    Video of noise here: It was low on coolant so I filled up the reservoir a bit under the max. I drove it around after fixing an electrical problem and everything seemed fine. It wasn't making this noise when it started up, but it has been sitting for a few months. After about 10 minutes of...
  2. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Hi, I have a 2012 BMW X3 f25 35i in great condition, only 30K miles. Recently I've noticed a smell like burnt plastic coming out from my AC left vent, only when my car is in a traffic light or stopped with the engine on for more than 10 minutes (Traffic is insane sometimes here in Miami). It is...

    Hello, The front brake pad sensor plug was very brittle and broke during replacement. I checked in realoem and can't find the part number for the plastic white two wire housing. I am looking for the side connected to the car, not the brake pad sensor side. All help is appreciated.
  4. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello, I own a 2006 BMW 530i, E60. I noticed today that the underside of my driver side mirror (the arm), has a cover(?) piece missing, that normally protects the inside wiring from the elements. Anyone know how I can fix this? Picture attached. Much thanks

    Hi everybody, Is there anyone that can help me with these 2 plastic covers? They both come from the seat, I know one is a cover for the metal rail but I don't know about the other. If you can identify them can you post a pic of where they should be or a thread how to plug them in thanks! Ps...

    Changed my coolant today. Regular maintenance for me. No big deal... Drain. Fill. Run bleeding procedure. Then I go to top it off. Tapped on the dipstick/float to check the coolant level. Guess what? Snap. Broke in half. Cannot find it great... Okay I'm done venting. What's your cooling system...
  7. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    I have a 2001 Z3. I have done the usual repair work at over 100,000 miles: replaced radiator, expansion tank, thermostat, water pump, etc. There's $2,000 worth of work. I've had Bilstein shocks installed, have had a window mechanism repaired, and more. My son is interested in a 2006 BMW 325i...

    ENGINE COMPARTMENT BULKHEAD PLASTIC/RUBBER PARTITION EPOXY REPAIR ISSUE: About a week after getting some service on my car, I noticed my bulkhead partitions were broken on the L, center, and R sections. This bulkhead separates the main engine bay from the windshield wiper bay to keep...
  9. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hi All, The other day I found that the rounded plastic cap that covers the alarm led below the rear view mirror had fallen inside the car. It's a transparent cap for the LED attached to the lower side of the mirror frame. A further inspection of the cap showed that 2 of the plastic hooks that...
  10. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hi all, The leather and plastic around the driver door has degraded. Wish to know if there is easy fix to this - new piece of leather can be changed and plastic around the window switches. Secondly, if there is no option, what do you think of these steel inserts - just to cover up the...
  11. F06 Gran Coupe (2013 - 2018)
    Since owning my 2015 f06 ( in the uk so right hand drive) I've had an annoying rattle behind the centre of the dashboard only when the engine is cold for the first 5 minutes or so. Then it went as the car warmed up. It appeared to be coming from behind the idrive screen. I think I've finally...
  12. F80/F82/F83 M3 and M4 (2015 - Current)
    Hi guys, I been reading all kinds of saying about the stock plastic charge pipe is gonna be a "time bomb"! Is it really that bad? the plastic pipe really gonna explode some day? Why is BMW putting such a under developed part in a M car? I dont know if it is necessary to change the charge...

    I have a plastic gas tank on my 530, i will never understand why plastic, i guess for weight reduction, but it bottomed out on a trailer with a flat tire, and slit a couple of thin cuts in my tank, a new one is out of the question, but a used one isnt too expensive, but i wonder about the job of...
  14. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I hate to start a new thread but I'm at a lose. I looked everywhere and read a ton here and elsewhere. I need the part number for the abs wheel speed sensor recepticle or female plug that recieves the abs wheel speed sensor. This is on my 2003 530i and the blue plastic connectors have become so...
  15. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I was backing up today and backed up right into a column in the parking structure. There are several paint chips, but what I am most worried about is there is a small 1 inch horizontal cut to the bumper plastic. How much do you guys think this will cost to fix? If I take it to a car detailer for...
  16. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    This is a minor DIY and not necessarily crucial, but it can suck up money if you buy plastic restorers such as Armor All, Back to black, etc. I wanted to change the windshield cowl, but couldn't take out the wiper arms. I've ordered the puller tool. In the mean time, the driver side wiper arm...

    The M62 engine accessory drive is the same as on the M60. There are 2 maintenance free belts: Belt 1: Crankshaft to A/C Compressor Belt 2: Crankshaft to water pump, alternator, and power steering pump The tension pulleys continue to be made of high stress plastic

    Hey everyone! This is my first post and I'm excited to be part of this community. I got myself a 2011 335i convertible as a graduation gift to myself, and I'm completely in love. I've tried searching this issue everywhere on this site, on Google, etc, but I think it's so minor that no one...
  19. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    My car is a 2003 BMW 330xi, and I have been experiencing an annoying rattle for a while now, the previous owner (my sister) got it stuck in mud and apparently knocked a plastic piece under the car loose and it is rattling. For some relevant back story I took the car to Hendrick BMW of Charlotte...
  20. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    So, I drive a BMW e36 328ic Automantic. My coolant sensor didn't show low and I drove about an hour with low coolant. It was raining, so I sat in my car in-front of my friends place, on the phone for about 10 minutes... then my car started rumbling, steam pouring from the hood, I turned it off...
