    Should i convert to manual

    Thanks I'll phone them but can't get it there easy unless it's lifted and if doing that be aswell getting it to cal trans in Glasgow if getting it rebuilt. Obviously converting's the cheapest.
  4. I've got another post about trying to find an auto box for an old 530d and can't, somebody i know said yesterday just convert it to manual, i said that's the reason i got it as i wanted an auto diesel est. But also don't want to scrap it if i can help it as in it's in bloody good nick otherwise. Should i convert Would it drive ok

    Some people (not you) slate Mondeo and ford, they've ever never driven one and/ or just repeat what others say. I'd have another Mondeo focus ect no problem.

    Trouble finding a auto box

    Thanks And if somebody says they've got a 5L4E but a 90R i can take it and if the gears aren't right can put the other egs in. Hopefully Bri will let me know, probably be long gone though

    Trouble finding a auto box

    Sorry for the mega late reply.. So it's essentially the same box with a slightly different egs in the way it changes gear. As as your say if it does need the other egs it just bolts in with no coding. Is it inside the box because that would be a disaster for the guy i use to fit it (box) then have to take it out again to put in the egs if it's inside it, maybe not though. Apologies to you too Brian and no idea why i didn't reply. If you've still got it as fits as you've no doubt read above I'll pm you..
  8. Give it chance you say...more or less a week now eh!

  10. I'm about to try and get yet another auto box door an old E39 530d after 2 were sold then a totally useless mob called Mopart sent the wrong one, anyway Mine's a 5L4E/A5S360R but how do I know that's what's coming to the door, there's numbers on the green GM label but it's not the same as these are there any marking on it to say it's these ones I posted as I don't want another fk up Either that or I'll pick it up and make sure it's right before leaving

    Didn't think anybody would know
  13. For an old 99 E39 530d Its got a 5L4E GM but there's none about, well we're 2 but now gone and the one that I found now isn't the right one as according to RTB mine's also got a code AS 60 R but they only have an AS90R and it's different software to run it. Mine ended either late 99 and Bm seemingly brought out the other 90R in early 00. I thought all it had to be was this 5L4E but no. Im now seriously thinking of converting to manual as I'm not willing to pay £2000 + for a rebuild
