  1. E46 318 coolant leak dripping on guibo

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hello, Well after selling my E46 (330D) for an X5 (to tow) I realised how much I missed the former, so I've got my hands on another one, this time an 1999 E46 318. Over the weekend I've had a couple of coolant issues, which I'm struggling to cure. The first was the adapter that sits at the...
  2. 2006 E90 320d rear flex disc guibo warped or misaligned?

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hello all, I replaced my rear guibo flex disc on my e90 320d using a Meyle product, put together as it was, all bolts lined up, used thread locker when reassembling, the flex disc is installed in the right direction but it looks warped as the one on the photo. The propshaft seems to be about a...

    BMW 7 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 7 Series
    I have a 2004 e65 730D. After seeing a few threads online (and noticing a bit of jerking movement when the car gets to a stop) I decided to change it. Everything went smoothly (have a friend with a garage so used the ramp and tools). I nearly had a massive OH NO moment though After we put...
  4. Part numbers for Driveshaft flex disc (Guibo) & main thermostat

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    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...
  5. Need help diagnosing problem

    General BMW Discussions
    Previously posted on e46fanactics, but i figured i'd put it here too. Some ideas were a busted clutch or a torn up guibo. I've no idea what a guibo is, however. I googled it but i don't fully understand. Hi all, I find myself in a state of ****ed again. A few nights ago, I went to launch my...
  6. e36 320 coupe guibo missing

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hi all, just wondering if anyone can help. I have bought a new guibo/flex disc as the car is now on a 155k miles and when I got under the car to have a look at the rear of the prop shaft there is literally no flex disc there. The prop shaft seems bolted straight to the diff. Just wondering if...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I've got a 2000 E46 330ci - Auto for quite a while I've had a but of a thud when shifting it into reverse, a sort of serenity for a moment, then a good old thud - it wasn't enough to worry me and I put it down to a warn differential bush. More recently I've noticed that under acceleration in...

  10. 2003 E46 330D manual - vibration - BMW or non BMW guibo / flex disc

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi, 130k on clock and getting vibrations between 20 and 60mph when not on power, also a bit "un smooth" when on full power - sometimes. From all research looks like would be sensible to do the guibo / flex disk and centre propshaft bearing. BMW bits a tad pricy especially for the guibo. Any...
  11. Does an M3 guibo fit a 330cd? E46

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    As title. I've read it does, but RealOEM says they have a different LK. The M3 one is 96mm but the manual 330cd is 110mm. It says LK=bolt hole. Here's where my confusion starts: Does it mean the space between the holes on the guibo, or does it actually mean the length/depth of the bolt holes...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Well, whatever you want to call it. I suspect mine is the cause of my current problem, but I'd appreciate it if you could take a look at this photo to see what you think. Unfortunately I couldn't get a better shot as I could not find my trolley jack. Symptoms are rapid thumping / knocking...
