    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...

    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...

    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...

    So I've had my 330i since the beginning of june. Since then I've done the cv joint, center bearing, driveshaft coupler/flex disc. In the 5 months, almost six that I've had it, ive replaced the carrier bearing 3 times. Going on 4. And I've replaced the flex disc 2 times. Is their a recommended...

    I replaced my clutch about 2 weeks ago. I detailed tips I thought worth sharing in a post to the thread Phildo's Clutch/Flywheel Tracker on this forum. I'm posting now because after the job I had added noise and vibration. My tires were pretty worn before the job, so although I had extra...

    I have a 2001 330ci manual 5 speed transmission with 105,000 miles. I notice when i am slowing down while in gear i feel a little shutter that will go away always if i go into neutral. If I downshift I don't think I notice it like i do if say in 3rd and i am slowing down to let the engine wind...

    Hi, I recently bought my first BMW and got very low knowledge about BMWs in general hence why I am here :) I just bought a differential from an automatic with the ratio 3,73 and mounted it onto my BMW. Now i need to make my driveshaft just a tiny bit longer and im quite confused. From what i...

    Bought an 04 330xi without really looking at it, drove it home and thought the reverberation was just the guibo as i had to replace that in my 325i before. Come to find out its the center support bearing. So had to cut the exhaust off after the manifold, someone else had previously done this...

    I have replaced several BMW "non serviceable u-joints. First get Moog 413 u-joints. Drop exhaust or lower enough to remove shaft. To seperate shaft halfs (in or out of car) use 15" crescent. (notice paint marks for alignment) To remove the joints it is easier to cut the cross with a torch and...

    I have an 02 325xi with 160,000 miles. I have knocking/thumping coming from the rear while accelerating, always occurring at 2500RPM. Took it into the shop, was told it is the rear U-joint failing. They quoted me ~1100$ out the door to replace the entire driveshaft. I haven't been able to find...
