ECS Tuning: BMW Automatic Transmission Service DIY
Automatic Service Kits Available At: http://www.ecstuning.com/?utm_source=Youtube Over the life of a vehicle, the transmission can often be overlooked when performing routine maintenance. If left unserviced, the automatic transmission fluid will break down, causing the valve body and filter to become contaminated with deposits and sludge. This will lead to poor shifting, slipping, and ultimately transmission replacement. This tutorial is provided as a courtesy by ECS Tuning. Proper service and repair procedures are vital to the safe, reliable operation of all motor vehicles as well as the personal safety of those performing the repairs. Standard safety procedures and precautions (including use of safety goggles and proper tools and equipment) should be followed at all times to eliminate the possibility of personal injury or improper service which could damage the vehicle or compromise its safety.

Need additional tech help? Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- In this DIY and How-To video, we'll outline the procedure for properly using the control arm bushing remover and installer tool for removing or installing the front control arm bushings on BMW 3-series models from 1984 through 2005. One of the most common sources for front-end vibrations on BMWs and MINIs is worn front control arm bushings. If all other front-end suspension and steering parts are verified to be in proper functioning condition, it is likely that the control arm bushings have become soft and are allowing the suspension control arms to oscillate, causing the vibrations that can be felt through the chassis and the steering wheel. Replacing the control arm bushings on the 3-series BMW models from 1984 through 2005 (E30, E36, E46), can be accomplished by most DIYers in just a couple hours .... If we have the proper tools. In addition the a floor jack, jack-stands and common metric tools ranging from 16mm through 19mm (in most cases), we need the control arm bushing removal and installation tool kit. In this DIY we will show how to remove and replace the control arm bushings on the BMW 3-series models as noted above, using the control arm bushing replacement tool set. Note that we will be installing the pre-assembled control arm bushing and mount bracket assemblies. This will allow us to replace the bushings without access to a hydraulic press. TOOLS: Control arm bushing removal and install tool: http://www.bavauto.com/fland.asp?part=kt20249 Bentley repair manual; as applicable to BMW or MINI model: http://www.bavauto.com/se1.asp?dept_id=5228 ½" drive socket set, to include; 16mm through 19mm sockets (depending on model), ratchet and extensions. 24mm combination wrench 27mm combination wrench or ½" drive socket Pry bars PARTS: Control arm bushings with mount brackets, as applicable to BMW or MINI model: http://www.bavauto.com/se1.asp?dept_id=162 This general outline for 3-series control arm bushing replacement assumes that the proper Bentley repair manual is at hand. PROCEDURE: 1) Lift and properly support the front of the vehicle, so that the front wheels are off the ground. 2) Remove the wheel/tire assembly. NOTE: Some models may require removal of splash panels or shields in order to access the control arm bushing mount brackets. 3) Remove the rear control arm bushing mount bracket by removing the two bolts securing the bracket to the vehicle. Note the position and overall relationship of the bracket and how it is mounted to the uni-body frame rail, for the future re-installation. 4) Use the control arm bushing removal/install tool to remove the bushing and bracket assembly from the end of the control arm pin. 5) Press the new bushing/mount assembly onto the control arm, using the bushing removal/install tool. Note that some urethane bushings may not require a press for this operation. Note that rubber bushings require a lubricant to allow them to be pressed onto the arm. BMW specifies a special lube that dries after assembly .... we like to use Silicone spray, diluted dish soap or hair spray as alternatives. Take note of any alignment marks, as well as the proper orientation (left / right and front / back) of the mount bracket. Most of the applications will install with the mounting arm, on the mount bracket, being parallel and in-line (on the same plane) with the forward end of the control arm. 6) Install the bolts for the bushing mount bracket and torque to specs (see the proper Bentley manual). 7) Replace the splash shields and the wheels/tires and torque the lug bolts to the proper torque spec. Lower the vehicle. -------- All products noted in this video can be purchased in our online store, http://www.bavauto.com/, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

How To Replace Brake Fluid - EricTheCarGuy
As I said in the video I've been asked about this video for some time and I was happy to get the opportunity to make it. Now that I think about it however I did not address ABS systems in this video however the Subaru used does have ABS. For the most part, you can replace the brake fluid and not have to worry about the ABS, however in some cases you might need to bleed the system with a scan tool in order to get the brakes to work properly. Be sure to check the service manual of the vehicle you're working on before committing to bleeding at the wheels. If you're just removing the fluid in the master cylinder, you should not have to worry about the ABS at all.
