    Hi there, I wonder if anyone can help me please... Two things which I've never been able to fathom on my 3 series. 1) The drive mode defaults to 'Comfort'. Is there a way to get it to default to something else, e.g. Sport+, Eco etc? Without having to manually change it every time... 2) Every...

    Hi there. I have bought recently a 330ci (2001) and the air con was not working, no cold air... I bought a can and regulator to regas the system yesterday and when done it did not make a difference... I have checked the compressor and it spins. I can notice a hissing sound inside the car when...

    Hi, I have asked on another Forum (unfortunately without much success), so I'm hoping someone on here might know! Following a recent service including coolant change, I've noticed that whenever the air con is switched on, the fan comes on and off at regular intervals (maybe 10 seconds on, 10...

    Hello! I currently have a 2005 E46 320d Touring Sport that I got from a family member as a spare car. In honesty I wasn't expecting too much as it's covered over 170,000 miles, but it drives superbly and the engine seems great too. Unfortunately there is a problem relating to the air con...

    Hi guys, I'm new to BMWs so any help is appreciated. My air con was not producing cold air when I bought it so I decided to try a regas first as it's the cheapest option. Made the air con cold for all of two weeks! The air con has gone back to being warm. What are the best things to check...

    Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and new to BMW as a whole. I'm currently looking at the M235i / M240i trying to decide which one to get, I've come across an M235i that has everything I want (I can't find electric seats on most of these damn cars!! but this one has it!!) however, one thing...

    Hi I am trying to recharge my air con on my BMW F32. Can someone tell me where the F32 low pressure air con recharge point is located? I have found what I think is the high pressure connection to the right of the engine bay with a black cap on. My air con gas recharge connector will not fit...

    Some advice gratefully received: I have a 435D, probably one of the best cars I've had! And the A/C has just stopped working, 2 months out of warranty... grrr. So, I've paid the £90 to find out the condenser has failed (not due to damage) but the dealer has requested a BMW contribution...

    Hey guys, All the refrigerant has leaked out from the air con system (was not blowing cold air), took it to the garage and they have told me there is a leak on the pipe. Not sure what is the cheapest option to resolve this issue: 1) Buy a splice lock air con pipe repair kit -...

    I did a lot of research online and people suggested to change the valve cover gasket. It has been about a week now and still noticed smoke coming into the cabin from time to time. I have noticed that smoke only comes in when I have stopped (not straight away when engine is started). After...

    So the snowflake button does naff all. The revs don't change and nothing kicks in. Yes I have rotated the vent output to the 3 blue dots etc. So, of the small amount of reading I've done, it seems that I should have it charged first as if it doesn't have enough gas it won't fire up at all? is...

    Has anyone bought a new TYC pusher fan, I need to replace mine but not sure whether to go for something a bit dearer.

    So if I switch the air con on, it blows fuse #63 after a few minutes and wipes out the whole climate control heater unit on the dash until I replace the fuse. I've seen a few posts pointing towards the wires coming from the Air Con clutch, or the fact that it might be the aircon clutch itself...

    It's started taking quite a while to get any heat going in the car. It seems to get warmer when I'm going faster. Does this ring any bells to anyone? Oh, and Merry Christmas while I'm on. Roy.

    Since I’ve had my car (may this year) I’ve just kept the automatic climate control switched on. I do that with all my cars as I like not needing to faff with the heating controls, fan speed and direction. But I have noticed that when you activate auto mode the air con also comes on which up to...
