  7. No reverse on standard transmission

    General E46 Forum
    Hi, I need an advice: The reverse gear on my 2000 323i is starting to act up (it simply disengages while driving rearward) . My BMW mechanic told me that I have to change the transmission. I know it is a common issue for that year & model automatic tranny, but I've got the manual 5-speed one...
