    BMW 1 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 1 Series
    Hi all, Please forgive me. I’m sure this is just one of many treads about the same thing. I’ve had a bmw for about 4 months now which has been all fine.

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi guys, Weird noise developed recently. After releasing handbrake and setting off there is a squeal. It sounds like it could be the handbrake shoes sticking maybe? My handbrake is pretty slack so i have to pull up a lot because drive so steep. On slight incline takes 5 clicks to hold. Video...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi Everyone I'm scratching my head and could use some direction if anyone can help. Maybe coincidence... I had an engine management light come on around the same time as my engine started making a loud squealing sound. I have a Creator C310+ which doesn't seem to give codes but does say E4...

  7. Steering squeal

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    My E46 has developed a strange noise - at first I thought it could be the power steering pump, at it makes a buzzing kind of squeal when you first turn the steering wheel, although it's only when you turn to the right. Not had chance to check it at a standstill yet, as the wife is using it for...

    Hi everyone, I have searched through the forum for a problem similar to mine but wasn't able to find anything quite exactly like it. I have a 2007 325i E93. I park on a driveway that's on a slight slope overnight and leave in on P (Park for automatic transmission) and keep my handbrake on...
  11. Extremely strange intermittent "squeal"

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    As the title says really. The squeal only appears between 1300-1500rpm whilst under load and it goes away when I lift off the throttle. If going up a hill whilst holding it at that rpm it gets louder (but doesn't change in pitch) the more you put your foot down between 1300-1500 rpm. Before and...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    So I think I may be slowly going insane from this problem with my N42 engine. :confused I've attached a couple of links at the bottom to recordings I've made of the engine starting up and running. It started making this horrible rattly noise of its own accord one day a few weeks ago when...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I was driving home the other day (cars a 2003 e46 318ci) and my clutch has completely jammed? Still takes gears no problem so box seems okay.. I'm assuming this obviously. I've been told the thrust bearing in the clutch could be the culprit ? This a big job to change ? If anyone has a link to a...
  16. 330ci Engine squeal when I engage reverse or out into drive ?

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi all After I found the engine tapping noise to be a loose spark plug I now have a squeal similar to the one in this video, from exactly the same engine area. In "park"or "neutral" it it doesn't happen but when I engage the "Drive" or "Reverse" position and the squeal starts but then...
