My girlfriends E46 won't go into reverse. Last week it was shaking when going backwards. Now when you put it into R nothing happens. I know that it needs a new wheel speed sensor. We have been getting the error lights from that, but I don't think that this is related. Any ideas? Also, she is out of her warranty period, but is there an extended warranty on the trans?

Thanks

Which transmission is it? If its a 2000 323 I doubt you have any warranty left unless you bought it in Nov/Dec of 2000. Warranty 4/50.


99-01 e46 is 3/36

02+ is 4/50

your most likely going to need to replace that transmission. My car wouldnt go into reverse last year either and i went to the dealership and they replaced the whole transmission. Good think i still had my warranty because its pretty pricey. Good luck
