    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi All, Getting ready to take it to Chemix tomorrow to hopefully see if the new hub and arms have solved the bend preventing a proper adjustment but after doing some checks I noticed that it looked like the belt was wobbling slightly, so I stopped the engine and noticed the belt seems very...

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Symptoms: 1. When transitioning between accelerating and engine braking (or vice versa) there is often an audible clunk that is also felt. This also happens sometimes while reversing. 2. When going uphill and stopping at lights I will apply the handbrake while waiting. When pulling away the...

    BMW 1 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 1 Series
    Hi all, I recently bought new wheels for my 116i SE, they're the M Sport ones, 205/55/17 front and 225/45/17 rear. I drove the car for a week or two with the new wheels and it felt great. I noticed however that my old tyres were unevenly worn so I got the wheels aligned. After alignment the...
  4. 2001 E46 320d- Slack in the gearstick/notchy gearchange

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I've just bought a 2001 320d with 155k on the clock all is well except that the gearchange feels a bit slack and notchy. I've noticed that when in neutral and you move it across towards 5th it doesn't spring back to centre, it springs back fine when moved towards 1st. Is there something that...
  5. 2002 E46 320D Manual slack gear change

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi the gear change on my car is very slack, ie ther is no resistance on the lever all gears work as they should and there is no noise from the gear box. But it is some times easy to miss 3rd and get 5th instead when changing up from 2nd. Are any parts of the linkage known to wear?

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hi all, I have just bought a 328i touring, and was having a poke under the bonnet today and found that the ASC cable is really slack? I could see an adjuster there but didn't want to remove the slack incase it was intentional... Any ideas? Cheers Rob,
  8. 2001 E46 320d - slack pedals

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi guys Ive got a 2001 e46 320d with 78k on the clock and noticed that the gas peddle and clutch feel too sort of smooth I guess and weak. As in my previous car 520i pedals were nice and firm not stiff but firm. The pedals on the 320d just fall over the minute I lay my feet on them. Is there...
