Question about 2005 BMW X3 3.0i
I have a clicking noise that is under my car. The fastr the revolution the fastr the noise, the slower the revolution, the slower the noise. It stops when the car stops.
It sounds like you have a rock or something stuck in the tread of one of your tires. Take a look and see if you find anything, then dig it out with a key. If it looks like something punctured the tire (it could be a nail in the tire) don't take it out (the tire will deflate) , take it to a tire shop and get it fixed.

Do you hear some faint rumbling or moaning while going straight? Do you hear it louder in a right turn than a left (or vice versa)? If so, you likely have a wheel bearing problem. Let me know when/where you hear the noise, and we should be able to localize it.

replacing the complete lock set with the EWS control unit can be expensive as the control unit will also need to be programed and/or encoded, however if the lost keys cannot be found and you are sure they cannot be used to steel you car you can just order replacement keys from your local bmw dealer. hope this is of some help. You will also nead to disable the lost keys if you order replacements rather than a complete set.

On the instrument cluster in the center there are two buttons (clock and s/r) .Press and hold the s/r (i think thats whats on the button) and turn the key to the first position. at first it will say TEST in the cluster. keep holding the s/r button and it will flash to your SIA (service meter) release the button and press and hold until it says reset (or reset flashes) and then press again. just play with it im going off of memory. just dont be afraid. as usual im sure your local bmw dealership would be glad to help

usually noise complaint can be pretty tricky to repair. especially if its intermittent. since you say it only when its cold my first guess would have to be a wheel bearing. some other things you can check is how the tires are wearing. when you rub your hand along the tread is it smooth or does the tread catch your hand. if your tires aren't wearing smooth noise complaints can be heard while slightly turning, braking, or even accelerating.also if its a wheel bearing you can lift the vehicle up in the rear (turn off your dsc) and run the rear tires up to speed. usually you can hear a loud wheel bearing. also you can drive the vehicle and swerve back and forth and see if the nosie changes. depending on which side of the vehicle suspension is being loaded

Hello, this noise may be a stuck or warped lifter. This also can be a warped wrist pin or a thrown bearing. I would check and see if your oil is sludgy for a lack of better words for starters. I would check your oil level as well. Your valve lash can be off as well and this can be thrown off by this causing the ticking noise you are talking about. Is the noise coming from the top or the bottom of the motor. I hope this helps. Thank You.
