NEWBIES please read - An awesome resource

I use NEWBIE in the subject freely because I am very much one myself. Many times I have wished for better diagrams or pictures of 2002 parts (than Haynes provides, for example).

In addition, many posts on this site have attachments of just those diagrams and I have always wondered where they came from.

I finally located the document in freely downloadable PDF format. It is the official original BMW parts catalog for all '02s. It can be downloaded from this site:

http://www.thetiiregister.com/phpmyfaq/index.php

In the upper right hand corner is a reference link to the "Original Parts Catalog" and when you get to this page you'll see the cover. Click on it to view it live or right click your mouse to download the file.

It is a bit challenging to read at times (knowing fluent German might help!) but the diagrams and part numbers of every knob, screw, bolt and part for your restoration project is listed.

One tip..... After a given diagram there is the parts list with part numbers and German part names and these are correlated to the numbers on the exploded diagrams. But following this is a chart with the parts numbers again and the English names.... but no correlation to the exploded diagram numbers.

So you need to find the part number you are interested in using the first "German" chart and then find that same part number in the "English" chart to figure out what the exploded diagram part is called in English OK... that probably confuses things more than necesssary, but you'll figure it out !

Glad you found my pdf donation to this site....

FYI, to clarify, the english parts lists exactly matches the german one and the numbers on the diagrams... you just have to scroll back and forth a bit because the numbers are not listed again in the alternate languages. But the 5th part in the german list = 5th part in the english list. No guesswork here.

I'm sure when it was in the microfilm format (this was scanned from a mobile tradition reprint from around 2000), it may have been easier to read.

realoem and bmwfans do not include all of the parts for '02s. Many of the parts have been deleted from the databases that they use! Many BMW dealers do not even have the original orange books that these PDF files were created from or have access to them. So us the lowly '02 fans have better tools to determine the correct part for our cars than even most BMW dealers do! There are exceptions though... I know for a fact that Weatherford BMW in Berkeley have and use an original set of the '02 orange parts books.

I use BMW's ETK program RealOEM, BMWFans and Maximillian Importing's http://www.bmwmobiletradition-online.com site on a daily basis, but still refer to the wonderful PDF files of the parts manual from the Tii register when those databases fail to have all the information I need.

Bob Murphy worked VERY hard in getting BMW to allow us the free use of the archival records of the complete original 1502-2002turbo parts manuals. I just wish I knew how to get the ones for the 1500-2000tii Neue Klasse BMWs!!!

The 1700+ pages of '02 parts PDF files are not available anywhere else but from the Tii register.

Granted as in any document there are a few mistakes but that's why the 2002FAQ exists, a collective knowledge base to help any '02 fan that needs it, worldwide.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
