Did you see the compressor kick in? If not, I'm thinking your car doesn't have any refrigerant in it. If they put the gauges on the system and it didn't register anything, that's a pretty good sign it doesn't have any refrigerant in the system. If your car has completely lost its charge, this means there has been a catastrophic failure somewhere in the ...

There is no search feature on the 2005 BMW 320D Touring OEM stereo. As well, when selecting a playlist you cannot browse individual songs as you can if you select songs and browse through them.

With BMW's it used to be that the last two numbers represented the engine size. Sadly on newer cars this seems to have been abandoned so it is no longer a valid way to tell. You'll have to do some research based not only on the model but also the year the car was manufactured. This information is generally available in publications such as Parkers or ...

Kaseys answer sounds right to me. There is a sensor, that indicates the vehicles inclination relative to the road (I don't know how to call it either, in Germany we simply call it "headlight leveling sensor"). That sensor needs to be replaced probably. I'd just like to add two pictures, so you can see how the sensor looks like: Image source: e46-forum.de

These have dynamic adaptive control or some sort ( not sure of the terminology) but there is a module or sensor connected to the tie rod near one of the front tire most probably on the left tire. It looks like a little box fixed to some immovable part and has a handle attached to it which moves based on the tie rod and sends a signal back to the module in ...

If the sound gets louder and higher pitched the faster you go then that would suggest that your wheel bearings have been damaged. That might account for the vibration but I doubt it, more likely you have an unbalanced tire or some play in your suspension/steering linkages post-accident. Replacing the front left bearings might clear up the noise and ...

Really it's impossible to tell from the pictures, it could be an old leak or it could be recent. As it is obviously not a big leak you're best bet would be to clean the area so it's clear of oil and then see if you get more oil. If you do, you know you still have a leak, and cleaning the area will help you trace it back to the source.

According to the interwebs, P115 is "Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor Circuit 1 Malfunction" (https://www.obd-codes.com/p01-codes). I'd start there. Make sure the sensor is reporting realistic values, i.e. ambient temp at cold start, slowly rising to operating temp of 80-110C (not sure what your vehicle normally goes to). If everything looks good, reset the ...

Just in case anyone comes across this in the future. I was told repeatedly by the garage, the insurance company and an independent inspector that my car was "fine" and I was imagining things. What I would say is be persistant, it's your car and you'll know how it felt before the accident and after. Ignoring the idependent inspectors decision I took the car ...

According to the OP's last comment, the rattle was due to a broken crankshaft. I will add one thing though. When I was a kid, my father had a '91 Mitsubishi Pajero that suddenly had its crankshaft snap in two. He was able to drive it to the dealership with a rattling noise that was present regardless of clutch position or RPM. With regards to the OP's case,...
