I’ve noticed I can get my hand between the tyre wall and fender with room on the front passenger side (UK) but can’t get it in between the front right side at all, is this normal? I’m worried because I had my shocks done last year and one of them was fitted poorly and leaked (front right) so got...

Since the repair I first noticed a patch of water under the accelerator pedal which On closer inspection the carpets were absolutely wet through front and rear drivers side .
I have removed the seat and...
Follow Tim's great DIY for clearing the drains then if you don't want to have to worry about the front's again create these.
I'm afraid I don't own a convertible so I can't create anything for the rear drains though.

I have a USB connection front camera which I'm going to install it at the bottom of the front number plate ( see photo), and need someone to guide me how to run the wire from the front number plate to the passenger's glove box.
My car is E92 - 320D (year 2013).
Thanks in advance.
2010 BMW X5 E70 with 120,000 miles. Vibration on acceleration.
I have recently fitted a new front propshaft, genuine BMW part, the type with a universal joint on it (hardy spicer joint) as the joint was seized, and was causing a vibration.
I contacted BMW about the problem, but they said there...
Ok a bit of history first. I purchased this car just under a month ago from an authorised BMW dealership as it was a year old with very low mileage 2600.
I ran my previous E91 320d into the ground, so this was a big step up and a bit of a dream car, especially the 6 cylinder engine.
Having noticed an oil leak on my front left damper which is fitted with electronic damper control. I tried to source a replacement, told only a dealer part at £580+vat. I have found a supplier in Germany Aerosus at a cost of £315 inc vat and delivery .
The car is booked in with my local...
Has anyone come across replacement trim for the front side repeater /indicators?
Mine is an LCI model so has no indicators, but I'd like to replace the chrome with gloss black to match the grille and window/mirror trim. Any ideas?

Today I swapped my E83 X3 fabric rear seats for leather and all went well...until I started the front seats
I started with the passenger seat. The swap was a manual seat for another manual seat. I undid the two nuts and two bolts and unplugged the yellow connector block and the cable that...
is there any reason I cant run a front 313 wheel 225/35/19 on the back? (back being 255/35/19). Thinking about using a spare one as a spare wheel.
also could a pair be used with spacers instead of the 255 rear wheels which keep cracking?

Hi, I bought a 325 Ci about 2 months ago with a cleaned engine, I have just changed the anti roll bar bushes and found an oil leak coming from the top of the engine at the front but I don't think its the rocker cover gasket, is it the vanos unit? Is it an easy fix?
General question that hopefully someone can advise on.
Having just chucked on new Zimmerman discs n textar pads (made in GB now???) on the front, plus a new wear sensor as the old one was a bit crumbly and didnt allow a brake service reset. Anyhow when I rest it, it only gave me 10,000...

Hi, Im a bit stumped by a fault with both front windows on my 1997 323i convertible.
Both front windows don't go up or down at all. This also means they don't drop and raise when opening and closing the doors. The rear windows work fine as does everything else on the car.
I have scanned the...

This is so annoying as it's probably a quick fix. I've tried searching for the answer with no joy.
Any tips or advice welcome.

When I start the car up and reverse out of the garage I notice some sort of fluid (water like) just behind the drives side wheel on the floor, is it just condensation from something?
Not had a chance to look in the engine bay yet.
