Mein Auto: 1999 BMW 528i
Another update. Just yesterday I replaced my slave cylinder (OEM) and installed a new CDV valve (zeckhousen racing one). After that I took air out of the system by pressing the clutch few times and then opening the screw on the back of the slave (while the clutch stayed pressed). I repeated the process about 7 to 8 times and then I went for a test drive. The clutch engagement was much better (I suppose that was due to the new CDV valve), but the hard shifting only went away by about 20%. I am really not sure what to do now. What else do I need to replace? Could there be more air in the system? Master slave? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
