  1. 2001 330i steering wobble

    General E46 Forum
    Recently after replacing the control arms and bushings as well as steering coupler my car has a weird twitch in steering. It drives straight most of the time but as soon as you hit a bump or imperfection it sends a vibration through the steering column and the wheel rocks back and forth. Most of...
  2. I bet you can't solve this: Need thinking outside the box

    General E46 Forum
    I know I know, I annoy myself with how much I talk about this, but I'm getting to the nitty gritty here. I have a high speed wobble that gets dramatically worse under braking that is accompanied by a horrid noise (only under braking). I have had a number of members look at my car in person, and...
  3. Steering Column Wobbly

    Suspension & Braking
    Hi all! I have searched high and low and not found what I am looking for, several threads with no response ect... Whilst very hard to explain I will have a go, in my car there is play in the steering wheel, not the usual left right when turning the wheel, but if you hold the wheel you can move...

  5. What can cause a Rotor to wobble and touch the inside of the Caliper Bracket?

    Suspension & Braking
    Just replaced my front Rotors, and Pads because I've been chasing a "womp-womp", and they where ready go in general. (New Rotors, and Pads are: Zimmerman Rotors, BMW Pads.) I've replaced the passenger side Bearing as part of my trouble shooting, and seem to have weeded out the noise on that...
  6. Steering Wobble

    General E46 Forum
    Hey I have looked at a few posts here and on other forums regarding this but I would like more opinions on this. I have an issue with steering in the 60-80 kph zone (35-50 mph zone). The wheel starts to wobble and shake a bit. I have had the wheels balanced and aligned and the problem still...
  7. Weird Movement and Feelings

    General E46 Forum
    Hello again, When I first purchased my 1999 E46 328i, it had a terrible wheel wobble and a above 80mph or so, the whole car would shake like it was going to fall apart. Brought it in and the dealer balanced all 4 wheels and did a full wheel alignment. All of the wheel wobble went away, and the...

  9. Vibration in Rear at 35-40+

    General E46 Forum
    Hey guys, quick question, want your thoughts. I have a vibration and wobble (wobwobwobwob) in the right rear that starts at 35 mph, gets pretty bad at 40 (real bad if I bring it up to 45 and then coast it back down to 35), increases in pitch as you get faster, taken it up to 70+ and it never...
  10. wobble

    General E46 Forum
    Hey folks, I'm hoping you can help diagnose a problem with my 2002 330xi. I had new axels and CABs done within the last year, so I hope it's neither of these. There is a sound coming from the front end, very much like the banging around Ive heard in other cars when the front struts were gone...
