  1. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hey guys. I have a 1997 323i manual and got some problems with it. There was quite a bit of condensation coming out of the exhaust, so I changed the spark plugs, ignition coils, oil and filter. Now the problem is, the condensation is not a small amount. And it doesn't always go away when the...

    Hey guys, Just a post about condensation. As you can see both my fog light and headlamp on the driver side both have condensation inside. Not sure how or why this happened all of a sudden, it was fine a few weeks ago. Does anyone know any way to permanently remove this? Tried a hairdryer to...

    I think I’m having a condensation-based issue with my E46 330ci. I’m noticing a cream sludge build up on the oil filler cap, which has recently spread to a very small build up on the dipstick too. (alarm bells ringing..) During the week I commute 4.5 miles to work, so although the coolant...

    Folks, I had ridiculously annoying rattle/noise coming from what I thought was the Rear View Mirror, I started to remove it to investigate firstly taking the 2 piece surround off and have found the Condensation/Fog Sensor has detached from the screen, this must have been the cause of the noise...

    So both fog light units condensed up and it looks a bit pants to say the least! I've dried them out with a hair dryer (not mine, obviously :D) but they've condensed up again. How is everyone addressing this? I've looked at second hand units on evil-bay but there's no guarantee it'll happen to...

Any idea what could be the cause and how to get rid of ? I remember that when I bought my car in manchester and...

    I hadn't noticed any condensation but it came up as an advisory on the MOT: Our headlights are not sealed, they have passages that allow airflow - the problem is that the lights are rarely used in the summer and condensation slowly build up. Fortunately, getting rid of the condensation is...

    Recently I noticed that when I put my climate control onto Auto the fan would run at a really high speed for a couple of minutes before slowing down. It was less obvious when the Air Con was on. This was annoying and embarrassing with passengers as it was really loud. After some investigation I...
