hey im new here i just got a 91 325i with a 5speed but the trans wouldnt go into 3rd or 4th and when we took it out there it was completely dry. the bearing on the main shaft was missing balls so i took it to my trans guy and he said the reason it wasnt going into 3rd and 4th was because this bearing was so loose. does that make since? i thought it was the syncros for sure. but then on top of that he can't get the bearing out now so i'm taking it home tomorrow and doing it myself. please let me know before i put it back in if the shaft bearing could cause lack of 3rd and 4th gear. and about how much do junky trans go for this car?

thank you so much,
Rick

if the guy at the tranny place cant remove the bearing, youll probably break something or destory the housing. a junkyard tranny would run bout 300+ depending on the place and how much they know bout these cars
