  1. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    2005 545i. I was changing my oil and filter today and noticed at the bottom of the oil catch pan a LOT of metal at the bottom. Big flakes and all seem to be iron based (used a magnet to test). No noise coming from engine - no knocks or anything whatsoever. Engine has about 45k miles on it. I...

    Okay, so replacing the guibo and carrier bearing, and ran into a blockage. My cv joint at the back end of the driveshaft was garbage. Missing 2 of the 6 ball bearings. Well the front half of the cv shaft came out and the back half is stuck. Any ways to get it out?
  3. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    I am looking to buy a 2004 2.5i Z4 with 39K miles (for $10500). One owner. That said the while the car is a creampuff, I have read about the steering column issue some complain about. I have a close friend who was a German auto mechanic for many years and is now on his 2nd Z4 (he is always on...
  4. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I just had both of my rear wheel bearings replaced at a local shop, not a BMW dealer. Now the ABS, BRAKE, and one more warning light are on. I can't use cruise control. I believe that a sensor was damaged or not hooked back up properly? Does anyone have any ideas for an easy fix for this? Is...
  5. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    So, a little background. My 2006 car has 59000 miles. All oil changes have been made. The car has not seen track use, but I do autocross, plus I have a lead foot. The car is not abused, but I do drive it as an M should be. Last week it started making a strange ticking noise (a bit louder than...

  7. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi. I recently bought my first e90 320D m-sport with 96k on the clock. Love the car but had a few issues with it already, including a broken central locking solenoid, and moisture getting into the remote locking sensor. However it now has two issues which are doing my head in. 1) When the clutch...

  9. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    i have to replace my drive shaft, do they usually come with the CV joint and ball bearings where to drive shaft meets the rear diff? or do i have to find the bearings separately? p.s. i am buying the drive shaft from LKQ auto parts, and it is supposed to be in great condition, good u joints and...
  10. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hello. First off, thank you for taking interest in my inquiry. I just recently "inherited" my BMW, and i am still learning little things about my car on a daily basis. I have taken 2 years of Auto-Mechanics in high school, so I have a general knowledge about automobiles. I own a 1996...
  11. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I've read through likely 90% of all posts in this forum looking for an answer here before I posted. While driving I have to wait until the rev's are down to ~2500 before shifting (up or down) (even with the clutch fully depressed) or the gears grind. Else I have to 'feel' my way into the gears...
