    Hi Al Coul anyone helps me out a little? please I've got an E90 320d 2007 model M47. Past few days when I pull away, I get a noise coming from a belt.

  3. Squeaky rear suspension. Why?

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    How do I solve the above? E90 320d 2011 with 105k. I notice it when I get in and out of the car and pushing the back of the car up and down obviously causes it too. So assuming it's the springs do I just take it to the local garage and tell them to oil them? Never had this issue before. Any...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    The driver's seat in my 2004 coupe is really really squeaky. It's full black leather. it certainly doesn't feel collapsed and even the side bolsters are good. Just wondering if anyone has addressed this problem before? Is it a case of stripping it down and inspecting the springs or is it the...

    Hey, I did quite a bit of research and did not find anything that covered the kind of noise that is coming from my dash. It's a squeaky noise that sound like plastic rubbing on plastic and seems to emanate from the passenger side close to the i Drive where the defrost vents are. It's easily...
  6. Squeaky AC compressor

    BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    My A/C compressor has started making a rather nasty noise. It's making a squeaky/rubbing noise somewhat similar to knackered belt tensioner. The clutch part can be seen wobbling slightly in time with the noise. I presume it's had it. Before grovelling to the wife and spending huge sums of...

  9. Anyone cured a squeaky steering wheel

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I've read plenty stuff about curing a squeaky steering wheel involving making straw pipes and spraying lubricant onto parts of the steering column. Trouble is all guides I've read are American and perhaps the guides don't work for right hand drives. Just wondering if anyone has successfully...
  10. Air Con AC not working after fixing squeaky blower on E91

    Auto Electrical Forum
    I've removed, regreased, and refitted a squeaky blower which was squeaking then stopped working. Since then the AC stopped working. I've had the system regassed but still no AC. Is there somewhere else I should be looking? Would a faulty FSR cause problems with the AC? Is there an easy way of...

    sometimes if my climate control fan is on the lowest speed it sometimes squeaks just a little but not a lot.
