  1. Auto Electrical Forum
    Hi guys Had my 335i for a couple of months and run into an odd problem which I can't solve. The car drives & shifts perfectly in D & S (automatically or using the paddles) but the gear knob acts strangely. I can change up & down by knocking the shifter, but once I've shifted down (2nd to 1st...

    Hi guy, just a quick one. Does anyone know what to do if your automatic shifter light flickers on the shift knob? Very frustrating! I know it’s on the display too, but when I comes to selling the car on it would be tough to explain! It’s on a 2015 125d M Sport. Thanks Andy

    Hello everyone. I swapped my M3 (STYLE) steering wheel from my old 335d pre lci and fitted it to my 335d lci. I have noticed that it now does nothing when selecting sport on the shifter and the paddles don't change gears. Anybody else had this issue or can anyone assist me? Many thanks

    Hi all, Not a serious issue (I hope) but really annoying. Since I have bought the car a good year ago the gear stick was vibrating. When I bought the car I took it to an independent garage which said that it's not a problem and since then I had a full service by indie garage and changed clutch...

    Hi all, after driving my recently aquired 330i auto a few times (in drive) ive noticed that it changes up gears later than i would usually change up in a manual. Under very steady acceleration it still doesn’t shift up until 4-5k rpm unless i momentarily lift of the accelerator. I completely...

    Folks I seem to recall that you can reverse two wires at the gear shift connector (well you could on my old X5) to change the sequential operation movement, so that you push forward to downshift and backwards to upshift. Does anybody know which wires you swap over and how to remove the leaver...

    Reviving a conversation as it's been a long time since anyone has posted on this particular topic- particularly if there are changes in available parts. I've been reading as much as possible to understand what would be an appropriate BMW short-shift solution for my car, which is the lesser-loved...

    Hi All, I have had my 320ci for just under 3 days now and the quality of the driving experience has exceeded all expectations. It is somewhat strange then to think that there is actually something bugging me with the drive and that is shifting up in the lower gears (1st-2nd,2nd-3rd). The...

    I have a 2005 325i BMW that I need to replace the leaking shift shaft seal. I purchased the kit 24501423606, but trying to figure out what the white part is for in the kit and how to use it (is it for removing the old seal)? Any advice or pointers would be appreciated! Thanks.

    Hi everyone! I wonder if you can help me. Since I bought my BMW I had an issue with shifting gears. I had changed the oil twice already - it has now BMW MTF LT1 and it's much better. However, when the engine is cold I'm still strugling to shift 1st, 2nd, 3rd gears - ale other seem to be fine...
