    Hey guys, I just bought a 2001 320ci manual and it clunk's whenever you change gears or go on and off the throttle hard. You can drive the car smoothly and it makes no sound. Today I looked under it and told my brother to brake and release clutch to see if the bushing of the differential were...

    Nice to meet everybody! TLDR: I currently drive a 2005 330CI zhp. Had a wavetrac LSD installed recently and a month later, I started feeling driveline wobble/oscillation. I bought a brand new wavetrac LSD in june 2022 and had a reputable performance BMW shop install it into a used 3.38 diff...

    After rebuilding my transmission, I decided to replace the shifter/bushings together. I was between two shifters on FCP, but decided going with BMW part #25117528881 (curved lever) instead of #25117543187 (straight lever) because it looked more like my shifter that came out of the car. When I...

    Hi all, please could someone tell me the part number for the E46 330Ci manual (2005) UK driveshaft? I have two small cracks in the CV joint housing. Is it possible to replace just the CV joint or is a new driveshaft required?

    If I've snapped one driveshaft am I better buying one or replacing both?

    The torque value for the driveshaft clamping sleeve is 89 in-lbs, but I am using a (big) crows foot to tighten this with a torque wrench. Thus, I calculate that the torque wrench needs to be set at 70 in-lbs in order to achieve 89 in-lbs torque on the clamp sleeve itself. Am I overthinking...

    I am currently trying to sort out all of my drivetrain vibrations in my project 325iT. I am looking for suggestions on where to start in terms of what to replace and what to look out for. My first issue is some substantial vibration with the car in gear, it vibrates significantly and even...

    Im new to this forum, and have been struggling to fina a fix for this issue (if there even is one) When I am driving slowly at low rpms and push the clutch in to shift to a gear, the clutch makes a noise when I release it. I can feel the vibration in the middle of the car, and the sound is a...

    I have a 2005 325xi automatic and when i go from park to reverse or reverse to drive and also sometimes when letting off the gas then reapplying it i hear a clunk/thud from under the car, the rear diff bushing and subframe bushings dont look the best but when i recorded under the car it didnt...

    Hello everyone, i have a 2005 E46 M3 which i installed on the turner motor sport subframe reinforcement kit, i also have changed my differential bushes, RTAB and subframe bushes. At the first test drive the drive shaft was broken and hit the body hardly which cause the airbag to deploy. Got a...

    Hey guys. So I recently got a used trans from a 2005 330cic 6 speed manual for my 2004 325ci automatic. When I went to install it, the trans fit perfectly but when it got to the driveshaft I noticed that the first half of the drive shaft (which was the only thing I got sent for buyer) didn’t...
  16. E46 Introductions
    So I’m new hear but have been using the site for a good 5 years now! I have a 03 330i with the Zhp package but I swapped the auto for the 5 speed out of my 99 330! I started getting a vibration that I thought might have been from the rear passenger tire. The car sat for a couple months when the...

    Told you I'd be back with another problem! Already done so much to this car to get it in good condition so the list is definitely becoming rather short now however. I have a kind of knocking/grinding noise (more similar to knocking than grinding) that seems to be occurring at the rear right...

    So two or three weeks ago I started feeling a "rubber band feeling" when acclerating in high gears (4,5,6) at lower rpms and this was quickly followed by a violent shaking under acceleration in first and second gear. After a little bit of research I narrowed it down to the center support bearing...

    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...

    Last August I replaced the driveshaft guibo & csb, but still had nagging indeterminate driveline vibration issues (even after fixing sticking calipers and replacing a bent rim). Now, I removed the driveshaft again and it looks like I was off about 1 spline when I reassembled the 2 halves: the...
