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.

SOURCE: To convert 325i automatic transmission to manual

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.

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

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.

Automatic gearbox out of order. Oil black and burned. I will shift to a new one. Do I need to shift the torque converter as well?


if i was you i would change the torque converter its the safest bet, the box must have been very low on oil and maybe slipping for a time to burn the oil black!!!
however you may still get away with cleaning the internal filter and just flushing the old box out with ATF and refilling it with fresh ATF oil
yes,,its been cooked up, but mine still worked for years after i cooked it up and it changed much smother after that too??

I think you have the wrong clutch housing installed or the flywheel spacing from the block is wrong. When the switch was made to manual from auto there should have been something fabricated to shim the starter into the correct alignment with the new flywheel's ring gear the same as it used to align with the flexplate. Good luck with this one
