View Full Version : Tranny problems

08-10-2012, 12:37 AM
I have a 2002 325ci

For the last few days I've been hearing a clunking noise and haven't been able to figure it out. But today when I went for a drive I noticed in high revs in first gear the shifting lever pulls extremely hard to the left and looks like its gona snap off and when I let go of the gas I hear the clunking noise and this happens in all gears at high revs. I would like to know what's wrong. I believe my engine or tranny mounts went on a vacation ? If so what are the best replacement for them and where could I buy them from ?

Thanks for all your help

Hanger bearing most likely, or guibo...or both...Not expensive and should be available almost anywhere. Get it done befor you damage more important parts! *th-up*

Check the transmission mounts as well.

My engine mount had completely gave away a piece of it broke off and was resting in the control arm. My oil pan was resting on the shield. I will post a pic of the broken mount and will be replacing them today
