So, after getting ready to take the car into Victoria BMW for a timing belt change, I discover something else.
The rear end is worn. I initially thought that the quiet clank from the rear enaging/disengaging of the throttle would be a limited slip diff, but lo and behold, not on my car.
ghead Now I'm lookin at a new rear end.
While that's out, I'm thinkin may as well go for the whole job here, and replace the transmission with the 5spd unit. I suppose my question is, with some relative knowledge and an air lift, how difficult are these jobs? I'm going to have to do some scrounging for the parts for the tranny, arn't I? (Clutch pedal assembly, etc, hopefully bolts right in if you replace the brake pedal with the smaller version?)
Do it myself, or take it to the shop?
