I know that when they installed my F3x LSD they commented that the fastening system from the LSD to the half shafts was completely different than in the past.

The earlier 3-series used the old tried and true flanges with individual bolts. So it was easy to spin as you removed and reinstalled each bolt.

But the F3x uses a lighter system that holds the half shaft on with a small circlip that fits into a groove on the shaft. Needs a special tool that fits in a pops it off the circlip. See photos.
