  1. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    A couple of weeks ago I fount the right front axle inner boot completely torn off right at the rear clamp. The new axle I bought had a note indicating a tear like that could be due to bad motor mounts. I've tested the motor mounts and they are fine. When I went for a test drive the first left...
  2. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    I know this is a frequent & variety of problems. There have been various postings which take some tracing. I have had the strut 'Bosman' fix and have since replaced the sensor to great effect. Yesterday I had another problem. My roof stopped while closing with the front roof up, wings up, rear...

    I have a 2004 330ci. The top was working fine until my wife opened the passenger side door while it was in the process of opening. It immediately stopped and has not opened since. It opens about 2" from the top and then stops. I was thinking it would be some type of reset, but have not been...

    I have a 2013 X3 xDrive28i. I tried to unlock my door with my key fob, but car would not unlock. I then manually unlocked the driver side door. The alarm sounded at this point. I tried to start the engine, but pressing the Start button did absolutely nothing. The alarm stopped. I tried to...

    Hi All, Hopefully someone will have an answer for me; I woke up this-morning and went down to my car (a Dec-2010 525d) to find both front windows open about 2 or 3 inches. The car was still locked with the mirrors folded in and I live in a 10th floor apartment from which the key doesn't...

  9. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I drive a 2013 x5 35i. Recently I've been pushing the car to the limit at high rpm's. Thinking it's no problem since BMW claims to be the ultimate driving machine I'm quiet disappointed. I recently tied open the passenger side exhaust so the car sounds amazing at low revs along with high. I've...

    Hi, ppl! I'm so glad I found this forum, 'cause I need help and I very much hope to find it here. I looked through, and lots of people seem to wear really smart pants here))). Ok, the problem is LOCKING and UNLOCKING, and I CANNOT go to a dealer and/or any other repair shop due to finances...

    Hi I have a 97 E39 529 and last night i couldnt open the drivers door after a trip to the shops. The central locking appears to be working fine and i can not open the door from inside either. I have just removed the interior handle and pulling the cable can hear it trying to release but still...
  14. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hey guys, has anyone tried to retrofit MY'11 F10s with the auto-open trunk kit that allows the driver to "kick" underneath the bumper (like MY'12 F10s and F30s)? Thanks!

Usually it will be Vertical. With the keyhole in a Horizontal position, i can take the key out and insert...

    Hello, My hood release line snapped right by the front left fender. Now i can't open the hood. Any suggestions besides cutting a hole in the hood. It is shut all the way and there is no way to pop it using the handle from inside the car. Thank You!:)
  18. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    Hi all, I took off the door panel to see if I could fix the door handle. It will not open from the inside. The problem is that there is only one visible screw (by the handle) and I know there must be another because I could not get the entire panel off. Any suggestions? 1990 535i. Thanks!
  19. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    These past couple of days I had a chance to really drive my 2004 730d . I have to say I'm very impressed by the car, my brother has a 2002 S - Class, and I have to say the 7 looks much better both inside and out, and also drives much better. I'm falling in love with the 7! I was driving it on...
  20. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    My 2002 BMW 745i is new to me. I don't know much about the way the passenger doors work, but it seems they would stay open a little better than they do. Even when I open them all the way, they seem to slowly but surely click back to almost closed. I noticed there is some type of hydrolic rod...
