Question about 1995 BMW R 100 R

1 Answer

Front wheel nois

Bmw r 100 r alot In all weather except ice. Some times I hear a noise coming from the front wheel it may just be the sound of the wheel cutting through the wind but I am just concerned bearings are new (according to seller of bike) no woble everything up front is tight. I can still see a bit of blue grease in the seam between wheel and bearings so could it just be the sound of the rim cutting through the air?

Yeah, warped rotor will make a noise. So will brake pads that aren't going back into the caliper like they should. I never saw a 90's NH yet that hadn't warped up the stock rotor. I put a floating rotor on my '92 NH 750 so that it wouldn't warp again and get noisy. It was also cheaper than another Honda rotor. Simple bolt-on fix, just don't forget to use some Locktite! As for the caliper, I've never worked on one.

Hello, I havent driven my toyota for 3 weeks because of the snowy weather and when I drove it yesterday I could hear a cracking noise when I was moving the steering wheel left and right. what that could...


Possible that the ice formed on the linkages are breaking up , possible that the links have got tight, the pneumatics have tightened. This is extraordinary weather and the fault might clear once the mechanisms works for some time.
If however you notice there is any change or concern in the steering or movements of the wheels , then you MUST jack up the car to have a look at the front suspension/steering sections.
Hope the weather changes for the bettter.

ck for excessive play in the electric cooling fan blades - theses usually only come on when the car is hot or ac is used. You can also check this by locating the fan relay(s) and removing them when you hear the noise.

Rear wheel nois


How old are the bearings, milage- and age-wise? It probably won't hurt to replace 'em, anyways. There are only a few things at the rear wheel that would cause a scraping sound: wheel bearings, final drive parts rubbing on the rim or swingarm or the braking hardware. Give each of those a very good checking.

2001 325i problem


If it's a regular noise that gets faster as the car is rolling faster, then chock the front wheels, jack up the back of the car, spin both rear wheels and see if you get the sound.  You may be able to pin point the location this way.   Sounds like it's somewhere in the drive train and you'll be able to hear it by spinning the wheels or the driveshaft, but if not ... you will have gotten some much needed exercise jackling the car up and down ;~).  

Since you bimmer is rear wheel drive (more of a rarity these days) you have Universal Joints (U Joints)  that connect the drive shaft to the transmission and the differential.  When these go bad (100-150K or when the car is close to 10 yrs old) they will make clicking noises, later clunking noises and finally no noises or horrendous noise when they break ... but they will make noise for 10K miles first.

You might have to crawl under your baby and turn the drive shaft and pull push it at both ends to see if you can find play in the U Joints if you don't hear the noise at one of the wheels.  

If you're clost to 150K, I'm betting on Ujoints or one of those fancy German rubber center driveshaft mounts.


Good Luck
