On my E39 530i Sport Auto when changing gears from "D" to "R" I hear a spring noise. I didn't have this in my previous E39 Sport which was a 528i.

Is this normal as I don't have any check control lights on my dash indicating any gearbox problems.

If the tranny's on E39s are anything like those on the E34s then they have anti-rattle pins... how those operate, I don't know, but what I do know is that they can in fact fall out.

I don't think the tranny will die because of it though.
