Re: Center drive shaft mount 4KQ



This part is documented as replaceble in the archives. Its a BMW part
number for 4Kqs. They may need to modify the mounting by mig welding on
your mounting tabs. I just had mine done (200q) using a BMW 325 part
(may not be the same for 4Kq). Its a simple repair - remember to have
them mark the driveshaft (index) prior to diassemble. The cost of the
part is about 40.00. This is normal wear and tear...
Also avail from Blau ready to bolt in for about 150.00.
