  1. E46 Touring
    Hey guys, I just joined. Tried searching to no avail. I got an e46 Touring and the retractable roll-up cargo cover is crooked. When it's retracted you can clearly see the left edge is lower than the right, and when it's extended you can clearly see more tension on the right edge while the left...

    Gasket is replaced so thats good. While reinstalling I sheared the center stud in the front. (Pic 1) Nearest BMW shop is 65 miles away so can I get away with driving it with it missing? If Not can I seal it with RTV and drive it? Second this little brittle tube next to O2 sensors decided to snap...

    Was wondering if anyone knew why their is no cover for the sun roof. I hope this makes sense. What I mean is that you can always see the glass their is no cloth to pull over it inside the car. I'm not sure if this is only my car or everyones.

    Okay guys so I had a look under my hood the other day and noticed that my plastic engine cover (is there a real name for this guy?) was cracked. So naturally I ran out to Home Depot and got some sticky stuff to fix it up all nice. Here goes. You can see the crack here where the oil cap screws...

    Hey guys, I was doing some interior detailing for my car and I noticed how bad the Seatbelt locks would rub up against the center console. I'm wondering if any of you know where I would find something similar to the CSL's Protection. Thanks.

    Hey guys, I had to replace my starter in my 325i M54 engine and it sucked!! But I got it taken care of after removing the intake manifold, fuel rail and a bunch of stuff. Anyways, now that I have put the intake back on, the plastic cover won't fit on the fuel rail! it looks like it is about a...

    Hello all, I have searched but to no avail have I found any information on our website about the Tarpaulin Cover. The part number for this cover is 82110027059. For those of you who do not know what it is, it is a cover that you put just over the cabin of the car when the top is down. The...

    Hey, I replaced the vanos seals but when tightening the vanos cylinder cover bolts I broke 2 of them. :banghead: I guess I have a faulty torque wrench. I need to know the parts number for the bolts. Please help!

    I have a bmw e46 320i wagon (Australian market). The clips that hold the carpeted trim that covers both the CD stacker and the battery either side in the trunk / boot dont hold up anymore and both panels fall out everytime you turn a corner. I have a spring and a small piece of plastic (flat...

    Filling up yesterday and I go to push the fuel cover in so it pops out to reveal the fuel cap, but it simply clicked in, then would not unlock. Luckily i checked around the car and found the manual release in the boot and opened it that way. When i filled up and closed the cover it clicked in...

    I have searched and cannot find information on the springs that pull the small cover inserts for my convertible top tonneau cover. I have a 325Cic and the small covers do not move to cover where the convertible top frame was when the top was up. It appears that some type of spring would pull the...

    OK, a couple of weeks ago I started to experience a new rattle from the rear of my vert. I did many searches here and thought it might be the magnet on the subwoofer door...nope. I have noticed that when I put the top down, the hard cover is not latching down completely on the passenger side. I...

    Changed my turn signal bulbs this weekend and apparently didn't fit the light stalk securely back into place. Then it rained yesterday and now there is moisture in the headlight. :eek: Can I remove the plastic front cover/lens to dry it out? I'm hoping there are clips I can release and it'll...
