e36 sub frame!!! Who can competently weld it?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I noticed a clunk in the drivers side rear wheel last night. I was dreading the possibility that the sub frame had torn out. Well, I just came out from under the car and the drivers side sub frame mount is no longer attached to the body. The car is now beached until repairs can be made.

Who in the Montreal area can repair this and not charge an arm and a leg was the question?

I've had this car since April and it was never wintered, 175000km and I'm the 3rd owner. I've spent a $1000 in the last 4 months on the A/C and various minor maintenance items. Guess, I'm back to my Honda until this repair gets completed.

I met with a guy that can fix my cracked rear subframe mounts and he's local. Will be able to get it fixed in a week when my rienforcement plates arrive at BMW.

See his website http://www.pmiracing.com/

Real nice fellas!!!!

I did a more intense inspection and took some pics for those who wonder what the hell we are talking about.

The front passenger side is cracked and pulled out and the rear drivers side is also pulled out. Thats why you get the clunk when you clutch.

It all starts out as a clicking sound as the front passenger side mount fatigues and then pulls out transfering the load to the rear drivers side mount. When the drivers side mount pulls out finally you get the clunk during shifting. If you don't get it fixed you could be in for a horrific surprise as you leave your diff and rear wheels behind you.

Don't wait!! Get it fixed!!

that's fucking rusted out... you'd have to weld a new piece of metal in there and recut the holes for the mounting plate.

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.
