[QUOTE=celsdogg]turns out, that with a manual transmission, there is some gear noise from the getrag unit. BMW calls this standard operating noise. push the clutch in, and it disappears. no wonder i never heard it in my slushbox E30.
Yea Hoo you just made my night !!!
Now I can just go back to
and forget about it.
I have been thinking along the line of a clutch replacement and everything.
Now have you read about this noise?
Every time I accelerate or decelerate I hear a clunk like bad universals etc...
I found nothing until one day by a fluke I found the noise. It comes from the tail of my trani. I was revving it a little checking the idle and when the engine settled back down i would hear it faintly.... There really is not much play in it.
Have a great day !
