Fitting BMW 3 series centre console?
In BMW 3-Series
Depending on what year the model is, the installation can be hard or easy. if its an older car, installation will be easier, because you wouldn't have to deal with too many wires, and electrical things. if its a newer model, however, it will be harder because there would be more wires to deal with.

yellow cicle with three lines each side is brake pads' orange triangle with exclamation mark within, with surrounding arrow is asc, the stability control.
I believe that the late-eighties/early nineties 3-series 4-cyl engine design permits an "airlock" or air bubble to lodge in the water jacket after collant has been allowed to drain. This airlock prevents circulation of coolant in the block, raising the block temperature rapidly after starting. Becau…se there is no apparent loss of coolant, the source of the problem is not at first obvious.. My only solution is to remove the upper radiator hose from the radiator and insert the tapered end of a wet/dry shop vacuum hose. With the engine running and the thermostat and the radiator filler cap open, turn on the vacuum to draw coolant out the upper hose while simultaneously pouring in coolant through the fuller neck. This while take an indeterminate amount of time. The main thing is to not let the coolant level in the radiator fill reservoir drop.. Anyone else have this problem? ( Full Answer )
need special tool, or go to dealer The inspection light indicates the need for an oil change or other part of the BMW maintenance schedule. The light needs to be reset when the maintenance required has been performed. This can be accomplished by jumping certain holes in the diagnostic plug in your… engine compartment depending on the year.

The battery is located in the trunk under the mat to the right of the spare tire. It sits under a plastic cover which is easily removable by pushing in the center.
I believe it is Cinco de Mayo, by Golden Triangle. Which commercial exactly? I the last one it's a Billy Idol - Dancing With Myself
open the glove and look in there are 2 white tabs twist them and the fuse box will come down.
the bonnet has two catches it will be the one on the right as you look at the car that's stuck its a pain but to release it you have to go up behind the bumper and the grill and release it by hand it is a bit of a fiddle
I had this problem, too. I called my local BMW dealer and they did not have a solution other that to schedule a service appointment. I also called BMW Assist, same answer. I solved it myself by pulling out and reinserting the fuse for the "telephone," which on my vehicle was the second one from the …left on the bottom row, 5 amps. The fuses are located in the top of the glove compartment and are accessed by turning the two white tabs at the top of the compartment. The fuse block folds down into view. There is a fuse removal tool and a diagram. You will have to pull out the diagram to read the whole thing. Find the one labeled "telephone." -Rich ( Full Answer )

Although the year, specific model, and engine size is not stated in the question, here are some general guidelines: All the 4 cylinder BMW 3-series (318i, 320i) had a timing chain. From 1984 to 1991, the 6 cyl (325 series) had a timing belt. From 1992 and up, the 6 cyl (323, 325, 328, 335 seri…es) had a timing chain. ( Full Answer )
Good question. Well there is a few ways.I wont go too much in detail.I'm assuming you know a bit about cars. You can buy a tool for it which will run about 200 bucks. Or you can by a haynes book,and it will tell you how to make a template.First you got to get the number one piston at TDC.get you a b…reaker bar with i think it's a 22mm deep well socket. you will need a second eye for this job if it's your first time. take the number one spark plug out(first one from the timing chain). get a long enough screw driver that you can touch the piston with. turn the crank with the breaker bar,with your help watching the screw driver.Once the screw driver cant go up anymore that's it you are a TDC.A good way to know is you will hear air out the spark plug hole once it gets close to tdc,that's with any car. There is a square thing at the fire wall side of each cam shaft. They both have 2 dots on the same side,you will notice those dots will be facing up. really it would be about a 45 degree angle. And the outside sproket on the passeger side cam(exhaust) has a arrow that will set at a 45 as well. This is for camshaft removal and installation. Your cam tool or template from the haynes book will let you know for sure if it's in time. I don't know what step you are in,so i started from the tare down. BMW is the most fun to work on.

Officially 8.0 seconds for a 2.5 litre manual transmission. I think you may be quicker than this if you hold out in second gear.
How do you tell if your 1997 BMW 3 series has ABS brakes. no light on dash . don't know if faulty or even fitted.?
Ha Ha! The easiest way would be to check your manual. However if you don't have one you could also do a brake test by stamping hard on your brakes (Obviously when nothings beind you) If the wheels simply lock up then your car doesnt have the privlage of ABS. If you feel a 'rumbly' sensation from you…r foot brake pedal and the wheels don't lock up under extreme braking then you most proberly have ABS fitted. Here are a few safer options: . Take it to a garage and get it checked out althought it may cos you will definitely have an answer. . Take it to a BMW dealership and ask one of the mechanics just in passing if your make does have ABS or even the Parts Section of The Dealership (Shouldn't Cost you a Penny) . Get yourself to a Auto Parts Centre and ask them questions about the breaks of your car they will be able to tell you if it has ABS (Shouldn't Cost you a Penny) . Do some research on the internet with regards to the make and model of your car. This will definitely not cost you anything other than your time to research it. ( Full Answer )
You do not specify what year. With the air filter on the E36 (approx 1992-1999) you must remove the glovebox. After the glovebox is removed you will see the air filter on the left side (on an RHD car)
no, because the rims have a special number on it that says what it fits, but the 3 series probably says 3 and the 5 series probably says five. Trust me ive had a 525i BMW before If its just the tyres you should see the size written on the side ie. 205/55R16 or 224/45/17 if this size is the same …on both BMW's den the tyres will fit just fine ( Full Answer )
The fuses on a BMW 3 series can be changed by using a special fuseremoval tool. It resembles a pair of rigid tongs with a lip at theend to grip the fuses during installation and removal.
Has the car got the on board computer with the screen and the clock on the right of the screen?. If so I'm pretty sure you hold down the clock button and use the 1000, 100, 10, 1 buttons to set it. Ignition might need to be on.
No. 3 series cars use high offsets, while 5 and 7 series use very low offsets.
To do this you have to break your ignition make the car unusable until you get that fixed i think a tow truck is a better idea Also if you own a BMW join bmwcca and theyll give you free towing for 25 miles
Open the glove box door and there will be two tabs at the top of the opening. Turn these tabs and the fuse box will drop down.

The BMW 5.4 v12 will not directly fit into a 5 series, due to the larger overall size and weight.
Sokething like $275-800 but since you dont know then for you$275-$400 for parts. Add labor probably $300 more so $700 total.
Early models it is in the bumper skirt on the drivers side. Look for a small hole. It has t 2 wires and fits facing the front.
only the 325is has the ability to turn the tsc off with a button, however you can always pull the fuse but this will also disable abs
The size of engine depends on the model, some had the 6 cylinder 2.5 or 2.7 liter and some had the four cylinder 1.8 liter motor.
As you are facing the open hood, look on the top right corner. You will see a small box, open it and you will see the fuses in their slots.
The fuse box for this vehicle is in the engine compartment on the drivers side very near the firewall.
Yes, BUT you would need the seat module also. don't know if it can be wired(easily) to work.
Many BMW,s use Special tools...But also is the Motors complex and offer very little room to get in and change out parts...Parts are reasonable as long as u dont get them from the Dealer....
