  1. BMW 1 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 1 Series
    Hi all hoping someone can help... I have an f21 116i 63 plate. The brakes seems to be dragging causing very poor mpg. They also stick on, taking several seconds to release after releasing the pedal. This happens when the brakes are cold or warm. They also apply themselves occasionally when...

    Hi There, I have an issue that i believe is related to the turbo system for about 18 month. I have done approximately 25k miles over that period and it has only got slightly worse, so i do not think it is the actual turbo playing up as i assume it would have packed up all together by now and it...

    2007 118i m sport manual 6 speed. Driving along including stopping and starting. Using handbrake there are no issues. But when I put the car in reverse and go to move the car has what's described as a metallic ping and then the car feels like a sticking brake releases. I can apply the brakes...

    Hi all, I took my front calipers off last weekend as the brakes were sticking slightly. The slide pins were gummed up so I cleaned them up and refitted with some copper slip. I found the front left caliper piston wouldn't return unless I undid the nipple. It seemed OK, but today it feels like...

    Hi there, I've noticed that when I use the washer jets and the headlamp washers come on also, the drivers side one often doesn't retract properly leading me to have to push it back in manually when I get out of the car. Has anyone else had this and is it a simple fix? J:)

    Hi folks, I want so stick on my new number plate as opposed to screwing. It will go on the front of a E93. Has anyone successfully done this with normal sticky pads? Reason I ask is because the plate holder is curved and I don't know if pads will hold it. Thanks!

    Hey folks, I have a problem with a sticking brake on the rear passenger side wheel. I have read these forums enough to know that there can be an issue with sticky pistons, but I have a further issue. I'll explain the history in short detail and let you see what you think. Hopefully you have...

    Collected my 328 on Tuesday and the first thing i noticed was how stiff the accelerator pedal was, it was like pushing on a brick lol also seems as if the throttle is sticking as the revs don't drop when you go to change gear, even after a 4 and a half hour journey back home it was still pretty...

    Hi there. This is my first post. I've just bought a 2004 E46 convertible which has the power fold Mirrors. They will both fold in but the driver side mirror needs to be manually folded back out. Is this a common problem? Would a bit of WD40 sort this out or is this a common fault? Thanks guys

    Hi Folks, I'm a newbie here, having just picked up my first ever personally-owned BMW this weekend. I used to work for BMW back in 2007-2008 (as a dreaded salesman) and so thought I knew what to expect from this vintage of car but this problem's a new one to me and I can't find anything online...

    Hi, My rev counter needle has started playing up and it keeps sticking. For example, if I drove to 60mph it would jump from 500rpm to 2000rpm to 2500rpm (random number just as an example). Has anyone else had this issue or can anyone recommend some troubleshooting steps to fixing it? Thanks

    I have just bought my E70 and one of the first thing that I noticed was that when you press to open the glovebox it sticks and you have to catch it and open it manually. Upon investigation it appears that the leather is peeling in the corners and catching. The recommended fix is to replace for...

    Hi everyone, I have just bought myself a 1997 BMW 840CI and i suspect I will be spending a lot of time on these forums picking up useful advice. In fact, that is what I am looking for now. When I first saw the car the driver side headlight did not pop up when switched on. I cam back the next...
