Post BMW E46 E85 Rear Differential Mount Bushing Koch Tool for RENT or PURCHASE

Tool has been sold! No Longer Renting.

Thanks for those who rented the tool!

PM me if interested....


To rent $60 plus return shipping. US only not including Hawaii or Alaska

RULES FOR RENTING.
Deposit of $120 for renting must be made using paypal. Once I receive the tool and inspect it I will refund you $60 if the tool is returned as requested.

Rules for $60 refund.

1: Tool and case must be returned cleaned. I know its hard to avoid greasy finger prints but please try your best not to return the tool with grease stains all over it.

2: Tool must be returned in working condition.
Do not damage the bolt or nut.
Do not use a impact gun on this tool, it is not needed. A wrench will remove the bushing without much force.
A can of WD-40 will be provided and please use it to reduce the chances of the bolt thread being stripped. Can of WD-40 must be returned as well.

3: Tool must be returned within less then 3 weeks of receiving it. Thats does not include return shipping time. As long as I get a tracking number before 3 weeks of receiving the tool it shouldn't be a problem.


Open the shipping box neatly and you can reuse it to ship it back.

OR this tool can be purchased for $120.

I used it and I was able to remove the bushing and install it in 15 minutes. Clunking noise is now gone and switching gears feels much better.



Koch Tools Part #: KT20297

For those who dare to try and make your own bushing removing tool like I tried....BEWARE!

I purchased this tool from Harbor Freight to remove the front wheel bearings on my Nissan.

http://www.harborfreight.com/fwd-fro...ers-66829.html

The adapters do fit for our BMWs but the bolt is too thick and wont enter the bushing. So I went to Home Depot and purchased a smaller bolt that fits the bushing and also some nuts and washers. I purchased the most expensive bolt they had to try and avoid it stripping. Guess what? It still stripped and now the bolt wouldn't come out!! It took me 2 hours to remove the bolt. I had to use my grinder and cut it. It was a nightmare. Thats when I just decided to purchase this tool. In 15 minutes I was able to remove the old rusty bushing and put the new one in. Wish I would have done this from the beginning instead my car was on jackstands for a week since I had to wait for the tool to come in

I will let you know as soon as I get it. Sorry this tool is only for the rear diff bushing. The other bushings require a different tool. Looks the same just smaller.

Check the condition of the front bushings before you even bother with them. Mine were fine and weren't worth replacing.

Yeah I noticed that when I put her on the lift. The front diff bushings look new. I thought about doing it since its going to be taken out regardless (why not) but since 1 tool can't do both front and rear I won't bother with it. Thanks for the tip

Got the refund almost immediately after Custom3 got the tool back. Do not hesitate to rent this! It'll make a potential nightmare job a piece of cake and is worth every last penny.
