Smg Failure

Recommended Posts

Afternoon All

 

Just wondering if anyone can help me?

 

My 2008 model M5 Touring has had the red cog appear and is locked in 1st gear. I have read somewhere that the SMG pump can be repaired and that there is also a BMW repair kit does anyone have any info on this please?

 

thanks

From memory you can buy most pump parts individually rather than replace the whole thing like SMGII. 

 

Ideally get some codes from it which might point you in the right direction. I’ve had a couple of thrust bearings fail which can cause all sorts of problems as you can imagine. Did it fail when you were driving or when you went to start it?

Hi

 

Yes it failed whilst out driving, approached some traffic lights and red cog appeared cutting engine off.

Hmm sounds like it was possibly unable to release the clutch as you came to a stop, but that’s pure guess work.  

 

See if there are any fault codes and go from there.
