  1. Shifter looseness - side-to-side

    ///M3 Forum
    I have installed a 330d short shifter, which made a nice difference to shifts. However, I still have looseness / slack in side-to-side movement of the shifter. Can you guys point me to the correct part to replace to address this? Is it #12 here along with the #10 washers...
  2. Manual Shifter Sloppy

    ///M3 Forum
    Hey everyone, The shifter in my e46 M3 6MT with ~130k miles has been quite loose ever since I bought it at 100k miles. It's just general slop –*no specific direction, just loose overall. I really noticed it after driving some stock manual bimmers with tight shifters. Any ideas on what parts to...
  3. Double shear selector rod for an xi

    E46 Xi Forum
    Well, today marks the day that I'm sick of the side to side movement in my shifter. About 4 months ago now I replaced all the linkage bushings and shifter in my 04 325xi and it had made a big difference. My problem is that my side to side slop never went away. I've had people claim to me that...

    General E46 Forum
