740il ZF5HP24 no reverse after I rebuilt it
I am new to this BMW forum so here is my story. I have a 97 740il with a ZF5HP24 (1058 000 016). the original problem is No foward gears but reverse worked fine. I decided rebuild it on my own. I found the problem to be a broken clutch drum. I replaced it and did the entire rebuild. Now that I am done. the foward gears work fine but the reverse is not. It feels like the reverse gear engages for about 5 seconds and i feel the car move but immediately after it acts like I am in nuetral. What could possibly be my problem? It is a valve body or internal? I would hate to take this tranny out again.... ANY HELP. Anyone have a repair manual handy?
