    Hi. I have a BMW 320d 2007, non UK model , and the run flat warning has come on. The tyre has not gone down (the one that I think it is) and I want to check the tyre pressures and make sure they are ok. Problem is there is no sticking out valve, just a flat looking plate that looks like I...

    I have a 2009 120d Convertible. The battery is completely flat and so I am unable to open the boot or the bonnet to access the battery or to recharge it. Is it feasible to provide temporary power via the cigarette lighter to enable the boot and the bonnet to operate.

Last time we had a decent amount of snow (years back) my E91 was nigh on impossible to get off...

    Hi all, I have searched, didn't know what to do now! My battery went flat and the steering locked when I tried to start it few times. Now the airbag warning light is also on. I am lost!! Will putting a new battery in at least allowed me to start the car? Please can someone advise. Thanks.

    I see from the handbook that if you use the canister of tyre sealant to inflate the tyre after a puncture it knackers the tyre pressure sensor electronics and they need to be replaced. Does anyone have any experience of this & is it expensive?

    A few weeks ago I had the iDrive system alert for low tire pressure. When I went to the schematic all four tires were showing yellow. I pulled over and checked the pressure and all four were at the correct pressure. I reset or reinitialized the system and everything was fine. Today the same...
