my driver side, and NOW passenger side windows are broken. The doors have been taken off and windows pushed up, its the little black plastic pieces that have broken (to pull the window up it goes down just fine of course) can i find those pieces anywhere? or do i have to have the whole thing replaced? i heard its very expensive, and this is extremely common for bmws

Went for a drive in the Cali mts last week with my automatic 2004 325i sedan. It has less than 53k miles on it. When I started it back up after a short hike, the engine light and another light (gear light?) was on.

When accelerating from 0-25 mph, the car struggled and just didn't pick up speed like a good Bimmer should(merging onto the 101 at a staggering 20 mph was fun, let me tell you!).

Took it into the dealer. They re-programmed the computer (just in case) and determined it was in fact a transmission issue (duh... as if burnt transmission fluid in there wasn't indicative enough).

Anyway, anyone else ever have probs like this with the transmission? Isn't this kind of strange for such low mileage?

When driving at different time the car will have a chime go off 3 times any idea what it means?

Every time I accelerate onto the freeway, the engine cuts out, EML light comes flashing on, and enters limpmode. It then runs rough and surges rpm's until i turn off car and then back on. Started after I was getting p0171 & p0174 codes. replaced vacuum hose, MAF, fuel pump, O2 sensors.

We checked the fuse that was not the problem. We used a voltage meter that measured 12 volts across it when the car was off. When the car was turned on and the power washer switch was turned on it had 31 volts. The pump (that is 12 volts) also isn't working at all. What do we need to do to fix the problem?

how to change fuel pump

the transmission shifts real hard andtransmission warnig light is on

I am attempting change the thermostat.

inside trunk release not working on BMW 325ic


How do I flush the a/c system? How many ounces of oil is needed after installing a used compressor that has been drained or after vacuum is pulled? How many ounces/cans of 134a refrigerant is needed to fill capacity?

I found someone selling this model. it had 164,000 miles on it which doesn't seem bad at all. I still have to look at the car but if everything looks good what do you think I should do? i just need a car for the next two years to take to school with me then I'm moving to the east coast. I know BMW's are expensive to keep up so do you think this one would cost more because it's older? I am really interested in a BMW and it's perfect for my price range!

Thank you!

The driver side door window worked and than just stopped working. Does it need a fuse or not? The passenger side still works.

I have a 2003 325i, and the passenger side only blows warm to hot air depending on the outside temp and the drivers side only blows midly cool air (cooler in the morning and evening when the outside temp isn't quite so high). Does anyone know what might be wrong, and how to fix it?

i just replaced the starter and its was running fine for a month but i went to start it 5 mins after i was driving it and the key turned fully but my engine didnt start. there was no sound or anything. i played with it a bit and then mt radio started to play. i took out my key and the clock and radio was still on. i hear that theres electical problems and ignition problems with 1994 bmw 3 series. is that my problem and how much is it going to cost?

I left my lights on my 1991 325i and had to call AAA. Since that time the radio is not functioning. It reads "CO:DE" on the display and beeps loudly when any button is pushed. How do make it work again?

where do I find fuse for cigarette lighter?

where is my battery located?

Completely filled windshield washer compartment, and it was completely empty after approximately 5 days. I never used it.

air conditioning on and no cold air instead hot air comes out, temp set all the way to last setting of 59 degrees.

So my radiator fan seems to be spinning all the time and spinning fast, from the time I start the car, until I shut it down. The engine is not overheating, no air conditioning is on. Does anyone know what is causing this problem? lazajac@gmail.com

How do I recharge my A/C? It's supposed to take R-12, but its not sold any longer. Do I just add the nipple adapters and recharge it? Which nipple do I use? The one on the firewall or near the radiator? Help?

My power windows won't roll down and my power sunroof wont open? It's not the fuse either unless there located in another place on the car. Help?

My car has no trouble starting, however when I take the positive battery cable off the car automatically turns off. I also just put in a new alternator. Does anyone know what may be causing this problem?

cruise control was working fine no problems at all but suddenly quit.

Car has obd codes-po171,po174,po300,p1083,p1085,p1343,p1345,p1347,p1350,p1352,it smogs black,white and blue smog-what is rong,what i have to check?

A red gear symbol indicating transmission problem comes on next to the gear select light. The manual says to shut off the engine, restart and the problem goes away. It has only happened twice in the last 2000 miles and only during long drives. It doesn't say anything more in the manual and I don't know if I need to change the filter or what? n.paustian@hotmail.com
