Arrow Center Support Bearing Videos

Hey guys,

Below are some videos of my experience with replacing the center support bearing in my car. I figured I would record some videos to show you guys how I removed the bearing since I haven't seen any videos out there. Hopefully this method I used helps some of you guys out there. Maybe some of you have a better method for this, but I thought I'd show you how I did mine. Enjoy!

Hey great videos. Thanks for posting. I just replaced my CSB and noticed the E46 330 6-speed has a different driveshaft setup. Instead of a locking collar on one half of the driveshaft, you must loosen a nut (18mm box wrench) inside the U-joint to separate the driveshaft. And I swear my U-joint is in front of the CSB (closer to the transmission). Most photos and DIY videos show the U-join behind the CSB (closer to the differential).
