BMW 330i, 325i, e46, Lower Control Arms and Tie Rods How to Change out, Repair
How to remove and replace your steering tie rod(s) and lower control arm(s) in an e46 BMW Sport. If your BMW's front end is clunking when you hit the brakes or your car wanders on uneven pavement, it's usually your lower control arm ball joints (built into the lower control arm) or your control arm bushing. Under normal driving conditions you should replace the lower control arm bushing every 60k miles and the entire control arm and bushing as a set every 120k miles. I also replace the steering tie rods because you are already in the area and it provides better clearance to remove the lower control arms. Check your tires because if your front suspension has degraded, you probably are experiencing uneven wear in the tires. Always wear safety glasses or goggles and gloves for protection. Always get a proper alignment soon after this procedure. After hearing from other BMW owners, the part brand recommended would not be Deutche Parts, but Lemforder, Meyle, Febi, and maybe Karlyn. The Lemforder and Meyle are more OEM related and have proven to be superior steering/suspension hardware.

Replacing front control arm bushings on BMW 3 series 84 thru 05 (E30, E36, E46)

Need additional tech help? Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- In this DIY and How-To video, we'll outline the procedure for properly using the control arm bushing remover and installer tool for removing or installing the front control arm bushings on BMW 3-series models from 1984 through 2005. One of the most common sources for front-end vibrations on BMWs and MINIs is worn front control arm bushings. If all other front-end suspension and steering parts are verified to be in proper functioning condition, it is likely that the control arm bushings have become soft and are allowing the suspension control arms to oscillate, causing the vibrations that can be felt through the chassis and the steering wheel. Replacing the control arm bushings on the 3-series BMW models from 1984 through 2005 (E30, E36, E46), can be accomplished by most DIYers in just a couple hours .... If we have the proper tools. In addition the a floor jack, jack-stands and common metric tools ranging from 16mm through 19mm (in most cases), we need the control arm bushing removal and installation tool kit. In this DIY we will show how to remove and replace the control arm bushings on the BMW 3-series models as noted above, using the control arm bushing replacement tool set. Note that we will be installing the pre-assembled control arm bushing and mount bracket assemblies. This will allow us to replace the bushings without access to a hydraulic press. TOOLS: Control arm bushing removal and install tool: http://www.bavauto.com/fland.asp?part=kt20249 Bentley repair manual; as applicable to BMW or MINI model: http://www.bavauto.com/se1.asp?dept_id=5228 ½" drive socket set, to include; 16mm through 19mm sockets (depending on model), ratchet and extensions. 24mm combination wrench 27mm combination wrench or ½" drive socket Pry bars PARTS: Control arm bushings with mount brackets, as applicable to BMW or MINI model: http://www.bavauto.com/se1.asp?dept_id=162 This general outline for 3-series control arm bushing replacement assumes that the proper Bentley repair manual is at hand. PROCEDURE: 1) Lift and properly support the front of the vehicle, so that the front wheels are off the ground. 2) Remove the wheel/tire assembly. NOTE: Some models may require removal of splash panels or shields in order to access the control arm bushing mount brackets. 3) Remove the rear control arm bushing mount bracket by removing the two bolts securing the bracket to the vehicle. Note the position and overall relationship of the bracket and how it is mounted to the uni-body frame rail, for the future re-installation. 4) Use the control arm bushing removal/install tool to remove the bushing and bracket assembly from the end of the control arm pin. 5) Press the new bushing/mount assembly onto the control arm, using the bushing removal/install tool. Note that some urethane bushings may not require a press for this operation. Note that rubber bushings require a lubricant to allow them to be pressed onto the arm. BMW specifies a special lube that dries after assembly .... we like to use Silicone spray, diluted dish soap or hair spray as alternatives. Take note of any alignment marks, as well as the proper orientation (left / right and front / back) of the mount bracket. Most of the applications will install with the mounting arm, on the mount bracket, being parallel and in-line (on the same plane) with the forward end of the control arm. 6) Install the bolts for the bushing mount bracket and torque to specs (see the proper Bentley manual). 7) Replace the splash shields and the wheels/tires and torque the lug bolts to the proper torque spec. Lower the vehicle. -------- All products noted in this video can be purchased in our online store, http://www.bavauto.com/, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- In this two part video series Otto will show you how to replace front control arms and control arm bushings on a typical BMW 3-series 84-05 and MINI. Note that while these procedures are shown on an E30 3-series (84-91) BMW, they can also be applied to the E36 3-Series (92-98), E46 3-series (99-05) and MINI models. Of the 3-series and MINI models listed, some will look slightly different or have slightly different hardware but, the basic points and procedures are the same. --- Part one - Control arm and bushing installation steps In this video we will install the front control arm and control arm bushing on a BMW 3-series (and MINI). Part-1 covers the removal. For a list of the parts and tools used, see the accompanying BLOG post at: http://blog.bavauto.com/go/control-arm (Steps 1-10 are in the Part-1, removal video) 11) Press the bushing/mount assembly onto the control arm, using the bushing removal/install tool. Note that some urethane bushings may not require a press for this operation. Note that rubber bushings require a lubricant to allow them to be pressed onto the arm. BMW specifies a special lube that dries after assembly .... we like to use diluted dish soap or hair spray as alternatives. Take note of any alignment marks, as well as the proper orientation (left / right and front / back) of the mount bracket. Most of the applications will install with the mounting arm, on the mount bracket, being parallel and in-line (on the same plane) with the forward end of the control arm. Note that the bushing and bracket assembly can also be installed on the arm after the new control arm has been installed on the vehicle. 12) Install the control arm and bushing assembly to the vehicle. Insert the ball joint spindles into the knuckles and start the nuts onto the threads. Install the bolts for the bushing mount bracket and torque to specs (see the proper Bentley manual). Tap the bottom of each ball joint to secure the tapered pin into the knuckle and tighten the nuts to the proper torque spec. If the ball-joint pin will not seat, and turns when the nut is turned, use a jack to apply upward pressure on the underside of the ball-joint, pressing the pin securely into the seat. 13) Install or reconnect the swaybar end link assembly. 14) Replace the wheel/tire and torque the lug bolts to the proper torque spec. Lower the vehicle. --- All products noted in this video can be purchased in our online store, http://www.bavauto.com/, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
