SOURCE: 1994 BMW 318i where is the fuel pump relay

Under the hood on the driver's side is the fuse box. Outside of the main fuse box is the relay box. It contains 3 relays. The first one on the left is the fuel pump relay per my repair guide book, closest to the front of the vehicle.

SOURCE: rear wheel bearing shot on a 1994 bmw 318i is this

Its not so bad - however you will need the proper puller and small race tool (if the bearing separates).

They can be rented at a parts store relatively cheap.

Here is the procedure so you can determine your abilities...


The wheel bearings are only removed if they are worn. They cannot be removed without destroying them (due to side thrust created by the bearing puller). They are not periodically disassembled, repacked and adjusted.

  1. Remove the wheel and support the car. Remove the attaching bolts and remove and suspend the brake caliper, hanging it from the body so as to avoid putting stress on the brake line.
  2. Remove the setscrew with an Allen wrench. Pull off the brake disc and pry off the dust cover with a small prybar.
  3. Using a chisel, knock the tab on the collar nut away from the shaft. Unscrew and discard the nut.
  4. Pull off the bearing with a puller set such as 31 2 101/102/104 and discard it. On the M3, use a puller set such as 31 2 102/105/106. On the M3, install the main bracket of the puller with 3 wheel bolts.
  5. If the inside bearing inner race remains on the stub axle, unbolt and remove the dust guard. Bend back the inner dust guard and pull the inner race off with a special tool capable of getting under the race (BMW 00 7 500 and 33 1 309 or equivalent). Reinstall the dust guard.

To install:
  1. If the dust guard has been removed, install a new one. Install a special tool (BMW 31 2 120 or equivalent; on M3, use 31 2 110 or equivalent) over the stub axle and screw it in for the entire length of the guide sleeve's threads. Press the bearing on.
  2. Reverse the remaining removal procedures to install the disc and caliper. Torque the wheel hub collar nut to 210 ft. lbs. (290 Nm). Lock the collar nut by bending over the tab.

Hi there.
Well because its a auto box you could have a band or pump problem which is in the gear box and is bathed in auto matic fluid oil and that could be your problem as the bands do wear down fast on a lot of cars and BMW with there power that could be you.
So take it to a auto box people and get it checked out.

Please could yu tell me where the transmission inspection plate is located on a BMW 318i SE Automatic 1998


What's a transmission inspection plate, and what are you inspecting.


Ok, I'll guess you want to know how to check the transmission fluid? How do I know this.....because I can mind read. I also know this because there's no dipstick of any kind to check the fluid level. So, what else is there you want to check on the transmission. color?--it's silver.

Where do i find the transmission dipstick at


There isn't one. To check the transmission fluid level there is a plug that you must remove.The fluid should be to the level of the threads.

no checking the trans fluid. There is a drain and fill plug. Jack up the car, keep it level, at hot temp, remove fill plug, if a little fluid comes out, it is at the correct level. know the difference between the drain and fill plug. the fill plug is higher.

Check the transmission release bearing and the gearing of the transmission check if you need to replace the release bearing.

Where to put in the automatic transmission fluid


I own a 1994 BMW 540i with an automatic transmission. The filler hole/plug is located under the transmission oil pan. Picture in your mind an inverted cone with a hex plug inside the top of the cone. You will need to remove the plug and pump fluid into the pan until it overflows. Also, this must be done with the engine running and the transmission in neutral.

Do not try this unless to you have the proper equipment to raise your car, keep it level, and have four jackstands in addition to the special fluid and pump.
