No but you will need to have the vehicle in a roadworthy condition as far as tyres -steering -lights and brakes go. Sometimes it is better to put the car on a tilt tray as the cost will be about the same without the hassle.

Remove front passenger headrest.


Depending on where you are, removing a safety device could give you problems at safety inspection. I'd recommend that you check with your local police or vehicle insurance agent before you get to far into removing them.

You insurance company will likely decline to insure the second home as you have no Certificate of Occupancy which tells them it was built to code and thus meets minimum safety standards. I doubt that they would "rat you out", though. You could always go to the local building official and apply for an "after the fact" permit. This will likely entail your having to expose wiring and foundation components etc., but at least you can get it insured once you have the C of O. This obviously has a potential downside, especially if you have zoning issues like setback requirements or too many structures on the property and so forth.
Best of Luck.

2004 series 3 BMW 316i fitting a Towbar mainly how to remove rear valance


you shouldnt need to remove the rear valance to fit a towbar ,i would suggest you contact a authorised towbar fitting workshop as it is not permitted to fit a towbar yourself ,it has to be done by a company with the correct authorised dealership as the towbar has to be certified with a europeon certificate of homoglonation and a plaque .then vehicle has to be presented at the vehicle inspection station for conformity .Then the paperwork of the vehicle changed to show its fitted with a towing hitch and a fee paid for this service .alicantecoli_18.jpgalso the electrics have to be connected by a auto electrician as every annual vehicle inspection the electrics are tested as well where a towbar is fitted .

This service generally involves an oil and filter change , tire rotation
and a safety inspection. While changing the oil, the mechanic will be performing visual inspections of the brakes, belts and hoses inspecting for any fluid leaks,, listening for any abnormal noises, and paying attention to any irregularities in the operation of the vehicle.
If you have your service at the dealership, have them check and perform any recalls on the vehicle.
Possible Repairs Needed at the 20,000 Mile Service It's not uncommon for your vehicle to need a brake pad replacement at this mileage, and on some vehicles the tires may need replacement.

Recommendations
  • We recommend considering replacement of the air filter every year or 12,000 to 15,000 miles.
Why this happens
  • If oil has contaminated the air filter, it should be replaced. Oil contamination may indicate a problem with the PCV system.
  • Air filters will need replacement more often in vehicles driven in dusty and sandy areas.

The emissions test may vary from one state to the next. For example in NY the 1990 model would not have to have an emissions test, which for newer vehicles is part of the Inspection.
The safety inspection includes:
front and rear brakes
parking brake for a manual tranny
All lights on vehicle, turn signals, brake lights
Horn needs to work
Wipers need to work
Tires need to have adequate tread
Any cracks in glass (windshield) need to be within safety limits
on older vehicles, mechanic may also look at steering linkage, brake lines for severe corrosion.
And basically any malfunction or damage to the vehicle that would place it in an unsafe condition. That could anything from a bumper that's ready to fall off to a gas leak at the gas tank.

30000 MILE CHECK UP , WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE ?


  • At 40,000 Use this Sheet

MAINTENANCE II

1. CHANGE ENGINE OIL AND FILTER. Reset oil life system. Refer to Engine Oil Life System. An Emission Control Service. 2. VISUALLY CHECK FOR ANY LEAKS OR DAMAGE. A fluid loss in any vehicle system could indicate a problem. Have the system inspected and repaired and the fluid level checked. Add fluid if needed. 3. INSPECT ENGINE AIR CLEANER FILTER. If necessary, replace filter. An Emission Control Service. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency or the California Air Resources Board has determined that the failure to perform this maintenance item will not nullify the emission warranty or limit recall liability prior to the completion of the vehicle's useful life. We, however, urge that all recommended maintenance services be performed at the indicated intervals and the maintenance be recorded. 4. CHECK TIRE INFLATION PRESSURES AND WEAR. 5. INSPECT BRAKE SYSTEM. Visually inspect brake lines and hoses for proper hook-up, binding, leaks, cracks, chafing, etc. Inspect disc brake pads for wear and rotors for surface condition. Inspect other brake parts, including calipers, parking brake, etc. 6. CHECK ENGINE COOLANT AND WINDSHIELD WASHER FLUID LEVELS AND ADD FLUID AS NEEDED. 7. PERFORM ANY NEEDED ADDITIONAL SERVICES. Refer to Additional Required Services. 8. INSPECT SUSPENSION AND STEERING COMPONENTS. Visually inspect front and rear suspension and steering system for damaged, loose or missing parts or signs of wear. Inspect power steering lines and hoses for proper hook-up, binding, leaks, cracks, chafing, etc. 9. INSPECT ENGINE COOLING SYSTEM. Visually inspect hoses and have them replaced if they are cracked, swollen or deteriorated. Inspect all pipes, fittings and clamps. To help ensure proper operation, a pressure test of the cooling system and pressure cap and cleaning the outside of the radiator and air conditioning condenser is recommended at least once a year. 10. INSPECT WIPER BLADES. Visually inspect wiper blades for wear or cracking. Replace blade inserts that appear worn or damaged or that streak or miss areas of the windshield. 11. INSPECT RESTRAINT SYSTEM COMPONENTS. Make sure the safety belt reminder light and all your belts, buckles, latch plates, retractors and anchorages are working properly. Look for any other loose or damaged safety belt system parts. If you see anything that might keep a safety belt system from doing its job, have it repaired. Have any torn or frayed safety belts replaced. Also look for any opened or broken air bag coverings, and have them repaired or replaced. (The air bag system does not need regular maintenance.) 12. LUBRICATE BODY COMPONENTS. Lubricate all key lock cylinders, hood latch assembly, secondary latch, pivots, spring anchor, release pawl, rear compartment hinges, outer liftgate handle pivot points, rear door detent link, roller mechanism, liftgate handle pivot points, latch bolt, fuel door hinge, cargo door hinge, locks and folding seat hardware. More frequent lubrication may be required when exposed to a corrosive environment. Applying silicone grease on weather-strips with a clean cloth will make them last longer, seal better and not stick or squeak. 13. REPLACE PASSENGER COMPARTMENT AIR FILTER. If you drive regularly under dusty conditions, the filter may require replacement more often.

Hey JC, Im Planing on buying new tires for my 2000 ford ranger xlt 3.0 and thinking I might as well get rid of these stock rims while im add it. What kind of beef A/T tires can I get for a 15" rim thats...


sorry you cannot change the wheels without authorisation from the factory,you will need a certificate from fords stating that this vehicle can be used with this size wheel without affecting the castor/camber or king pin inclination.Then you will need a certificate from the wheel manufacturers stating the technical specifications and speed rating of the rims and what the recomended speed rating of the tyres thats permitted to be fitted.then you will need a technical report from a certified member of the ilustrious college of technical engineers and with all these papers you can then go the vehicle inspection station who will re inspect the vehicle for another road worthyness certificate and change the vehicles technical specification paper.but this is spain
