While removing the broken ends of the hard coolant pipes, a plastic piece fell off of the heater inlet pipe and into the cylinder head water jacket.

    Hi all, when my 330ci idles for about a minute it starts to go really rough and then starts misfiring, you can avoid it slipping into the misfire by holding revs at about 1k. So far I have replaced the following: MAF, intake boots, DISA valve, CCV diaphragm and hoses, Bank 1 sensor 1 o2 sensor...

I ordered #52108267507 from ECS two weeks ago and it finally came yesterday. I used pliers to take off what was left of the broken handle and now it seems...

    E46 325i 2001 Centre console door lock switch doesn't work when the car is off or the key is in the accessory or on position. It only works when the car is running. Is this normal, if so how do you unlock the doors from the inside without the key?

    Bare with me folks, I've scoured the threads looking for a solution and did not find anything helpful... so far. Here's where I'm at: I've been manually locking and unlocking my 2001 e46 convertible for some time because ALL of the auto/remote lock features haven't worked for years. The lock...

    I've had this car for about a year now and it's time to finally figure out what is wrong with my heated seats. I've checked the fuses so far and they are fine. When touching the buttons on both sides the lights all flash once and that is it. Any ideas before I start blindly buying parts? Here...

    Hi everyone... So, in the latest chapter of my oil pan repair fiasco, I sheared the very last fastener I was torquing in place :facepalm:. Not sure how that's possible with a torque wrench set to a whopping 10 Nm, but it happened. Anyway, for a variety of reasons, I can't wait till Tuesday to...

    Hey guys, so I drive a 2002 330ci. My door has stopped locking and I was wondering if any of you have had this happen. It still locked when I start driving, the keyless entry doesn't work (not a big deal), and when I put the key in the door to lock the car the key goes into the lock and just...

    So earlier last week I was driving to someones house and decided I want to listen to some music. However, I was too lazy to plug the aux cable into my phone and choose a song seeing as how this house was only a mile or two away. I decided to switch to the radio which I have not done in probably...

    Well the prospective thief was not successful, so now neither the mechanical nor electronic lock are working in my girlfriends 2004 325 CI vert.

    Yesterday I was repairing a ground for the trunk mounted tail lights. In order to do so I had to disconnect all the wiring in the trunk lid. I struggled with the connector that attaches to the lock cylinder and fear I could have damaged something. Now that I have put it all back together...
