  2. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Backstory; I have a 1997 Z3 and it stopped cranking when I took it to a mechanic for a front-end repair. After taking it to 4 different mechanics who all promised they could figure it out, I parked it under a shop for the past year. (Don’t bother hitting me with the ‘I would have made him fix...

    Hi, I have a 1999 z3 coupe that got damaged in a storm. Branch crack glass. Can't find the passenger blade window for a couple. I purchased one off of ebay, just to find out it came out of a convertible, which is not the same glass, even though bmw put the same numbers on both glass blades...

    Hi all, I'm new to the forums, but have seen some great trouble-shooting tips here, so hoping I can get some tips here related to my Z3. I have a 2001 2.5i with a brake issue. I've had it for a while but finally got around to trying to actually fix it. Initially I could drive down the road...

    Recently bought a beautiful 2000 Z3 and would like to get locks fixed. The driver's side lock cylinder won't turn to lock or unlock either way. The Passenger side door will turn right to unlock, but won't turn left to lock. The trunk lock (of all locks) is the only one that works great and...

    I have a 2000 Z3. I took my car to my mechanic and he said I needed to change my MAF because of some issues I had been having and the airflow codes it was throwing out. So I changed the old one out with a brand new one and thought awesome! It ran better and I was excited. The next day I had an...

    So I just bought a 97 Z3 1.9l that has 80k miles and has been sitting for a little under 2 years and currently doesn't start. I was told that it likely needs a new fuel pump and may need new injectors. I plan on flushing the fluids and trying to run some new gas through the tank and lines bu...

    I have a 99 Z3 Roadster with a 2.5 and a 5 speed. I stole the 4.4 out of my 2001 740i and bought an e34 V8 5 speed to mate to it. I have upgraded rotors/pads and bought a conversion kit to fit the motor in the Z3. I plan on getting fully adjustable coilovers (planning on megan racing) walboro...

    A week ago my radio stopped working as I was driving. No sound coming out of the speakers (other threads discuss a buzz when the amp is going). The radio has two fuses (9, and 44) and 44 was blown. Put in a new one, started the car and nothing happened. Checked the new fuse and it was blown...
  15. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    My 2000 Z3 comes up with an intermittent ABS light. Sometimes it will come on upon start, sometimes while driving. What is equally strange is that it will go out while driving or disappear upon the next start. I have a couple of OBDII analyzers which show nothing. I thought I heard somewhere...

    Time for a new battery in my 98 Z3. The PO put in a new BMW battery just before I bought it 5 years ago. I want to replace it with something other than the glorified lawn mower battery that BMW sells. Looking in the forums I see that the battery replacement and type is registered in the...

    Will it damage or cause problems for my 97 Z3 Roadster if I install these on my car? 4 Pc BMW 10mm & 15mm Hub Centric Wheel Spacers Plus 20 Conical Lug Bolts Chrome. I wander if there would be a problem with the wheel bearings or camber in the back?

    Hello, I recently bought a 1998 Z3 and I've got a question. I can lock both doors and the trunk from any outside lock. However, I can't unlock the driver's side door from the outside driver's side lock, just from passenger side or trunk. I would really like to be able to unlock driver's side...

    First, I need help getting something straight. I own a 2000 BMW Z3 2.3l (2.5) I6. Is my car based off of the E36 platform or the E46 platform? I've heard both. With that out the way, let's get into my issues. I'll start with what I know. I need to replace the valve cover gasket, and it has a...
