  1. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hi guys. We just replaced our front rotors/pads after brake light coming on. We were having horrible shaking before, which went away with rotor replacement. Problem now is that as soon as we tested brakes, we're getting an awful low pitched grinding nose when driving sometimes and also when...
  2. E70 X5 M and E71 X6 M (2010 - 2015)
    I have a grinding sound very like a dust shield scraping a disc on the front right (OSF). Sound is most noticeable when the car is moving slowly, varies from noticeable to loud and gets louder when turning left. So right wheel noise on left turns. (Hang on don't get excited!) At speed it is...
  3. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I've looked around on this forum and found a thread on this issue before but it has become more frequent and is starting to be a concern to me. I was hoping to get some opinions on it before I take it into the dealer. Car: 2007 BMW 328i Auto with cold weather package. The issue I'm currently...

    Hi Guys, Long time lurker first time poster. Over the last 3 days I have noticed my car making grinding noises when at low RPM. It sounds really bad to my ear withand wanted to know a bit from other members before I take it to the shop...
  5. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi all, So I was taking my e92 320d M Sport for a nice spirited Sunday drive down some country lanes earlier today when I noticed a clinking/whining/grinding noise in 6th gear, I was doing around 60 at the time and it seemed to be speed dependant as to how loud it got. Once I realised that the...
  6. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hi all, So over the summer I have been putting some work into my 97 BMW 328is, which has around 175,000 miles as of now. The previous owner really didn't take care of it, so there is a lot to sort out. So far I have replaced the front suspension (control arms, FCABS, rack, tie rods, endlinks...
  7. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello fellow bimmer enthusiasts Long story short with as much detail as possible; I went to an approved shop to get my throttle body replaced and had them do an inspection which they did free of charge actually :thumbup: Upon the several problems found, one thing which I want more...
  8. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello everyone, i just got me a 2004 E53 4.8is. This is my first V8 car.. i had several BMWs in last 10 years (E30, E34, E39) and E53 was the next logical step hehe. The car is unbelievably powerful, nice interior, nice color, not so thirsty (if you are careful from time to time) BUT i have two...
  9. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Can somebody please let me know what this could be. Getting a really bad grinding noise when I'm turning the wheel. More audible when in park. There are a lot of post on grinding noises. So I figure I would add a link for a vid. http://youtu.be/do6cxJrFJrk Let me know if u have any...
  10. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello, I bought a used '07 530i about 4 months ago, with 110000kms on it. It now has 115000kms. This is my first BMW, and I love it except for this noise issue. There is an annoying & embarrassing creaking/groaning/rubbing noise from the front end when I put the car in gear (D or R) and...
  11. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi All, I've practically read all threads on a "grinding/rubbing" noise when car is cold and steering is turned left or right at low speeds/parked. Goes away when driven for 10 minutes. Noise only pops up on cold mornings ( < 50F outside). Even took it to the dealer (its a 09 535i CPO)...
  12. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    We've had the 2010 X5 for about a month now. I noticed there's a grinding/rubbing/brake dragging noise from the vehicle when driving above 15 mph. It's really noticeable when driving on a quiet street with the windows down. I would say it sounds mostly like brake dragging but we just got the...
  13. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I'm going crazy chasing after this noise. Started a few months ago out of the blue. Noise didnt build up it just started the first day and still sounds the same. Sounds like a grinding or whirring noise from the middle or rear of the car. Sound starts around 15mph and can hear it until about...
  14. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Been browsing for a little while, seeing a few problems with Aircon on E46s. Mine is a 1999 323i, everything is in really good condition, 1 lady owner from new and only done 120,000 Kilometers. Full BMW service history always brought in on or before the service interval. So couldn't turn it...
  15. E90/E92/E93 M3 (2008 - 2014)
    I’ve got the rear diff grind in my M3 and have for about the last year. I’ve had the service with the additive but the sound has never really gone away. I’m about 6 months away from lease end and trying to decide what I want to do. In a lot of ways I am in love with this car, but the diff grind...
  16. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi folks, I'm need of some of the collective knowledge here. I have a 2003 540i with 6 Speed manual. I recently (Tue/Wed) took my car to my regular mechanic for some fluid changes. I was getting my front brakes done so I also got my mech to put in new Brake Fluid (ATE Super Blue), new tranny...
  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey guys, n00b member here... Just wrapped up installing a factory rep-set(LUK) clutch in my new 97 e39 6-cylinder. Well, new to me anyways. The car has 260k on the odo, so it is NOT new. But this is my first BMW and I love the car. Silver on Black, 5-speed, drove 880 miles to buy it out of...
  18. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    G'day all, This morning before driving, I think I may have had an epiphany! Since I bought my E36, the steering wheel had an annoying squeak every inch you turned it. My father told me it was because it hasn't been driven in a while...and me not knowing about cars back then, I believed him...
  19. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hi guys/gals, I'm new to this forum but would really appreciate any thoughts regarding a new problem with my E36 (328is). The other day, my car began making a whining or grinding sound when I restarted it after driving it a few miles. The sound is very similar to this Youtube clip: My sound...
  20. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi, I got stuck in snow on Friday finally got it free'd after an hour and a half, some shovels and 3 guys helping to rock it free, since then my "what appears" sounds like from the diff... is making a grinding noise like gears grinding or skipping. The wheels and noise work fine when driving...
