This is my first post on this site and hopefully many more in the future. I am a regular on the e46 site though. I have a question regarding my e34 car. I want to replace the black retractable plastic piece under the auto shift knob plate. This piece extend and retract as necessary when you shift gear. This is for a 1995 525I. TIA.

What do you want to replace it with? Or do you just want a new one?

I just want to replace it with a new piece. The current one tend get stuck and would not extend or retract w/o me playing with it. I remember having this same problem with our 1989 525I model. The dealer replace it that time. Oh yeah this model has a auto and manual switch next to the shift knob.

I remember reading a detailed write up on the replacement of that part, I think the guy actually made his own replacement part.

It was probably on http://www.bimmernut.com/wwwboard/e34/index.html

It's the best E34 board out there.

I didn't see anything that would help me with my question. Do you know any good key word(s) to use when I do a search for my question. thanks

It must have been back in the bimmer.org days.

I found this thread by searching with "automatic shift plastic" on the roadfly E34 board.
