No, I don't think it would be possible. the engine casings are different as well as the transmission housings.

The gear indicator is via a switch or pot on the transmission depending on year etc.

You would be money ahead to sell your 1100RT and upgrade to an 1150 or better still a 1200RT. There are lots of 1150RT's on the used market for sale at reasonable prices.

Good Luck!

Advice required re: Manual Gearbox Problem - Clutch drag symptoms when changing from 1st to 2nd gear.


problems with a clutch system will result in grating first gear or reverse gear as the input shaft is still being turned by the engine. 2nd gear is syncro operated so any mismatching of gear speeds will be overcome by the syncro ring of the gears. By double de clutching you state that the problem is eased somewhat and this indicates that the gear box is at fault ( shaft bearings, syncro rings, gear teeth ) hard movement of the gear lever would indicate failed gear cable ,linkage or gear lever pivot problems. What you describe is a gear box fault. I would take it back and tell them to fix it or exchange it . Keep all records of conversations and dealings as you may have to get legal help to have the shop full their warranty agreement. Time to remove ,repair and replace a gear box would not exceed 12 hours in an accredited shop

What Gearbox should be in a 1991 BMW 525i E34


Hello,

The safest way for you to know which gearbox fits your car (second hand) you first have to go to a parts shop with your VIN and get the code and the model for your gearbox.

Don't just rely on car year and engine power.

Hope this helps

1996 bmw 316 1st gear popping out, how to fix transmission?


Salam Omar, When a gear pops out from the selected position it usually means you have a problem with the synchromesh clutch ring or cone inside the gearbox. The job you are thinking of undertaking is a very major job and one which technicians usually choose is to replace the gearbox. There are two different types of gear box used on BMW and if you want to carry on with the job you need to identify which of those boxes is fitted to your car. The one is a close ratio gearbox and the other touring. Let me know what you decide and we'll see where to go from there. If you decide on a rebuild we have a lot of work ahead. Shalom John

Removing and fitting a new gear knob bmw e46 318i man trans


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.

Trunk for 1150 RT


I have the standard trunk (supplied by BMW for 1150RT for a hefty price). Nice thing about it is that it fits nicely, has a backrest for the passenger and is very stable and strong. The poor thing about it is that it still will not fit a helmet. I suggest you also look at the GIVI trunk. I don't know how it will fit to the 1150RT, but I do know they look nice, are well made and large enough to accomodate a lot more thant the BMW trunk. By the way, how do you like your 1150? I love mine. If only I had more time to ride it.

Bmw e46 steptronic box, up to 1 minute delay in taking up foward drive in the morning from cold. perfect in reverse, fine for the rest of the day.


How old is the gearbox oil? In some cases, older oil (higher viscosity when old) will be too "thick" in colder weather and inhibit the synchro on your gears from slipping into 1st gear. The reason it only happens in 1st, is 'cause the shifting mechanism on the forward change is finer than that of the reverse change.

POSSIBLE Solution: Replace the gearbox oil with a lower viscosity ie. "thinner" oil.
