Hi joserosa if this is a manual gearbox you just have to grip the gear knob and pull upwards until the gear knob is removed, the same principle is applied for a auto box but hold in the release button while removing, regards Mark.

My bmw x5 4.4i has a misfire on low revs but clears up on higher revs. 2 of the plugs are wet when removed. any indication of what the problem can be?


if the plugs are wet it shows extra fuel is getting in. remove and check the faulty injectors and fit new seals when refitting the injectors.

Sometimes the R gear in my gear box dosen t work in my bmw ci 323 model 2000


hi. is this a manul shift trans?? if yes, then it is an easy fix. really it is. remove shifter knob and boot to gain access to the shifter assembly, you should be looking at the top of the transmission, remove 3 to 4 bolts holding the shifter in. slowly lift the shifter out of the trans, there should be a plastic "bushing" between the shfter and the shifting rod, its probably destoryed thats why reverse is hard to get, it adds more "throw" moving the shift rod of the trans more forward and firmly into gear.

How do i get my gear knob off bmw 325i


Some gear knobs have a set screw on them. Look at the base of the knob all the way around knob. If there is no set screw than it is on just tight with thread lock. You will need to use some force to remove. You also need to turn in a counter clockwise motion to remove.

My 1994 525 bmw, Auto/Man transmission started with when in reverse feels like slipping. A month later, car broke down while driving it won't engage any gears and manual says transmodule. Noticed that when...


no checking the trans fluid. There is a drain and fill plug. Jack up the car, keep it level, at hot temp, remove fill plug, if a little fluid comes out, it is at the correct level. know the difference between the drain and fill plug. the fill plug is higher.

Gear knob removal bmw 318 ci


It's very simple. Involves a bit of fore arm strenght.
It should pull straight off. Just put one hand around the gear knob & your other hand supporting or gripping with both.
Just pull straight up. It shouldn't need much force. A small amount of glue may have been used to help hold it in place.
The knob might come off leaving the plastic sleeve/insert in the shifter. Same again, just grip that & try pull it off. A vice grips should not be neccessary but if you need it be carefull not to apply too much pressure as you don't want to break the sleeve into pieces.
The new knob should have a sleeve with it. Normally it will be inserted & you should be able to just pop it straight on.
Make sure it's lined up properly. You probably noticed on the bare metal shifter that it has a notch normally running across from left to right. Well inside the knob if you can see in you will notice it has a plastic or metal piece that will fit into this notch. This is to stop the knob from spinning around or slipping!
Just push down on the top of the knob & try slide it over the shifter. It might not go down all the way with pushing so a few taps with you palm may be enough if you have big strong hands but if not be carefull & only use a rubber head hammer or something you can hold but won't mark or break the knob.
Put a towel or old t-shirt over the knob & use anythink heavy that you can hold easily with one hand & that has no sharp edges!
I don't think any glue should be neccessary but if you feel it needs a little & the knob is comming off or going on too easy then just a few drops on the sides of the bare metal shifter before sliding the knob back on should suffice!
Good luck!
