    Recently I changed the front tension struts, the twisty looking ones, on my high mileage 2009 stock 328i. There was something odd about unscrewing the nut securing each strut on the ball joint end. The nut loosened ok and then became progressively harder to unscrew. I cleaned the portion of the...

    Noticed a low humming noise when decelerating from 3rd to 2nd gear as well as a slight vibration . The vehicle almost seems to slow down quicker than usual when the foot is off the gas, like there's maybe drag somewhere. The noise only comes when decelerating in the lower gears only and drives...

    OK, I just finished with a front end replacement on my X5. All new ball joints, tie rods, control arms, etc. Along the way, I noticed that the CV boots on the drivers side were torn and joints worn, so I went ahead and replaced both inner and outer joints. Put it all back together, put a...

    Bmw e46 2002 325i, front left driver wheel humming at 40 mph. Almost like a vibration. I believe its a wheel bearing. Please advise, also please recommend some good brands? How good is ***?! MOOG?!

    Hi All, I think I have a front wheel bearing going out. I've watched some DIY videos on the job and they generally use a hydraulic press to remove and reinstall the bearing. I have also seen videos where people use a $110 Harbor Freight universal bearing tool. I just ordered a new bearing...

    This forum has already helped me, thanks to all that have come before! :) I am the new owner of a '96 Z3 1.9 manual, 70K miles. Since the history on the car is unknown, I plan to start with the basics: change the fluids (oil, brake/clutch, coolant, rear diff, power steering), plus the spark...

    Alright, so I understand there's other posts on this topic, but I've tried them and they aren't working. I'm removing the rear right hub on a 2006 325xi and everything is disconnected, except for the driveshaft. For some reason it's stuck in the hub and I was wondering if there's anything I can...
  8. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    I was wondering if it is necessary to replace the whole hub or will just the bearing inside the hub be sufficient?
  9. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hey guys 2008 sport package 4.8 X5 here. Does anyone know if i need a special tool to replace the entire wheel hub on the front wheel? In addition, i see some of these with a sensor hook up and some without... anyone know the deal with that? Thank you...

    Hello BMW owners! My front drivers side wheel bearing started to hum. Turn to the right it goes away, turn to the left and it comes back. It got louder and louder as the weeks went by. I found this online parts store and bought a hub/bearing assembly for $47 taxes in with free shipping. To...
  11. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I guess I am new to the brake wear sensor on the front left and rear right wheels having never owned a BMW. I picked up the car a few weeks ago and it was just warning of brakes need changed. I ordered some new pads but was going to try reusing the sensor. Good brake job but cant clear Idrive...
  12. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I recently replaced both front wheel bearings in a 2003 325i. Everything seemed smooth the first day or so after the work was done, but I am starting to get some shaking from the front end when I get up to higher speeds. Does anyone know if an alignment needs to be done after this repair, or...
  13. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello all, A few weeks ago I replaced my driveshaft, see This Thread Here After about 10-15 miles of driving and coming to a stop, I noticed that when letting the clutch out and moving forward, I feel a clink (word choice is specific) in the shifter and pedals. With the windows down its...
  14. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Ok heres the scoop.... The tie rod on the passenger side was getting worn, replaced both at once with new. Alignment done. Shortly after, the passenger bearing was just grinding. How I troubleshoot it was Drive on highway, turn right grind is gone. Turn Left the grind is louder. Got new...
  15. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I know it was a mistake but I stopped by a firestone to buy new tires and decided to have them check out My suspension. They told me that my Driver side rear wheel bearing was shot and That my wheel could fall off at any moment. Being an inexperienced car owner I panicked and had them replace...
  16. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Hi, I am at a loss of what to do with my current situation. PLEASE HELP ME! I bought a 2008 Certified BMW 650i, mint condition, a year and half ago. Beautiful car, amazing ride, only 25K miles. Last week I was driving to work in the morning, and my brakes failed as I approached a traffic...
  17. 6 Series DIY
    I'm changing my rear wheel bearings on my 645ci, can anybody tell the the torque values for all the bolts involved with this repair. Do I have to drop the exhaust to remove the axle shaft or is there some other trick that I don't know of?
  18. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    i recently changed my passenger rear wheel bearing because it started making a pretty mean growling noise and changing it was A PAIN! then when installing an LSD, im pretty sure i heard beads dropping. I didnt pay much attention to that thinking it was just dirt falling off the wheel well. then...
  19. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    I need to replace my rear wheel bearings, does it matter what brand I get? Is the brand that starts with an F and ends in a G (I can post it because its a "bad" word) or Pex okay or would I be better off to get TIMKEN or Beck Arnley? I'm just wondering if I should care what brand I should get.
  20. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Hey Guys, I need repair instructions or illustrations so I can remove and replace my front wheel bearings. If available, rear wheel bearing too. My 6er has this constant groan when driving at 65 MPH+. Diagnosis is the front wheel bearings. Help is much appreciated. Hope to get her back...
