    Hello I am new to this forum, I have been quoted £1640 for a new driveshaft on my BMW 316d. Is this the right cost for this replacement? How much should I expect a drive shaft replacement to cost? Thanks in advance Mike

    So I have a E46 318i 1.9L I bought this car as a drift project as it's quite cheap and something fun to learn in. I have a welded diff and have done the weight reduction. So I switched off traction and abs etc but I still managed to break driveshaft in half, swapped them out and went oit again...

    Hey guys, hopefully you can help me locate the problem. I've noticed the click sound when putting the first gear or reverse. I've believe that could be a Propshaft Coupling (donut). But what worries me mostly is : Strange noise on the second gear around 1300-1500 revs when accelerating. It's...

    Hello from a newbie I am wanting to build a narrow IRS to fit into an MGB, I have chosen to use the BMW mid size diff because it will handle the 250 bhp (perhaps the small diff might as well), there are plenty of them about and have a vast range of ratios. I need to know certain things first...

    Hi First post on here and new to bmw so go easy on me! I have recently had a problem with the ABS on my e91 touring which ended up being the reluctor ring rusting away, upon removal of the driveshaft I have noticed the CV is split so I decided I would change the driveshaft or outer cv which has...

    Hi All, One more question as I want to clear things up. Sometimes when I'm putting 1st gear or reverse and releasing the clutch I can hear a small bang from underneath a car. Could it be a driveshaft ? That is a first thing which come into my head. Thanks for replies.

    Hi guys, I have an e81 with the abs fault. I initially replaced the rear sensors but that hasn't fixed it. On close inspection the abs reluctor rings look like they need replacing. I've heard because of the corrosion that occurs underneath the ring it can then be difficult to get a new ring...

    For the past 10 days I have been experiencing a vibration type noise coming from the rear of my BMW E46. No noise can be heard from driving from 0-30mph, though when the clutch is engaged to change from 3rd gear to 4th gear a vibration noise can be heard from the rear, however this noise goes...

    Dear readers, I'm having a problem with the main thermostat (temp indicator stays low), and I need to replace it. This engine has no EGR thermostat for some reason. Another problem is the vibrations I am feeling coming from the back of the car, it simply shakes badly when shifting gears, 1st to...

It's a 2003 330ci The vibration seems to be coming from the front/middle of the car and can be felt in the footwell/pedals and seat the most. It's not too heavy but can be felt at all speeds and gets slightly worse the faster you...

    So my e46 has developed a rattle but only at 1000rpm. It sounds like the exhaust is lose but isn't and it's coming from the rear nearside. The rattle is definitely a mechanical sound and coming from this area. Hit 1100rpm and it disappears. And this is stationary. Moving makes no difference to...
