  1. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    I’m looking to remove my dash cluster to swap the lcd. Seems straight forward, but I figured I watch a YouTube video. Some guy out of the UK is saying the steering wheel needs to be pulled before the cluster. Never heard this in my life. What the reality? thanks

    SPOILER ALERT: As I ended up doing it myself, this thread morphs into a DIY for the oil pan gasket job. - July'22 UPDATE: X5 E70 LCI N55 Oil Pan Gasket DIY Attached is the DIY. SAFE HARBOR STATEMENT: I am a guy on the internet, not a BMW tech. This is not an official BMW procedure and you...
  3. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I wasn't really sure how to search this to see if what I'm looking for already exists. If it does, I'll delete this post. Being new to BMW's and starting this journey with an older one (2006 x3 e83 m54 114K miles), I anticipate that I will be doing a lot of general maintenance that I'm not sure...

    Hi guys, So my angel eyes went out on the driver's side headlight, I ordered a new bulb and went to go replace it, but after popping the hood and the little headlight cover piece my headlight assembly does not look anything like what I have seen online. I don't see a bulb anywhere, I don't see...

  9. Do-It-Yourself H.Q.
    If you have the diamond shaped key and it’s not unlocking or locking the car you may need to replace the internal battery. It normally charges as you drive the car but if the battery is worn out it won’t hold the charge as well. Here is a video showing you how to complete.

  14. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Hello! I have a 2004 745li with a slow leak in the sun roof cassette (quoted at 6k to fix 🤢). I'm wondering if it's at all viable for me to take off the headliner and apply some type of sealant around the edges of the sunroof? If it is could anyone provide some tips on what kind to use and what...
  15. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello all, I'm somewhat new to these forums and I'm having some problems with my e60 not starting. One morning I hopped in, turned the key, and the car wouldn't start. I have replaced the battery because the other one was dead. I have a diamond key and when I put it in and turn, cluster lights...
  16. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Fix at bottom: I took the face and screen from an LCI e92 gauge cluster, and put it on mine (2006 e90). The new screen is slightly higher resolution, which is nice, however after popping the needles back on, the speed indicator is loose. It wasn't in contact with the worm gear anymore (see...
  17. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I recovered this piece from the wreckage after I ran over a rock that completely obliterated my oil pan. Long story short, after a DIY oil pan replacement on my 325i, a bunch of codes popped up. 6 to be exact(p1726, p1056, p1030, p1554, p0344, and p1554) After firing the engine up for the first...
  18. E46 M3 (2001-2006)
    So - after barely avoiding a physical altercation in the bank parking lot for negotiating the price (I'm not a confrontational person) and paying a substantial amount for a local shop to do a "pre-purchase inspection" (the report consisted of 28 pictures), I've rather impulsively bought an E46...

    Anyone know where the fourth wire in the back (circled and underlined) should live? I'm good on the first three, but I don't remember where the heck the fourth one came from.
