    5 sp OD rebuild

    I would probably ask one of the Bay Area BMW repair places, like Bill Arnold in Novato, where he would send a tranny out to get repaired. I trust someone like that to give you an honest answer to what shops he uses for those repairs.

    5 sp OD rebuild

    Hi Steve-- I recall that someone recommend a shop in Hayward a few years ago to rebuild a differential, but I do not recall the shop name. Perhaps a local tech knows the name. I understand your concern. I still recall taking my late '73 to the dealer (Century BMW) for it's first tune-up and their "best" mechanic had a 4-speed open on his bench as he tried to make his repair work. A few years later, the "best" mechanic at the Scottsdale, AZ dealer rebuilt my transmission to replace a bunged output shaft (damaged by a loose output flange) and until Sean Casey installed a 5-speed decades later, that 4-speed had an occasional 1-st gear lockout.

  10. Does anyone know of a shop(s) in the SF Bay Area that could rebuild my 1980 5 sp OD transmission (Getrag 245)? It is from an e21 and is the correct version for putting into my 1974 2002! No one in Santa Rosa, where i live knows how to fix this transmission.

    PPI Recommendation

    We have some San Francisco Bay Area shops listed on [bayarea02.com]. On our new homepage, look for Service providers in the drop-down menu from Tech Resources. I used Edge Motorworks in Dublin [edgemotorworks.com] for a Post Purchase Inspection on an E36 when I was between (driveable) 2002's. Dublin is just across the I-580 freeway from Pleasanton. Edge specializes in BMW's and autocrosses with BMWCCA. Just 15 or 20 miles North of Pleasanton there are a couple of shops in Walnut Creek, M-Service and Wolfgangs, that have 2002 race cars; see bayarea02.com. A few years back Tom Jones made a house call for me to look at a tii. He told me that if he had brought some injection pump seals with him he could have had it running. Eventually someone else bought that tii and we saw it at some of our events. You should be able to PM Tom on this site. Good luck! Do you plan to move to Pleasanton to be with your car or will you drive it across the US in a road trip adventure (a little like I did with my tii from St. Louis in January 2010)? Larry

    PPI Recommendation

    Newbie here so apologies if this isn't the correct place to ask but I figure no one knows better than locals... I am considering purchase of a '72 2002 out in Pleasanton. I know some of the vehicle's history including that it was previously involved in a deer strike that appears from pics well addressed. I'm back east outside Baltimore and need to be sure -- or as sure as one can ever be -- that I am not making a mistake here. Looking for recommendations on good PPI providers who know 2002s and are "local" to Pleasanton. Even better is someone who would travel to the seller. Thanks for your recommendations!

  16. Hi Guys, My name is Mojan leaving in Fremont ca. I would like to buy a 1968-1973 bmw2002. I am more like a simple person who likes stock. I am not a fancy guy either. so I have a very nice MG midget in my small garage that needs to go out before the bmw goes in I wish I had enough space to keep both.... anyway if somone one here is looking for a trade MG Midget with BMW2002 let me know. Or help me to purchase BMW2002 and I’ll sell my MG online... I prefer to buy something locally than on eBay from other states, that’s why I’m posting here on bayarea02. Thank you, Mojan
