My old blue :)

Want someplace to tell about all the plastic parts you broke doing your interior swap? Or what about the pics of your foot after you dropped your transmission on it? Post up the epic project threads here from all the days you've spent working on your E36.

OK fellas I need some help or advice.

First the blower motor tweets on fan setting 1 and 2 how do I fix that and how long does it take to fix. E30s are a whore and just dealt with it.

Second I got new bavauto ultimate rotors for the rear just waiting for some cash for hawk pads to install.

Second thing I changed my diff fluid cause I think it was low but the rear end would whine. Well it still whines but not as much maybe I need yo put more fluid in?


Last when I brake I feel like only the front brakes are working. If I pump I feel like the car slows down better probably master cylinder? ??



The e30 and other peoples cars have been taking up alot of my time btw I got a small sponsorship from mishimoto :) ill be on their web page soon! !

when you mean it tweets do you mean it sounds like a cricket? if so your only 2 options would be 1) replace the blower motor or 2) turn the radio up.

Rotors = badass, are the drilled or slotted or did you just get OEM replacements?

Maybe get a higher viscosity oil for the diff? I dont know to much about diffs and their oils but maybe you need a thicker type of oil.

I have no idea how to fix the last problem.... weird. How did you get a sponsorship from mishimoto?!?! i want one!

yea it tweets im thinking of spraying some white lithium on the wheel where it meets the shaft atleast thats where it tweets from on the e30 no they are the crossed drilled and slotted one.

i built the e30 to go fast and they liked it car ran a 12.6 at 114 last time at the track trying to get in the 11's soon.

Diff fluid: use 75W-90, preferably Red Line. Drain it, insert the lower plug, then fill it until fluid comes out of the top plug hole. Don't use more than that, and if it still whines, it's another problem. Keep it up, man!

what about the braking issue? the whinning has seem to gone away i definitely waited too long but thats my fault and my crazy schedule.

plus its leaking so it was also low now that i think the discs are fully covered all is ok and drifts amazing again :D i was babying it with the noise not any more lol

Fixed the blower motor followed the tis spaghetti website and it was pretty straight forward. loaded it with WD-40 and no longer squeels i didnt have any silicone so i shall see how long it takes for it to come back took me about 1-2 hours to complete from start to finish.

will be ordering the hawk pads tomorrow. and trying to install them before the weekend but we shall see. working on getting a second job to support my race car dreams

So im doing some rear subframe and suspension revitilzation. And heres what im ordering to save some one else some time cause this took about 4-6 hours of research

From EAP (European Auto Parts) because they had the lowest price on these three items)

BMW Trailing Arm Ball Joint Rear (E36 E46) - Lemforder 33326775551 $36.99 X4 $147.96
BMW Control Arm Bushing Rear Upper (E36 E46) - Lemforder (OEM) 33321092247 $13.99 X2 $27.98
BMW Control Arm Bushing Rear Lower - Lemforder (OEM) 33326770824L $11.99 X2 $23.98

From AKG because I love there front control arm bushings
Differential Mount Bushing Set for BMW e36, Polyurethane 75D #DM36 120.00
Rear Subframe Bushing Set for BMW e36 (not 318ti), Polyurethane 75D #SF36D 190.00
Rear Trailing Arm Bushing Set for BMW e36, e46, and Z4, Polyurethane 75D #RTAB36D 85.00

That should be all of the bushings in the rear
