Question about Cars & Trucks
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.

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): http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=ET37&mospid=47720&btnr=32_0957&hg=32&fg=20
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.

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).
