Hi All, im having an absolute nightmare in working out the fault on my gearbox for my 2011 520d m sport. Whilst driving the car flagged up a transmission fault and started to loose power. Limped it into the services. When they mechanic has run a scan its showing that its in 3rd gear when actually in neutral or drive. The car will not drive although when you give it acceleration the revs will go up even when engaged in reverse or drive.
Ive had various different opinions provided to me all of which differ. Im hoping someone has had some experience in dealing with such a fault and offer some advice.

Hello, many miles has the gearbox covered?

I would suggest taking the car to a ZF gearbox specialist

Aj Rose transmissions are worth a call as ZF approved and very helpful. Located near Mansfield. They might be able to throw some light on i.
cheers
