2 extra gears?


Rubbersoul

Recommended Posts

I just purchased a 75 2002 two days ago and already have begun tearing the car apart and figuring out what it needs. The previous owner said it was swapped to a 5 speed transmission prior to his ownership and I don’t think he even drove it once. The shift linkage is very sloppy but when you’re sitting in the car messing with the shifter you can feel it go through the gears and it shifts as if there’s a 5th and 6th gear and for the life of me I can’t figure out why?

 

i crawled underneath the car and I believe the car has a 4 speed tranny based off the stamp on the transmission 
 

any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I understand the linkage is very loose I’ve had that before in cars but never enough where it shifted into extra gears

The Getrag 235/5 Close Ratio Dog Leg transmission looks like the 4 speed, but has a third section between the output shaft housing and the forward bell housing section.  It is easily identified from the Getrag 245 5 speed found in the BMW 320i because the slave cylinder is in the same position as the standard 4 speed found in the BMW 2002.  These transmission are rare, expensive and hard to find parts to rebuild them.

First picture shows the markings of a Getrag 232 which is a 4 speed.

 

The sloppy shifter must be VERY sloppy.  Rebuild kit is available from Blunt.

ARRGGHHHHHHH....

 

that's a casting number, not a stamp.

 

That casting was used in several transmissions.

 

Full body nudie pic of the trans, or we have no idea.

yes, there's a difference...

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
