    I recently noticed that I have a loud squeal from a cold start on my 2001 330xi. I messed up swapping in a new coolant reservoir and got coolant on my belts, possibly could be related to that. Loud squeal on start but when warm it is way quieter but still there.

    Hey guys, long-time lurker. I know I don't post much, but I'm looking for some major help here. What I believe is my tensioner pulley fell out/broke off of my car and took a piece of whatever mounted it with it. I am wondering if it was connected to another part that can be replaced, such as a...

    I had my computer scanned for codes today because the airbag light came on. I've attached a pic of what it said. I was able to clear the top two codes, but the bottom one just came right back on the screen. The only light that's on is the red airbag symbol, nothing else, no check engine or...

    How do you R&R the Hydraulic A/C tensioner pulley. I got the part (#11281748131) from the dealer and went to replace but couldn't get the old one off. After removing the dust-cap, I wrenched on the nut with a torx bit. When I turn it clock-wise it loosens the tension but should I turn it...
