the starter on this car is difficult to get to. its located under the back of the intake manifold. its bolted to the car by two torx bolts through the bell housing on the transmission (if you look under the car at the trans toward the engine its the upper left of the bell housing). also you have cables that go to the starter, if you can sneak your hand up underneith the car up along the bell housing and try to unscrew them, there a 10mm, 8mm and 13mm nuts, however that's very hard to do, i suggest taking out the airbox, and all airtubing that goes to the throttle and then sneak down from the top of the engine to loosen the wires, then sneak the starter down the bown the side of the trans, or at this point once its loose take it out anyway you see fit. hope this helps
The BMW m52 has a timing chain not a timing belt. there is no maintenance on the chain it is made for the life of the engine.
The BMW E46 M3 was first launched in Germany where the first BMW E46 M3 was built. The BMW E46 M3 was first introduced in October 2000 and was produced from 2001 to 2006.
The M52TUB28 engine fitted to the 2001 BMW E46 328i produces 193 hp / 142 kW at 5500 rpm.
Timing chain. All E36 and E46 models use a timing chain.
There is none. E46's were updated in 2001 and 2003.
I have had two BMW cars one e46 and one e36 both 328 engines the e36 ran well over 200k before I sold and only did to get an e46 the car was running perfectly, the e46 well in to 180k and again upgraded to a 330 ci currently with 200k on the clock runs perfect
yes, but you would have to get an m3 subframe to go with it...LOTS of $$$
if your butt is itchy then yeaa
The only place you will ever need for detailed schematics for ALL parts in the BMW E46 www.etk.cc
40nm + 90degrees +90 degrees.
E46 is the chassis identification code that BMW uses internally to distinguish between its production cars. Basically the E46 was the 3-Series BMW produced between 1998-2005. This includes all the variants, displacements, and trim levels.
I belive it to be built into the fuel filter on the e46
The BMW E46 has a maximum speed of 155 mph when electronic limitations are placed on it and 192 mph when there are no limits. These are the European specifications.
What year is car but almost certain its a e46 model cheers jinxy
Behind the glove compartment!
no! you people don't know your cars
Inferior technology is only used on inferior cars. BMW stopped using belt timing in the early nineties. They all have chains.
The fuse box on a BMW e46 is located just below the steering column. It is positioned beside the hood release and is readily accessible by the owner.
No the camshafts are chain driven.
on the tip :P
