My girlfriend just bought a 2005 BMW Z4 2.5i. There is a definitive 'popping' noise vcoming from the engine compartment and wheel wells in the front of the car whenever she goes over speed bumps. I believe that the struts need to be tightened down, as this is a common problem for this model. I am told that this is an easy fix by simply tightening down the bolts at the top of the struts in the engine compartment. My question is... do I need a special torque wrench to do this and how do I know I am tightening them down to the right setting on both sides?
Your reply is appreciated.
have the same problem?
