My F30 issues

Hi bros,

Just to check if you guys have any similar issues with the ones I'm facing... Not sure if it's "normal" or not. Am going to sound them out when my car is up for its first service @ PML.


1) Driver seat squeaks when going over bumps/ humps / unevenness roads

2) When turning the steering wheel full, there's a "tightening" creaking sound. Feels as though it's coming from the strut mounts.

3) Air con damn noisy ... Sounds as though it's "exhaling" out cold air in periodical "breaths"


Am driving a 328i Luxury.

Thanks in advance for bros comments

Weez bro, so pml recognized its a defect ah? I was wondering if those people will argue and state that it's normal and all the other nonsense haha
 
Re: My F30 issues

The QC manager has tested my car and says he can help to minimise the squeak in my seat, but will need to dismantle and find out the root cause next week.

Bro, I wish I have a 328 like yours.

Ah ok noted weez! Thanks for your input hor. At least I know it's not just my ride that have such squeaking sounds.

What's your ride bro? For me I wished I went for the sports line instead of luxury haha. But ok la . Still sheer driving pleasure
 
Re: My F30 issues

I think sports and luxury should drive the same, only the interior trims and external panels are different.

Mine is 320 base. No navi one. Should have bought something nicer.... very regretted

For 3. - maybe it's the springs ..... Spray some lithium grease there - no harm trying.

I may have the same issue too. Mine is more like the sound of two rubber hoses rubbing each other when I turn the steering wheel. Will get it checked at my next servicing. If anyone finds out anything, keep the group posted!

Cheers!
 
Re: My F30 issues

Hi,

I have the problem of the steering wheel too! Plan to bring in on my first servicing.

The sound goes like a faint tick tick tick tick as you turn the wheel to the max.... irritating and unsettling feeling... esp in the stillness of the night reversing into carpark space.

keep this solution posted!
 
Re: My F30 issues

So at the end did anyone managed to solve the creaky seats problem? Damn irritating ... Hahahha
 
Re: My F30 issues

Hi anyone has this single knock sound after the auto start stop resumes after engine cuts off?. The noise is at the front panel nearer to the passenger side. This sound will not happen when the auto start stop function is switched off. Am driving a 316i.
