  • Wrong advice

    Find another mechanic. The X3 Excel is a tough car that is generally reliable. I have seen models that have done more than 200,000km without any trouble. The gearboxes are reliable and parts are readily available to rebuild them. And second-hand units are easy to find if it needs replacing. But before you replace the gearbox check the clutch. I reckon a worn-out clutch is probably causing your problem.

  • Clang, then a howl

    EXCELS do have dodgy manual gearboxes, as you've been told. Reverse is hard to select, but there is a way around the problem: select a forward gear first, then select reverse as you would normally, and you'll find it goes in OK. Second-gear synchro is the other problem area with the Excel gearbox. The problem wasn't really fixed until the Accent was released.
