  1. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    For awhile, I heard a sound coming from my F10 2015 BMW 528i, but I thought it was just all the normal weird sounds that bmw cars make, when the car is off. The sound started to get louder over time and became annoying. I've noticed my car starter seems to take a while to crank the engine. So...
  2. 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...
  3. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    I read somewhere that the Z4 family is noteworthy for it's quality and low repair record. This, of course, does not reflect the issue of the top motor. I wonder what everyone thinks about this. I have a 2.5 in Florida and a 3.0 in Maine. Both have been well maintained and have required only...
  4. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I took my car to the dealership after my blower motor stopped working and I found out about the recall. Dealership is saying my motor was unaffected, and that my wires are burnt to hell but somehow has no impact on the non-functional blower motor and they're refusing to replace it. What can I do...
  5. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    The following attachment is a document authored by Shipkiller. I used and saved it long ago before the Shipkiller website going down. It is one of the best write-ups I have seen to date on how to remove the convertible top from a Z4 and replace its Hydraulic motor with a new one. It also...
  6. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hey all, I have a 2005 X5 that I recently purchased. The dealer thought the window motor was bad in the passenger side rear door. So I replaced the motor and tried the switch and it will only work to close the window? So I plugged the old motor back in and it too will go close but not open...

  8. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi everyone, I have a 2008 328i Convertible and the retractable roof won't go down. When I open or close the doors I hear a motor noise inside the trunk. I have never heard that before. The roof won't go down. It will start the initial system, top unlatches, windows go down, and then that's...

    Team, (2009 BMW X5 35D.) Problem: The front blower for both heat and AC is not working at all. It slowly had gotten worse with blowing then quit altogether.

    My sunroof in my e39 will open just fine but when i try to close it, it stops about 3/4 and doesn't finish. I have to keep trying to close it and eventually it will close. Also, when i try to tilt it up, it wont go up. I can push it up but it will not stay up. Does anyone know what could be...

  13. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Car: 1985 BMW 325e Problem: Blower Motor Hello, I bought my e30 back in January and the owner gave me an uninstalled blower motor. I installed it and it worked fine except that anytime I put the speed above 1 or 2 the spinning fans scrape against something. I'm not sure if I'm not placing it...

  15. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi everyone, my first post on here. I'm after some advise. My rear wiper and wash have stopped working. I've cheeked the both fuses and are fine so going to check the motor itself. Does anyone know how easy it is to remove this?
  16. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi, I've been reading this forum whenever I had a problem and always found the solution, but the related threads don't seem to relate to my exact problem. What I've seen is that the most common issues are caused by the shade sliders or the water protector in the sunroof mechanism. My problem...

    I drive a 2003 325xi with 83,000 miles and I've noticed whenever I shift into Reverse or Drive, it will make a thumping noise along with a small jerk. The car shifts fine when I'm driving, except if I really hammer the gas it'll slightly jerk. I'm wondering what this could be
  18. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hello, all. Firstly, I'm new here, so I may not be in the right place, but hopefully I'm close. I've got an early 2000s 323i at my garage where I work, and my boss has told me that I could have the engine and tranny out of it, since the person who was buying it blew a head gasket. Yes, I...
