Not mine, but helped a friend change out the left rear axle on his 219K 2002 330xi. Managed to do it without dropping the exhaust or sway bar. Disconnected both control arms from the trailing arm and used a ratchet strap to pull it out far enough to clear the spines. The replacement went in easier than the old one came out. The camber is off but we marked it and got as close as we could considering the tang on the eccentric washer broke off. The axle came out of an 02 very, fit perfectly. Not bad for $40.

Thanks! I think it does, it took me a few times to get it right, I am a perfectionist when it comes to this car. But, my Pixel does have a really good camera

No more stone chips above my windshield, no more scuff back by the antenna that was there when I bought the car.

I have to ask, how did you get a good angle on the nozzle?

I'm lucky I didn't fall and bust my ass!


Would hate to have been working on an X5.

Yeah, I would have fallen, guaranteed...

I canít imagine an X5 roof spray is easy, even in a booth/shop thatís equipped with it. But then again, no one can see up there so ďallís goodĒ

As an owner of an X5, I can assure you I would see it.

It gets wax just like the rest of it.
