So i was going to take this job on and post a video wright up on the entire process. I was using a schematic i found online of where the compression springs would be located but turns out it was from an earlier e46 tranny. My tranny doesnt appear to have compression springs or at least not in the locations that the pic showed them to be. Can anyone shed some light on this? I did however replace the gear position sensor but have not yet got the car put back together to make sure it was the problem. The issue i was having was my car wouldnt shift under load. the gear indicator would just flash until the RPM dropped down to 3k, and would then engage to the gear selected.
