BMW e46 Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter Change.wmv
How to change the Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter in a BMW 330i equipped with a GM Automatic Transmission 5L40E which is the AS5-390R. This is the same procedure for all GM based Automatic Transmissions found in the 3 series, Z3, and Z4.
Make sure you have a T40, and T45 Torx socket, 10mm socket, razor, screw driver, plenty of rags, at least four jack stands, and two jacks, safety glasses and Nitrile Gloves, plus a case of ATF Dexron VI.
The Mobil Dexron VI (or other synthetic blend) will replace Texaco ETL 8072B as the ATF.
I performed a two part change to ensure most of the fluid was exchanged. First part was just a drain and fill without pan removal, this exchanged about 4 quarts. Drove the car 100 miles and then did a full drain and filter change (this video) and that exchanged about 6 quarts. This will ensure that 80-90% of the fluid is exchanged.
Post change the manual 5 speed shifting (especially downshifts) were much faster. All Automatic shifts under power were as good or better than before. Fortunately magnet on the bottom of the pan did not have much even after almost 100k miles on the original fluid.

Sorry we didn't film the relocation into the AC Controls slot. It's a direct fit on other cars and almost a direct fit on E46, but if you want it to be 100% factory you'll need a climate control trim piece available from the dealer. In this install we did not use the factory piece and it worked quit well. e46 is the only model that uses the OEM part and it's 51-16-7-001-408.
