So you basically donít know how to change the pinion bearings; the pinion bearing set is the most important part of the entire unit and itís a wear item

R3vtards will continue to r3vtard even when reality calls

if there is play/ noise i change them. i have access to a transmission shop where i do them. i also did not do the carrier bearings on that one. it all depends on the original condition.

you are correct tho. if i can leave the pinion alone i will.

basically lack of skills/ proper equipment;

The pinion bearings and setup parts should be fitted with new parts along with everything else.

Anything else is r3vtard spec action.

Itís easy to properly replace everything and set up everything if one can read the Oem Bmw tis directions and execute.

Shims, I have found, stay with the gearset.

They may not be exactly right in a new case, but they are usually pretty darned close.
Certainly better than starting from scratch.

Having done something like a dozen or so... and only (so far) having lost one.

t
YES, I changed the pinion bearings...
