Default Re: Compression spring SMG dropping out of gear DIY

I only replaced 1 spring when I did this and it was the one behind the pressed in plug. If you click the Part Number for item #6 (23311228397) at http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/show...diagId=23_0956, you will see that the part was superseded by 23317511337, which is the same part number as item #9 at http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/show...diagId=23_0887. Hope that helps!

I'm taking my car to a shop, how many hours would you guys estimate the project to be if I'm swapping out all of my compression springs if they had all the proper tools? TIA
