What do you have?
That's not true. Re-read the information. It says its not available to CONSUMERS. Maybe he work for a dealer of sorts or is in some way not considered a consumer (business maybe?).

Actually, it's just for my AM Radio problems....

1. TSB 650299: April 99, Audio - E46 Generator Interference Whine on AM Band
2. TSB 650199: April 99, Audio - E46 Radio Noise on AM Band/Poor AM Reception


As inncocent as these TSBs are, the dealer wouldn't let me read them.... silly way of showing customer service.....

I remember others here tlaking about some kind of fan recall, is this what they are tlaking about.
Do I need to take my car into the dealer and ask tehm about this and have them replace the fan?

Thanks for any help!

Here you go.. that antenna amp can also be responsible for clicking and whining sounds, has to be changed out for a newer one. Service bulletin 650299.

I should also add that metallic window films will cut into your AM reception.

Are there newer and/or better Antenna Amplifiers available?

I'd be happy to put some money into a new amp if it would help the AM reception static/noise problem. (And no, I don't have tint or anything added to the windows.)

Here's the new number but probably wont address general static noise, could be a break in the windshield antenna, poor connection at the head unit or elsewhere.

Where are your TSBs from?

Are you guys using the ALLData CDs ?

Or maybe the BMW Factory Repair Manuals on CD ?

I see a few of these BMW CDs for sale on Ebay for around $40, they claim to include the "Service information bulletins".... I'm not sure if that means the TSBs are included.

Example:

All Service Bulletins (TSB's) are on the TIS CD.
