    Hi all, Another important question from me trying to get my XI ride smooth again. And this is something that I have on my mind for a while and talked with several mechanics about, but that was inconclusive, for some reason it only came to my mind now to ask you guys. This is part of me trying...

    So I've had my 330i since the beginning of june. Since then I've done the cv joint, center bearing, driveshaft coupler/flex disc. In the 5 months, almost six that I've had it, ive replaced the carrier bearing 3 times. Going on 4. And I've replaced the flex disc 2 times. Is their a recommended...

    I have a 2001 330ci manual 5 speed transmission with 105,000 miles. I notice when i am slowing down while in gear i feel a little shutter that will go away always if i go into neutral. If I downshift I don't think I notice it like i do if say in 3rd and i am slowing down to let the engine wind...

    2000 323ci 133k miles with a grinding/whump noise from the rear, seems to be on the driver's side, resembling a failed wheel bearing. Just replaced all 4 wheel bearings, brand new F.A.G parts, and the persisting noise is similar to the failing rear wheel bearing that prompted the replacement...

    Alright guys, I’m going to describe this in as much detail as possible, so please bear with me… 2003 330i by the way, auto transmission (recently replaced) This morning I was enjoying a rather spirited drive, going about 85 mph in a low gear with the music up a little bit louder than it...

    Hello, Does it matter which direction rear wheel bearings go in? I figured there was not due to the wheels need to rotate in both direction but just wanted to make sure. Thanks for you expert advice. :)

    Hi everyone. I recently got a screaming deal on a 2004 330Xi. The vehicle was owned since new by an older gentleman, and he obviously cared for the vehicle meticulously. He had recently replaced rear springs, (LR was broken, so he replaced both), front shafts (one cv boot was split, replace both...

    Hi guys, so im pretty sure my front right wheel bearing on my 04' 325ci is getting worn out. Heck, its been making noise for the past two years (about 20k miles) or so and now its getting a little more annoying, not really loud but just... annoying. I have not had any trouble driving my car so...

    While replacing the front driver’s side CV axle I noticed that the bearing that the axel rides on in the differential is totally frozen and will not move at all. :banghead: currently it’s acting as a bushing, but I’m afraid that after a while it will start producing metal fragments, get into...

    I recently started hearing some squeeking sounds coming from my motor, more when it's cold, I think. Sounds like bearings going bad, and comes from the general vacility of the alternator, again, I think. :hmm: If you have 30 seconds, take a quick look at the video I shot...its not great, but...

    Hey Everyone, So this weekend I attempted to replace my rear passenger side wheel bearing that going bad. I have the usual sounds and vibrations coming from the rear of my car when going over 30 mph accompanied by vibrations now. So I've also been reading all the DIY's for this project for...

    My car has developed an exhaust system rattle and the shop says my muffler bearings are shot and need to be replaced. I really don't have the $385 to have this done, so is there a DIY for this? Also... my ride has been on the "mushy" side lately... shop says it's most likely due to stale...

    I'm in the middle of the dreaded rear wheel bearing DIY (I know, bad decision) and am unable to get the rear hub off. I've seen the very helpful TeamDFL DIY, but haven't experienced the same rear hub "miracle". I've tried a slide hammer and some prying from behind but it doesn't seem to be...
