Not sure if you remember me. I posted in the E60 forum back in early 2014 about a transmission issue I was having and you responded several times. My issue resolved itself after a week or so back then.
Now, almost three years later at 117K miles, I had to have all my solenoids replaced, along with the oil and pan, sleeves, etc. My Indy performed the repair since I have long been out of warranty. This time, I am able to drive my car. However, the shifting is not as smooth as it was before. Although my indy claims he reset the trans adaptations, I am not sure how or if this was done. Please see my posts from today in the E60 and DIY forums and let me know what you think. I would appreciate any feedback you might have.
Hi Again Kyle. Thanks for your help.
Another question if you don't mind.
I have repleced the solenoids and seals, tranny oil and re-assembled everything. unfuotunately the warning light is still on and the car is still stuck in a low gear.
Do i need to re-set the transmission or could it just be another problem,
hope you can help.
I have found your post on replacing transmissionsolenoids invaluable. I am about to re-assemble my mechatronic box and just wondered if there is a secret to connecting the electrical plug back into the box, without damage. as you have mentioned previously,there is very little room to operate in.
Hey Kyle. I can't remember if you said once that you changed out your struts. I am considering to change mine soon. Will do new mounts as well. Also will be changing control arm bushings. I heard these can be pressed out/in but the are aluminum. A friend of mine said we would not if they are alum. Also I hear that the ball joint comes on the arm if you buy the entire arm. Have you changed any of these yet? How hard was it? I've changed struts and shocks on my old m3 e36 nothing to it. I remember reading something about the right rear strut was a pita.
