    All, first time posting in roughly 8 years (it's good to be back). This post is more to vent if anything and to see if anyone else has had this problem / bad luck. I recently replaced the a/c compressor and drier on my 1998 M3 sedan. Previously, when the A/C was turned on (compressor clutch...

    My A/C compressor apparently quit working and a replacement so far is about $750.00 for the part does anybody know how I can beat this cost? Are the A/C compressors compatible with other models?

    Ok, so I was gone for a bit and my wife complained the A/C stopped working. When I got back, I popped open the bonnet to find the A/C Clutch plate sitting on top on the undercarriage protector. I saw some other plastic or maybe metal, have yet to pull off the protector to see what all is sitting...

    Hi everyone! So I have already looked through all the results of the search function for my problem but I've found nothing that matches up so far. I'll try to be descriptive as I can. I bought a 1996 318i 4 door with a 5 speed back in February 2015 and couldn't have been happier! The previous...

  11. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    A series of unfortunate problems is plaguing me with my 2005 x3 and has really made me debate getting rid of the car. I'm hoping to get advice on next steps: The A/C compressor failed (discharging coolant) and a few weeks later the pulley seized up on the compressor and the belt broke. When...
  12. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    My 2000 328i is still misfiring, engine starts shaking, causing the check engine light to come on everytime I run the a/c compressor. The same day I replaced the compressor it's still made a horrible loud noise, again causing the engine to misfire and shake. I pull over turn the car off and back...
