  2. Steering wheel clunk when straight.

    E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I just replaced my front struts, and now there is a fairly violent clunk in the steering wheel when going straight. The clunk disappears when I turn the wheel slightly left or right, and isn't there when going around corners. It's only when going straight (basically between 11 and 1 on the...

  6. *EDIT* problem diagnosed not solved, 540i dif swap causes cruise control issues

    E39 (1997 - 2003)
    EDITED original post below. It seems at this point that the issue has been pinpointed to the differential which was replaced. Although the shop says they ordered a manual transmission dif, and their paperwork confirms this, there is an automatic dif (3.15 final gear) instead of a manual dif...
  7. 2002 540i driver seat height adjustment issue(?)

    E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Before I dig in and remove the seat and fix/replace the height adjustment motor, I wanted to ask if there were thoughts on my issue. The driver seat moves forward and back, tilts fine but the height adjustment only works when there is no weight on it. I'm not a big guy (165 lbs) so I don't...

    Hey guys! I have an E39 525i automatic, made in 2001. I was checking something in the hidden menu in the instrument cluster. I was checking the voltage value. Then I exited the hidden menu. Since then my speedometer and L/100 km consumption gauges are not working. If I go back to the hidden...
  10. 4 Misfires

    E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Okay so, last time I posted on here requesting help, I had just bought a non-running 03' 530i for an extremely cheap $350. The only issue that stopped it from running was the fuse box under the passenger seat. It was completely fried, lots of water had gotten down there. After I fixed that, she...

    Hey fellas, 2002 530i. My favorite daily, maybe ever. Little gremlins here and there, usually chocked up to the car being charming. Until these wipers. A few months ago, they started running slower than normal. Then one day, they wouldn't work at all. I'm aware of all the usual problems...
