  1. 540i gearbox grumble?

    E39 5 series Forum
    Hi newbie here, I should probably make a thread on my project daily 540i but this is more important right now My 97 540iA has decided to develop a grinding noise when under loading. When you put your foot on the accelerator at cruising speeds there is an awful grinding noise from the...

  3. M5 is howling a bit at speed

    M5 E39 and E60 tips & tricks
    I've been researching this issue like crazy for the past two weeks and I can't put my finger on it. I've got this weird groaning/howling noise that comes up on the M5 around 40mph and up and it seems to sound the loudest around 55mph. I replaced the differential and transmission fluid yesterday...
  4. 06 m5 e60 s85 strange engine noise

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    2006 BMW m5 e60. 79,000 miles I was doing some mid to upper level rpm runs, no red line or even close. Slowed down and started hearing a ticking. Limp mode within minutes. Limped home, and turned into a knock, barely enough power to go up the hill to my house. Did take it to an Indy but they...

  6. Weird noise upon turning to the Right only

    E34 M5 Discussion
    I have had a weird noise coming from the front of the car only upon turning right. It sounds like a hum, or a bad wheel bearing and comes from the front and is directly affected by the speed of the car. Therefore, if i am turning right and driving slowly, i may barely hear it or not at all...
  7. Strange squeaking noise

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    So I'll get right to it. There is a strange squeaking noise coming from the front of the car that occurs only when I turn the wheel to the left. It starts at about 1/2 turn and continues almost to lock. During normal driving it rarely happens because the wheel is rarely turned that far, but when...
  8. New Member - Two Problems

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Hello, about two months ago I bought my first ///M car and second BMW and E39. I have been lurking on this board way before I got my M5 just to learn about them. But now I have two problems, an annoying whine and squeaky brakes. The whine: It is audible at anything above about 30mph with no...
  9. Intermittent start up squeal: starter dying?

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Did some searching on "start up squeal" and "starter squeal" and the discussions were inconclusive. I'm at about 67k miles, and sometimes I hear a squeal at start up. Not tied to cold starts, either. It's a more mechanical squeal sound, vs. just a belt screech, and seems to coincide with what...

  11. Mysterious Noises...Help!

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    After 6 months of putting up with the following noises, I'm determined to figure them out. I've searched the old threads and found a couple other guys who've complained of these issues as well, but it doesn't seem to be common and a solution was never posted. Hopefully, somebody will have some...

  13. e39 M5 2001 Engine/Transmission whine (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UogsLfQLv3s)

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    My beast has developed a whine under half to full throttle. Does anyone have any ideas what it could be? Maybe it's sprouted a supercharger over night?! I don't think it's an issue with the engine, there is no whine when it's revved out of gear. Excuse the rubbish recording... YouTube - E39 M5...
  14. My M5 Goes Wrup Wrup Wrup

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Hey gang, I wanted y'all to see if you could help diagnose my problem. Instead of trying to meticulously explain it, I posted a video on YouTube. Basically though, while accelerating I get a "rubbing" or grinding noise right around 2k RPM in low gear. <object width="425" height="344">...
  15. Dashboard knocking/rattling

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    My car has 98K and change, and for the past 6 months or so had a knock coming from the dash area when the car goes over bumps or uneven payment. After removing the center vent and the instrument cluster it seems to me that the knocking is actually the plastic inner structure of the top half of...
