When I shift into any gear....(even reverse) the stick shifter will move side to side as if it was in nuetral. That is to say if I shift into first gear, I can make the stick move left to right without switching gears. Anyone know whats causing makes for a really crappy driving experience.


if you are driving a 528e I can tell you what the problem is, there are two bolts tucked all the way up top back of trans. the come lose. I had the same problem so I locktited them in there. it will be a bit of work. you may have to drop the back of the trans down to get to them. they are connected to rubber mounts that connect to where the shift linkage is. you will understand when you get down there and look. Good luck
