    Evening ladies and gents. For a while my engine has been making a rattling type noise (only under strain) I'm guessing it's the vanos. I've lived with it for the time being as it's not obvious when out on the open road. I now have another noise coming from the area of the vanos. I've had a...

    Ok,im stumped on this as endless searching has come up with nothing. In drive or manual or sport,when the car is under load such as going uphill or a slight gradient the car will squeal/screech just before the next gear change.This happens from 3rd to fifth gear. This behaviour is most...

    Hello all, hopefully someone can shed some light on the issue which I am experiencing. When I turn the ignition on (but don't start the engine) I hear what can only be described as a short lived screeching/scraping noise, I have identified it as coming from the turbo area. From what I can see...

    Hi, I have a 2006 E60 523i. The windscreen wipers have been screeching slightly (in an irritating manner) since I bought the car less than 2 mths ago. The sound is a mix of screeching and plastic wiper blade frame hitting the windscreen (at least sounds like it, as when wipers move you don't...

    Hi! I had my car (2006 330i at) for two months now and in the last couple of weeks I have noticed that I get this horrible screeching sound (video below) every time I start the car in the morning.

    Hi all, In an attempt to diagnose my failing central locking issue, I proceeded to unplug the 41-pin plug from the CAS module, in the hope to test if the signal from the FBD was reaching pin 33 on the CAS. Anyhow, I replaced the plug and when I now turn the ignition on or off (without the...

    I’ve just bought my first BMW, it’s a clean 330cd M-Sport with 80K on the clock and full service history. I absolutely love it. I’m experiencing an intermittent sucking screeching as the turbo comes on boost, which then changes through the rev range. It’s not there all the time and it does not...
