Very difficult, you must obtain all the parts from a manual trans car, Transmission, Drive shaft, bell housing, clutch, flywheel, pedal assembly, Then you have the problem of the computer .. everything on a 2002 is computer controlled. You will find it very difficult just to install the pedal assembly. I would not do this change over unless its a race car and i could cut away parts that are in the way. Best answer is to get rid of the automatic car and buy a Manual car. I have a 95 325I with 308000 and it still has the original clutch in it.. You did not tell us why you wanted to do this change? I suspect the trans has a problem and you do not want to rebuild it. So Another problem you might look at is the trans shop is not telling you the truth. a speed sensor will make these cars not shift or shift improperly.. Check all the sensors first. These are normolly very good trans you might consider installing a used unit from a wrecked car.

SOURCE: 2003 BMW 325I Power Steering

when looking at the engine with the hood up, look to the right hand side for something that looks like this (#1 in the pic):

it will be black in color, but don't confuse it with the oil filter housing. power steering reservoir will have a unique cap (#2 in the pic) that can be removed with your hand. the one that has the large nut on top is the oil filter. remove the cap and put in the correct fluid.

hope this helped.

SOURCE: check engine light comes on but car runs great 2002 bmw 325i and

The check engine light could be any number of things and the only way to find out is have the codes scanned. The brake light issue is common on E46 3 series. It is an issue were the brown ground wire that goes into the lamp housing melts at the connector causing a loose ground connection. The connector needs to be replaced and also add additional grounding wires to prevent further issues. And for fuel additives either use the cheveron techron, or the bmw fuel additive(the bmw stuff is the exact same thing, so just use which ever is cheaper).

Where is the filler cap located in my bmw 325i 2002 model

Your question did not specify what "filler cap".
The above response from FTjoe is for the power steering filler cap.

The following RealOEM link is for the engine oil filler cap (Item 4) which is square and black and is on top of the engine. It goes through the plastic cover into the cylinder cover

The engine oil filter housing cap (Item 3) is shown below:

Bmw 325i 2002 automatic convert to manual gearbox

It will take time and some mechanical skills . You will need a clutch pedal and bracket, master cylinder and slave cylinder and hose, flywheel and clutch pack, throw out arm and bearing, hole cut in the floor for the gear lever, all the insulators and rubber boots, possible a different rear engine mount and cross member, wiring harness for the reverse switch and other switches on the gear box, probably a different length drive shaft, switches for the cruise control operation. Everything can be obtained from a BMW wreckers and a good workshop manual will be a good investment.

My 325i 1992 automatic transmission seems to be slipping and i want to know how to check the fluid level

The 3 series does not have a dipstick in the engine compartment. It is similar to a manual transmission and should have filler/level plug on the side of the gearbox casing.

Hi I'm looking for an exploded view of the auto box on a bmw 325i se 1994. It's a type Z i think. Thanks TPJ

The 1994 325i automatic transmission is the GM made 4L30E (if the car is a US model). BMW calls this the A4S-310R.

You can download the 4L30E section of the Transtar catalog, which shows the parts diagrams. You can order any of these parts through Bavarian Autosport at
