    hi everyone, i have just perchased a e36 328 coupe which is a twat to get in gear! i have owed a e30 325i, a e36 318is, a e46 320d and this 328i is doing my nut in. it is a twat to get in gear if you dont get the revs right, sometimes you have to switch off to get a gear and start again and now and again it will still pull when foot hard on the clutch. biting point is normal and no slip. there is noticable vibration though cockpit about 2500 rpm clutch in or out and no miss fire. what is the cheapest way to sort this out? i have tools and am machanicly minded, thank you please, Tim from taunton.

    Clutch master cylinder? Check for fluid leaks, not had this on my e36 (also 328 coupe ) but had it on my e30.

    You need a clutch slave cylinder mate, n\s of bell housing with 2 13mm nuts, use a bleed bottle to bleed it, problem solved.
