What gets replaced or checked on each service
« on: March 06, 2018, 09:19:22 pm »
Hi All

I am looking at a 40 000km service shortly and want to 'know what is replace ,checked, etc on this service. I prefer to self service but like a guideline as what to replace. Ie when does the alternator belt get replaced if at all. And when does the clutch fluid get replaced etc etc.

I am pretty sure I got a schedule listing this off this forum but had to replace a hard drive so all that data waist.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

On the LC it is:

-  All fluids, including clutch and brake fluid and shaft oil.
-  Spark plugs
-  Engine Oil and filter
-  Air filter element

Shaft oil ???

Need to check the cam timing.  They tend to go out as the sprocket can turn on the end of the cam shaft.

It may have another, better known name.  Whatever fluid is inserted into the rear end of the shaft, there by the final drive.  If you have the correct name, please feel free to help.

Ah!  Final Drive oil.  The shaft runs completely dry, just like a rear wheel drive car's drive shaft.

Bmw was telling me this week that this service on a LC cost between R4-5k and on an AC model R5-6k due to the alternator belt that is being replaced as well

 :o

Alternator belt for the AC doesn't cost R1k and takes literally 10 min to fit.

It is the right thing to do to support your local BMW dealer. My problem is, it is becoming too expensive.

I do realise they have overhead. Try book a service when you want. You can't they are too busy.

A lot of us are doing our own thing once the warrantee has expired. If the price to service was right, we would be a lot more supportive.

Just my own opinion.
