drain

  1. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    So, I recently moved to CA from Chicago. To provide a data point for future comparison, my 2002 530i averaged 29.7 mpg. I've been extra cautious when on the road and most of the times cruised around 70. Any people have similar data points on long trips like this? One issue happened during the...

    My ride is ready to start. I found out from the previous owner that the FULL tank of gas has been there for about 1 year:eek:! I unhooked the fuel line right before the fuel filter on the left of the car. the only way I was able to drain the fuel is to turn the key on and off over and over. The...
  3. Do-It-Yourself H.Q.
    Here is my DIY on repairing a leak in the cargo area due to disconnected drain hoses in a 2001 X5 4.4i. Since this is my 1st post, I should introduce myself. I've been lurking here (and some other BMW forums) since the beginning of the month, when I bought a Pearl Beige Metallic 2001 X5 4.4i...

    I've been having a problem with water somehow getting underneath my rear seats, and under my spare tire without any sign of it; until now. I took apart the rear C pillars (the ones on either side of the rear window) and poured water into the sunroof drains... found this... That is water...

    My daughter has a 200 528I. There is a parasitic drain in the electrical system somewhere. I have searched the site and I am leaning towards the FSU. I just want to make sure before I start replacing parts. One thing I have noticed is that I shut the climate control all the way off before I shut...

    I have a 2000 328ci. So after the car sits for an hour the battery is dead enough so that the cars ignition turns on but when you go to start there's just clicking under the hood. As the clicking happens, the driver side window starts to go down. Also the trunk will not open and the sun rood is...
  8. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    My BMW X3 (Automatic) has been driving fine for the past nearly-4 years with the exception of the harsh downshift when I'm coasting towards a red light. Last week, I brought the car in for a Inspection II and asked them to see if there were updates to fix that problem. They also mentioned that...
  9. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello people I need your advice. Since I got my car (3 months ago) and I always had the feeling that my battery was dying. Last month the clock started to reset every time I start the engine, so I took it to the dealership. There they told me that my battery was consumed by "normal wear and...
  10. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Hey guys, I have searched everywhere on the forum but didn't an answer. I have an 06 650 coupe, last night the car wouldn't turn on because the battery was drained. The battery is brand new, replaced less than 8 months ago. I jump tried to jump start with the 525 but it wouldn't budge. I...
  11. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I read a bunch of the other posts about battery issues, but mine seems a little different. I had my '97 328i for 8 yrs and never needed to replace the battery (Interstate brand). The other day on my way home, I turned on my rear defogger and noticed it wasn't working (although button was lit)...
  12. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I am having water on the passenger side floorboard only when the air conditioner is in use. It is likely the a/c drain that's plugged. Problem is I am trying to avoid remove the center console to get to the drain pipe. Some have claimed to be able to clean out the pipe from the bottom of the...
  13. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    2000 Z3 Roadster, 2.5: Ok, so first off, for the last several months the car's battery would drain/die if the car wasn't driven for 4 or 5 days. It seemed to be getting slightly worse and eventually didn't charge so I replaced it with a brand new battery (it was the original battery) when I...
