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.

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 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 removal steps In this video we will remove the front control arm and control arm bushing on a BMW 3-series (and MINI). Part-2 covers the installation. For a list of the parts and tools used, see the accompanying BLOG post at: http://blog.bavauto.com/go/control-arm 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. 3) If the swaybar end link is connected to the control arm (as on this E30 and most E36 3-series), remove the nut from the underside of the control arm, that secures the end link bracket to the control arm. 4) Release the outer control arm ball joint as follows; Loosen the nut on the top of the ball joint's tapered pin, but do not fully remove it. Using a 2 lb to 3 lb short handled sledgehammer (properly called, a drilling hammer), give the knuckle area a series of sharp-forceful blows. If the ball joint's tapered pin does not release from the knuckle, try using a pry-bar to provide downward pressure on the end of the control arm .... while hitting the knuckle with the hammer. This can take a good series of multiple HARD blows with the hammer. If the tapered pin is still not releasing, you will have to resort to a "pickle-fork". Insert the pickle-fork between the ball joint and the knuckle and use the hammer to force the pickle-fork between the two parts. If you get the pickle fork as far as it will go and the joint is still not separating, try repeating the blows to the knuckle (as in the first sequence), with the pickle-fork in place. NOTE: Never use a pickle-fork to separate the ball joints if you intend to reuse the control arm (and ball joints), as the fork will typically tear the ball joint's rubber boot. 5) Release the inner ball joint in a similar fashion to the outer ball joint, with the exception that you will be hitting the cast area of the control arm, where the ball-joint mounts into the arm. Note that it may be necessary to resort to the pickle-fork due to a lack of area to use the hammer, as a first course of action. 6) 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. 7) Fully remove the nuts on the ball joints and lower the control arm and bushing assembly from the vehicle. NOTE: If you are re-using the control arm bushing mounting brackets and installing new bushings in the brackets, follow steps 8-10. If you are installing pre-assembled bushing and bracket assemblies, skip to step 11. 8) Use the control arm bushing removal/install tool to remove the bushing and bracket assembly from the end of the control arm pin. 9) Using a hydraulic press, press the bushing out of the bushing mount bracket. 10) Using a hydraulic press, press the new bushing into the mount bracket. Note if there are any alignment marks to tend with. The new bushing will either install in the same manner as the old original bushing (alignment marks, etc.), or it will come with an installation sheet outlining the proper installation. Now, click on to Part-2 and continue with the installation of the new control arm and bushing assemblies. --- 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.

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 control arm and bushing replacement on an E60, E61 chassis 5-series BMW (3 series 04-10). This procedure can be followed for all 5-series models from 2004 through 2011 (exc 2010 GT), 6-series (E63, 64) 2004 through 2010 (and coupe through 2013), 7-series (E65, 66) 2001 through 2009 as well as 3-series 06-on (E90, E91, E92. E93 and F30), 5-series 11-on (F07, F10), 6-series (F12, F13), 7-series (F01, F02), Z4 (E89) and X1, X3, X5 and X6 models with minor detail differences. The applicable Bentley repair manual will detail the specific procedures and torque values for your given BMW model, to include those for the models and chassis not listed here. PARTS USED: • Upper (thrust/strut) control arm * New lock-nuts for ball-joint and bushing bolt TOOLS USED: * Steering Knuckle Spreader Tool - • 3/8" drive Torx bit socket set * 3/8" drive Allen metric bit socket set * 3/8" drive ratchet and extensions • 1/2" drive sockets, universal joint, extensions and ratchet, 16mm - 21mm • open-end wrench set, 16mm-21mm • Various flat-head and phillips screwdrivers 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. 3) Remove the under-chassis splash panel(s). 4) Remove the nut on the outer control arm ball joint as follows; Loosen the nut on the end of the ball joint's through-pin. Once the nut is loose, the through-pin will rotate with the nut (this is NOT a tapered pin as is common on earlier designs). Use the applicable Torx or Allen bit, inserted into the end of the through-pin, to secure the pin and remove the nut. NOTE: DO NOT use a pickle-fork (or other ball-joint separator tools) to separate the ball joint from the steering knuckle. The ball-joint through pin is not tapered and does not require any type of separator tool. 5) Loosen the nut on the through-bolt for the control arm bushing mount. 7) Remove the strut clamp through-bolt and the remaining bolt securing the swaybar endlink bracket to the steering knuckle. Move the swaybar endlink bracket aside. 8) Use the steering knuckle strut clamp spreader tool to slightly widen the strut clamp. 9) Pull the steering knuckle assembly down a few inches so that the control arm ball-joint can be pulled up and out of the steering knuckle assembly (see step 10 before attempting to pull the ball-joint out). 10) Remove the control arm bushing through-bolt. 11) Remove the control arm ball-joint from the steering knuckle. 12) Install the new control arm by inserting the ball-joint into the steering knuckle and the bushing up into the mounting bracket. Insert the bushing through-bolt. 13) Push the steering knuckle up to seat the strut fully into the clamping saddle (a hydraulic jack may be useful to push the steering knuckle assembly up). Be sure that the strut is properly seated into the clamping saddle. 14) Remove the steering knuckle spreader tool. 15) Install the swaybar endlink bracket with the bracket bolt and the steering knuckle through-bolt. Tighten the bolts to the torque specified in the Bentley repair manual. 16) Using the Torx or Allen bit and open-end wrench, tighten the ball-joint hut to the specified torque (Bentley repair manual). 17) Install the control arm bushing through-bolt nut. Do not fully tighten the nut. NOTE: The control arm must be positioned at normal ride height before tightening the control arm bushing through-bolt and nut. This can be accomplished by carefully (and with extreme caution) jacking under the control arm ball-joint until the chassis shows signs of lightening on the jack-stand or by lowering the vehicle onto ramps (so you can still work under to access the bushing bolt and nut). 12) We're sorry, but the description can not be any longer (youtube requirement).

Upper and Lower Rear Control Trailing Arm Bushing Removal and Installation BMW 3 Series e46
The car felt unstable in the rear, like it was in a cross wind all the time. The rear tires were worn on the inside too. I replaced the front trailing arm bushing and decided to change the upper and lower bushings too. The bushing tool is HCB-A1087





DIY BMW E46 XI lower control arm and bushing replacement left side
https://twitter.com/#!/bullshitkorner I've looked for videos on the BMW E46 xi series on how to change the control arm and bushing but haven't found any at all. So I made the first out of 2 videos on how to change the left and ride side. This video is about changing the left side. the easiest way would be to remove the plastic skid pans, remove the tire. there is 2 bolts holding the bushing on, remove those bolts. then remove the 2 bolts holding the inner tie rod. once that is done remove the nut on the other ball joint and use a pickle fork to split it from the strut. ONce that is done it shall fall off. use a puller to remove the bushing and hopefully you have a hydraulic press to remove the collar or purchase ones that are ready to bolt in. install the opposite way you took it off.

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.
