SSG (Non-M SMG) Clutch Actuator Overhaul

Hi everyone

For those of you who are bothered about leaking clutch actuator of E46's SSG transmission (5- and 6-speed), I offer overhaul for it. That means replacing the inside hydraulic piston seal by an exactly fitting, 100% hydraulic fluid compatible seal which is manufactured by a german specialist company.
There is a workaround going to forums, which says to fix the actuator with clutch slave cylinder repair kit. This seal is not suitable for SSG enviroment and fluid and will cause damage of the entire system.

All specifications of my seal have been acquired together with Pentosin, main supplier for CHF-11S hydraulic fluid.
New actuator @ BMW dealer is about 1000$, so why fling away that money?

Costs: 200$ (including free shipping back to USA, shipping to Germany is up to you) via PayPal.

If you send me your used and leaking actuator in advance, I will directly overhaul this one. Otherwise I would charge another 200$ as deposit and send a refurbished actuator first and you can return the old part afterwards. I will refund the deposit as soon the actuator arrives.

PM me if interested or if you have any questions.

Hey,
BMW itself used both names (SMG ans SSG) for the Non-M SMG at diffrent places (in Inpa for example its called SSG).
If you're interested in overhaul of the actuator, PM me please.

Sorry to hear that unfortunately you will have to get a new one and here is why. I'm a mechanic so I try to fix my slave cylinder cause it was leaking well I order the parts and put it back in I know a lot of people will tell you that you have to go to the dealer to bleed the system but you can actually insert the fluid back with a syringe I know because I did it. The cars runs like new for maybe 4 days and then I park at work and when I came out the car got stock in gear so I knew it was something wrong again. I took the slave cyl. Out and it was stock the rubber seal for the piston is a different material so it melted and got the piston stock they only sell a repair kit for a manual not a smg so I had to buy a new one and this time you do have to bring it to a dealer because since is a new sensor you have to do adaptations to the pcm(computer) I think the part cost me 1200 but I'm pretty sure that the 330ci is the only that cost that much all the other ones for other vehicles run for about 600-800 but expect to pay about 500-800 on the dealer so I finish paying close to 2K

Normally it takes 1 day to overhaul the part, so total time is strongly dependend from shipping speed. It is 200$ for the overhaul.

You could have saved a lot of money by reading my post before.

I answered you on your private message. Yes, I'm able to do the overhaul also for 545 and 550 SMG actuators.
