  1. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Went to change a headlight bulb on a 2012 F31 halogen headlight and the reflector piece inside the headlight unit is loose, not sure if I’ve done it or it was loose before. Managed to get it back on the white peg which looks like an adjuster but it’s still not secure properly? Any ideas if I can...

    Hey. The handbrake on my 2007 e61 is very sloppy, the clicks don't always engage cleanly so it clicks when pulling up then drops back down to the off position. Any likely culprits? Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Hi all wise ones. I thought a side light bulb had gone this weekend, and on doing some research I wasn't really relishing the thought of changing the bulb! However, imagine my pleasant surprise when on wiggling one of the wires, those halo/angel rings sprung back into life! I've tie wrapped the...

    Hi I picked up a 330ci Clubsport last week. All good but on the drivers side; the rear bumper has come away a bit where it meets the wheel arch. Is this going to be a case of taking the bumper off and replacing all the mounts or is there a quick fix?

    Hi there I'm new here. I just found a loose wire connection as you can see in the top of the attached picture. I cannot figure out where it goes, but I presume it's electrical and connects to some sort of sensor. The wire goes to a T-piece, that goes to the pressure converter on the turbo side...

    Hi, What the consensus on this? Its a 3L 525i petrol, 2009 vintage. 73K miles on the clock. I think there may be an injector in there which needs looking at. It just sounds a bit more rattly than other M54s I've come across. What do we think? Cheers (problem with attachment handling hence...

    Hi, new to the forum so sorry if I'm posting in the wrong place! I've had my e46 for about a year and since buying it have had a problem with the gears. All the gears feel loose, I struggle to get it in to 3rd sometimes (not because it's stiff, feels more like it's just not inline?). This only...

    Hello. I'm just purchased a 2010 m sport steering wheel and fitted it to my e90. I noticed a noise when steering tight turns. The airbag itself seems loose? It seems to be clicked in via the clips but still has play if I wobble it. Is this normal? Have other people got play in it or is mine wrong?
