    I’ve been going in circles trying to figure out why I’m getting a driveline vibration on my 2002 325i wagon. The vibration appeared after I did some maintenance on the car and now can’t seem to figure out if something was installed incorrectly or if I’ve got a run of bad parts. Here’s what I’ve...

    Hey guys, I'm having driveline issues with e46 320i that I think might be my DMF on its way out but after looking at symptoms online that other people have had, I'm not completely sure. The most noticeable issue I'm having is my car gets very lurchy in first and second gear if I'm not really...

    Have started to notice a low frequency vibration that I can hear more so than feel, MOST prevalent at 75mph to about 80mph. It's extremely noticeable on smooth road, but pretty noticeable as long as it's not an awfully paved road. I've replaced the entire driveshaft, flex disc, CSB a little...

    So I was going about 70Mph around a bend on the freeway a few weeks ago, and I felt something "let loose" in the driveline. I held the throttle as neutral as possible for the next 10 miles until my exit, and as I slowed down on the ramp, at perhaps 5-10Mph something "siezed" and the car stopped...

    Hello all, I've searched a bunch of threads on the forum regarding driveline noises and knocking, but I've hit a dead end. Some context: A couple of months ago my E46 318d started banging / knocking a little bit under heavy acceleration in first and second gear, or when gently accelerating...
  6. DIY: Do It Yourself
    Hello, I have been chasing a vibration issue in what I suspect to be my driveline that occurs between approximately 35-45 mph. The vibration is independent of gear selection and engine speed, hence my suspicion that the culprit lies behind the transmission output shaft. Pertinent information...

    first post is a beauty - here goes 2002 330i sport 5 speed - 62K - had a slight growl over the summer - almost just too much engine noise. After 300 miles on track, a poor idle fixed by cleaning the ICV, then a rattle at idle that turned out to be the bracket from the gearbox to the exhaust -...

    I have a '04 325i with a vibration issue this started about two weeks ago. The entire vehicle had a vibration that was severe enough that it would shake the change in the center console. This occurred from about 20mph - 27/28mph. I replaced & balanced all four tires, the center support...
