  1. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hey guys, First off... I don't know much about cars. I bought this car a few months ago with no issues at all. Well taken care of, just needed a new back window. Replaced that and have been driving the car with no issues until recently. It has started to make a loud grinding noise while...
  2. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    When the ac is active i hear a slight chirp or cricket type sound. It is only present when the ac is on and gets slightly louder the higher i put the blower up. I feel like its some sort of bearings going out or needing oil. any ideas? 120k miles
  3. 3 Series & 4 Series
    Hey guys, My fiancés car has started having a very interesting sound. Whenever the accelerator is pushed, it's almost like a continuous creaking sound. Whenever you let off the accelerator the noise stops. It happens when one person is in the car, but is much more pronounced whenever there is...

  5. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Picked up a lovely 316 Ti E46 2004 for a song and have gradually been working on it to bring it back to where it should be. Remote keys don't work and I presume its the coils inside but thought I'd just check the central locking fuses first (if it was going to be a simple fix then woop-de-doo)...
  6. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello, I have been having a nightmare in finding the source of a whining noise that is coming from my 318d M sport. I can't figure out where. Brought it to a garage and they kept looking at each other. Lol I have changed the belt Taken the belt out and started the car Check all the pulley to...
  7. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Good day. I urgently need advice please. About three days ago early morning my wife and I left to gym and we put the heater on because it was cold. The Coolant Level warning light came on so we went to the closest petrol station and checked the coolant level, but it was at the max level. We...
  8. G30 (2017 - Current)
    Hey bimmerfest members, After 4 years of driving a F10 530 diesel, I decided to get the G30 540 with a gas engine. I bought the car a month ago, at 5700KM (young used card) from a BMW dealer in Germany. The car has now 10.800 KM and it developed an engine sound, like an used bearing, or a belt...
  9. G30 (2017 - Current)
    I have just had a brand new BMW 530 e x Drive, for less than a week. My wife drives this car and hears a very loud squeaky sound when she comes to a slow stop at the traffic lights or when parking her car. She is very embarrassed, to say the least and when the wife is unhappy with a sparkling...

    Hello I have an e92 328xi 2008 sport package.. I have a problem with my front suspension.. Whenever I drive fast over a bump or something big I can hear that squeaking spring noise.. I believe those are the struts or shocks that need to be replaced. The car has 78k miles on it and I bought it...
  11. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello, I've started experiencing this problem about 2 weeks ago, whenever I start the car in the morning and try to turn the wheel it produces a massive screeching noise. The thing is that the noise usually is no longer produced when the car is running at operational temperature, just when it...

    Hi everyone, Delighted to say that I purchased a 2007 630i last week. Still getting used to all the menus and toys in the car! I noticed there was a TV option in the iDrive menu but anytime I go to auto store the channels all I get is white noise. I tried changing the location between...

  16. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi all, I picked up an '07 E90, with 93k on the clock. Everything seemed lovely, save the need to sort the brakes. The car, however, has started developing a whistling noise when moving. Never when stationery. It starts around 25mph and is pretty much continuous whatever the speed. It...

    Hello, hope I'm posting in the right place; new here! Just bought a 520D F11 manual with 48k on the clock (built Dec 10), which is my first bimmer. I've noticed that under acceleration there is subtle noise eminating from the gear stick, presumably through the transmission. I can only...
  18. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello Bimmerfest, I am calling this problem weird because two of the mechanics I took the car to couldn't figure out the cause. Anyways when I am driving my X5 fast and then slow down or break, the car starts to make weird screeching noise - the type break pads make. But this doesn't happen all...

    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...
