Am i missing something from my engine bay??

Hi Guys

i have had my car with BMW service three times now since i've had it (7 months 10,000km) because of a ticking noise in the morning....

they have changed

- lifters
- cylinder head

and they have had BMW Australia's service manager come and listen to it too?? but still not fixed.... still makes a noise.....

I just go it back the other day and noticed this ..... am i missing something ??

i drive a 125i coupe sport MT ..... My dad drives a 325i coupe sport auto and he has some small bottle attached ????

im a little worried right now

It looks a LOT like a fuel pump (obviously not a fuel pump but really does look like one). It is in the exact same position than in a WRX too, as i remember having to unplug my fuel lines when doing some mods a few years ago and having to plug the pump as well.

Very interesting, i'd call them and ask, or send an email with pics.

ncutinelli - that thing you circle in your picture is in fact the PS fluid resivior.

In the link I postes it shows some sort of retriangluar plastic cover. I have never seen that before.

Why not just use a flash light and poke around under your hood some? Can you see that PS resivior hanging and flopping around? :")


Btw... on my 135i the PS res is located behind the drivers headlight area. This would be covered up by your intake/filter.

Perhaps they forgot to fit this on cars with electric power steering.

Cheers,

Looks like the power steering fluid container... Maybe it is in a different position with different year models? As someone mentioned in the 135i it is located behind the passenger side headlight.

All of the 135i drivers are thinking it, so I may as well say it. Your car is missing this:



Sorry, couldn't help myself.
