Gear Oil Flush
My son and I have started to embark on our first 12K type service on our own armed with the BMW Repair Manual,etc. So far, we have replaced the final drive oil, plugs, gear oil, engine oil and filter.
I don't know about anyone else, but dropping the entire exhaust, and O2 sensor to get to the drain and fill on the tranny seems absolutely crazy even though we just finished doing it.
Does anyone know how to do the gear oil flush without dropping the exhaust? One of the local dealers elluded to a way but wasn't specific.
Also, any shortcuts to replace the air and gas filters?
Any help would be appreciated.
