They go away after turning the car off and on again. They don't come on as easy in sport plus and with dsc disabled fully by holding...

  5. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I bought an F33 recently for a massive discount because it had a light and a warning in the instrument cluster. Says “chassis stabilization drive moderately”. The dealership I bought it from said it could be anything from a transfer case, to a random sensor, so I took it to a trusted mechanic...

  8. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Please help: F25 2017 X3 35i Is it true the front diff takes GL-5 and the rear diff takes GL-4? Does each differential have different internal components requiring different fluids? ALSO What are the proper fill quantities for front and rear? Bimmerworld told me 0.7 qts. front and 1.4 qts rear...

    Hi everyone, I have a '07 E83 manual M-Sport with 275k. I'm getting a clunking noise/feeling when making tight turns. When I turn on gravel I can see marks that look like the front tires are jumping/skipping. This only has been happening for about 1 day and I stopped driving the car. I've...

    hi fellows My 2015 x3 f25 20d is vibrating/shuddering on low gears, took it to the dealer for diagnosis, the transfer case needs a service (not a surprise). After the oil change and recalibration, the improvement is minor, dealer has advised the whole case needs to be replaced in order to fix...
  11. 3 Series & 4 Series
    I bought a used 2019 330i xDrive with 11,000 miles on Carvana about 20 days ago. Before I can even take the paper tags off of my car I hit a pothole and popped my front passenger tire. Being new to BMW and AWD I have ran into the “you need to change all 4 tires since it’s AWD” situation. 2...

  13. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hi all, First post here. I have had my 2014 F31 diesel wagon since new. I love this car. There was nothing wrong with it, but then I took it to my dealer for the transfer case recall. Now, on a dead cold startup (we are in upstate NY, so 20-30 degrees F) there is significant vibration...
  14. X3 M, X5 M, X6 M, Z3 M & Z4 M
    Greetings, One rainy day my '05 X3 2.5i w/ manual transmission started making an aspirated sputtering sound in the 1st, 2nd, and sometimes 3rd gears between 1k and 3k rpm. It sounds like a much lower pitched car from the Jetson's cartoon.The sound is dependent on rpms but stays the same if the...
  15. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    Any thoughts about if its worth changing the fluid in the rear diff? I have 83,000 miles now and just did the transmission partial fluid (4L+) and filter exchange and Transfer Case fluid drain (.5L+), fill and reset adaptations through ISTA+). Very pleased with the results. I think the TC was...

    So I've been chasing this issue for 6 months. 2014 X5 F15 35i, 82,000 miles. Changed plugs, coils, reset throttle adaptations, reset transmission adaptations, changed throttle body, did the Hokee Pokee, no related codes, dealer no help. Last item on checklist: drain and refill Transfer Case...

  18. Do-It-Yourself H.Q.
    My 2008 X3 E83 had worn transfer case actuator gear that caused triad of lights. Fixed this by replacing the worn plastic gear, flushing the transfer case fluid and re-calibrating transfer case with ISTA/D. After 1000+ miles the triad of lights came back. However, this time I am NOT...
  19. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hey Guys, First post, but I need some help. I have a 2010 E83, and the 4x4 and brake lights have been lit up yellow for about a year now. I took it in for diagnostics a couple places and was told that it is likely the actuator gear on the transfer case. They said it's common for this model X3...
