    Whats up guys, fairly new member here. I seem to have a squealing/squeaking noise when braking, I'd say after pressing the brake down 50% I get this pulsing squealing, kind of sounds like a bird tweeting, not sure how to explain the noise Would anyone know what this might be?. I do have a video...

    Hey guys, I've been having a mild vibration mid car for the last 2 years and it's recently gotten worse. Now in reverse it's making this squeaking sound. What do you think? 178,000 km / 110,000 miles Squeak only occurs in reverse, not in forward. When the drivetrain is loaded in the...

    I have a 2006 bmw 325xi sedan and when you drive over bumps, no matter how small, there's a loud annoying squeak from the back right corner. It sounds like it's pretty high up, but it's behind the back right seat. It sounds too high up to just be the battery squeaking around

    I've recently noticed when reversing and driving forward, a squeaking noise, but only at low speeds. The emergency brake is not on, first of all. By low speeds I mean under 10mph. I had my car serviced a few weeks back and mentioned it to the service tech. but they didn't hear anything...guess...

    Wassup guys, I'm noticing a squeak when I turn my steering wheel to the right, and the steering wheel feels really tight. After a bit of researching, I found that the lower bearing is the most common cause(number 7 in the picture) and I'm going to attempt to spray it with some lubricant. 1...
  8. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    My AT 2011 X5 recently developed a screeching/squeaking/almost metal on metal sound while I am in gear and coasting. When I put my foot on the gas the sound stops. The sound is RPM dependent - the faster I go the faster the sound, making me think wheels/brakes/pads, etc. The car, however...
  9. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I took my car in for its first oil change on Friday, and mentioned the steering wheel squeaked while parking. They gave me a loaner X1. I called at least once a day for updates, my service advisor advised me they were still diagnosing the problem. Finally this morning (Tuesday), I was told the...
  10. F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
    Purchased a brand new 228 with M packages. I have had to listen to squeaky brakes since purchase. Thought brakes needed to be worked in but after 4000km problem still there. Brought to the dealer twice and they can't find any problems and there is no fix. Tired of sounding like a streetcar...

    I'm in the SFO bay area, and recently bought a 2012 528i X drive a a certified pre owned. Great car, low mileage. However, I bought it when temperatures were around 93 F and now when it's 43 F, I'm noticing rattles and squeaks I hadn't when test driving etc. There are high frequency...

    Hey guys, I have a '98 323is with a few interesting problems. Looking for some advice 1.) The heat shield above exhaust is fully resting on the muffler. I was thinking of just ripping it out or buying some washers and bolting it back up. Anything negative about removing it? 2.)The driveshaft...
  13. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I recently acquired a 2001 X5 and the rotors were so terrible that when braking the car felt like you were riding a paint agitator. It was ridiculously violent. The day I got the car, I replaced the front rotors and reinstalled the existing pads with the brand new rotors. I didn't apply lube to...

    Experiencing -30 to -40 weather here currently and it's brought out a squeak coming from the rear driver side tire over any little or big bump. After reading other threads the consensus is new sway bar bushings are needed however I don't live near a dealership. Are bushings common that any...

    Hi there, The last week we had -36 celsius weather here in Sudbury.. Yesterday there I started to hear a constant squeak while driving with every little bump in the road. I thought it was just because of the freezing weather but its much warmer today and the squeak continues. Its coming from...
  16. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hi guys, I have a problem with my 2001 Z3 3.0 Roadster. It started to make creaking, popping, squeaking, sound from the front suspension. This happens when I go over a speed bump (10 kph) or when I turn right; sometimes when I'm park and I turn the steering wheel right does that but only 2 or 3...
  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    So, here is the deal. I replaced my water pump, pulleys (idler, tensioner, and water pump), and belts. Things were working perfectly for about a year. Then, one night me and my best friend did two 0-60 runs just to see how fast my 97 528 was. This was the only abnormal driving I did since I baby...

    My friend just took his 2009 335i in for the hpfp recall. He was also having the low speed brake squeak and the tech told him that BMW had issued an SIB for the squeak recently. They changed out his pads for free and solved the problem. Does anyone have any info on this bulletin? I'm taking my...
  19. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hey guys, I searched all over and haven't found anyone else that has this same problem. Car: 2003 330ci with ~65k miles After driving for a while each day when i apply the brakes a horrible noise is heard. It sounds like those older cars that barely run and you can hear the awful squeal from...
