    BMW 1 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 1 Series
    Hi, I have a creak noise from the left side while driving at low speed of about 6 mph. The noise frequency increases when increasing a bit the speed. The issue doesn't occur always, and more often it occurs while turning right. I would very appreciate if you could give me a clue. Thanks in...
  3. 2007 E90 320D - Dashboard Creak Fix DIY

    Technical Guides for the E90, E91, E92, E93, F30.
    After doing some research I found that the strut brace could be the cause of the issue, since it happens when the chassis flexes, but I checked the bolts and they're tight as a rock! which kind of explains why the dash will creak even by pushing it with my hand...

    I have a creak coming from I think the column on my E90. Has anyone had this before, or got any idea where to look or how to fix? All the suspension components have been replaced about a year ago, so its not a topmount/balljoint etc. Cheers

    Seasons Greetings Folks, My 2010 E91 has developed a creak around the right hand side pillar area, I've checked under the bonnet for the torsion bar bolts and they're as tight as they should be so it's something else. The RHS vent clip recently broke so been thinking it could be related to...
