    Hi, Hope someone can help. I have to replace my eccentric shaft sensor and I'm looking at some used ones on eBay. There appear to be two different types though both are allegedly suitable for the N46 engine. The obvious differences between the two are that on the back one has a small square...

    Hi all, E46 318i 2003 I'm looking to replace a cam shaft sensor again. I swapped one for a genuine used on a few years back. Only thing is, now when I'm looking on euro car parts, eBay or anywhere else all of the sensors now seem fatter? The original ones (that i took off) have a fat base...

    Hi all My engine, on low revs, sounds like a diesel, that's possibly the best description of it. It runs perfectly other than this. The engine has about 120k on the clock. My gut feeling is that this part has worn down / oil has seaped inside it. Given past experience, when it comes to...

    Is it possible to outright replace the torque converter and input shaft seal without replacing the gearbox? BMW say I need a new gearbox but the thing still engages gears albeit slowly and not at the correct time. I know these guys know a lot more than me but surely a torque converter can be...
