5 speed swap help... Please



Hey all.

After selling my 95 e36 last year I found myself in a 2005 Impreza, after about 6 months of owning the famous oil leaks started and my hunt for another e36 was underway. I was sort of lucky finding a 92 locally super clean body and car itself is in excellent condition for a killer price. Only downfall....
Automatic!

I have sourced a 5 speed transmission for $100 (180,000km) which will include front half of driveshaft and full shifter.

I have done a ton of reading but insist on still asking just so I don't forget anything, a couple other e36 owners here in town will help me with the grunt work I just want to have every part there in the garage before we open the case of beer and begin.

Has anyone done this swap? Would you guys mind sharing your parts list?

Thanks so much, any help would be fantastic. I have the 5 speed itch and an automatic e36 just won't cut it this summer.

Hydraulic lines, pedal switches for cruise control and starter interlock (if desired), pilot bearing. Also, I'm assuming you have reverse switch, clutch fork, pivot bushing and retaining spring included in tranny.

After picking up my transmission last night, it looks to me like all I need is
- pedals with master cyl
- flywheel
- clutch
- flex line
- hard line

Another question... My 5 speed tranny came with front half of driveshaft can I marry it to my automatic back half of driveshaft?

Also how hard is it exactly to remove the brake/clutch pedal and master from a junk yard car? Any leads on write ups would be great.

I will also be upgrading to a lightened flywheel, short shifter and changing out the flex disc.

I found a simple wiring read up on the reverse lights and cruise control (cruise will not be needed)

just the reverse light option which is simple enough.

I have a pedal set still in the car but access should be easier with the dash out. Don't know if it interests you at all. Master works but I think was on its way out. Also have the flex line and slave

If the master wasnt on its way out I would probably grab the entire package from you.

pedal box removal

i just removed the pedal box from a 328 today. PIA.
Your basically on your knees leaning in through the door trying to look for 5 13mm nuts.
You will have to remove the lower dash cover and the crash brace reinfocement for easier access.

There is one nut on the top, and 4 around where the clutch and brake pedals pivot. Once u remove these nuts, it should be wiggable, then just look at whats holding it and unhook it. that said, the slave cyclinder thats on the clutch pedal has a hose that comes out of it and goes into the firewall. I just cut it. Theres also another hose that I just cut.
