The pump supplies the hydraulic pressure for the different consumers (actuators) of the SMG and stores it in the pressure accumulator. The pump consists of a gear pump and the powering electric motor. Due to its location in a high temperature area, the motor suffers often from damage and is a common problem. Especially on hot days the car can drop out of gear
or show the gearbox warning light (SMG cog light)
. Often the following codes appear in the error memory:
- 56 (0x38) Switching-on time of hydraulic unit
- 53 (0x35) low level of pressure reached HE
- 57 (0x39) Misuse of hydraulic unit
- 55 (0x37) Switching-on frequency of hydraulic unit
No worry – here is a solution for these problems!
We provide a new motor for the pump as a solution for various problems with the BMW M3 SMG II. The motor meets highest expectations of quality and enables a sporty style of driving with frequent shifting. Of course, the motor comes with a 12 month warranty.
The old motor can be replaced by the new one “plug&play“. The replacement motor is already equipped with the required pins and can be directly connected to the original wiring harness. For removing the old motor, you may need a release tool.
