    I am a seventeen year old and I know a decent amount about cars. I have a 2004 325i with the 5 speed. It just started this morning, when I shift into any gear, right before it catches it shaky and starts to smell like its burning almost. As hard as this may be to believe I HAVE NOT dropped the...

    Following the excellent DIY articles here and at pelicanparts.com, I'm halfway through a clutch replacement... but I've run into a dilemma. My 1999 328i sedan has just over 250,000 miles, so when the clutch pedal started vibrating and the clutch started shuddering, I wasn't surprised. Happy...

    I really hope this hasn't been brought up too many times, but this is my first post, so forgive. I've got an 01 325xi with over 100k miles on it, and its looking like the clutch needs to be replaced. As willing as I am to do the maint myself, I just don't have the time, experience, and have...

    Anyone ever run into this? It seems that the #11 bolt was broken off the bell housing by the previous owner or just wear and tear, and I cannot remove the transmission from the motor. Any ideas? Its one of the bolts that have to be removed from the top, or with a really long extension. I can...

    Hey guys, I could really use your help and advice. I recently moved to DC and left my car back home. My sister (who is inexperienced with manual cars) decided to take my car out. She barely knows how to drive a manual car, and learned on my car. I own a 2002 BMW 330cic. She told me while she...

    I'm having trouble getting the fan clutch back on the threads of my 2004 330Ci Convertible. It came of easily with the right tools, and I could spin the clutch slowly until it came off of the shaft. Then the fan, clutch and shroud came out together. Now I'm having trouble getting the clutch to...

    Alright, I have been without my car now for approximately one week and it's killing me! Last Friday, on a hot day I came outside after spending the morning volunteering and attempted to start my car to leave. When I pushed down the clutch pedal and turned the key, the car would not start. All...

    I recently purchased a UUC stage-2 lighted flywheel and organic clutch replacement for my BMW since it's about time to replace the vehicle's original unit. I called around to a local race prep shop here in Columbus, OH and was quoted at around $675 for labor and potential extra costs if...

    Hey Guys, I took my SMG M3 '03 to a local european repair shop today to replace my old brake pads with some Axxis brake pads I had found online. The specialist who drove my car in the shop mentioned a chuttering/bucking i'd been having in 1st gear for a couple of days now. I told him I was...

    Poll: how long did your previous clutch last? (6-speed, not smg) I know it varies based on a lot of factors. But I haven't been able to find even ballpark estimates for how long a clutch on the 6-speed (NON-SMG) will last. How many miles did you get on your previous clutch? I'm at 48,000 on...
