Cracking or Ticking Noise from the B-Pillar

E90 (3 Series)

Cracking or ticking noise heard from the left and right B-pillar area while driving.

Door lock striker connection to the B-pillar (front left and front right doors).


1. Mark the position of the door lock striker.

2. Loosen the striker bolts.

3. Slightly move the striker away from then back to its original position.

4. Re-torque the striker bolts to 18.5 Nm.

Note: Do not change the position of the striker (mark the position before loosening the striker bolts).


For information only.

Original TSB
Hi, sorry to be a bother, but is the striker on the door or on the pillar? I think it's draining my battery.

This Service Information bulletin supersedes SI B51 19 07 dated September 2009.

designates changes to this revision

Doors Will Not Unlock Using the Key Fob or Central Locking Button

E90, E91 (3 Series) produced up to 11/2008

One or more of the doors may not unlock when using the remote key outside the vehicle, or the central locking button inside the car. It is still possible, however, to unlock the door by using the key in the driver's door lock cylinder or by pulling the door handle on the inside of the car.

Typically fault codes A6D4 and A6D5 are stored in the Junction Box Electronics (JBBF).

This is due to a blown fuse in the JBBF caused by either:

An excessive amperage draw by one of the door lock actuators, which is commonly attributed to silicone contamination; or

An intermittent, but acceptable, amperage spike slightly above 15A, due to normal variation in the locking system.

Replace the fuse with one of a different rating.

Replace the necessary actuator as well, but only if it is drawing excessive amperage.

NOTE: Never spray any silicone products into the latch, as this will lead to premature failure.


Perform a vehicle test using ISTA.

Inspect fuse 57 (up to 9/07 production) or 73 (from 9/07 production) in the JBE.

Replace the blown 15A fuse with a 20A fuse.

Perform a function test by activating the door locks 10 times in succession via the central locking switch.

NOTE: The thermal protection will be activated after about 15 successive activations and does not indicate any damage to the system.

Carefully observe the operation of each lock actuator while it is being cycled. Lock actuators with some degree of damage will exhibit noticeable symptoms of this, such as slow operation, abnormal noises, etc.

If either one of the front door lock actuators is determined to be the source of the blown fuse, both front door latches (which contain the lock actuators) should be replaced per Repair Instruction REP 51 21 090. For this replacement, the door latch kit, which contains both the left and right side latches, must be used.

If either one of the rear door lock actuators is determined to be the source of the blown fuse, only that single faulty latch should be replaced per Repair Instruction REP 51 22 090.

If one of the front lock actuators and one of the rear lock actuators appears to be faulty, both front latches and the single faulty rear latch should be replaced per Repair Instruction REP 51 21 090 and REP 51 22 090.

If no faulty lock actuators can be identified, wait 2 minutes and then repeat step 4.

NOTE: If any door latches are to be replaced, the attached procedure should be utilized in conjunction with the REP noted above. This attachment will reduce the amount of time necessary to perform the replacement.

After the second functional test, if no faulty lock actuators can be identified, none of the latches should be replaced.

Convertible tension cords


Anyone know if there is a TSB on replacing the tension cords on the early E93 (2007) headliners? Haven't been able to find one so far, but, from other threads, I understand the cords have been updated.

Hmm, I don't know off hand, but you could start by looking on RealOEM to see if you can locate the part and see if it has an update.

Hi all. I would be eternally grateful if someone could post the full service bulletin 'SI B01 02 15', which as I understand is a bulletin regarding the N54 Engine Fuel Injectors, which provides a Limited Warranty Extension to 10 Years/120,000 Miles for the fuel injectors. I see some information from that bulletin posted on this forum, but would like to see the full bulletin.

I have a 2009 335xi that is not currently passing an emissions inspection... due to reported misfires on cylinder 3 and an associated faulty fuel injector. (New plugs and coils have been installed recently, so have narrowed down the misfire to the fuel injectors.) Based on my VIN number, the dealer is saying my 2009 335i E90 with a build date of March 2009 is not covered under this limited warranty extension. I am trying to plead my case with the dealer that I am facing the same issue with faulty fuel injectors as reported in the service bulletin.
