The 2nd gear syncro is gone in my winter car (92 318i) and I have to fix it soon. Does anyone have pics of what the BMW tranny internals look like? Anyone have this same problem? I don't think they are the brass cone style like the ones in most american trannies. Can anyone help?:confused:

Yeah its still drivable but you have to shift 2nd when the input shaft of the tranny and the rear end are spinning at the same speed (around 3800rpm) otherwise the gears grind slightly.

are you getting that ticking noise before you hit 3800RPM?
