    The automatic opening on my boot is intermittent. It unlocks every time but doesn't always lift. If I push it closed again by hand then press the remote button it opens ok. Is there an adjustment anywhere? I've checked the boot seal and everything seems in place just in case anything was...

    Hi guys, I am new here as I am a new BMW owner! I hope I have put this in the right section. The handle/lever on the driver side to open the bonnet is (somehow) missing from the car, all that is left is the mechanism inside. I can try and use my fingers to pull it but nothing seems to budge -...

    Hi everyone. Got an issue with the rear n/s door. It can’t be opened from the inside or outside and the lock does this weird double jumping (lock, unlock, lock, unlock) thing every time I try to open the car.

    Hello, Long story short - I have a X reg touring BMW. When I open the boot sometimes it sets off the loud, beep of an alarm which feels as though it lasts forever and blows fuse 49 (central locking + wipers + interior lights). Usually I just avoid opening the boot, or just change the fuse if...
