[DML] Re: second gear fork pin ($10,000 question)



It's not all that difficult - I'm a amateur maechanic and I figured 
it out.

But - try to fine a better-than-average transmission shop. You 
probably need
to find the independent guy who works on European cars, keeps a clean 
shop,
and if you can hook up with the local BMW or Volvo club for 
recommendations
so much the better. Stay away from Aamco and that like - they are 
generally
just R&R guys and wouldn't touch it anyway.

He'll have to remove the trans from the car, remove the back end and
bellhousing (need gaskets to put back together), split  the case 
halves
apart, fix the rollpin, inspect and/or replace the sliding gear and
synchros, and put it back together.
