Help! 2000 M5 Clutch, Flywheel install problem
An indie shop replaced my clutch, pressure plate, flywheel on my E39 2000 M5 with about 110,000 Miles.
The flywheel was purchased from local BMW dealer, and the clutch kit (including pressure plate and the align tool)from eBay made by Luk.
Everything fit perfect and installed fine.
I was told the car did not engage into gear, so they did some bleeding.
Now the car can shift into gears when the engine is off ( first and second still a bit tough). But when the car is on, it's almost impossible shift into gear without apply force.
Any help or suggestions would be highly appreciated.
