Question about 1997 BMW 328

A/c gurgling while accelerating...why?

My 1996 BMW 328i makes a gurguling noise when the a/c is on espicially if I am accelerating?. If i turn the a/c off the noise goes away... the a/c is blowing cold and holding charge, but does not blow out very hard... but the worse part is the gurguling noise it is making. Do you think the compressor needs to be replaced or is it related to something else specifically like a clutch? would it be safe to go with a remanufactured compressor and what should I expect to be done and cost? Thanks,

What is the unlock code for a 1996 BMW 328i radio

If you cannot find the code written on something in the glove box, you will have to remove the radio. Once removed, you will need the serial number off of the radio chassis. You can call BMW with this number and they will give you the code.

Hope this helps!

Gurguling sounds from AC when the car is shut off

Check your coolant level ( do it when engine is cooled down ) If anti-freeze is low, you get air bubbles in heater core making gurgling noises.

1996 328i lights not working

Do you have to pull something to turn on your headlight?
If yes, then don't pull it all the way back. You can pull that thing three time.
first pull will make you speedometer and all other things glow
second pull will turn on the HEADLIGHT
and the last (i.e. the third pull) will make your High Beam turn on
Hope this help, I have a 1996 BMW too.
