  1. BMW 5 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E12
    Hi All, I have a 2011 5 GT Xdrive 3.0d, with FDSH and 140,000km. Over the past 2 months, I have noticed a whine from (I presume) the autobox, and it only happens on lift off, decelerating from 90kmh to 70kmh. Any clues to what it could be? AFAIK the autobox oil hasn't been changed, but it is...

    Since having the car (about 3 months) there’s been a slight whine noise at idle. At first I didn’t suspect the power steering pump as there’s a receipt for it being replaced only 6 months ago. But today I discovered that the noise completely disappears if I very very slightly turn the steering...

    Got an annoying pulley whine on my e91. More noticeable in when revving it up, don’t really notice it on idle. It’s the older m47 engine. Is there a common pulley that goes first on these engines? Idler? Alternator? Crank pulley etc?

    I took my car into the garage because I'd noticed a mechanical whine noise getting louder over the last 6 months, turns out they think it's the rear diff. They advised that I trade the car in as a diff from BMW is £1300 plus labour to fit. Has anyone else experienced this? Not really sure what...

    OK so I have a 320d with 136000 miles on the clock, and the turbo was changed, along with the vortex filter by BMW at approx 60000 miles. It is now making a loud whining noise, from around 2000rpm when I accelerate and on the overrun but not when at constant speed. It sounds like the noise her...

    Evening all, Looking for a second opinion on a recently purchased M3, noticing under load i'm getting a high pitched whine, i'm guessing it might be a worn belt/pulley tensioner, I've attached an audio clip to help. https://instaud.io/j4G This happens only when i'm accelerating from a low...
