Victory over small german car!


Recommended Posts

Yesterday I finally reinstalled my half shafts back into The Mighty Cabriolet. The Previous Owner had installed 4 link-type u-joints and did not bother to refresh the nylon locking nuts. As a result, they had begun to back off and some of the bolts were getting chewed up.


I bought a set of Guibo type joints from Germany and all new hardware. Now have 2 link style at the gearbox and guibo style at the swing arm, as BMW has suggested. Feeling a little more secure how driving it now.


Next up: reinstalling the front bumper.
