    Thank you for your time!!! My rear passenger door is halfway opening at random times a few times now. It's where my 4yr old sits so I need a fix asap. I have the child lock on so the inside handle still cannot operate/open the door but the outside one works fine. The problem triggers the...

  3. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I recently purchased a used 2003 BMW X5 and am in love with it. However before purchasing I didn't check if the rear wiper was working. After a bit of looking around I found out that the fuse was removed. I replaced the fuse and what do you know, the rear wiper works great! A few days later as...

    Brand new to the forum so please excuse me if the answer is elsewhere or if I've posted in the wrong area. I've recently acquired a 1999 528i with high mileage but a meticulous service history. Here's the issue: RANDOM misfire that codes P0300, 301, 302, 305 and 306. I understand that the...
  6. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    2005 E83 BMW X3 The dealer put this AUX connector for MP3 player (iPhone in my case) in the glove compartment a couple of years ago. Never really worked as advertised. As I'm listening to iphone 5 music or GPS it all of a sudden switches from AUX to radio.I switch it back and it does it again...

    I have a BMW E39 (1996 523i - German version) and have noticed an intermittent fault...it's only happened three times, but all within the last week. Basically, the dials (fuel level, speedo, tach, mpg) on the dash stop reading properly and start moving randomly. Additionally, my turn signals...

  9. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    So to start off I'm not very mechanically inclined at all (I'm sorry) trying to learn though I was driving my 94 318is doing probably about 35 mph, I went to accelerate and all of a sudden the car jerked forward and gas pedal wouldn't accelerate, it slowed down to about 5mph and just died...
  10. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I took in my 2011 BMW 335is to the dealer a couple weeks ago because the RPMs would twitch abnormally and when the car would try to switch gears, the next gear would rev up but there was no actual acceleration. The dealer ended up replacing a fuel injector, spark plug, and coil. Recently I...

  13. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    So... I was getting a feel for my new-to-me '84 325e last night - inspecting stuff, learning the locations of everything under the hood - when I noticed the front tube that comes forward from the air box (connecting to the plastic panel directly behind the headlight) was disconnected from this...
