  1. 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...

    Hi, Recently bought a 55 plate 116i. Seems to be running OK apart from it judders in 5th when going over a bump and low revs. Apart from that when I change low gears the clutch and throttle will occasionally stick at the biting point. As I lift the clutch and lower the throttle it's like...

    Hello everyone, I am new to these forums, and new to BMW's in general. My 320i e46 has developed this strange rubbing/grinding/catching noise. The thing is this only happens when the engine is up to full working temp AND if it is a warm day. My assumption is that it's a fan or a/c belt working...

    Hi guys, I've got MV1's and was worried about going from 30-35 profiles in case they caught on the arch.. and they don't, appart from under 'hard' cornering.

    I've been experiencing a funny noise and vibration from my steering wheel/column but only when 'giving it some' and particularly when throwing it round a corner. It makes the noise when going in a straight line, but if your trying to turn the wheel goes stiff. Sometime it will almost lock up...

    I have just become the proud owner of a 528i SE saloon and when I picked it up I noticed the Aircon Fan was fowling on the grill.

    Hi all can anyone advise why when raising the hood the rear rising cover is struck by the rear soft top hoop as it falls back into the recess? Seems the cover does not raise fully? Any hydraulics to top up? Roy1
