    Hi, Vehicle: BMW 530xi (e61) 2005 Problem: Left front CV drive shaft comes in two different lengths with the same part no. 31607570275. The one on my car should be 638,55mm (according to both BMW and ruler...) but all aftermarket seem to be 611mm and too short to fit- (i tried...) This is a bit...

    Hi folks, as the title states, I need to disconnect the drive shaft from the rear differential on a 2009 BMW 328i sedan, I'm towing the vehicle for like 160 miles and my mechanic advice is to disconnect the drive shaft from the rear differential to haul the car, my question is: will I need to...

    My car is a manual and every time I load up the drive train I get a metallic ping / ring sound from the rear. Start moving in first and it is a distinct bell sound followed by a few more smaller pings. Same thing when I lift of the throttle and unload the driveshaft. Shift to second...

    I am a broke college student who loves his 635csi. Earlier this year my automatic transmission began to go. My car has 235k miles, so it wasn't a huge surprise. I looked around for a used 4hp - 22 and I found one from an e34 to install. I hoped it was just going to be a matter of swapping over...

  7. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum and was wondering if I could get some input on an issue im having with my 2003 540i. A couple days ago I was driving home and heard a popping/rattling noise coming from my center console. I think it could be my flex disk/giubo or center support bearing but I'm...
  8. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    What's up everyone, I'm new to this site if you guys could reach out to me that would be great. OK so my car has the chills as I'm driving both front end thrust arm bushings were shot, so I went ahead and replaced both front upper control arms meyle brand that I bought from Bavarian auto sport...
  9. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I have a 1997 BMW Z3 1.9 Manual with a bad center bearing. I have been looking on the web hoping to find out what tools I need to replace my Center Bearing as well as the drive shaft coupler, guibo, or flex disk what ever you call it. Also does anyone know how to tell if the U joints are bad?
  10. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    My flex joint (rubber portion) is getting bad, and I found a replacement but I am wondering how difficult it is to replace that rubber Flex joint. Does the whole drive shaft have to come out? Or can I loosen the 6 bolts on the Flex Joint and the add the new part? Has anyone done this or know...
  11. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    High speed shimmy in the front end mystery: Before I describe the problem I know that my front end lower control arm 'eyeball' joints are bad and that this may be my problem. But, I think its more than that. My 2003 325xi floats around at highway speeds which will be fixed with new lower...
  12. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    I have an 86 325e and it's violently vibrating. I jacked it up to take a look at it. I looked in the manual I have and the part I need is the flex coupling. I called some local shops and they are calling the part two different names. Each name has a different part number Flex disc...
  13. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Good news! I finally found the problem I had been looking for! :thumbup: A few weeks ago I noticed a clanking noise coming from under my touring. It was hard to tell exactly where is was coming from because it resonated so badly. I also noticed some vibration at 30-40ish. I suspected everything...
  14. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I was experiencing vibrations when low speed turning and accelerating so I took the X3 to the shop. Mech said needed new driveshaft as Ujoints were playing. Wanted $1100 for the fix (750 for parts and the balance for labor). I took it home and promptly ordered rebuilt shaft for $350 plus $60...
  15. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Turned the car in to have a clicking sound looked at. Only had it while starting to move in first and reverse. I was thinking U-Joint, and I was right. Dealership said it was the U-Joint making the noise, but that I'd have to replace the entire driveshaft:dunno:. I've found a U-Joint for $85...

    first post to the forum after owning now a total of 3 bimmers....Okay, so here I am on my 3rd bmw. Finally took the plunge to the SUV after much deliberation and feel like I am drowning. After reading nearly all related threads, I am so confused and I am ready to turn it back in after buying...
