In Reply to: Recommendations for splash guard replacement? posted by JeffM3 on May 19, 2001 at 03:37:52:

Had my car about 3 weeks, and tonight I got off the freeway, after going only 80 or so, and heard this scraping noise.

I knew of this problem, so I had an idea of what was wrong. Still, not a good sound to hear! At any rate, I looked in the archives and found the JTD replacement, but it doesn't look like the piece that came off my car. The piece that feel off is wide and pretty deep (high).

Are there more pieces than this one? Maybe something else came off while driving that I didn't notice...

Anyway, help is appreciated.


When at dealer recently I saw well over half of the several M3's they had with some sort of problem with these panels (scraped badly, hanging down, missing fasteners/screws). One of the first things to check when buying. Also, I do not think it's something many dealers look at or fix during CPO process (although they should).
