Depends on your engine. I believe the part number for the automatic 5 speed transmission on the 2003-2011 9-3s with the B207R engine is the same (55353747). The only exception is in 2003 there were 2 different transmissions with two slightly different part numbers. As long as the 2011 transmission has the same part number as your 2006, then yes.Is it possible to put a 2011 auto 5spd transmission in a 2006 (auto 5-spd) 9-3?
I don't mind using the 2011 TCU (or updating the existing unit), and updating the ECU.
If there's a compatibility matrix or FAQ that I missed, I'm all ears!
It's been awhile since last I looked but I think the yellowish / orangish metal tag with the part # on it is on the topside of the transmission just below the battery somewhere.Great, and thank you both. There's some interchange confusion (eg a 2007 is listed as fitting a 2011, but a 2011 isn't listed as fitting anything other than 2010 and 2011).
I'm going to check the part numbers out just be certain. I don't know where to look for the part number still (after 1/2 hr spent on google) but I'm going out to the car later today to check visually. If anyone knows whether it's visible from the top that would be valuable info.
