  1. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi everyone, I have a '07 E83 manual M-Sport with 275k. I'm getting a clunking noise/feeling when making tight turns. When I turn on gravel I can see marks that look like the front tires are jumping/skipping. This only has been happening for about 1 day and I stopped driving the car. I've...

  3. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I'm getting ready to replace my valve cover, it's done the whistling from high vacuum, leaking oil onto the exhaust manifold. I assume this is due to the failure of the built-in CCV valve. The car is a 2006 X3 3.0si (a little over 100,000 miles) with an N52K engine. This is part of a general...

    Hi everyone, I've either hit jackpot or learned a very expensive lesson. I'm about to pick up this 2008 X3 E83 2.0 Diesel from the auction site and wanted a heads up from you guys about the possible repairs needed. The condition report also noted that the engine was 'noisy'. I've read a few...

    Seems like the battery is dead, but I tried jumping it, and not even the lights on the dash come on. Any suggestions?
  7. X3 M, X5 M, X6 M, Z3 M & Z4 M
    Greetings, One rainy day my '05 X3 2.5i w/ manual transmission started making an aspirated sputtering sound in the 1st, 2nd, and sometimes 3rd gears between 1k and 3k rpm. It sounds like a much lower pitched car from the Jetson's cartoon.The sound is dependent on rpms but stays the same if the...

    I replaced my battery recently and the AutoZone employee said it may affect my ECU. Since the battery swap, my dash lights "BRAKE" and "4x4" have both been on - NO "ABS" light on, though. When I start the vehicle in the cold and try to make a hard slow turn (u-turn) I get a weird lurching...

    Hey there! I've been roaming these forums for the past few months after I bought my brother's 2009 E83 2.5Si, and just the other day I made some upgrades including installing a front+rear dashcam, reversing camera+monitor, sturdy phone holder, interior LED's, and.... a new Pioneer head unit with...

  12. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    My E83 had the passenger occupancy sensor replaced under recall two years ago, just prior to me purchasing the car. I'm now experiencing an issue where the seat belt beeper is sounding, indicating someone is in the passenger seat, even when the seat is completely empty (no items placed on the...

    2004 BMW x3 2.5i serial#WB24902 I took a job on that is typical enough but all the usual diagnosis has turned up nothing. I took this job on let's say a Pro-Bono mechanic job, trying to help a young homeless couple get on the road so they can get home to their mother 4 states away. I figured 1...

    I replaced my heater hoses. There are two clamps that hold the hoses to the body to keep the hoses away from the drive shaft and steering shaft. Any ideas on where to get these clamps, what they are, and if there is another way to hold the hoses in proper position that won't wear through the...

    I installed a Seicane head unit in my 2005 E83 and it works (except for the steering controls), but when I change modes on the original radio nothing happens. I researched this online and it seems that most installations have retained the factory radio controls and the audio is transmitted from...

    My X3 wouldn***8217;t start but the dash lights come on and the headlights work. Turn the key and nothing from the starter.

    Hi everyone, So I'm facing a small issue here. In order to solve the automatic transmission shifting issue in my '08 X3 E83 3.0si, I attempted to update the DME and EGS firmwares via a LAUNCH X431 PAD II (a diagnostic scanner we have at the shop where I work) since it seemed to have the option...
