    The dipstick tube coming from the sump splits into two: one side is the long tube where you insert the dipstick and the other side is very short and has a hose connected to it that goes to the oil separator (see pic). There is a small O-ring that goes onto the short end before it goes into the...

    It seems to be a support bar, just behind the sump, running across the car, with two huge bolts holding it in place, one on each side. I can't find it any diagram unless I'm looking in the wrong place. I need to know the part number of the 2 bolts that hold it in place. Thanks

    Can anyone identify what device would have fitted behind the bulge in the passenger side carpet? I've looked on realOEM but can find anything that fits in that position. I'd like to find the bracket so I could fit an amplifier in its place.

    Hello fellow BMW owners. Yesterday as I tried to top up the oil level I had noticed a few loose parts inside the engine through the oil top up cap. They looked like broken pieces of some plastic part. I pulled out two of them and took a picture of them. Does somebody know of which part it could...

    Hi all, so recently I have noticed an annoying rattle from the passenger side rear of my car, initially I thought it was a loose trim of some sort however during the recent spell of hot weather I was driving with the windows down and whenever I hit a bump the rattle would sound inside vehicle...

    Couple of times in the last week the cabin has started filling with smoke when the engine is ticking over. When I pulled over to the side of the road on the first occasion I noticed the coolant level was low although I hadn't topped it up that long previously. I suspected a leak as I could see...

    I replaced the engine in my 04 320D and stupidly didn't label the engine loom when taking it off. Everything is back together but I have one plug left unplugged and I can't find an empty socket. As you can see it isn't far from where the loom is bolted to the block.

    I?ve got an oil leak from this plug located on next to the spark plugs, electrical plug going into the rocker cover. Looks like a 2 bolted plastic gasket surrounding the electrical plug. Any clues on what this is to replace the seal?

    Hi Everyone, Can anyone help identify this pipe that literally just fell apart in my hand? I have entered my vin into realoem, but for the life of me I can not find it to order a replacement. Found a pic of an engine and have highlighted it here. So the next question is of course that it is...

    I was removing the undertray and saw this was covered in oil, with oil clearly on the part of the undertray located beneath it. I was wondering what it was, and whether it should be covered in oil? If not, what should I do about it? (It's located on the right hand side of the vehicle, behind...

    Ok guys. I have a 2008 318i saloon which had some very tatty standard 17" alloys. Rather than refurb the standard wheel I picked up a lovely set of wheels from a newer model of bmw. I do not know exactly what year or model they came from. The wheels that are now fitted to my 318 have Bridgestone...
