What gear oil should be used for a BMW Z3?

Assuming you are referencing a manual transmission, Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) is specified by BMW for Z3 manual transmission. Sounds crazy, but true. Full synthetic is also recommended. **Always check the owners manual before using any fluids**

How do you reset the radio code in a 1997 BMW z3?

If you mean to insert the RADIO CODE:

- the battery (on the car) must be charged or new;

- insert the key in the ignition and turn it on the first level;

- push the button ON/OFF of the radio;

- you will have 4 lines on the display;

- learn the code from the label you got together with the car's documents;

- push the buttons located under each line of the display, so many time until you get the requested number;

- after you have the 4 numbers on the display push the arrow "right" and the radio will start normally.

How do you install the rear window glass on a BMW Z3 convertible?

It is very simple, i replaced mine recently. it unzips from inside all the way round, then just zip in your new one. best if you have a helper though, it can get tricky to hold in place while you zip it in.

What is the exhaust bracket for a BMW Z3?

you will have 2 exhaust clamps on a Z3, one around the pipes which attach to the gearbox, the other attaching around the rear silencer to the underbody of the car.

these are very commonly worn due to rust from water exposure on the underside of the car.

These parts are relatively cheap and stocked at most BMW dealers

How do you reset the oil change light in a BMW Z3?

you will see a power connector on the side of motor it is cylinder shaped and inside is a pacman shape there is many connection pins but the two in the mouth are the ones you want. Take paper clip and with ignition in on position jump the outer pin to the inner pin and hold for a maximum of four seconds when you release it will reset the light .

Umm, that's too risky!!! All BMW's require a special tool to reset the Oil & Service (Inspection) indicators. The best one out there is the Peake R5 from www.peakeresearch.com. They are a bit pricey, but if your a do-it-your-selfer like me, it's a worthwhile investment!

Some may tell you that it can be done by pressing and holding buttons while turning the key to position 1, but it won't work!

How do you disconnect the battery from a BMW Z3?

Answer

After 1997, the battery is in the trunk. Lift up the mat and remove the two screws on the black plastic top then disconnect the black wire first then the red... lift battery out.... but if you have alarm fitted put your ear muffs on!!! Drop in voltage will trigger it. Undo long screw nearest to you that holds battery in place.

How many miles can one expect to get out of an original engine BMW Z3?

I have 146,000 miles on a 1996 Z3, all original, never did anything to the motor except oil changes and tune-up. Still runs great

A maintained 4 cylinder M42 engine should last well over 200,000 miles.

A maintained 6 cylinder M52TU/M54 engine should last well over 300,000 miles, and it's reasonable to expect many to see over 500,000 miles -- long past the expected life of the body.

The high performance S52 engine used in the "M" version has production-date-specific issues, has higher maintainence requirements, and will typically see harsher use. It may have significantly shorter life than the other Z3 engines.

How do you replace the emblem on a 2001 BMW Z3?

Answer
The procedure is really simple but be very careful. First get a straight pick and a soft towel, I presume it's the one on the hood, but the one on the trunk is done the same way. Make sure you have a new emblem and two new plasic inserts for the emblem. Now start at the bottom of the old emblem and work the straight pick in under the emblem and have the towel as close to the pick and the bottom of the hood as possible to prevent scratching. Carefully work the pick under the emblem and as far as you can, note the pick will scrape the paint under the emblem but since the new emblem will cover that scrape its ok. Now prey up on the old emblem and work the pick farther up and prey until you can grab it and pull it off, remove the old plastic inserts in the hood, and insert new ones, (you must use new ones) and press the new emlbem into place and you're done.

Or, to remove the old emblem, you can just get to the back side of the emblem on the underside of the hood, and then by taking a standard screwdriver or chisel you can break off the two plastic pins with a sharp rap. Then the old emblem comes off without worrying about scratching the paint, and the installation of the new emblem is as stated above.

The BMW z4 replaced the BMW z3 in late 2002. The BMW z3 was introduced in 1996 shortly after staring in a James Bond movie. Not as easy on the eyes as the z3 but just as nice.

1998 BMW Z3 3.2l V6 roadster manual trans upon fast acceleration initially revs high then recedes as engine comes under load any ideas?

Answer

Bad clutch

Try putting in "High" gear with parking brake on
Rev engine and let clutch out. If vehicle does not stall then clutch is slipping and needs replacement or adjustment

PS - It's a straight 6, not a V6.
