    535D surging 1-2K

    HI, My car has developed an issue of surging, I noticed it a little while ago while I had cruise control on it and was jumping maybe 100rpm, I have done a lot of research and a lot of things point to the transmission, It has had a fluid and filter change in the past 5k mines to try and resolve the issue but this made no difference. I have since read that if it was the torque converter I would not feel it, but I can feel this surging. The gear changes seem to be fine, quick, does not get stuck and does not keep changing. This issue does not happen above 2000 RPM However, today when I started the car I noticed that the idle was rough and though I would rev the car between 1 - 2k RPM, between 1-1.5k it is very rough and between 1.5-2 starts to smooth out, once at 2k the engine is buttery smooth, I have no fault codes that I can relate to this but do have INPA if any additional data is needed. if anyone has any ideas would be most grateful Thank you

    Steering rack what do I have/do

    Hey yeh it sounds very similar to that noise. I do use chf it says it in the cap but thought they all did. Tyres are up to pressure and have be changed also while having the instability with no difference made.

    Steering rack what do I have/do

    At slow speeds it handles fine but does sound like there is a knock somewhere, I cant for the life of me think where though as it's all new nearly. I have had the car 2.5 years and it's always been like that, it could just be the fact its m sport and it's a really firm ride. It's my first e60 so nothing to compare to.
  6. Hi all, I have a e61 535d 2008 and I'm having steering issues that I think are related to the steering rack. The problems I have to start with is a fluid leak, I have checked all the hoses and in the boots and they are dry I think its leaking from where the colum joins to the rack. 2nd is that at speed the car feels very uneasy and there seems to be plau in the steering, all control arms, track rods both inner and outer, hubs shocks and too mounts have all be replaced. Lastly today when turning the wheel to the right there is a metalic "Ting" sound its loud, I haven't had chance to get under it and have someone move the wheel while I listen but can only think of the rack. I have also re torque the star bolts on the colum where it meets the steering wheel and the rack. Due to these faults I think its time to look for a replacment rack, however I'm not sure what one I have, and searching via real oem proves to be no help. I think it's just the standard on but due to having sports transmission it firms up the steering so not sure if this affects it. Any help to any of these issues much appreciated. Arron

    rear wheel alignment issues

    I have just driven the car to work and found that now ever since this was done there is a knock/creak coming from the rear. Urgh i could kill someone. I need the car for next Friday and this was meant to be the last job that needed to be done.

    rear wheel alignment issues

    Hi all, just fixed one problem and another starts so it seems. I have done a lot of suspension repairs and its was time to get it all nicely linked together, but oh no nothing is every as easy as it seems. These are my before and afters on the wheel alignment. When the guy was doing the adjustment he said it wasn't making a difference when he was turning the nut, then on closer inspection it looked like the sub frame was deformed. see left, then on the rear the nut wasnt moving when turning the bolt. does this mean that i will need to change the whole rear subframe now. to fix this or is there any other way? Thanks

    The noise is most defo from the front, I have had my old man in the car listening for it while driving and is almost 100% in the location of the front wheel.

    Electrical noise/alternator whine radio

    I have the basic audio but with pro nav + 6 cd changer. I do have a USB connection in the centre console but nothing is connected to it and im still getting the issue, The audio is terrible for such a expensive car off the line, i took the low frequency from the under seat sub and ran a extension to the boot where i used a hi low converter. same with the 2 door speaker and roof speaker. This has however been reverted back to Stock ATM bar door and roof speaker while trying to diagnose this issue. Thanks
