As long as it was listed on the replacement chart that it was the one for your car it should work for you, The only things that will have to be reset is your radio,clock, end the trip computer if there is one in the car,

Starter - Removal & Installation

The starter motor on some models is very difficult to see from the top of engine compartment as it is covered by the intake manifold. On these models, without removing the intake manifold, the starter motor must be removed from underneath the vehicle. Because the starter motor mounting bolts are not easy to access, a long extension with a universal joint mounted on a proper sized socket could be used. A three foot transmission extension is commercially available from tool vendors that has a 3 / 8 inch drive of the driven end and 1 / 2 inch drive on the drive end. If used with a non-binding impact universal joint and a proper fitting impact socket, the starter motor fasteners can be removed from underneath the vehicle.
Once the starter motor fasteners are removed, the starter motor may have to be moved side-to-side several times to loosen the dowel pin if it has corroded in place.

NOTE When the battery is disconnected, the radio code, on-board computer and clock settings will be lost. The radio code should be obtained before disconnecting the battery or radio. Once the battery has been reconnected, the radio will not function unless the code is keyed in.

M6 terminal fasteners: 53 inch lbs. (6 Nm)
M8 terminal fasteners: 115 inch lbs. (13 Nm)

  9. Remove the electrical leads from the starter motor and place aside.
  10. Remove the starter motor mounting fasteners at the transmission bell housing, then remove the two mounting nuts at the L-shaped mounting bracket.

SOURCE: How do you reset the motor and anything else?I

Happens alot. If you or someone pulls the interesting red strap under the rear seat, you have to do a reset. You have a small shot at just re-engaging the motors but will probably have to do a full reset. Take the back seat out and push lever back into the correct position. If you have a semi auto top (have to manually unlock top where it meets the windshield), lift the top back until you can pull up the back of the top to access tonnau cover. If it is a fully auto top, you have to pull out the cover at the very front of the headliner to access manual crank port. There should be a small allen wrench in the trunk tool box. You have to crank and crank and crank until the top is slightly open. You can then lift the back of the top to access tonneau cover. Both top types are the same from here on. Lift up on the tonneau cover and stow the top. Have a friend (or a heavy tool box) push down on the front part of the cover on the passenger side. You will hear a click. This will allow you to open the trunk. There are two motors located in the driver side rear quarter panel. You have to take out the covers hiding them. One motor is sort of in a horizontal placement under the pan where the top is stowed. Push up on this to re-engage. Other motor is in a vertivle orientation and at the driver side rear quater panel. You have to sort of grab the motor with both hands and pull it back into engangement with a gripping motion. Close the trunk. Push the switch to close the top (forward) and hold it down. Insert the key and turn it two clicks (accessory). After about 10 - 15 seconds you will hear the tonneau cover close and then open and the top closes. Let it cycle through and you are done. Hope that helps!

My bmw 328 I 2008 won't startno power


Your vehicle is now 5 years old so there is a really good possibility that the battery needs replacing. Try charging it and make sure the terminals and connections are nice and clean. If it won't hold a charge it's time to replace it.

How to Replace the thermostat on 2008 328i BMW


Take off the fan (32mm open wrench - Craftsman at sears). Fan nut is LH thread which means righty loosey, not lefty loosey!!!!. Radiator shroud and fan come out (and go back) as one unit. Take off the belt. Thermostat is directly behind fan. Have the new one first so you know what you are looking for. It is held on by 4 10 mm bolts. Do NOT use any gasket sealer. It will gum up the engine. The thermostat has a rubber o-ring. That's all it needs.

How can I reset the crankshaft position sensor on BMW 328i 2008


If you have replaced it and it is working correctly, you can just erase the code or wait for it to shut off once you have driven it for a few miles. if you erased / reset it and it comes back, there is still a fault.

I have 1996 Audi A6 2.8L V6. My battery is dying now. I checked amp and it was 250CCA which it has to be 650CCA. I tried to buy a new battery in the Walmart, but they said my Audi doesn't have vent tube....


If you car has been running without a tube then it should be ok without one. All the Walmart Store is doing is to cover themselves as well as sell you a more expensive one. I would shop around and get other opinions. I am not saying you do not need one but get other advice. Could save you some money. I had one store say that a certain part would not work on my Buick but another mechanic installed it and two years later it is still working.
