I was cleaning the engine bay and noticed an axle shaft or output shaft or something has a leak around the boot cover. I’m just having problems identifying the real name of...

    I have a 1986 325es and am looking for an axle back exhaust system for it that won't break the bank, but with good quality. Any suggestions on brands or anything?

    If anyone by any chance happens to know the answer to this question.... if i purchase a drivetrain from an older model 5 series, and just remove the cv joint, would that cv join be able to fit in my f10?

    Last week was in a low speed collisions i wasnt moving and the other person hit me going no more than 35(mph), but im sure it was more like 25. My wheels were also turned 1/2-3/4 to the left when she hit me with the center of the front over her car. The center of the impact was at the front...

    I have a 2006 530xi and need to replace the front right axle. Is that axle shorter or longer than the front left axle?? or are they exactly the same in length? Just wondering before I buy anything.

    Hey guys and gals! I'm looking down the barrel of the purchase of a used manual transmission plus most associated parts (no pilot bearing, shift knob/boot), including the driveshaft and rear differential, to do a manual swap on my 530i. The parts are from a "totaled" (rear quarter/trunk damage...

    My sister owned this car previously, it is a 2003 BMW 330Xi, and she got it stuck in mud, the car was later given to me. There has been this weird vibration/rubbing/moaning noise ever since the mud incident, and I've gone through leaps and bounds to try and get it fixed, but to no avail, so I'll...

    Good evening all, So I've brought this to my BMW dealership here in CT. They couldn't find an issue. I've narrowed it down to this... Sometimes when starting in first gear a bit harder then normal, I hear a *ting* from what sounds like the front passenger side. It sounded like a coin hitting a...

    I've screwed myself by getting stuck at this portion of the rear wheel bearing replacement. Driver's side I have done, but now I'm tackling the other, and I can't pound the half-axle out as before. I've drowned it in PB blaster, dropped the diff side... I'm a failure. :bawling: Any chance...

    A couple weeks ago I took a trip on the 6er from Tempe, AZ. to the bay area stopping at three different beaches. On my way back home, just 40 miles before getting home, I noticed an intermediate clacking noise. I stopped my a gas station and gave it a visual inspection, and thought it was just...

    Ello BMW enthusiasts! Recently I was T-Boned on the high-way and my beloved BMW 325is 1994 has been grievously wounded. I'd greatly appreciate any advice or help I can get from the forums, as I'm not the most mechanically gifted individual when it comes to cars. Could I get a diagnosis on...

    Hello All, I purchased my 1997 740i after waiting for eight years. My desperation went up to the roof in the end and in my efforts of purchasing the first beauty i laid my eyes on, i didn't paid much attention to the mechanical side of the car. It's only been two months and i've spent quite a...

    I have 2001 330xi. 148,000 miles. There is a loud clicking noise in the front right tire area only when I go in reverse. Clicking noise is there whether I am reversing straight or turning the steering wheel. In addition, on sharp turns, there is a clicking noise, only softer, when I turn...

    i recently changed my passenger rear wheel bearing because it started making a pretty mean growling noise and changing it was A PAIN! then when installing an LSD, im pretty sure i heard beads dropping. I didnt pay much attention to that thinking it was just dirt falling off the wheel well. then...
