    E60 535D Gearbox Service

    Got the Gearbox service done then .. Gearbox Ecu Update Hot oil Flush New oil with New sump Pan filter New rubber Sleeve Before i got all this done the car 9/10 times when coming to a stop id get the gearbox push from 2nd gear to 1st gear only when coming to a stop, also sometimes doing cruise control on motorway steady speed say 70 the rev would sometimes move around. Since getting all that no more problems 2/nd gear to 1st gear stop no more thud, also the shifts are 100 times better also no more bouncy revs, the gearbox running so much smoother

  13. Booked my E60 535d in for a gearbox serivce, I had a gearbox service done on my e39 which was hot oil flush, new filter, gasket and new oil obv think it cost around 250 on the e39 few years ago but the E60 just because its 6 speed its going to cost me 410 quid thats new plastic sump with built in filter hot oil flush new oil and a new rubber boot sleeve Garage said i dont need to change the rubber boot sleeve only if its leaking but as im going to keeep the car im having that changed even if its not leaking. How much have yous paid for your gearbox service ?
