    The yellow ''parking brake fault'' light is upon me, and after checking the infamous plastic gear in the EMF(which was fine to my surprise), I noticed that left side parking cable has snapped. Since I was about to replace all rotors,pads and brake shoes, decided to get a parking cable as well...

    Hello. I need a bit of help. I have so many codes I needed to attach the report :))). Basically the problem is like this : The problems started like a week ago, the cold weather came and I needed to use the defrost function and all that which makes our life easier when it's cold outside.

    Dear fellow car detectives, Despite testing the edge of my patience, my bank balance, and my wife’s anxieties, I am ‘embracing’ a very long journey to get to the bottom of a very obscure problem. I will share it with you in detail. If anyone has experienced anything similar and can shed any...

    Hi all.. I've had a yellow engine check light come on in my car - along with the message 'Emissions Limit'... It comes on most times I start it HOWEVER it did disappear last weekend after fairly long run (150 miles), but came back the next day. I haven't had time to take it to my spannerman...
  5. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    The problem is the transfer of the fuel from the one side of the tank to the other. When the left side is drained, the car stops, while the right side has over 25 litres. The suction pump in the tank has been changed and the fuel sensors were checked, both working fine. The pump, which should...

  9. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    Hello, I have noticed my 730LD is shifting hard between 1-2 and then 2-3 when the engine is cold. When the engine warms up the gear shifting gets smoother. There are no lights on the dash or warnings at all. The car is a 2010 year and has done 63K miles. I have been told it could be the...

  12. 7 Series - G11 / G12 (2016 - current)
    Hi, guys, I had the new 7 Series for a spin in December. I admit I am impressed by the quality and technological progress of the model (and the brand). After I left the 730d xDrive I jumped in a 320d xDrive and I felt the poorest man on Earth. That is the moment when you realise how much high...
  13. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    Hi Guys, I'm new here and I'd be really glad if someone from here could help me. I've bought an E38 730d (1999 October), and received 2 keys with it. It's the newer style key (diamond key). However, both keys start the car, both of them are able to lock it (using the lock cylinder on the...

    Hi All, My mechanic tells me the auxiliary electric pusher fan has failed on my 2003 730d. New ones from the dealer cost an arm and a leg so I'm looking at 2nd hand ones. Does anyone know if the fan motors are interchangeable between the different e65 models and years? Mine has 3 wires so I'm...

    Hello fellas, I am proud owner of 730d '00 with M-Pakket and ShadowLine. It's a 193HP/430NM engine. However, I'd like to tune it a bit. My question is, where can I find good map for my engine, to give me best results? And should I consider changing anything on engine itself for getting more...
  16. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    These past couple of days I had a chance to really drive my 2004 730d . I have to say I'm very impressed by the car, my brother has a 2002 S - Class, and I have to say the 7 looks much better both inside and out, and also drives much better. I'm falling in love with the 7! I was driving it on...
