  1. 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...

    Driving yesterday I noticed my steering wheel shaking at about 60 mph. I thought maybe an alignment was in order, however out of nowhere I began to hear thumping from the car... thought at first maybe something got into my tire, or maybe one of the plastic underside panels came loose and it...

    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 took my car in to a shop to have the flex disc and centre bearing changed, but when i got it back, there is an annoying clicking noise whenever I come off the gas. Had a quick look under at the flex disc and am i right in thinking its been installed incorrectly?? Are the arrows not meant...

    Hey guys! This is probably my happiest post on here since this will be my final repair to a completely sound car (shhh, don't mention VANOS seals. That's my summer project)! I have a fear of being under my car...with my current tools, so to avoid the fear and any snags I'd reach along the way...
  6. DIY: Do It Yourself
    So after hearing great reviews of using the e60 shifter as a budget ssk, I did that while I installed a shifter refresh kit. Everything buttoned up nice and seemed to work well. I have an 2001 330Ci with 230K so the original was pretty loose. Naturally it all felt better after the refresh and...

    Ok guys, I am looking for some help diagnosing an issue I have on my car. I have a 2005 330i ZHP with 135k miles. While driving on the interstate, the steering wheel has a little bit of play in it, but the main problem is that the tires seem to catch or pull when going over any bumps or even a...

    I have been noticing some play (maybe 1")in my steering wheel and some vibration. I have some slightly bent rims and I think that is causing the vibration. Everything I've read makes the play seem like the steering coupler/guibo. My question is, how long should a replacement steering coupler...
  9. 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...

    I've change my flex disk 4 times since January. I just changed it 2 days ago and I see signs of it splitting. The flex disk is made by Dorman part # 935-101. I've change my motor mounts, tranny mounts rear differential bushings, the differential but the flex disk still fails. Could it just be...

    Do you get a nasty "clunk" when you try to accelerate? Do you have vibrations under acceleration? When you inspect your Guibo does it resemble a frayed tire cord? Well then it might be time for a new Guibo. The guibo serves as an interface between the transmission and the drive shaft...

    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...
