Rear brakes on my BMW Z3 2001 have locked


It sounds like you drove it in the rain and parked for a while. I doubt you have damaged anything but why be so bold. Remove the rear wheels and hubs so you can inspect the brakes.

You will have to replace them. I recommend every time you do the brakes if not sooner. I just replaced mine on my 2001 325I. Go here www.bavauto.com These guys are GREAT!

Bmw 320d e46 2001 orange brake wornin light stay on replaced brake pads and installed new sensor in front back sensor looks ok


the way to reset the brake light is to turn the key to "on" without turning the car on. Let it sit there for 15-30 seconds and the light should go off by itself. If not, double check how you have the sensors hooked up.

Removing and fitting a new gear knob bmw e46 318i man trans


Hi joserosa if this is a manual gearbox you just have to grip the gear knob and pull upwards until the gear knob is removed, the same principle is applied for a auto box but hold in the release button while removing, regards Mark.

BRAKE WARNING LIGHT


I dunno if this will work on your BMW, but on my BMW Z3 and M3, it was....

Turn the ignition key to position 2, but do NOT start the car. Wait for about 45 seconds and the brake warning message will be reset.

If it doesn't reset, then the brake sensor was damage. You will need to replace the brake sensor. It sounds like you replace the brake right after you saw the warning, so the brake sensor should be okay.

BRAKE WARNING LIGHT


Its not an electrical problem . . .. . When you change brakes you have to change the brake sensor as well. . . . . It just looks like a piece of wire with a sensor that clips onto the pad . . . . .Normally it is the outerpad. . . I cant tell you on witch sides its on cause it may differ from model to model.

Its not going to be a hazardous to the car the brake light will just keep burning.

If you replace the sensor and t he light does not stop burning it may be that your front brakes are also worn but remember just as at the back there is a sensor at the front.
