Propshaft - BRAND NEW!

Post by skyetripper » Mon Dec 10, 2018 6:26 pm

Afternoon All

I recently needed to replace the centre support bearing on the prop on my '97 B10 v8 and given the miles, we had assumed the UJ was knocking as well. To minimise the time that the car would be off the road, I decided to take the plunge and buy a complete new prop.

As it turned out, we only needed to do the centre support bearing so the propshaft wasn't needed. BMW in their infinite wisdom won't take it as a return (despite saying they would.... :evil: ). I don't expect there will be many (any!) takers (I'll try eBay in a bit) but it will fit all auto box 540's, All e39 B10 v8 and v8S models (It doesn't fit M5..)


Part number is 26101229291 and it comes complete with guibo, CV, UJ and centre support bearing. Out of interest, a genuine new CV, UJ, Guibo and Centre bearing would be around £500 and a rebuild of your own from a factors around £400.

I paid just over £700 for it ( :shock: ), but I'm open to sensible offers...

Just an update to say this is no longer available. After some cajoling, local BMW managed to get Germany to take the prop back, albeit with a handling fee.

Safe to say my estimation of my local BMW dealer has improved quite a bit. :clap:
