  1. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello Have a 2006 E61 and it does not inflate the rear suspension properly. I have troubleshooted and removed the hoses out the compressor valve and can raise the right and left bellows separately fine with the garage compressor. The car is raised on each side. I know that the car's compressor...
  2. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hi everyone. I have a problem which has been driving me crazy for a couple of weeks now. I had the classic sinking back end on my F11, a few weeks ago. I replaced the airbag, (I replaced the right one 2 years ago and all was fine) and it pumped up fine. However, overnight, it seemed to sink and...

    I am having intermittent air conditioning issue on my BMW E60 525d 2006 sport. My air con was working perfectly until a few weeks ago, now it seems to be working intermittently, when it does decide to work it is ice cold and works okay, but it seems to be cutting out and not working all the...
  4. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I have a 2008 E60 550i, the a/c suddenly stopped working, I take a look at the ac compressor and its missing the belt, I go to turn the pulley and it wont move at all, after doing some research I figured it could be the ac compressor pulley, I have a local junk yard near me with a 2007 545i N62...
  5. 5 Series
    I have a 2008 535i, 128k miles, with dead AC (blowing hot air). The mechanic said there's a leak in the release valve, but is suggesting I replace the entire compressor along with it for 3x the cost. The problem is he can't tell weather or not the compressor needs to be replaced without 3+ hours...
  6. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi everyone! I have a 320d pre-facelift with M47 engine and my A/C Compressor making a strange whining noise when the clutch is engaged. This whining noise changes its pitch with the engine RPM and when it happens I get poor cooling too. I have changed everything except for the A/C compressor...
  7. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hello all, I'm new to the forum, but have really appreciated all of the good advice I've gleaned over the years from the users here. Here is my situation. For a while I had leaking air struts. Each time I started the X5, it would pump them up, and I thought this was normal. One day my son and I...
  8. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    i want to remove my broken ac compressor from my x3 2.5i 2004. does anyone know how i can do it? i mean there is no space to remove it only by removing the box with the water for the front window. do i have to remove the radiator and hoses to do it from the top? or i have to remove it from the...
  9. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Since it's gotten warmer, I've recently noticed that I'm not hearing the auxiliary fan kick on.. especially at stop lights when the car isn't moving and it's like 90° outside. I tested the fan in ISTA and didn't have any problem getting it to turn on. One thing I did find was that the DME could...
  10. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    What specific make/model air compressor do you use with your F25 X3? I'm particularly concerned that a 12 volt compressor could blow fuses and therefore be worthless in an emergency. Also, which power outlet do you use with the compressor - the front cigarette lighter or the center console? Is...
  11. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I apologize ahead of time if this has been covered already, but I haven't had any luck locating it if it has. I have. 2002 745i Been having some a/c issues Had a freon leak which has been fixed Also replaced both the suction line and discharge lines. My a/c has been working amazingly untill...
  12. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Can anyone tell/show me where the relay for the compressor is located on the '06 X3 please? I'm guessing it's one of the relays in the Engine bay next to the firewall but I'm not sure which one..
  13. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi all, My AC compressor on my 07 530xi is making some funky noises, and I think the pulley bearing is toast. Instead of replacing the entire compressor, I'm going to order just the pulley assembly and try to get that on. Unfortunately, I've only found the part available in Europe... for the...
  14. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello Bimmerfest. First let me start by saying this is my very first post to the forum after stalking it over the last couple of years. I did search for my issue and found similar inquiries, but didn't find exactly what's going on with my vehicle so thought I'd start a new thread. Second I...
  15. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hello! I am new to the forum, looking for some answers. I have a 2008 BMW X5 E70 4.8i. I noticed my air bags not inflating. Purchased new bags, installed, nothing. Ordered a new compressor hoping that will fix the issue. I'm not entirely sure if my compressor was being over worked for the last...
  16. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So I have a 2008 328i. Last week when driving, a hose that went to the radiator blew out and steam shot out. I had the car towed to the shop. They said the hose broke and that I needed to have the belt replaced. So I paid them to do that and "pressure test" i to verify the hose just broke...
  17. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi everyone My E90 begines whining right after i start the engine and it keep whinging all the time even when its in Park. it sounds like metal on metal. Its more noticeable at 1500 RPM (specially in cabin) and by ascending rpm it goes to fade or less noticeable at least. (because of higher...
  18. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    OK, so its 100 degrees everyday around here in North Texas. Not a good time for a/c problems, especially when you have a black on black 760! My a/c works great on as long as the car is moving, but quits upon slowing down or stopping in traffic. Of course the first thing is to make certain is...
  19. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I have a 2006 325ci and have been experiencing some AC issues. Recently my AC has stopped blowing COLD air and I have begun the process and trouble shooting the issue. I had a mechanic look at the AC briefly last time I took the car in, but did not want an entire diagnostic due to the hefty...
  20. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    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...
