ECS Tuning: BMW Automatic Transmission Service DIY
Automatic Service Kits Available At:
Over the life of a vehicle, the transmission can often be overlooked when
performing routine maintenance. If left unserviced, the automatic
transmission fluid will break down, causing the valve body and filter to
become contaminated with deposits and sludge. This will lead to poor
shifting, slipping, and ultimately transmission replacement.

Proper service and repair procedures are vital to the safe, reliable
operation of all motor vehicles as well as the personal safety of those
performing the repairs. Standard safety procedures and precautions
(including use of safety goggles and proper tools and equipment) should be
followed at all times to eliminate the possibility of personal injury or
improper service which could damage the vehicle or compromise its safety.

Here at Bavarian Autosport, we have found that our BMW X5 owning customers
have been contacting Otto about troubles with their outer door handles not
working. They note that the handle pulls normally, but the door will not
open. The common problem is that the inner handle mechanism breaks and does
not transfer the outer pull handle's motions to the latch release cable.
The cure is to replace the inner handle mechanism.
We have seen customers' shop quotes for hundreds of dollars to replace the
inner handle mechanism ... and more than just a few incorrect parts
replacement quotes (quotes to replace the incorrect parts). Since one of
our purchasers had an X5 with BOTH front door handles inoperative, Otto
decided to have a look and see just what the problem was and determine if
the replacement is a reasonable DIY task. We found that the inner handle
mechanism was indeed the culprit and the repair is no more difficult than
the common window regulator replacement.
Come on along as we show the steps for replacing the X5 inner door handle
mechanism on a 2004 x5 3.0i. All E53 x5 models (00-06) will be as shown in
this video. Note that you may wish to order a few new inner door trim panel
securing clips. It is very common that some of the clips will break, or
already be broken from a prior door panel removal. We replaced six clips on
the door panel shown in this video. Additionally, if you find that the
vapor barrier panel is ripped or damaged, this should be replaced to
prevent water entry to the cabin. Bavarian Autosport stocks the clips,
vapor barrier and the vapor barrier adhesive as well as the handle
