    I am just writing here for a bit of advice, my F32 430d was in the dealer the other day for warranty work and when I collected it I noticed in the sunshine a paint defect on the rear pillar above the small window. It is something that definitely wasn't there the last time I washed and polished...

    My X3 E83 2.0d has had a clunk at the rear for quite some time while turning at very low speeds, several years and a few mechanics have looked at it, tyres have been changed etc to no avail but it has got a bit worse lately. I got under the car today and found that there is some play in the rear...

    See the picture. The gasket has blown out of the joint in the exhaust just at the back of the engine protection plate. Time has taken its toll on the fixings and I can't even see how it's meant to go together. Anybody have any experience/thoughts on sorting this out?

    Have a 40,000 miler on which the lower rear control arms at the front wheels (both at once) have just been diagnosed as having shot balljoints. Surprised they've gone at such a low mileage, but hey. Will argue that one with the dealer. In terms of sorting the problem, obviously these need...

    Car has a knocking coming from n/s/r and garage has said it's the upper bush on the rear hub at the top of the trailing arm. They say that the trailing arm has to come off to press the bush out, but looking on the net it looks like they can be taken out with a bush extraction tool? Anyone...

    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...

    My car is due its MOT this week so in a spate of feeling keen (see rear diff oil change thread) I decided it was time to tackle my damaged flexi joint. Mine is a pre-LCI car so maybe different to the LCI. Anyway the flexi in between the CAT and intermediate pipe before the DPF was in a poor...

    I had my airbag replacement at BMW today and ended up with a nice clean car which was a bonus. They did a 'health check' video for me and it's got a leaky rear damper which I knew about and slight play in the OS front ball joint (the hub, not the inboard one). Reading around it seems more...

    Both side of my car the lower front ball joints have a bit of play. If I jack the front up I can wobble both front wheels a little and watch them move slightly. I just took it to a local friends garage and he said they all have a bit of play like that. Is that correct?
  18. BMW Guides and How To's
    My first attempt to give something back to the forum, hope I'm adding something interesting/useful. I've needed to remove the ball joints/bushes between the trailing arm and the upper and lower control arms. I'd seen various 'proper' tools costing hundreds of dollars and some DIYs particularly...

    Any ideas how I can get out of this pickle: https://www.dropbox.com/s/yzy4lrh6ivhfvia/20141207_140932.jpg?dl=0 I first tried a fork type splitter, then gave up and tried a winding cup type splitter, but that ended up bending the bolt as you can see in the pic! My next option was to try the...

    Hello All Having had my 8 checked over, I am working through the short list of items that need attention. One of them is the rear ball joint dust covers which are split. I am advised to ignore it and it should get through an MOT - as it did in May before I bought it. I was further advised by my...
