    Hello! I'm a proud owner of BMW 316i Coupe 1997. Everything was working perfect then suddenly my battery died (probabbly because winter conditions). I've bought new battery and replaced it with old one. Then I've realised my left (opened) window stucked. I couldn't find any other solution and...
  2. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Alright guys, my front top-mounts are on their way out and need replacing. I also notice a bit of bottoming out on certain speed-bumps at low speed, so after 150k miles I guess the front shocks are worn out too, so decided to replace the lot in one go and make the job easier. I got hold of a...

    My E91 diversity amp failed months and months ago, and I had to almost touch the rear spoiler with the remote to lock and unlock the car. A new unit was around £250 and used ones from scrap cars were £100. Then I noticed the ones for the X5 looked very similar but had different part no's, they...

    Hey there, got a "little" problem here with swapped clusters. The previous owner got rid of the stock one (don't know the reason) and put in an "M3-like" white cluster, which not only got horrible bubbly backlight, but the speed and revs doesn't even match with the stock 318 tds one! This really...

    So I replaced the disk and pressure plate on my 2002 320d. After this, the clutch pedal moves in a way I'm not used to: when pressing the pedal, it feels pretty heavy and as if it has a spring under it (first 2/3), then suddenly the end is lighter, like the gas pedal. Before the job, the pedal...

    Hi guys I haven't been around for a while - as soon as I got started things started to happen. However, I've still managed to blog and tinker with my beloved E36, HeLLga. I saw this monster making the rounds on the web and it had me wondering how many owners take a retro classic and shoehorn...

    Hi Guys, I’ve not had this car (53 316i e46) very long and have had a few problems with it. While having a look at the fuse box in glove compartment I noticed a few of them are the wrong size fuse. No 49 (window lift front) has a 30 amp but it should be 5 amp but when I switch them over I get...

    Ok so i recently bought the M sport bumper for my standard 318 2006 model. Ive already swapped over the inner arch plastic covers on both sides, and the bumper fits in perfectly. It came with all plastic mesh inserts and fog lamps included (it was a complete bumper) The trouble is the...

    I have a 1997 BMW 318i Convertible. I bought it as a fixer upper. The engine light, ASC and ABS lights have been on. The engine codes were for O2 sensor and PO500 Speed Sensor. I have installed a new O2 sensor so that code is GONE. I cleaned the differential speed sensor (The Speedo has always...

I thought that this would not be an issue, but after a few months of driving it it became a real problem for me. Im am a driver, and i had a drivers...
