hi markjones, the ignition switch can usually be removed without too much disassembly. First you will need to remove a plastic screw in the upper and lower trim covers. Seperate the covers. You should see a black plastic ring around the mechanical switch. gentley remove the ring. Next remove the rubber o-ring/band. With the key in the iginition and turned to almost to position 1, insert a heavy duty paper clip, or bmw special tool (about $30 from the dealer) into the small hole in the switch. There is a cam in the hole that needs to be twisted clockwise so the cylinder can be removed. When installing a new switch make sure to remove the little tab pice of metal that usually breaks off in the housing. Also be sure to make sure and reinstall the rubber ring/band because they are part of the ews system. If you key turns continuously, or is not able to be removed, the ignition housing and cylinder both will need replaced. Replacing the lock housing is about a 2 hour sequence and can be challenging. I would recommend a shop for that kind of repair.

Bmw 316i se 2003 1.9 from time to time when i deriving my car the engine cut off and it takes me around 6 to 10 minutes to start again


I would look into your fuel relay. This is a symptom of it going out. If I am reading this right. As you are driving your vehicle all of the sudden stops and you have to coast to a stop. It then takes some time to get it to start again but turning over fine. If this is the case then what I said should be it.

Drivers window on e30 bmw 316i touring goes down but not up.can i put the window up manually?


Not without disassembling the door. If you are handy you can take apart the window switch and clean it. If not try spraying compressed air into the switch. The switch is likely dirty.

Key is broken in 316i touring lux 1993 ignition how do we get the barrel out and do we need a replacement steering column also


alot of times a broken key may be removed by a torch tip cleaning file. this can be had at most hardware stores. its rectangular and when opened has a lot of little round files in it. find the file that will fit in to the key slot snugly and push it in then slowly pull it out. this may take some expermintation with sizes and techniche but i have removed a lot of key stubs this way.

Radiator removal BMW 316i


hi, the two clamps that secure the radiator have a small slot on the top, if you insert a small screwdriver into the slot and use it as a pry bar you should be able to unclip the holding clamp and it then releases like a hinge.
