    F11 auto transmission fluid change done.

    I am a bit confused as to why someone would drive to Germany to get a fluid change on a transmission?? Am I the only one that thinks that's a bit ott. This is a basic service not any different to changing the oil in the engine.. You wouldn't drive to the bmw engine factory to get the oil changed just to make sure they did it right You need to make sure you fill it at the correct temp.. If zf do a full flush that is different.. On there website they show the procedure as just drain and filter change no mention of a full flush being done or required. https://www.zf.com/me/en_ae/corporate/aftermarket/spare_parts_corporate/transmissions_corporate/how_to_change_oil/change_oil.html Bmw only do a drain and filter change as well. I was a bit nervous doing the job for the first time but if you follow the procedure to the letter you can't go wrong. I am sure a zf approved shop in the uk would do this job just as good as a German tech.

    Take it to a mechanic.. Lot of electrical/mechanical engineers running around but dont know one end of a torque wrench from the other.. My mate has a masters in mechanical engineering...he has never got his hands dirty.. Would he attempt this job ...hell no...is he very clever ...hell yeah..

    If you have access to a lift...the job would be so easy... It's a faff messing about under the car.. If your a pen pusher pay the mechanic. I am an engineer and prefer to know the job is done right. I enjoyed spending an afternoon in the sun making sure everything was done right. I will pop the under tray off tomorrow and check for leaks You need the tools and that will be the limiting factor for most.

    yeah i wont drive it like i stole it.. BMW say Notice! Reset adaptations! Adaptations are performed automatically during the journey. After having performed repair work on the 8-speed automatic gearbox or replacing the 8-speed automatic gearbox, adaptations must be reset using the diagnosis system. Subsequently go for a test drive and engage all gears. Sure i can do that

    Front wheel bearings failure

    I agree the combustion engine is a dinosour and long overdue for extinction. But The Tesla Model S, for example, is equipped with a single-speed 9.73:1 step-down transmission, not even a two-speed transmission, for two reasons. First, there are very few transmissions capable of handling 600 N•m torque. Second, you can’t spin the wheels at 10,000 rpm. Well, you could, but it would be totally unnecessary. Still need a transmission.

    I have the ista+ software. Just follow the service function it tells you the transmission temp. Drain ...replace ...fill You fill it.. run the engine and keep filling it till it overflows.. till it reaches 40 max Go through the gears and run at 2000 rpm till it fills the torque converter while continuing to fill the transmission.. When that's done temp must be under 40 if it goes over which it does you have to wait till it cools down to move on in the service function. When temp below 40 run the engine and when it's between 40 and 50 check level again..till a dribble comes out or add some if not.. Done. Spirit level on bottom of transmission to get level bang on. Car on ramps and axle stands with large jack on the rear.. Don't jack on rear diff on f11 Bmw use a different torque tightening pattern on the filter to the one on the zf. I used bmw method.. I put 6 litres in When I was pulling up to roundabouts the transmission was rough down shifting.. Took it a run yesterday and seems to have cured it..very smooth down through the gears.. The new fluid is very thin..low viscosity old stuff was thicke used really. I will give it a week to see if there is a definite change.. I got the filter zf for 90 delivered and oil off eBay from a guy that worked at land rover..old stock.They use zf transmission as well and he said to change it..Not sealed for life rubbish. 150 quid all in

    Front wheel bearings failure

    Took the car on the motorway on a new bit of asphalt at a good speed.. No noise at all from bearing.. I will have to monitor it.
  12. Dropped the fluid on this today. New filter and fluid.. Old fluid is dark..New stuff is green.. 75k on the clock..

    Front wheel bearings failure

    Hi.. How bad were your bearings?
  15. Hi chaps I was changing my discs and pads yesterday and checked the front wheel bearings Both are sounding rough with a clonking noise when rotating..not lateral play just rough.. The hub and bearing are a one piece item so not scraping on anything. Really just curious to see if anyone else has replaced them.. Only done 75000 on a 520d. 2012 f11 Bmw want 210 quid for one.. Can get FAG one for a lot less.. Cheers
