On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

Just a thought, behind the front bumper are the securing hardware. Bumper needs to be removed so you can access the fasteners.

Cant find the intake camshaft sensor on my 2001 bmw 325ci convertable

Use you VIN number to find out the engine and wiring specs. M54 E46 is just a body code. Engines has variants too.

Bmw 318i e46 n42b20 showed engine light with a p1159. It reads fuel trim.additive high.baknk 1. The throttle is also nt stable it rises and drops. What could be wrong.

Hi it seems like an air leak in the intake manifold. Check all the vacuum lines around the throttle body and the brake servo line. A small leak will cause the throttle to fluctuate, and also affect the fuel trim. You may also need to clean or replace the throttle body. Good luck

Hi, i have a P0444 code which i was told it is a fuel tank vent valve and the part# is 13-90-7-618-643 from BMW which i purchase from there parts department. The question is were does it get installed on...

from BMW forums: "... replaced the EVAP purge valve (a.k.a. fuel tank breather valve) on my 2002 BMW 325i (E46). As I did it, I discovered that all that needs to be removed is the air filter housing in order to get access to replace the EVAP purge valve. It turns out that I didn't have to loosen the power steering reservoir retainer and move it out of the way. There is enough slack in both fuel breather hoses that you can slightly unhook the purge valve from the mount and slightly pull it out from under the engine intake manifold."

2) valve steam excessively worn
3)plugged drain back holes
4)engine oil being blown ut past the intake manifold gasket
5)punctured automatic transmission modulator diaphragm
6)oil viscosity is too low.

Where is the starter located on a 96 bmw 328i

The starter is located under the intake manifold here's a pic with the manifold removed.


To remove the starter there are 2 options remove the intake manifold or remove the transmission.

Where is the starter located on a 03 325i BMW?

Tucked snugley beneath the intake manifold on the driver side (US) of the engine. I have not yet replaced one on an e46. Bosch starters on small engines generally last a couple hundred thousand miles.
Based on the way it looks and my experience with the previous generation of 3-series BMWs, replacing it will be a real PITA. If you pay a dealer to do it, be ready for a bill on the order of $1000. If you pay an independent shop, I would guess you will pay around $700. If you do it yourself, be ready to remove and replace your intake manifold, which is no small task on an e46.
The starter itself is about $250 new or $150 remanufactured.

Where is the coolant temperatue located on a BMW

The engine coolant temp sensor is in the cyl head that tells the computer the engine temp.

Where is the crankshaft sensor on a e46 318i

the crankshaft sensor is located under the starter motor, you will have to remove the air intake manifold to gain access to replace the sensor, if you are not sure how to carry out this repair it would be better to get a local garage to do it, regards mark
