Uh Oh - Loud Knock Between 2nd and 3rd Gear

Hi All,

Tried searching for this particular issue, but the X3 seems to be laden with all kinds of various transmission issues, no one seems to have this particular issue (or at least that I could find in my limited attempts). So I've been noticing a harsh shift in only 2nd to 3rd. All other gears seem to be fine. But now it's also emitting a rather loud knock...again, only 2 to 3. Anyone have insight w/ prior experience of this?

It's an '07 w/ 150k on it. I am considering doing a trans fluid change, but considering it's only happening in one gear, that is probably not the actual problem.

Thanks for reading.
