I had an issue on my E88 where the heater blower was making a grinding noise (sounded like a motorbike on low speed). Decided just to replace it with a spare from eBay.
Installed it today and the noise has gone :thumbsup
However.... now I am getting the same speed from the blower...

My driver side door has suddenly stopped closing correctly. It closes and locks but it's only half closed if that makes sense. It's like when you close a car door but don't close it hard enough. I suspect it is the exterior door handle because when I raise the exterior door handle it takes two...
I've owned an e90 since April and previously owned an e36 some years back, so i am aware of how BMW's air blend works (hopefully), after much fiddling i seem unable to get cool air to come out the front vents.
If i set the climate to full heat, or at say 20c to 21c on a cold morning...
I thought this guide may come in handy for anybody looking at delving into the world of detailing.
We've recently completed a very in depth guide about Clay bars. We have covered how to use one, how they work and why you should use one. We feel that making sure your paintwork is in...
Hello all,. Does anyone have Side View cameras fitted and are they giving you the image you expected?
The exit from my driveway is blind, so the Side View Camera option seemed a very useful solution to the problem. Searches on Google presented me various images which showed a 90 degree view to...
I just had new discs and pads fitted all round. They are Black Diamond discs and Red Stuff pads. Anyhow the front pads on the vehicle status screen are showing 49,000 miles but the back are at 8,000 miles. How can I set the back breaks to a more correct estimate fur replacement?
My first post, so please be gentle with me ;)
I have recently acquired a 2010 E63 635d and the wipers do not park properly.
This is intermittent.. sometimes they park fine.
I've searched the web, including various forums and while I can find a number of posts pointing to the wiper relay...
BMW E63 and E64 Fitting a CTEK Battery Tender in the Boot
Just look at the picture below - it looks like it was made to fit in there!
We all know that you can’t charge the battery from the boot (trunk) because this bypasses the IBS (Intelligent Battery Sensor) and the IBS will not ‘see’ the...

On my 330 CI the rear bumber on the passenger side near the arch does not seem to be fitted correctly. There is a larger gap on this side to.
IF you look at the picture you can see the bumper is sitting below some sort of clip. Is it easy to remove just this side of the bumber and...
I have this fitted on my e91, with xenons.
I have read the manual many times, but cannot work it out.
In the config, you tick the box which says "daytime running lights"
Then you place the light switch on auto.
Then what is meant to happen?
I thought it would as follows:
Had my E46 330 ci sport at the local BMW dealer for the passenger Airbag recall. They did a health check and apparently the Front Coil springs have not been fitted correctly when someone in the past
had changed the Shocks. They quoted me approximately £160 + maybe £10 worth of Bolts to...
Can someone shed a light on this please?

I'm just wondering if the full dual zone auto-recirculate climate systems are designed to do this. Although the principle is sound (cold air is denser and sinks, visa versa for hot air), in practice it's not very good. Or maybe my system isn't working properly.
I always use full auto mode on...
