I think I'm getting a bit ahead of myself.
I need to continue to focus on maintenance parts prior to modifications...

on that note lol Definitely looking forward to this upgrade

That is a definite upgrade. Curious why you wouldn’t upgrade to E9X M3 steering wheel. Its more period correct and looks the best in the interior and straight bolt on.

I have the car up on jackstands again...

It was time to remove the exhaust system so that I could replace the Clutch & Flywheel. I had the entire exhaust system held up by bungee cords and I was removing the last hanger when one of the cords snapped off. The muffler swung down and punched me in the face... lol smh

Blood & Sweat so far. Tears might come at a later date.

Posting the photo above... looks like a damn cold sore lol

As per a prior post - it is difficult to remove the shifter linkage on an X-drive - Manual transmission as the transfer case is in the way. There is not much visibility and some long tools need to be used such as a long screwdriver, long pliers, long pry bar and lots of lighting to see between the transmission & tunnel.

The Transfer box


The two upper clipping points for the shifter linkage


I noticed a lot of people with RWD tend to update their shifter linkage to a stiffer bracket in addition to a short shifter. I'm considering that... but I believe the bracket is plenty rigid... updating from the oem shifter may not be necessary.

the two passenger side jacking points were totally messed up and i was not happy having to worry about the car sitting with a left weight bias when I was underneath it.

Picked up two jack pads from amazon. Not the best quality but I do not believe it is worth the expense for an OEM replacement

Onwards with the transmission refresh.

I started to replace the Clutch Fork Ball pin as well as the Clutch Fork Sleeve.



I tried using a punch and mallot from the opposing side but it wouldn't budge... so it was time to drill it out



I used a plastic faced hammer to hammer the new one into place.

I managed to strip one of the bolts that held the Clutch Fork Sleeve onto the Transmission bell housing...



I had to drill it out and then use a reverse - left handed tap to get the rest of the bolt out





Fair amount of wear and tear, as with the nature of a 200k km 10 year old car.

I'm a little frustrated by bmw....
the whole point of the shifter fork sleeve is to provide a smooth surface for the fork to slide....



Then the staff go ahead and leave stickers all over it, and the adhesive isn't an easy-peel solution.

Cleaning the damn thing....



The sleeve isn't a high torque application so i went ahead and replaced the hardware with allen key stainless steel cap bolts



And that's C'est Fini for this damn thing...
