How to change fuel pump in a 2004 bmw x3 3.0


You must remove the fuel tank to replace the fuel pump. This is no fun without a car lift and much heavy equipment is needed and a good amount of car repair knowledge and a full set of hand tools. If you have none or very little of the listed things then leave it to and expert.. DONOT USE ANY TOOLS THAT CAN SPARK.

I have a 2007 BMW X3 and it has 51,000 miles on it and the change the brakes pad light came on. Do I need to change it at 51,000 miles?


Yes. The light is activated by a sensor within the pad to tell if failure is in range. Depending on your driving habits you may have a few hundred miles of pad left, if you do not change them soon other damage can occur to rotors or calipers.

I need to replace the rear brakes and rotors on my 2004 Audi A4. Will I need special tools to do this? Can I still do the job without these tools?


'B6' (2001-2004) A4s dont have seperate rotors on the rear brakes like the pre 2001 A4s do. When changing the rear pads + discs the only special tool you will need is a caliper wind back tool. Let me know if you do also need to replace any ABS components aswell as I might be able to advise.

325 ci brake rotors have been replaced 4 times in 6 years


BMW rotors are not known for lasting very much more than 30-45k miles. When the brakes are inspected, they measure the pads using a special tool threw the outer brake pad. Min spec is 3mm. When the pads are replaced, they measure the thickness of the rotors. The rotor spec is stamped on the rotor. if they are under that spec, they recommend replacing them as well. Next time you bring it in for service, just ask them to measure the rotor thinkness, (its not a huge task, all they have to do is take the wheels off). But more often than not, the rotors wear just as fast as the pads.

How to replace front brakes on 2004 BMW 325ci


If it's like most BMW brake rotors you don't remove the center nut to remove the rotor. You should see a slotted screw in the rotor a couple of inches out from the center. Remove it and the rotor comes off. Might have to tap rotor with a rubber mallet but it should come right off.
