Question Asked: Transmission problem?
November 15, 2009, 11:10 AM
Hi, I'm UK based and have a 2000 540i M Sport with what is possibly a transmission / auto box problem. There is an intermittent noise / grinding sound coming from what sounds like the near side (left in my case) rear - initially I though it might be a wheel bearing however it does appear to be linked to the gearbox - it feels like it's dropping between gears and the engine "hunts" very slightly. It tends to happen between 40 & 50 MPH and less at higher speeds. Does anyone have any ideas what it might be?
