  6. Finally a complete solution to run 135i front Brembo calipers on an e46

    Suspension & Braking
    There seems to have been lots of talk over the years about how the 135i Brembo calipers sort of fit the e46. Unfortunately running a 135i Brembo on an E46 results in the front pad hanging off of the back of the rotor by a few mm's. Excuse my terrible junkyard pads used for test fitting but here...
  7. Is this caliper piston OK or should I go new?

    DIY: Do It Yourself
    I am rebuilding my calipers and the attached image is of one of the pistons. Overall it is in great shape except for the edge near the end of the dust boot. I expect that since it's near the outer edge it should be fine but looking for some confirmation from the forum. I really don't want to...
  8. Brake sticking. Tried something, not sure where to go from here.

    Suspension & Braking
    I have a 2003 325xi and the right front brake is sticking. The car always pulls right and when I brake it always pulls me to the left. The wheel is very hot after driving only on the right, so I know it's sticking. Today, I just took off the caliper and checked everything out. The brakes where...

  13. Knocking/clicking sound coming from right wheel

    General E46 Forum
    I recently put some brake pad grease on my pads to prevent some squeaking. The pads and rotors are both relatively new, and don't need replacing. Now I am noticing a knocking/clicking sound coming from my front right wheel. At first it sounded like a rock stuck in my tire, then almost like a...
  14. Seized Front Caliper... Why?!?!

    Suspension & Braking
    Hi all, Today while driving home, my car was acting unhappy. The steering wheel was shaking proportional to speed. Annoyed by this, I went under the car when I got home. What I found was that the left front wheel was considerably hotter than the right. Moreover, when I put the front in the...
  15. Vibration in Rear at 35-40+

    General E46 Forum
    Hey guys, quick question, want your thoughts. I have a vibration and wobble (wobwobwobwob) in the right rear that starts at 35 mph, gets pretty bad at 40 (real bad if I bring it up to 45 and then coast it back down to 35), increases in pitch as you get faster, taken it up to 70+ and it never...
  16. Would This be too RIC3R?

    General E46 Forum
    So, my calipers are stock... which means they are the color of RUST!!:eek: I want to clean and paint them, but a little unsure about color. I kinda want them silver, but every keeps telling me to paint them blue (BMW roundel color). I think it would look a little Ric3r.:hmm: (Also, my rims are...

  18. Weird noise / vibration from front right wheel...HELP!

  19. Beyern Mesh caliper clearance?

    Tire & Wheel Forum
    I have a 2002 330i sedan. I recently put on Beyern Mesh 255/35/18's on rear (9.5), and 225/40/18's on front (8.5). The offset on rears is 45. I noticed when I mounted them that the clearance between the inside of the rear wheel and the brake caliper is REALLY close. Like a sheet of paper...
  20. Brake Caliper Fix

    DIY: Do It Yourself
    I replaced the black rubber bushings for the guide pins on my rear calipers. Does anyone know if I am supposed to lube the inside and outside of these bushings or if I should put an adhesive on the outside so that it sticks to the caliper and then lube the inside where the guide pin goes?
