[SOLD]: Steering Rack repair kit and tool

Hi All,

I have a spare steering rack repair kit for f3x and the associated tool required to remove/install it.

Genuine BMW part no. 32 10 6 891 974, brand new, still sealed in box.

The tool is from a reputable company in the UK, photo below.

I ordered the part from the US early in the year but due COVID it only just arrived and in the meantime I found another supplier to provide the part and complete the work.

There are DIYs and plenty of forum threads about the knocking issue associated with these vehicles, I can attest that the repair kit fixed the steering issues in my 435i. You will need some special grease and know-how to complete the job, but itís not overly challenging.

$100 for both, $60 for part, $40 for tool individually. Postage at buyers expense.

Hey mate , I have been trying to get it booked but Indy shops wont accept the part provided . I read an article and it mentions about vibration meter . Could you confirm if that is needed .

I have found someone to do the work but they are concerned about not having Vibration meter.

Thanks

Hey,

I had the work done at Anthony Costello in Fyshwick (ACT) - they installed the exact same part number. Your indy shop could ask them specifically what they did.

I know in the official BMW instructions some special tools are required (not exactly sure what they are) - however, lots of people on youtube have just installed this in their driveways without anything special other than what I sent you plus some BMW grease.

The reason I purchased the tool was some people had also just tightened their stock rack part with it and that had solved the knocking, at least temporarily.

Hope that helps.
