Customer Question

Hi there, I just picked up a 1999 323i and I can get a loud, intermittent clicking noise when the car's in gear. It sounds like it's coming from under the dashboard and I can feel the clicking in the shifter (it's an automatic). Help!!

Hello and welcome to Justanswer!

If the noise is coming from the shifter it could be from the brake/shifter interlock or the noise could be coming from the transmission or something hitting the shift cable that shoudl not be, and the noise is being transmitted to the shifter through the cable.

Did the problem start after a repair, jump start, accident, etc?
