I have a X5 of 2004 with almost 295000km and since yesterday I have a problem with my transmission aswell. When I put it in R it starts driving forwards instead of backwards! When I put it in D it takes a few seconds before it moves.

I went to the dealer and they said they need to change the gearbox but that's so expensive! I hope that there is a solution that doesn't involve changing the gearbox because the car isn't worth that much anymore. I hope you can give me some tips.

Hey There

I willhelp as much as I can,,but I need to some more details, does the car display the symptoms when it is cold or warm, have you lost the kickdown gear, can you use your gearbox in maual mode, has a message TRANSFAIL PROG appeared on the dash, when you select drive does the car take a few seconds before it engages gear, but you experience a loud thump before it moves off.
