  1. 2001 320d brake disk upgrade. :)

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hello again. As can be found on on the worldwide interweb, you may, as myself, have read that you can freely upgrade the front brake disks on your e46. I took the plunge, ordered and installed a pair of 325mm disks for the front, with no compatibility problems bolting them on. To do this I...
  2. Uneven Font Disk Wear ?

    General BMW Discussions
    Hi guys, I noticed yesterday when I had my E39 jacked up to do an oil change that the front disks are worn very unevenly. The outer face on both sides is relatively smooth and shiny, and looks like a typical brake disk should. However the inside faces, which I had not seen until I went under...
  3. Rear Drivers Wheel Hot and Burning Smell after Pad + Disk Change

    BMW 1 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 1 Series

  6. Strength of Brake disk for hub pulling

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi All I have seized hubs on my 2002 325. My hub pullers wont work as they cant grip on the lip of the hub. I have had a thought about removing the brake disk, turning it around and using the 5 bolts to hold it in place but loose from the hub. This would enable me to use my pullers on the inside...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I'm struggling to take my brake disk off! I have a strange feeling that it's never been removed.. I've heard/seen people online hitting the disk with a hammer to break it loose but surely there must be another effective method?

    BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    I've had a problem since I've owned the car and no one can identify the cause of the problem. I'm hoping that some of the E31 luminaries can assist where various garages have failed.. I had a problem with the shimmy which (thanks to Timms website) led me to change the various control arms and...
