  1. 1997 840 Headlight Dipped Beam not working , relay?

    BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    Bolts with red paint on usualy means 'don't touch - safety critical'!
  2. 650i Engine idle problem error code

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Yes, that's most likely a vacuum leak - possibly at the PCV's - more info below: Finding vacuum leaks with INPA How to replace PCV valves
  3. 1997 840 Headlight Dipped Beam not working , relay?

    BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    Yes, behind the glovebox although (I think) you reach it from underneath by removing the passenger kick-panel
  4. 1997 840 Headlight Dipped Beam not working , relay?

    BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    I have not had one open, there's possibly relays in there or switching transistors. As long as you can get an LKM from the right year and model no coding needs to be done. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  5. Wheels

    Have a read of this - all your questions are answered: https://www.meeknet.co.uk/e31/Timms_bmw_wheel_and_tyre_page.htm
  6. 630i timing chain (vanos) errors

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Fortunately, timing chains don't cause an intermittent problem - if they are stretched they stay stretched and don't magically shrink the next day! You may have a Vanos control problem as these are reasonably common caused by leaking o-rings - but we would need to know the error codes otherwise...
  7. 1997 840 Headlight Dipped Beam not working , relay?

    BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    There's no low-beam relay, just the light-switch and then the LKM followed by fuses 10 and 11. So, next plan would be to check your bulbs!
  8. brake master cylinder bolts

    BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    Safety-critical part I would guess!
  9. 1991 E31 850i Braking System FAULT/ PROBLEM

    BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    The cause is the master cylinder - we've seen this a few times now.
  10. 2011 BMW 640d

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    That's quite normal - your rear wheels are losing traction and the DSC system is reducing power - as it says, drive more moderately or get some decent rear tyres!
  11. 650i throttle body plug

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    That's great news! 550 quid is a lot better than £12k!
  12. 650i throttle body plug

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Sounds like you are on the right track - and BMW is quite aware of the problem!
  13. 2015 BMW 640D GC, Drivetrain malfunction

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    No, they will not change gearbox fluid on a standard service - get an independant to replace filters, selas (as above) and fluid.
  14. 2015 BMW 640D GC, Drivetrain malfunction

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    You haven't mentioned a gearbox oil and filter change which I would have thought be more pertinent to your problems. At the same times the mechactronic seals should be changed as they have an affect on the gear changes as described here...
  15. Sunroof Cloth Coming Off

    BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    Unfortunately this has been a standard problem with BMW's from the E32 up to the E39 - the orange stuff just crumbles to bits and the cloth becomes detached. The only way to repair is to scrape off all the orange stuff and start again. The orange stuff really doesn't want to come off though -...
  16. 650i throttle body plug

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    I feel this is going to be a cheap repair coming up!
  17. E64 650i Convertible front chassis vibrations

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Explain what the vibration is like - does it shake the steering wheel left and right? Or does the whole car shake?
  18. 650i throttle body plug

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Don't start buying replacement parts until after a thorough investigation!
  19. 650i throttle body plug

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    That's rotten news - but seems rather far-fetched - oil is an insulator and the main computer box (E-Box) is very well insulated from the rest of the looms. I think I would have a good poke around the E-Box modules (with the battery disconnected) just to see for myself. Access is shown here:
  20. BMW 645CI Coupe 3rd brake light failure

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    There's no separate fuse, and it is an LED, not sure what the failure mode would be, if it were an E31 then the wiring at the boot hinge would be the problem.
