  1. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I have an X3 E83 M54. A few months back, I realized that there was smoke coming out from the vent and I thought it was just an one time event because it did not happen for a few days. The second time it happened, I tried to figure out where the smoke was coming from and it seems that its coming...
  2. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey guys, I'm just about ready to pull all my hair out. I recently picked up a super clean 2003 540i M-Sport with 89,000 miles (Auto) and it was running a little rough. I replaced the coil packs, spark plugs, crankcase vent, valve cover gaskets, vanos seals, alternator and radiator and all was...
  3. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hi Folks Can anyone tell me what this breather is called on the X5 E70 (UK no carbon canister) diesel fuel tank in GREEN and can it be accessed from the back seat of the car? Having a problem with fuel filling where the garage fuel pump keeps cutting out. Driving me crazy. Many thanks.
  4. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi guys, hoping for some answers. Just got this 2005 x3 and it's got a few issues. 1. When I first got it, the heaters were working, but nothing would come out of the defrost vents. The controls are the dial style, and it didn't seem to line up - I'd have it pointing at the feet and it...
  5. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I need help on this. I got the BMW replacement finisher part for the upper hood vent that holds the wiper spray nozzles. Kink below. When I got it, the one part had 2 layers that separated. Has anyone else replaced this? Can you tell me if it is supposed to be two parts? I'm thinking it...
  6. Southwest Regional - AZ, NM, NV, OK, TX, and UT
    These valve covers have a built in non replaceable crankcase vent valve. The symptoms the car may exhibit when the valve is faulty are: check engine light, rough running or stalling, and also a high pitched whistling noise. It fits the 1 series, 3 series, 5 series, x4, x5 and the z4. If you...
  7. F06 Gran Coupe (2013 - 2018)
    Since owning my 2015 f06 ( in the uk so right hand drive) I've had an annoying rattle behind the centre of the dashboard only when the engine is cold for the first 5 minutes or so. Then it went as the car warmed up. It appeared to be coming from behind the idrive screen. I think I've finally...
  8. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)

    Diesels- Have If so, this is a common problem that BMW needs to address. It is an EGR cooler or EGR Valve issue leaking exhaust in the engine compartment and blowing exhaust through the vents. File a complaint here to push for a recall. it takes 30 seconds. just have your VIN ready...
  11. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So I did a foolish thing and put a single key on that dash which slid into the defrost vent. How can I get it out? - 07 328i 4D.
  12. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hey guys, I own a 2002 325i and recently I drove from Breckenridge to Boulder Co. The altitude in breck is about 9,600ft and about 6,000ft in boulder. Anyways, I tried to fill up my gas tank while down there and had to use a pair of pliers to get the gas cap off because of a combination of the...
  13. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I here a high pitched sound in the middle vent area when I go 60mph while the wind is blowing hard outside. It's driving me nuts. I pulled the vent housing out but the sound is still there. Can anyone help me here ?
  14. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Just bought a 328i and something attacked the back which is really bothering me. I was wondering if there are any options for replacing or touching up the paint on the rear a/c and heat vent console?
  15. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    EDIT: As per filon102 below, we should strive to locate a good BMW description, with fluid flow diagrams, of how the expansion tank works for all three major E39 engines (M52, M54, & M62). A recent thread got me thinking again, after about a year or two since I had autopsied my 2002 expansion...
  16. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    First time post wanted to share my recent experience. At 56K (kms) had annual oil change and dealer noticed oil on the top of the shrouds (only 1 or 2 drops had made it onto my driveway which i'd noticed maybe 4 weeks prior and though nothing of). So much oil on the bottom of the car they...
  17. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Z4 2007 coupe A couple of days ago my car started making a strange noise. If the noise had always existed I wouldn't worry, but it's 40k miles and 5 years old and just now started making this noise. The noise is fairly loud too. When the ignition-key is turned to position 2 (position right...
  18. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    K, so any time I close my sunroof, about 30 seconds later, it opens up to the vent position, every time without fail. Does anyone have any idea what causes this and/or how to fix it?
  19. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Z4 2007 40k miles Day 1 relatively loud fan noise coming from behind/under/inside driver's side dash near headlight switch. I made sure the air conditioning and fan controls were off. Never really heard this particular fan noise before; I'm assuming it's the e-box fan. Also, no air flow was...
  20. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hey guys, okay, I've tried to live without being able to listen to my iPod long enough haha. :eek: Can someone please give me a link exactly how to connect an AUX cable to the back of my stock premium package radio? I really am wanting to do this. How much would I have to pay to have one...
