my passenger side wiper arm wont go all the way down to the cowl its up about 5 inches when in the off postion, apon inspection it seems that the arm was loose, the shaft that goes through the cowl all so moves, it is not tight like the driver side. I pulled the cap on the arm thinking that the nut was loose but its very tight, how do I expose the linkage? should the shaft that attaches to the wiper arm be loose? the wipers work fine with no issues other than the passenger arm not returning all the way down,but i can push it back down and it will stay....

Both power lock and Hazard flasher buttons do not work when pushed. Fuses are good. Doors lock work with key remote only. Is it coincidental that both buttons do not work? Do both switches go to the Locking System Central Control Module Unit? I located it behind the glove box.

I am having a problem with my alarm on the key, it won't work. Sometimes the passenger door wont unlock when i put the key in the door (now I have to manually lock/unlock my doors) i notice sometimes the alarm activates and doors lock w/my key but it's more seldom now. Any thoughts?
How much to replace front bushings?
I am having a problem with my driver side power lock on this car. It will not UNLOCK using the interior switch or the key pad. When I press either one of the buttons the UNLOCK NOISE occurs but the lock remains in the locked position. I can manually unlock it by inserting the key into outside key hole or by pulling the handle. The mechanism will LOCK when I press the master LOCK button on the key pad.
So this is weird to me in two ways: 1. It makes the noise to unlock (sounds like it should be working) but does not 2. The locking portions still works.
I am not sure if this is a broken part or electrical short/problem or possibly a programming issue. (These cars have way too many "custom" settings.) I hope it is not a difficult fix. I do have an extended warranty that will cover it but I would like to avoid the deductible.
I hope this problem is described clearly. Please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need more information.
Thank you for all your help in advance.

I just bought a convertable 325ci, on the way home from picking it up, it died on the highway. We had it towed to the nearest BMW dealer. They diagnosed it with a bad battery and alternator. Car only has 11K miles on it. I was quite upset since I had just purchased it.
Anyone else report this problem?

I just had my crankcase ventilation system replaced (e.g., hoses, valves, etc) on my 2004 325Ci (BMW) as it was getting a "lean" code. However, my car still shakes periodically when I drive it at either lower or higher speeds. What could this be about?
