    Hey everyone, I have been a long time reader on bimmerforums, though I am recently registered, and have always been able to find the answers to questions regarding my '02 BMW 525I. But I have been having a long term steering problem, which I think is quite irregular and taxing. Everytime I...

    Checking / replacing inner/outer tie rods I checked my ball joints by when grabbing the wheel @ 12 & 6 oclock all was good, but by checking 9 & 6 there was noticable play. One side was noticably worse, and found slop in the outer tie rod. The E46 00' 323i, has 145k. Is it necessary to replace...

On further inspection I noticed what I was afraid was hydraulic fluid on the diver side boot and on...

    Does anyone know what size tool I need to remove the tie rod ball joints? - they seem to come in 19mm, 20mm, 22mm etc . - I don't want to waste my money on the wrong one. thanks everyone.

    So I recently purchase an 86 325e from a guy in NC. The only thing I noticed when I purchased the car was that the ball joints were severaly worn (probably shouldn'y have driven it home). So I bought an entire front end kit with new control arms, tie rods, and poly bushings and installed this...

    Hi all. This is my first post. I've spent the past two weeks scouring these boards for information on the car I recently purchased (2002 325xi). I've noticed people always want n00bs to use the search button (which I did) but I have some questions because this is my first BMW so I'm not sure how...
