    Hi guys, newbie here! I am having an issue with my wife’s BMW. It’s a 2008 328xi 3.0 litre inline 6 engine with 219,000km I guess I’ll start from the top. Last summer the car kept throwing an oxygen sensor code (can’t remember which one) I reset the light and it would stay off for a long time...

    Hello. A few days ago the engine light appeared and I checked the bimmerlink application and the following errors appeared. I erased the error and continued to ride the car. The car is moving normally and pulls well. Today when I was starting the car I noticed that the coldstart did not...

  5. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Good afternoon All and a very Happy New Year! I have a 2004 X5 E53 and for whatever reason, my front pass door will not close all the way. It will, however, lock with both the keyfob and manually lock. I thought the actuator might have been on it's last leg so I replaced that myself two days...

    I am new to this forum so please bear with my wordiness. I know these must have come up before but I have not seem the subject on the 4WD sticking. I would like to know where I should go from here. Which avenue to pursue. I hate going down multiple roads at the same time. I have a 2008 X3...

    Hey everyone. I have a 2008 X5 4.8i E70. When heat is turned on it will blow hot on the passenger side and cold on the driver's side face and foot vents. This remains constant. The cold air coming from the driver's side seems to be whatever the outside temperature is (not confirmed). A/C...

    Thank you for your time!!! My rear passenger door is halfway opening at random times a few times now. It's where my 4yr old sits so I need a fix asap. I have the child lock on so the inside handle still cannot operate/open the door but the outside one works fine. The problem triggers the...
  10. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    So I've had the dreaded 4x4, ABS and Handbrake Lights on for a while. At first, we replaced the gear which looked worn but still did not solve the problem. The mechanic then recommended changing the Transfer Case Actuator, after replacing it the car did begin to drive better (no...

    I just installed a door lock actuator on my 2011 328i Xdrive. It works fine electronically but will not open with the metal key. The key turns about 90 degrees in both directions with what feels like proper spring resistance but the actuator does not unlock or lock the door. Any ideas?
  12. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi Everyone, I could really do with your help here. I've got a weird problem with my rear door on a 2005 X3. The door started not opening from the outside but did from the inside. I took the door pad off and tried to find anything obvious but couldn't see anything broken. Then I found that if I...

    Hello all, So, in the process of changing my valve cover gaskets, I removed my Valvetronic actuator motor without noting it's position. After researching what this thing does, it sounds like a made a huge mistake? Not sure on how to go about lining it back up correctly on the re installation...

    I'll try and makes this clear the first time, as it gets confusing: This year/model can only lock and un-lock the doors via the key (no remote) 1) Un-locking the drivers side door un-locks the drivers side door and the trunk but not the passenger door. At this point, the passenger door can only...

    Hi..and Happy New Year I replaced my front passenger door actuator but I think I did not fit the door lock rod correctly back into the actuator. To remove the actuator, I pulled on it and the rod snapped out. I hope that was the right thing to do. From the door lock cylinder, inside the door...
  19. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I'll start by saying I just rebuild the drivers door cylinder that went bad(5 min ago), and I was testing the key on the drivers door and every door operated as supposed to, except the rear pass. It will Lock/unlock from the interior button but not when I use the key on the outside of the car...
