E36 Models




NOTE
The engine-to-transmission mounting fasteners could be either a hex head or Torx® head fastener. Though no definitive information appears to be available to determine exactly when, or which models use the Torx® head fasteners, it appears that most E36 models were assembled using the Torx® head style fasteners.

The area surrounding the engine and transmission is fairly compact. The following tools will greatly ease the removal of the engine-to-transmission fasteners:

Breaker bar:



2-3 feet (60-90 cm) long, 1 / 2 inch drive
 

Impact transmission extension:



2-3 feet (60-90 cm) long, 1 / 2 inch drive end and 3 / 8 inch driven end
 

Impact universal joint:



3 / 8 inch drive
 

Impact inverted Torx® sockets:



Sizes E 10, E 12 and E 14, 3 / 8 inch drive
 


NOTE
On engine-to-transmission units assembled using hex head fasteners, use 6-point metric 3 / 8 inch drive shallow impact sockets instead of the inverted Torx® sockets listed above.

To remove the transmission, proceed as follows:

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2.  
  3. Place the transmission in neutral and remove the gear shift knob as outlined in this section.
  4.  
  5. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  6.  
  7. Disconnect the oxygen sensor(s).
  8.  
  9. Remove the exhaust support bracket at the transmission, then disconnect the exhaust front pipe from the exhaust manifold, loosen the rear muffler hangers and remove the exhaust system as a unit. It may be necessary to have the help of an assistant during this procedure.
  10.  
  11. Remove the cross brace bracket and heat shields.
  12.  
  13. Remove the driveshaft assembly. BMW uses two versions of driveshafts:

    A combination of flex couplings and Constant Velocity (CV) joints
     
    A combination of flex couplings and Universal joints (u-joints)
     

  14.  

Refer to the driveshaft removal procedures in this section for specific details on removal and installation.


NOTE
Before removal, matchmark the center bearing location and all couplers, flanges and flex disks to ensure proper alignment and balance during reassembly.

  1. Remove the two clutch slave cylinder fasteners and place the cylinder aside using technicians wire to support it.
  2.  
  3. Detach the electrical connector from the back-up light switch.
  4.  
  5. Support the engine, then remove the transmission support cross member.
  6.  
  7. Lower the engine and transmission slightly but do not allow the engine to rest against the firewall.
  8.  
  9. Disconnect and remove the shift linkage, and shift lever and bracket assembly as outlined in this section.
  10.  
  11. Inspect the area surrounding the transmission and make sure all lines, wires, brackets and related equipment is detached and placed aside.
  12.  
  13. Remove the starter motor. It may be necessary to remove and/or disconnect the lower flexible fuel lines to remove the starter. Some starters have a dowel pin, requiring the starter be rocked side-to-side to loosen and remove it.
  14.  
  15. Support the transmission with a suitable jack and remove the transmission-to-engine mounting fasteners. For fastener size and location, if necessary, refer to the provided illustrations.
  16.  
  17. Carefully slide the transmission away from the engine, keeping the mating surfaces parallel at all times.
  18.  
  19. If working on jack stands and using a floor jack to remove the transmission, it may be necessary to remove the transmission from the jack to create enough clearance to clear the underside of the vehicle. If working under these conditions, carefully lower the transmission from the jack onto a sturdy sheet of plywood or heavy cardboard. Then slowly and carefully slide the sheet out from underneath the vehicle until the transmission is clear of the under body.
