  1. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hello all, Bit of an odd one for you. My 328 seems to have a lot of drag somewhere when the clutch is engaged. And I don't just mean the usual engine braking. It's in all gears including 5th at low RPMs. It doesn't drag when the clutch is disengaged. Anyone got any idea where to start with...

    Brake pads, brake discs: either replace the brake pads or discs, pairs fo replacement must be done, a single replacement brake pads or discs, will exacerbate the new brake pads or rapid wear of the brakes, and the brake will cause jitter which affect driving safety. Check the brake fluid: Most...

    I have had a problem with pulling to the offside under heavy braking. I had the vehicle on a rolling road and it displayed front OS 30% higher than front NS. I have now changed the front callipers, flexes, discs and pads. Rear discs and pads also as worn. The fluid has been changed as well. The...

    Hi guys got one here to pickle your brains. I've searched everywhere I possibly can and come up at a loose end every time. I'm lucky enough to have a few friends that are mechanics, I've called on them all and no joy. I have a E92 330D M sport Manual Bought it and didn't really test drive...

    I have a 2004 325i E46 and when I apply the brakes the engines surges between 1000 and 1500 RPMs. I disconnected the vacuum line to the power booster but it continues to surge...Any ideas as to what it could be?

    Hi all - I was driving yesterday and had to perform an emergency stop - however when I did I noticed the Traction Control light, ABS light and Brake light came on at the same time and then went off. It hasn't happened since however I haven't applied the brakes as hard since. Any ideas what this...

    Hi everyone, I have just bought an S reg 323i automatic with 90,000 on the clock. It has been kept garaged and very well looked after by the previous owner, mainly by our local BMW specialist, with no expense spared. I paid £1400 for it. I'm going to hopefully put 30,000 miles on it this year...

    Hi, my 320d E46 2004, feels very uncomfortable especially when braking. The car has new tyres (Firestone) and the 4 wheel tracking aligned, has covered 187k but is lovely to drive and very reliable. I would rather keep this car but it feels very unsafe when driving on B roads especially. When I...

    My car has been doing this for a while now and I'm starting to wonder what it is. If the car is cold and I accelerate in 1st or 2nd, up to say 1500 or 2000 revs, then release the accelerator there's a big clunk as the car slows which sometimes feels like it bounces through the driveline. Once...

    Hello, After parking the car for about 30 mins last night, I came back to find the brake pedal difficult to press and lost almost all braking power. Vacuum pump? brake booster? Low fluid? Help!

    I have the above issue, which is throwing me a little bit, I can't figure it out. Usually pulling to one side is easy, sticky caliper, but the fact when I let off it pulls to the other I don't understand. Had the car tracked, and double checked, tyre pressures ok, and changed wishbone bushes to...

    Hi, I get a violent shaking from braking hard when over 60mph. I first thought discs etc - but this actually tried to rip the wheel out of my hands. Could it be 'too low' and this the wheels catches the insides of the front arches on the hard braking? If so, does anybody know how...

    Over the past couple a weeks a small thud or knock has occurred under braking and accelerating, most noticeable at about 20mph in stop/start traffic. You can hear it but also feel it through the left foot rest peddle. At first I thought it was something shifting back and forth in the boot but...

    Hello, I have this annoying shudder when braking which comes through the steering wheel and not the pedal if i briefly let go of the steering wheel i can see it move slightly side to side and i've also noticed that the driver side wheel and caliper is absolutely caked in brake dust when the...

    I currently have red stuff pads and (presumably) OEM discs. I can't afford a big brake kit but I may be able to stretch to new pads and discs since I'll have to do them at some point anyway. What pad and disc combo give maximum stopping power whilst maintaining suitability for street use? I...
