    Hi, Im a bit stumped by a fault with both front windows on my 1997 323i convertible. Both front windows don't go up or down at all. This also means they don't drop and raise when opening and closing the doors. The rear windows work fine as does everything else on the car. I have scanned the...

  6. 1997 E36 316i - Power steering leak

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    As far as I can tell, the leak is coming from the 2 hoses: the fluid is leaking just above where it's clamped i.e. from where the hoses go into the PAS resevoir housing. The fluid then just drips down the pipe - it's not gushing out but over a few days it covers the hose. I don't see any cracks...

  9. 1997 E36 316i - Can you identify this part?

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    It seems to be a support bar, just behind the sump, running across the car, with two huge bolts holding it in place, one on each side. I can't find it any diagram unless I'm looking in the wrong place. I need to know the part number of the 2 bolts that hold it in place. Thanks
  10. 1997 E36 cabriolet top storage cover not fully closing

    General BMW Discussions
    Hi Guys The top storage cover is not fully closing because some of the hood material does not fully detract into the storage area. Some of the material rests on the back behind the rear headrests and, consequently, the top cover does not fit snuggly down. Is there any adjustment that would...
  11. 1997 e36 316i - oil filter rubber seals

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Just want to double-check that when I replace the oil filter, the only rubber seal I use is the large one that goes on the screw in cap? With the filter I also got a couple of small rubber seals and I tend not to use those. Am I supposed to use them? This diagram seems to show them...
