what I started. After that, I am going to go to the emergency room to see how severe my head is. These idiots on pelican parts and all these other diy sites are nuts. Those bolts are practically welded on there. There is nothing easy about this job. They make it sound like a walk in the park. Changing an air filter or fuel filter or doing door trim is one thing, but this cannot be done by yourself at home in your garage. I am so tempted to sell this car now. They are impossible to work on and the shops are so damn overpriced. I have driven my nissan for 10 years and never had this much b*llsh*t. Nice car, but way too expensive to fix. Explains why people get rid of them when they reach a certain point. These repairs are not simple or easy. The design is crap and not meant to be fixed by anyone but BMW.bs of bmw's being designed to be fixed with regular tools is a lot of crap. Thumbs up to bimmerzone.com. Great parts at excellent prices. Next time i will buy the parts and have my nissan mechanic install them. That bentley manual is sh*t. It is written for a mechanic, not a diy'er. Haynes manuals are the best, however they don't make one for the e34. Wonder why? I think all you guys that do it yourself are full of it. You have to be a mechanic to work on these cars, with thousands of dollars of tools. I haven't paid for a tuneup in 15 years working on nissans. Never had maintainance issues on one either. 140,000 miles on the original rotors.
