  1. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    A while ago, not sure how long could be two years or so, I had the nearside rear wheel bearing changed. This year's MOT car failed due to excessive tread wear at inside of wheel, so bad that the outside edge looked great but virtually no tread at inside. I've been told that this is probably due...

    I have a 2002 E46 330 convertible, about to hit 200k miles and a load of dashboard lights came up. One of these was for the steering angle sensor, and I read somewhere that an alignment can sort it. So, went to a local place (they have a hunter machine) which was recommended (not a national...

    Hi All, Just done a fair bit of work on my car including dampers all round, drop links all round and 2 rear tyres. Dampers needed doing so ride has improved massively but I’m now finding that the car is now quite unstable at high speed, tram lining at lower speeds and very pointy at the front...

    Car has 20k miles on Odo. I just had alignment done as I changed rear Offside tyre (both rear tyres are matching now in tread and depth). The rear offside tyre had worn out a lot quicker than expected. Upon Hunter alignment, the tech took it for a test drive and noticed that the steering was...

    Hi, so I have a 2006 BMW 1-Series and have taken it into to a bmw specialist garage to get the tracking done. They said that they found the o/s/r top adjustable arm seized bush in the arm and that arm and bolt needs to be replaced. Quoted £350 for the job. Does this price sound reasonable?

    Hi Everyone, I'm having some trouble with my 2014, 4 series coupe. There is a lack of responsiveness & understeer in the car's steering. I've had tie rods & tie rod ends changed, multiple alignments & steering angle resets done from different garages, nothing changed. Front tyres were bald...

    Hi guys, New BMW owner here, looking for a bit of help! Need a bit of advice. Recently bought a 320D 2009 LCI, and the toe/camber on the rear end is quite far out. I noticed originally on the prior owners documents as he had confirmation and receipts from a previous attempt at retracking the...

    Hi all, E60 535D LCI, Recently replaced front struts, springs and tension struts (not just bushes). Not sure what's exactly happening here but Ive followed correct procedures and torqued with wheels on the ground but the drivers side bush will not sit properly? Thought it was a faulty bush so...

    I'm wondering if anyone can help. Car broke down last week due to a faulty throttle body and had to have it recovered. I took off the car battery to charge it. Took off and cleaned the inlet manifold and replace the throttle body. The car won't start but it cranks (appears to be fuel related...

    Ok so I recently brought a 2002 e46 318i (2.0 Petrol) I brought it fairly cheap knowing that there would be a problem with it, and straight away found out it had the old chain tensioner and that the guide had already snapped, along with a dodger crankshaft sensor made the car a little annoying...

    Hi everyone, first post - new owner of a 2015 430d GC. Loving the car but noticed the steering wheel was always off to the right (towards 1 o'clock) when driving in a straight line. It doesn't pull, just sits off centre, and I'm OCD about these things. Thought I'd try the tracking first and the...
  15. Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    I've only had the car for a few weeks but I knew that the front tyres required replacement (the previous owner priced it accordingly) My front tyres were quite badly/unevenly worn on the outside edge (16" runflats) so I took the car to ATS who have said the alignment is out but the 'camber'...

    Hi guys I’ve just had 4 new tyres fitted and went to go get my alignment done today which was way out I have an e90 lci 335d Unfortunately It couldn’t be done because my front track rod ends were seized as were the rear toe adjusters. I was advised to ideally get the front track rods changed...

    Had my wheel alignment checked yesterday after getting strange feedback through the steering wheel. Glad I did because it was all over the place. Defiantly worth doing and should help with tyre wear Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Hi all... A few months ago I got the dreaded brake/handbrake warning symbols and got diagnosed with DTC pump problems, I had the pump replaced and all seemed well...for about 10 miles then the same warning lights reappeared. I took it back to my local garage and the computer read that the new...

    Sorry - not a major issue but the s/w on my new F31 m sport doesn't sit plumb regardless of road crown/camber. It's not out by much. It's booked in next week to have the tracking checked which will take 2 hours apparently (no charge). I didn't ask for this but just for the s/w to be adjusted...

    Hello, So ive booked car in for an alignment on Monday but the guy at the shop said it would be best if all the tyres had the same amount of tread. He goes if the rear right is low then the front left wheel will be out of spec and vice versa etc. Honestly, i fail to understand how tyre tread...
