    I needed to remove the steering column intermediate section; that’s the section that runs down to the rack. My Haynes manual says to remove the pinch bolts and push the two halves of the shaft together to release it from the splines on the rack and at the base of the steering column...

    Hello everyone Longstory short I am looking for some kind of advice, I have a friend that has no room for an auction e46 04 330xi. The 330 randomly has its steering column pulled but still in the car and it seems stripped down a bit. What does anyone think is wrong or happened? And how bad would...

    Complete BMW steering column switch assembly. Bought for my son's 2007 BMW 328i a couple of years ago and he wound up totalling the car before installing. I believe it is part number 61319123056 and fits many different models BMW 325i 2006-2006 + BMW 325xi 2006-2006 + BMW 328i 2007-2013 +...

    2007 E90 335i Sedan I drove with the ELV malfunction red error for awhile, during which time my battery kept going flat. Last weekend the car sat all weekend and would not start Sunday evening and hasn't since. Unlock car, get in, push start Error pops up in dash center for Steering Lock...

    ok so the other day, while I was at work, I went for lunch and when I got in and started the car, for the first time I heard this weird clicking noise, and noticed the steering wheel didnt move like it usually does. If I try to move it manually using the button on the left it still makes the...

    I have a 2008 BMW 750Li the the steering column goes down instead of up when shutting the car off. Please help as I feel that I'm getting trapped and I can't get out. The column switch works fine, and I've set the position but it just won't go up when the car is turned off. This is in regards to...

    Just picked up a 99 540iT Sportwagon and am trying to shake out the little bugs. I was coming home from Mavericks (HMB) and got the dreaded "TRANS. FAILSAFE PROG" message on the display. Didn't seem to have any tranny issues and I switched to "sport mode" to undo an annoying driver in the...
  8. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I hope that someone can help me out with the little problem that I am having with my 2006 520d. The electronic steering lock warning has appeared on the car recently; the warning is yellow rather than red. I have no problem starting the car and the steering wheel has no problem with unlocking...

    First of all hi. I have been lurking around for a year or so and have obtained great info here. Never needed to post a thread. I have read threads all afternoon and some things sound like my case but then...somethings don't. I have a 1993 318i 5 speed. Car will not start. Ignition key problem...

    This week my steering column began a squeaking sound almost like winding a spring. does anyone have an idea what it may be. 1995 318ic 160000 miles.
  11. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    ok so my 98 740il has a peeling 4 spoke steering wheel and i went to replace it and it wouldnt come off. After disconnecting the battery, I started off with removing the 2 torx bits holding in the air bag, then i unplugged the airbag and steering controls, and then i unplugged all those wires...

    The new ignition housing arrived, finally is the right one. Though they did send me a unit that had a broken bolt where the ground wire should be mounted. I chiseled tapped out the bolts that clamp the unit to the steering column and replaced with Allan head bolts instead of the break away...

    I'm not a big fan of the power steering column to start with. Seems like a waste, but mine seems to have a mind of it's own. All the movements are working, up, down, in and out. If I position the column in towards the dash, it will slowly work itself out fully as I drive. It's as if there is...
  14. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I have a 2004 745il and when I turn the ignition off, the steering column comes down, and to a point where I have to raise it back up to get out of the car. I tried resetting my set settings but nothing seems to work. I reviewed the owners manual and it didn't say anything about this. It did say...
  15. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    OK, I assure everyone that I have searched through all the old info on this issue, but I am still left with a driver's seat and steering column that won't adjust. It appears as though most folks find a loose connector and a broken plug shroud to be the cause of the issue. Unfortunately, I found...

    I dropped my car to the local BMW dealer, they somehow got the brake and DSC warning lights on, when I took my car in for brake fluid and microfilter service. The warning lights never came on before, it only happened at their garage, they said it's a coincidence. But reading the posts on the...

    Early New Years morning, I was driving my 1999 328i home when the high beams began to act erratically-flickering and such with no correlation to the switch on the steering column. About 30 seconds after I parked the car, and removed the key from the ignition, every single friggin light either...
  18. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hi. Have just bought a 98 e36 coupe. Before that I owned a 79 e24 (635) which had a telescopic steering wheel which was great and in my opinion the e36 needs too - my arms obviously aren't long enough! Has anyone out there actually fitted a telescopic steering wheel to an e36 or am I waisting...
  19. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    When I brake quickly the front left seems to grab more, however only at initial braking. Also when hitting bumps in the road I can hear a distinct and fairly loud noise. Also when I was making a full turn today the steering appeared to go past the point of the normal radius and I had to pull...
  20. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi everyone, great forum! I own a 2001 X5 4.4i with about 130,000 miles on it. It has every option that BMW offered. I am experiencing a creaking or crunching noise that seems to be coming from the steering wheel area. This isn't a power steering noise or motor as far as I can tell. I have...
