Mein Auto: 2008 x3 monaco blue prem,
The grease that came with my parts was a light color and I was thinking it was a lithium grease.

All purpose or white lithium grease will suffice.

So..... today I replaced the kaput actuator year with a new one that I purchased off eBay.....

Now my transmission is bucking like a bronco!! No error loads or trio of abs, park brake and 4x4 anymore but Iíd prefer those to this jerky transmission I have again!

Iím wondering if my gear that I bought isnít close enough to spec and is causing problems.....
