2003 m3 6speed. 17k...
iv heard a thump a few weeks ago only when i put the car in reverse.. the sound of the thump i think is commin from the back of the car.. when i have the clutch down, then pop the gear in reverse i here that noise.. when i put it back in N and back in reverse i dont hear the noise without letting go of the clutch... when i let go of the clutch in N and then bck to R.. i hear the thump.
i took the car to the dealer yesterday and recieved the call today. the rep said i gotta come back on the 13th for the mech specialist could take a look at it.. from lookin at the car they came up with two things.. first problem could be iis from inside the transmission. and the second proplem could be from the differentials..
anyone had this prob?
