    Hello guys, I bought an oil filter housing from an M50 engine (the one with the metal cap as opposed the plastic one that comes as standard). I wish to swap the one with the plastic cap for the m50 one. Only problem is, i have no clue how to mount the power steering reservoir. The original...
  2. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Ok, so a couple months ago, my X5 started over heating (with no warning, at airport pickup of all places). A hose completely failed and all coolant drained. Had it towed to shop. They said it was just the hose failing and replaced it. Picked it up and drove to an appointment and back home...when...

    New user of this forum. Recently bought a '12 550i, still under warranty with about 48K miles. A few days ago i got my car back from the N63 CCP service. While doing a cursory check under the hood today, i noticed the biturbo reservoir is very low on fluid (practically dry). Want to add liquid...

    Hi everyone! :) Where is the windshield washer fluid reservoir/tank located on the 35i? Having trouble finding specific instructions for the F15 model. http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=KR23&mospid=56085&btnr=61_3340&hg=61&fg=45 Long story short, I just need to check it. Hoping...

    So, about a weak ago, (now we tweakin' h*), my Bimmer decided it was done blowing hot air, not a great season to only get cold air. Then my coolant light came on, my coolant was extremely low. I asked the previous owner of the car which coolant he had in there, because it's a dark reservoir, he...

    I slightly overfilled the coolant reservoir on my 2008 535 and was using a 5 inch piece of 3/8 inch copper tubing to siphon some out. I lost the handle and dropped the tubing into the reservoir. I can't see it and I would imagine it's just sitting at the bottom of the tank. Do I need to worry...

    While replacing the PS reservoir today, I had to resort to cutting the smaller hose that runs from the cooler lines back to the reservoir. I cut it off right at the end of the reservoir nipple so I would have enough slack to reuse the hose. For whatever reason though, it is now a little short...
  10. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So, my car overheated yesterday and I checked my expansion tank/reservoir and noticed the coolant low. The closest dealership is over an hour away. I poked around the 'fest for a while and everyone keeps saying, "only use BMW OEM coolant!" Why? What is so special about it. I decided to look it...

    could someone please describe for me where the coolant reservoir goes in a 1995 BMW 325i or attach a picture.
  12. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hi, We have 2004 Z4 2.5i, and we had it inspected 3 weeks ago nothing was wrong. We got the pads and the tires changed. A week later we noticed the coolant low light turn on. we read online that it was best to add distilled water since its not winter yet, and then get it flushed and replaced...
  13. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hi, We have a 2004 Z4 2.5i, 88K and we had it inspected 3 weeks ago; nothing was wrong-except they changed the engine belts, break pads, and tires by the global imports BMW and they said the car was in perfect condition. A week later we noticed the coolant low light turned on and off as we were...
  14. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    This has been an ongoing problem for a few months, but I've been lazy about fixing it. I filled my reservoir with fluid and then pulled on the stalk and no fluid came out. Wipers came on, and I could hear the pump turn on, but only a little fluid squirted out of nozzle. So, I figured there was a...
