Both my left and right Fresh Air Intake Ducts (the part that connects the microfilter housing to the firewall/cabin) are excessively loose/wobbly. The point at which they connect to the square port on the firewall towards the cabin appears to be in question: The ducts appear to be...
BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
Does anyone know if the power-folding wing mirrors with the ribbon connectors were fitted to the 7 Series E65/E66? Some tosser broke mine off but I am finding it difficult to find a replacement. I have noticed the E65 ones look/are the same but cannot identify if they were fitted to the...
I have a BMW E66 760Li RHD which I imported from Japan over a year ago, since owning the cigeratte lighters have never worked. I had a guy check it...
He thought the following....
-He checked the fuses above the glove box....all fine

My dad has just bought a 55 plate E65 7 series which has the car phone in the dash drawer. Manual says it's Bluetooth . He's been trying to pair his smartphone with no success. There seems to be no pairing option. Are there any work arounds to get his smartphone to work in his car ? I.e take &...

Recently I have bought BMW 730d 2007.
First fault code I got 43D1 DDE: Throttle-valve actuator, activation.
I have managed to fix it by taking apart Throttle Body and by soldering burned out fuse on PCB.
But after when I fixed 43D1 I got another code, 4501 DDE: Exhaust-gas...
Well this weekend I picked up a 2002 BMW e65 745i for the bargain price of £400.
"Whats wrong with it?" you ask...
well, all of the things!
The car has stood for 6 years, mostly indoors, but the leaves in the trays say not always. I've known of the cars existence for about 8 years - 10...
Help! I have a 2004 v12 6 litre e65 saloon, and I cannot spot the heater valve under the bonnet! I know what I am looking for, as I have replaced one on a 740, but I cannot find the valve anywhere in the v12 engine compartment. Anyone out there help me???
E66 crankshaft vibration damper
I've been having vibration through cockpit on 05 facelift e66, so took it to a local specialist and they think it's the vibration damper being out of balance. They want £300 to change it which seems a bit steep to me as it's basically a pulley wheel...
Totally new here and have my car at a local garage who is investigating a fault.
The ABS light comes on and stays on. FYI- the car has been sitting for 18 months (55k miles and full history) and i've just started getting it back on the road.
The error code on the garage diags unit...
When I bought the car, it had the Increased emissions warning.
A scan showed p0401 egr. The car has been remapped recently and the egr deleted, the Increased emissions warning is still there, I've also replaced the MAF.
So, do I need to clean the egr, or install a bypass kit, also do I cap off...
I'm getting the check engine light and increased emmisions warning, and a scan shows p0401 egr flow insufficient.
The car has been remapped and the egr deleted, the vacuum hose to the egr has been disconnected and capped off.
How's best to rectify this?
Sent from my SM-G935F...
Had this symptom since I've had the car for a few months.
When accelerating, say out of a junction - the car hesitates before moving off.
It's annoying, and on occasions has bordered on dangerous!
Another example, at the lights give it almost full power -it hesitates, probably a second...
After noticing a few drops on the floor ive checked under the bonnet to find a layer of oil over a large part of the engine.
I've attached pictures, could someone please tell me if this is the ps pump, it appears to be leaking from the underside and has been flung everywhere by the...
I have a 2002 e65 735i with the n62b36 engine with 70k miles on.
The car misfires (usually cyl 2 & 5 but often others) when under any sort of load once it has warmed up.
From cold (air flow controlled by throttle body) it revs up fine and can be driven with no issues.
About 2 minutes...
Cat starts fine when cold, but can often refuse to start when hot.
It can crank for a number of seconds before I remove/reinsert the key and try again.
It starts after a few attempts.
What could be a likely cause?
It did get scanned some time ago for another issue, I remember the guy...
