Andres Alba: Hey man my 96 740il clicks but still starts if I jump it or sometimes just turning the key a couple times but it makes a knocking noise any idea what it could be?
Curtis Dudley: Is this at all possible to don on 02 745li without taking everything under the vehicle apart?
Lision Murray: i have a bmw 740il 2001 my car starts and then shuts right back off, what could be the Problems
john vorobyev: thanks for the video ! i changed the valve cover gaskets, spark plugs and pcv diafram in the back of the manufold after starting the 99 540i up it instantly stalled and wont start up again all i hear is a click and it wont start anymore
bimmermerchant: Hey Clay,
Its our pleasure.
Clay Davison: Thanx for the video helped me a lot knowing where the bolts were. A little tip for others turn youre wheels to point left makes for a little more room with the e39.
HolyShitAccess: I know I'm 1 moth late but Very nice Job. I was considering this work myself. Literally was trying to figure out what was wrong with my BMW and came to the conclusion it was the starter. But, what I didn't know is that the a Fuse had blown but looked perfectly fine from the outside. Ended up going to a mechanic with the car on a trailer just to have him yell at me it was the fuse. (More of a friend)
HolyShitAccess: Thanks for getting back to me so fast. Now I know what to do if anything happens. (Car currently will not start, No crank. 740IL 01)
bimmermerchant: Good Job, changing a starter is one of my least DIY projects. Thanks for sharing your experiences.
Danny Rodas: no man...i just drove my car onto ramps so i could get under it....it's a pain in the butt but it took me around 2 hours to do it....not bad considering it was the first time i attempted this.
HolyShitAccess: Did you have to take the engine out? Do you have to?
Danny Rodas: it actually went better than i expected....that top bolt is a real pain in the butt to get out but i did...the only problem i ran into is that the site where i ordered the new starter sent me the wrong one so...my e38 is just sitting there waiting for the correct starter to come.
bimmermerchant: One of the harder tasks is locating the bolts so you are half way done. Just make sure to disconnect the battery, you don't want sparks flying and make sure car is not hot. Straight forward task. Good luck and let us know how it went.
bimmermerchant: That is a tricky job because of the limited space you have to work with. You will need lots of patience
Ryan Sheffield: ok is a tricky ? how hard is it to chage the exhaust gasket. im needing to do them cyl 1-4.
Danny Rodas: Im about to change mine.....now i'm a little scared lol......you're video helped me locate the starter. I'll get back to u with the results
