  2. Propshaft coupling

    General BMW Discussions
    How badly damaged does one of these need to be to cause a problem? I have a vibration on my car under hard acceleration in the higher gears when the torque is at its peak and i though it would be this. Upon inspection the front one looks fine, however the rear has some cracks but still...
  3. 2005 330d propshaft coupling

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    My car has started making a strange vibration under hard acceleration. Generally it only does it in 6th gear at 70mph when you floor the throttle. After a bit of research i suspect its the rear propshaft coupling or donut or guibo whatever you want to call it. Anyone got experience of...
  4. Viscous fan coupling and fan

    BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    Hi all. The dealers want £180 for the coupling and I can't seem to find one on Euro Car Parts or Bmmini. Does anyone know of a source for these. Actually Euro CP did have one but it was so cheap I would be scared of using it. Roy.

    BMW 7 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 7 Series
    I have a 2004 e65 730D. After seeing a few threads online (and noticing a bit of jerking movement when the car gets to a stop) I decided to change it. Everything went smoothly (have a friend with a garage so used the ramp and tools). I nearly had a massive OH NO moment though After we put...

  7. BMW E36 2.5i 1993 - Viscous fan coupling

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    I recently decided to change my viscous fan coupling as it had never been changed and was very dirty. I purchased and fitted an EIS viscous fan coupling as a replacement part which I brought from Eurocarparts which cost £28. Will this be an adequate replacement or should I go with a more...
  8. Rotary coupling airbag issue?

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Hi guys. This is a bit of a weird one, and I had to register to ask this question as it is my housemate, not I, that owns a BMW. He owns a 2004 BMW 630 which he has had for just over a year. So heres the story... About 6 months or so ago his airbag light came on and he paid a garage about £50...

  11. E60 530d Prop Shaft Coupling ?

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    On my e60 530d auto occasionally I am getting a clunk (more of a feel than a noise) from the rear end like the prop shaft or diff is taking up some slack before moving off. I have experienced a few times but not continuously normally after a sprint of laid back driving on the motorway and then...
  12. 330Ci auto - new viscous fan coupling?

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Just changed my squeaking AC belt tensioner pulley and noticed the front of the viscous fan coupling was covered with a thick sticky oil - I'm guessing the silicone based oil has begun to leak out of the coupling itself? Time to change it you think?
  13. 2003 330D M Sport - viscous fan coupling - more issues

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi all, me again. So there are several topics ive posted about this but this will be the last I promise. So to sum up this is what's been done/happened to date. Original fan clutch bearing gone, sounded like a tractor so removed. Bought new one, fitted it, was faulty, constantly locked. Got...
  14. where to get a steering coupling e46 330ci?

    BMW Tuning Forum
    as title really, steering is a little vague and vibrates under braking (definitely not discs) independent of speed and has a dead zone where the steering can rock without wheels moving too. so i'm wondering where i can get a new knuckle/bush in the uk, not easy to find and haven't tried a dealer...
  15. 2003 330D M Sport - viscous fan coupling - update - strange noise

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi all, Ok so I changed the viscous fan coupling and the car sounds like a aeroplane. I think the one I bought is broken and the company I bought it from have sent a replacement. I think the broken one is constantly "locked" so even though the temp is fine it is engaged. I'm going to put the...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi all, so I have the m57n 204 bhp diesel engine and I think my viscous fan coupling is goosed. It sounds like a tractor and if looking at the front of the car I can feel play in the coupling. If I put my fingers at 3 and 9 o'clock and push and pull it moves. The question is I've heard varying...

    Hi, could anyone tell me how much labour i should be getting charged to the propshaft coupling and centre bearing to be changed? I just wanted to know as i feel im always getting overcharged, my garage charged me 3 hours for doing the wishbones which i think is excessive. Thanks
