1998 Z3.. Manual Trans shudder under acceleration in 2nd gear as it nears 2000 rpms, then goes away as it approaches 2500 rpm's.. Any suggestions?.. Thanks


It could either be the flex disc or drive shaft center bearing. I had the same problem on my 98 Z3 and I replaced both and it took care of the problem.

Are they easy to fit diy bmw z


Not sure about the bmw specificly BUT it is indeed hard, you need special tools and it's best left to a pro who will no doubt charge 1000 or more dollars to replace the convertable top.

Convertible cover for 98 bmw what is the part number or what is the proper name for the part that holds the covertible top down


How about "soft-top covering" 54318412054 in black.
Go to realoem.com and click :Enter"
Put in the info for your car (I guessed).
Find the section that has the part you want, "Folding Top Mounting Parts" for example.

Z3 Convertible top - seems to be a common problem


In general, without any testing or diagnosis, you could be dealing with any of the following:

* Open relay - Located at the pump unit
* Close relay - Located at the pump unit
* End position micro-switch
* The operating switch itself
* An issue with the pump unit, but I doubt this, due to the intermittent nature. However, do check the hydraulic fluid level.

The windows do not have to be down for the system to run.

The brake pedal must be pressed while operating the switch. There is a switch at the pedal that signals the convertible top system, but if your brake lights are functioning, the brake switch will not be at fault.

The system is pretty simple and some quick electrical tests should locate the faulty item.

The Bentley repair manual for the Z3 has all of the electrical wiring diagrams, for use in the diagnostics. You can purchase this at Bavarian Autosport 800-535-2002.

1999 BMW M Roadster/convertible top will not retract


I bought my Z3 used from a Cadilac dealer, and nobody could figure out how to put the top up or down. It turned out that you have to apply the brake while you move the top up or down.

Automatic convertible top won't open? Is there a way to disengage it and open manually or troubleshoot the problem and fix it?


Check all your fuses there must have been a cut fuse that is not enabling power to reach it.

I cant get the convertible top to close. I just bought the car and it will not close. Is there a switch somewhere that I could have pushed unknowingly? Is there a fuse that could be blown?


Make sure you are pressing down on the break.

Also, to get the top to open you have to pop it up a bit manually. Then hold down on the break and press the button.
