  1. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I'm sure there are tons of these threads but I haven't been able to find them with search, if someone can point me in the right direction that'd be great. I want to fix the plastic ring around the speaker in my passenger door panel, Anybody know where I can get a new housing with an intact ring?
  2. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Here is the video, hope this helps someone doing the job next. I have done many repairs and this one was a nightmare. Mostly, as some members on here said, due to extreme lack of space. Basically, the whole repair is hinged on removing parts just to gain access to a couple bolts (terrible...
  3. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    :) Hello everyone, I'm new in the forum, just got a used 2012 BMW F30 328i about two months ago. I wanted to replace the Xenon bulbs for LEDs and got some from EBAY. But when I was installing them, I pushed too hard the new bulb and the housing in the left headlight came loose :yikes: :dunno: ...
  4. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hello guys, I bought an oil filter housing from an M50 engine (the one with the metal cap as opposed the plastic one that comes as standard). I wish to swap the one with the plastic cap for the m50 one. Only problem is, i have no clue how to mount the power steering reservoir. The original...

    Was replacing OFH after doing gasket replacement. One hole turned out to be stripped. It is the upper bolt hole with the metal guide for the housing. Was going to do a helicoil but turns out the guide sleeve ID will not permit the driil and subsequently the tap for helicoil to pass through so I...
  6. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I am changing my oil and noticed these ridges(?) at the top and bottom of the oil filter housing. Just not sure they are suppose to be there. I purchased the car about six months ago and did an oil service and did notice the ridges at that time but was, as usual, in too big a hurry to worry...
  7. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    This is my first post. Thanks in advance for reading. The short of the story is I picked up a z3 that needs a lot of work. I'm trying to get it up to CA smog regulations, and the next thing on my list is to put in an air filter housing of some kind. That's right. The previous owner attached...
  8. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hey everybody! So psyched right now. I just bought my first BMW and now I know why people are such fanatics about their Bimmers! Needs some new front sway bar bushings and front tires. No problem. Unfortunately, it also needs a new engine cover and cabin air filter housing. Both were taken...

  10. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Can't seem to find this anywhere ? I snapped off one of the bolts on my t-stat housing off. My ? is, is the t-stats housing threaded??? The other bolts feel like they're going to break too, so I was thinking of letting them break so I can pull the housing off, the use some vicegrips grips to...
  11. 7 Series & 8 Series
    :dunno: I rotated my tires yesterday and now the back of my brake housing is scrubbing the inside of the rim. It is the front / passenger side tire on a 98 740iL. I took the tire off, took the brake assembly apart, and took the rotor off, put it all back together to make sure nothing was loose...
  12. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi, My 2000 323i E46 is in the shop and I'm being told that I have a coolant leak from the thermostat housing. The service shop is recommending that I replace the following to have this fixed: 1. Thermostat with housing - $432 (incl labor) 2. Coolant expansion tank and upper/lower radiator...
