INPA is a third-party software app and cable that can perform detailed system analysis, much like authentic BMW tools. Don't know SMT, but probably of the same ilk.

It may be a worn out clutch lever pivot. Was it replaced with the clutch?

I would expect that the shop replaced the throwout bearing, along with the clutch.

The 545 SMG was a troublesome and complicated trans. You need to find someone who understands it. Does the guy 37 miles away understand it?

Don't tow it, flat-bed it. AAA will do it free.

Sounds good. I ordered five from Mouser.

This is the first transistor failure since I've owned the car (14 years).

I'm going to have to go down this road myself for my right side high beam.

Anyone who's done this, the question is, should I replace all the headlight transistors at the same time?

Thanks...

OP never did respond about the condition of the battery, nor any comments about using INPA. Also, looks like we strayed, and began blaming the fuel.
