    I have an 2002 325XI automatic with 147,000 miles. I just bought the car and the previous owner put new bmw rear shocks and springs on the car. Now the problem is whenever I hit the smallest or the biggest bump I get a very noticeable clunk/rattling noise from the rear end of the car. it is very...

    Hi Guys, I have brought an 2001 Facelift 330i Sport Sedan cheaply as it has an engine problem. I was planning on using the parts on my 323i (running gear, bumpers etc) but the car seems too nice to break, especially if its not a serious problem and an easy-ish fix. I have searched and searched...

    Hey Everyone, Here are the sounds: https://youtu.be/JPjIbpRcaUs I looked around for a similar sound on youtube and didn't find any that were close. As you can tell from the video, there's also a new squeal that's pretty loud. The rattle has been happening for a few months now, the BMW part...
  4. DIY: Do It Yourself
    Just noticed today in the rain that my 330xi with 80,000mi started making some squealing noises in the rain. Looking closer it sounds like I have some belts and pulleys to replace. As someone who has done brakes and some light wrenching is this something I can tackle in an afternoon myself...

    Thought this may be a helpful guide, I took from AutohausAZ BMW Noise Troubleshooting: Troubleshooting Noises (Is Your BMW Trying to Tell You Something?) Troubleshooting those weird noises coming from your BMW can help you determine needed repairs. It's important that you listen to what your...

    I have a 2000 323ci I just changed the oil pan and gasket because the original one cracked. So my car didn't have oil for about two a weeks (obviously not being driven).

    Hi everyone, i have a 2008 bmw328i, today when I started the car it turn right off. After restarting, no further issues with start up.

    car: 2000 BMW 328i So I searched around for other threads/people with this brake noise and nothing seemed to fit this description. BRAKE and ABS lights will come on every once and a while at random times, no change in performance though. When car is close to being fully stopped brakes make...
  10. General E46 Forum
    I’m experiencing multiple problems with my 2004 325I and I would like to get some opinions before taking it to the shop. Sorry for the long post. Problem 1: I have seen similar symptoms on in the forum but always with manuals and not automatics. While cruising at highway speeds, if I...
  11. Suspension & Braking
    I just installed bilstein sport shocks and H&R sport springs and now I have this clanking noise that seems to come from the right passenger side. Are there any common things it could be? I'm gonna get in there and make sure the sway bar link is tight tonight, but after that the only thing I...
