We're back with another DIY video to show you how to change the manual transmission fluid on a 2006 BMW 325xi. This procedure should be the same for nearly all manual transmission BMWs, so let's get started!
Remove the fill plug first, then the drain plug. (If the fill plug is stuck and you drain the fluid, you'll need to get creative)
Ensure the car is on a level surface when filling
Fluid will seep out of the fill plug to indicate when the transmission is full
Use brake clean to remove excess oil off of the transmission case when done
