    General E46 Forum
    So this problem started a few weeks ago. When I turn the key, I hear one click and nothing else. I brought my 2 year old battery into Batteries Plus to get it tested and they said it was working like new. This lead me to believe that I have a bad starter. I understand that generally a bad...

The nose varies in speed with the throttle (while driving or while revving at a standstill). My best guess is that a pulley is causing this, as the...

    General E46 Forum
    After being on for a while my driver's side starts clicking when it hits the corner of the windshield. Does anybody know what is causing this? The blades are only a few months old and it doesn't rain very much where I livs. I really need some help.
