bolts

  1. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    I can't seem to get to the two blots on the bottom of the intake that holds it down around the throttle body area.:cry::cry: I finally got the first one out and I can see the second one but it's not cooperating. Are the two T bolts the same size? :mad::mad:
  2. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Got my X3 back from the shop... both left cylinder head cover bolts are completely sheared off with the caps missing. I do have the nuts (found those hanging out near a headlight *eyeroll*) The head cover is basically just sitting atop fixed with heat tape. Any ideas on how to fix?

    Hi, I am a new member. I have tried to find the bolts that are used for connecting the 4 piston brembos together for the f30 series. I have been looking for a source but have come up short on finding even a matching bolt. I would like to know the specs if anyone has them, so I can order them...
  4. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I'm hoping someone with some wheel knowledge can chime in and help me out, as I'm somewhat confused and cannot find the answer I'm looking for. Basically I found a set of aftermarket rims that were on a Range Rover, and I'm trying to figure out if they will fit my 745 or not. I know that both...

    Hello all, anybody know the type/length/size for the long? bolt that attaches the fan shroud to the radiator and keeps it in place? Thanks in advance.

    Doing a head gasket job and while taking the exhaust manifold most of the studs came out with the nuts. Everybody says to get new ones when putting it back together using the double nut technique. Would it be okay just to use regular bolts instead of studs? Or does it require studs with nuts...
  7. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello, So I just replaced a CV axle on my 2007 e90. I checked all the bushings and bearing for wear and everything looks fine. The axle was making a loud knocking sound when taking turns and since replacement, this has been resolved. However I was still feeling a bit of a rattle or it felt...

    Hey guys, haven't been on the forum in a while. Hope everyone is doing great and that you all have less problems than when I first joined the community. :) I, however, have seemed to accumulate more issues with my poor car. Like I've said in previous posts, she's a 1996 BMW Z3 and I have been...

    Doing a cooling overhaul, got to the water pump and discovered two holes to the left it. The bottom one was seeping white and orange gunk. My question simply is what are they? Should they have something in them? Posted a picture to help. Cheers

    So Yesterday I was doing a cooling system overhaul (Aluminum rad, water pump, thermostat..) I got to the water pump and discovered two holes to the left of it. In the bottom hole there was some white gunk and orange liquid seeping out of it. My question simply is what the hell are they? Should...

    I recently bought an 02 325I and upon replacing the transmission I found some one had replaced the 3 torque converter bolts with a cheap grade 3 bolt. SO I'm trying to find the pitch of thread and length of the OEM. I'm thinking its a 10mmX1.50 for the pitch by 2in in length?? Thanks for all the...

  15. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Good day, Today I lifted the passenger seat in order to access fuse #107 and when I tried screwing the seat back in place I noticed the threads in which we screw the bolts into were damaged. More specifically, 2 out 4 are damaged. The front/right one has even come loose. Which means that I...

    Hi, I'm replacing my head gasket on my 1998 318i 4cyl and I just wanted to know if the head bolts will be passing through any coolant jackets/resovoirs? Any help on this is appreciated. Also, what do you recommend is the best OE head bolts on the market for this BMW. Thank you! Brian

    I recently had the radiator, thermostat and belt replaced on my recently purchased 325i. Only 41K at the time of repair and it was recommended that we replace the top belt since it was a little frayed. Made sense since at the time since all of the shrouds and radiator was pulled. Easy to...
