  1. Noisy Air-Con behind dashboard on F36

    BMW 4 Series - Tech Talk F32,F33,F36,F82,F83
    Hi there, I am sure I've asked this question before but cannot find the thread. I've had the car for 3 1/2 yrs now (65 plate) and ever since the first hot weather I've been very surprised at just how noisy the blower is behind the dashboard on the passenger side. It seems to be connected with...

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13

  3. 525d 2010 f10 noisy timing chain 3rd party warranty

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi all I have a 3rd party warranty and I have a noisy timing chain. From what i gather a noisy timing chain is not covered under warranty even though i have the top level of warranty with that company. They apparantly will put it down to wear and tear but a broken timing chain and resulting...
  4. noisy bearings?

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    After 6 years with an e46 I am finding the e91 I acquired in the New Year noisy at speed. A sort of thrumming which changes as the roadspeed changes. Sounds just like the sort of bearing noise you get from the back of a front-drive vehicle like a QuashKai (sorry can't spell this junk-heap) I...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Evening folks, Been a while. Had my car off the road for nearly a year doing all the suspension, bushes, removing the rear subframe/diff carrier, etc. Anyway, I've got some nasty sounding engine noise, which from the video (if it works) sounds bad, but in the car with the bonnet down and...

    Hi Guys, On the rear of the 1999 328 Coupe, I have a rattle. Had the NS (LH) wheel off to checked the bushes, which aren't too bad, but I noticed that where the diff mount is bolted, it is moving up and down when loaded and unloaded. Q, Is that peice of metal the mount is bolted to, suppose...
  7. 530i noisy whirring engine, power steering low?

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi everyone slowly working through a couple of problems and just as I figure one out another crops up. I have a leaky reservoir and figured it’s maybe just the cap oring or a hose connection. But recently I have taken notice of a whirring sound rising and falling with engine speed, and when...
  8. Noisy dvd player

    BFuk Open Topic
    I bought another dvd player second hand, its a little noisy however owing to a noisy fan, now I have in the past had fantastic success by oiling up pc fans (yes you can peel the sticker off, put some normal oil in, not wd40, but proper oil and it goes silent) however I haven't tried this on such...

  11. Noisy 118d on acceleration

    BMW 1 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 1 Series
    Hi Just recently bought a 2010 118d Msport. When I was test driving it I highlighted a loudish noise when under acceleration. After reading up about timing chain issues after I had put down a large deposit, am I being a paranoid owner. I was put at ease by listening to other 118d and 120d...
  12. Hopefully found the cause of my noisy diff

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Had a loud noise on deceleration using engine braking and spotted I had an oil leak coming from the input pinion on the diff. On closer inspection I found the previous owner had removed the diff to fill it completely with oil to hide the noisy diff to sell it on. This caused the oil seal to leak...

    Hi folks - just bought a 330 Sport Touring manual and wanted to start a "multipurpose" thread for a few teething issues! 1) The glass tailgate operates as expected, but won't stay open. I have looked at the hinges/springs and they look the same as all the pics I can find on the internet -...

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi everyone. This is my first post here after scouring the internet for an answer to no avail. I've got a 2014 (just) 318d, registered end of January 2014. I've had it for about 6 months.

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Afternoon folks, On the odd occasion I notice a kind of ticking noise, very rapid, doesn't really sound like tappets to me. After a bit of googling and searching I've come across the Timing chain tensioner, which can make a similar sounding noise, possibly... The noise kind of comes and goes...
  18. E64 m6 slightly noisy front fan

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Hi everyone, just wondered if anyone else suffers this noise. When the front fan is cranked up it makes a noise like there's a leaf catching the blades. My car was in recently having some warranty work done so whilst I was there I asked them about this noise (irritating more then anything. Just...
