I do have a 6 speed tranny but...

Thanks for your reply and thanks for the diagram that phill have provide. If I am reading the diagram correctly. The fill plug is on the passenger side on the side. However on my tranny on the passenger side there is no plug with a hex screw.

I researched the web all day. Please look at this thread. It has a pictures of the tranny I have. Looks like this guy had the same problem 3 years ago. And it looks like another member "swissfrank" has some answers. Here is the link I forgot it earlier http://www.xoutpost.com/bmw-sav-foru...tion-help.html

But my questions are to make clear what "swissfranks" had said.

Is he saying the way this works is when the tyanny fluid is at the right temp with the engine running (how you normally check the tranny fluid level). The tranny fluid is at the correct level where the fluid will just about to spill out of this recessed (circular depression) plug. So if there is to much fluid it will drain. Please let me know if I got this right.

When he said

"either match a fitting to your plug or you could actually fit a tube up there around the fill hole, as there is a baffle there as well".

Is he saying you can get a matching fitting to the depression plug threads and connect a tube to your standard tranny oil hand pump and pump in tranny fluid at the right temp and with the engine running. Over fill it a little and let the rest drain out? And you will be at the correct fluid level?

Or you can do it with out the fitting and just pump it in with the hand pump (with the engine running at the right temp) and because you don't have a fitting (not a good seal) it can be messy?

thanks any help will be appreciated.

ZF trans

I have a 2004 4.4i with a six-speed and an 8/04 build date. Guess I'll have to crawl under and see whether it has the 5hp24 or the 6hp26 now that I'm confused.

My indie BMW shop quoted $365 to do the trans service being discussed here. I went to the local stealership today, and they said they wouldn't do it at any price because BMW says not to. Very confusing.
