  1. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Okay so when I wake up in the morning I noticed that when I turn my steering wheel it makes like a groaning noise pretty loud. And when I accelerate (only sometimes) it sounds like a supercharger whine in the cabin. Now the car fully warms up to operating temperature but white smoke comes out a...

    HI there! I have taken the engine apart to seal it properly and also do the Timing chain guides. So I cleaned it properly inside and blown out the oil galleries and now I want to put everything back together. Now I am wondering.....usually I would leave the ignition coils disconnected and crank...

    Hello all, (2001 740i 4.4l) I got in a front end collision last Saturday and fixed the car (photos attached) ever since the accident (even when trying to get off of flat bed) I have been having this issue. The car will turn over just fine and start, will rev to about 1200 rpm and immediately...

    Hi, So I just finished replacing the locking mechanism on the driver door on my 2002 E53 3.0L Diesel. The battery has been unplugged for about a week while doing this. Now the central locking system is not working. I can lock the car with the key in the door and open the boot using the button...
  7. Do-It-Yourself H.Q.
    My 2001 e53 clicks one time when I try and start it and that’s all. When I try and jump it it will start but not stay running. I’m just not sure exactly what to check, and or why this would be happening. My battery is good, I don’t think it’s my alternator. I’m thinking it’s my starter or my...

    I have a 2002 E53 3.0i and I was driving and sudden my lower door speakers quit working. I’m only getting sound from my tweeters in the dash and the small speakers in the doors (upper).

    Hi all! My '06 E53 3.0 has 220,000 miles on it - I've owned it for the past 20,000 miles. Prior to me, it had a cooling system overhaul, some suspension work, and other typical E53 repairs including a rebuilt auto transmission just before I bought the car (still under warranty), tons of...

    Hi Usually I'd search back through the forums, but as the tech on these moves forward so quickly I thought it best to ask people's current views and advice. Any particular recommendations of Android Heads, i.e. ones that come with the right fittings and decent instructions for an easy upgrade...

    We are in the midst of a DIY motor mount replacement project and cannot figure out how in the heck you can get to the forward E12 bolt on the driver side. We were able to replace the right passenger mount with a lot of effort. We were also able to remove the top nut and rear most E12 on the...
