2004 BMW M3 Problems
A fluid leak may develop from one or more power steering hose. When a leak is being repaired, it is not uncommon for multiple hoses to be replaced.
During tight, slow speed turning, a rubbing noise can sometimes be heard from the rear of the car. This noise is likely coming from the clutches in the limited slip differential. If the noise persists, the differential fluid can be replaced with a special oil available from BMW. On higher mileage vehicles, this noise may never be eliminated unless the differential is replaced.
2004 BMW M3 Questions
Can a faulty tensioner cause the alternator to fail.
No radio, I think it is a fuse
First time my BMW is off the service plan from when I bought it. Now I need to get the oil changed and am wondering what requirements I should have for the service station that does the work. How do I ensure they use the same stuff a dealer would without having to pay what the dealers charge?
