  • Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Very helpful book I have a diesel e46 BMW which this product does not cover however I knew this before purchasing. Everything else in the e46 is the same and this book helped me to change the anti roll bar bushes, front shocks/struts and adjust the handbrake. The other handy feature of this book is the MOT section which allows you to carry out a pre-MOT of your vehicle without the added cost of garage fees. 06 July 2013

Some of the parts we sell here at Halfords have been reconditioned. These will carry a Refundable Deposit or an extra surcharge amount. When you add one of these reconditioned items to your basket, we'll add this extra cost automatically.

Once you've sent us your old item we'll check it over, and then refund you the full surcharge as long as everything is ok.

Before you return your old unit please make sure it's in re-serviceable condition. So if you're returning caliper casings, you'll need to double check they aren't badly damaged or broken. If the part you've sent is found to be unserviceable, we reserve the right not to refund the surcharge.

Please note that if you're returning your old unit to our National Returns Centre then this will be at your own expense.
