  1. 2006 E87 118d - Accelerator pedal catches at the top

    BMW 1 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 1 Series
    I've been noticing that whenever I change gear, as I release the accelerator pedal and reapply, it feels like it catches on something momentarily at the top. It only ever happens when changing gear. I called my local specialist and they think it might be the ABS sensor rings and was quoted £300...
  2. 430d whining noise when tapping accelerator

    BMW 4 Series - Tech Talk F32,F33,F36,F82,F83
    Has anyone else experienced a whining noise when tapping the accelerator. I have a 430d on a 64 plate. The dealer replaced the air box and now says the noise is normal for that car but it sounds like two marbles rubbing against each other. It starts when the engine is hot and you can hear it...
  3. F22 rubber brake and accelerator pedal replacement

    BMW 2 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW F22
    Purchased on eBay for about £25, not that hard to fit just a bit tricky, I would class myself as a novice at fitting after market products. £25 well spent

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Collected my 328 on Tuesday and the first thing i noticed was how stiff the accelerator pedal was, it was like pushing on a brick lol also seems as if the throttle is sticking as the revs don't drop when you go to change gear, even after a 4 and a half hour journey back home it was still pretty...

  7. E90 318d Msport wobble throughout the car when accelerator let off

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hi I own a 2010 318d and it has recently began to wobble when I let off the accelerator but only when I am doing around 70mph. Sometimes the wobble is barely noticeable and then other times it feels quite violent as if the wheels are ready to fall off. Any ideas of what this could be ???

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
