5th gear pin bush replacement?

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I have the problem where the gearstick stays over to the right....i did see somewhere on the web that someone did a how to with the gearbox still in place! But i cant see it anywhere...

Any chance anyone on here knows where it is?

Not heard of it being done when the gearbox was in place. My BMW specialist changed ours when the clutch was changed. He said it was a box out job

There are 2 tubes with indents in the box(that's the way it was described to me) & you need the box off & a BMW special tool helps do the job.

When my clutch was being changed by the 2 muppets at John Darby`s gaf in Banbury they failed to check this. It was only when the experienced guy checked it over he clocked it straight away! He even had the proper tools. Box was back on at this stage & I wasn't paying Johns "d**k Turpin" labour rates to take it off again!!! I can live with it!!!

Fell out with Darby`s after sending it in for a service. Same muppets didn't fit the pollen trim correctly or wiper trim. One good mechanic there who is fair & very knowledgeable but unfortunately he doesn't own it !!

I remember seeing said guide.. was a few years ago now but something about removing the gear stick from the cabin and replacing the bushes. Bit like fitting a short shifter

That is to replace a plastic bush which I did but its still a box out job if you are unlucky!
