    My key activates all other 3 doors and boot but not the front passenger door. This is 2nd time its happened. I tried a dose of WD40 on a cable but that only solved the problem for 3 weeks. I have heard that this is a common problem due to a design fault but do not know exactly what the problem...

    Hey Everyone The 'lid' on the back doesn't quite grip like it used to on one side - has anyone seen and solved this before? I took a video of it happening here: It only does this on one side. It kinda sucks it down like it should and then lets go and it looks loose. I'm worried it might...

    Hi all, hope someone can give me some insight. I have a 2011 X3 and about a week ago it started saying the boot was open despite being very closed. The lights go out as they should and nothing seems out of order. I've check the wire loom on both sides of the lid and didn't find any frayed...

    Hi guys, had a new error come up (show in picture) about the throttle body, had a look around and seems that if stays open then this will cause a rough shut up, heard it could be the actuator that controls it fails and gets full of oil I pulled the turbo hose off and I could move the flap...

    Hi All, I've searched high and low and a number of BMW forums for guidance on my issue without success. I recently bought an E30 which had been off the road for some time but came from my friend with MOT. After connecting the battery, a short trip to the petrol station and back, I locked it...

    Hello All, I've owned my 204hp 330d manual since 2012, and she's been great, but with 113k under her belt she's developed a few niggles. Firstly, when idling, often the revs will fluctuate very slowly every 3 seconds or so by 50rpm or so - "bouncing" - and this creates quite a vibration...

    I've recently brought a 320i 2009 coupe. I parked my car at work returned to it 9 hours late, press the key fob and an alarm tone started to sound from the passengers side rear tyre, with no flashing indicators and the car would not open. Having taken the key out of the fob and open the door...

    Folks very occasionally I will get out my car and close the drivers door and it won't close. It bangs off the keeper as if it is already locked. It doesn't appear to do any damage but the noise it makes makes me cringe as I am half expecting the paint to chip and glass to break. I have checked...

    I have a query in regards to when i switch off the engine. When the engine is turned off with the clutch up there is a very noticeable shudder and shake. When the clutch is depressed the level of shudder and shake is dramatically reduced. Now i thought this was something to do with a worn dual...

    Hi, My passenger door is stuck shut, it will not open from inside or out, this is likely to be the actuator which I have ordered, my problem is I just cannot get the door open to change it. I have checked the fuses and they're fine, I have managed to get the door card off but no matter what I...

    Just bought a 330d, now it has this noise when at idle, its intermittant, comes and goes every 6-8 seconds, sounds like a burring/light clatter of some sort, pressing clutch makes no difference, revving it, feathering the throttle even the slightest makes the noise go away. Car runs fine...
