BMW E36 323is Rear Trailing Arm Bushing Failure

Warning: Language. Please excuse my adolescent swearing. ***Click 'show more' for deails*** Here's a video I recorded some time in 2005-ish with an old friend, Richie. I used a throwaway Logitech 4000 USB webcam, lots of duct tape (...like 2 yards), and a laptop. This video is almost a decade old, and depicts a failed suspension bushing under various loading conditions. You are looking at a failed driver side Rear Trailing Arm Bushing (RTAB) of a 1998 BMW 323is (E36 chassis, stock GM automatic transmission [built in France]). The bottom of the video frame is the front of the car, the top is the rear. Notice how the trailing arm (the thing that's moving in the video) is able to wobble about as it mushes around inside the RTA console as the rear wheel undergoes loading forces. This is a perfect example of: A) A failed RTA Bushing. B) Why you should install RTAB limiters to prevent this kind of behavior, and double the life of your bushings. When the Rear Trailing Arm (RTA) moves left to right, the rear toe for that wheel is changing. If both left and right bushings are torn, you get toe out under acceleration, toe in during hard braking, and unstable toe over bumps and rough terrain - resulting in an unstable feeling rear end. This is bad. My car was crab-walking all over the place because of this bushing. I was having the 'rear steering' effect. When the car is under hard acceleration, the arm is allowed to move towards the front of the car (down,in reference to the video frame). Under hard braking, the arm moves backwards (up in reference to the video frame). Up and down (in and out in reference to the video frame) and rotational motion occurs when the wheel travels up and down over bumps. The bushing is there to assist in the absorption of road vibrations and isolate the car body from the wheel to increase passenger comfort and reduce noise. It's NOT there to allow the suspension geometry and alignment to change on the fly (as mine is in the video) What I did in the video: Accelerate from a standstill through 1st gear, into 2nd, and then cycled full on and full off of the throttle 4 times, then drove at about 55 mph on some country roads (see video statistics link for google maps location). I then swerved left and right about 7-8 times at the end of the video (with no traffic, within lane constraints), you can see how the arm reacts to slow suspension travel. Dialog: talking about how awful the bushing is, then about how my passenger window seal is broken and you have to open the door so the window seals. I tried to repair it with rubber cement and it looked melted - and failed. We cross paths with a police officer, and we swear a lot. I've grown up since then and recognize that is in bad taste and reflects quite poorly upon my character. In retrospect I regret my choice of vernacular during that age period.

How to replace e36 trailing arm bushings without special tools (and installing POWERFLEX bushings)
Another diy video of me this time i am replacing one of my rtabs with powerflex bushings. No special tools necessary although having an impact wrench helps. Tools needed are: 10mm socket, 18mm socket, 17mm socket, breaker bar, drill, 18mm wrench or 3/4 , hammer, flat head screw driver, copper anti seize $1.50. Since you will be under the car, take necessary precautions and wear eye protection when marking the bolt location. They are dirty! I did not video myself hammering away but i did show the proper way to hammer the bushing out. Enjoy and goodluck!

1998 BMW 328i (E36) Start-Up, Full Vehicle Tour and Quick Drive
*First of all, I filmed this video back in April of this year, when I was still using the slightly older format compared to what I am using right now. Hence, pardon me for the mistakes and whatnot found throughout the video. Anyways, I wanted to film the whole range of BMW 3-Series model lineup available, from the E21 till the F30. However, after a long period of time of not being able to find the E21 and E30, I just decided to go ahead and post the videos that I have so far, starting with the E36 3-Series. So, this will be the second out of six videos showcasing the 3-Series lineup. This E36 is slightly different than the previous E36 video right before this one as this one is the so-called "LCI" model that is life-cycle impulse or facelift in BMW speak.





Best BMW E36 E46 RTAB tool - Rear Trailing Arm Bushing Tool
Best BMW E36 E46 RTAB (rear trailing arm bushing) tool ^_^ Also works for pressing E46 M3 FCAB (front control arm bushing) in and out of the lollipop brackets! Update 03/13/14: Details and contact information I've received messages via youtube unfortunately I hardly ever check messages here so please if you are interested in the tool email me at kaiv_one@yahoo.com PLEASE READ BELOW BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS THAT ARE ALREADY ANSWERED HERE! A few notes about the tool: The tool is custom made with a lead time of 2 weeks. I currently have 3 tools in stock available right away. (March 2014) Note also that the tool is made of heavy duty steel. The rod is grade B7. Two nuts are welded on it for a good grab (19mm socket). Unlike the other tools out there my tool is designed to bottom out on installation so you can't press the new bushing too far in accidentally! It's also designed to do both removal and installation of the bushing from the outside! Overall it's not the cheapest tool (both construction and price) but It's a pretty solid design! If you only plan to do your own car there are cheaper tools out there but if you do those bushings on a regular basis my tool is a no brainer! Also note that the tool doubles as a FCAB (front control arm bushing) puller/installer for E46 M3. Yes, this tool will also press FCABs in and out of the 'lollipop' backets. Two tools in one ;) My builder recently moved to a new bigger warehouse so unfortunately I had to raise the price slightly to $250. This includes shipping to the continental U.S.via priority mail. Again email me at kaiv_one@yahoo.com for any questions. Feedback: feel free to check bimmerforums and m3forum (member "kaiv") We can make other tools for other bushings (BMW only). Thanks! -Kevin Picture link: http://s11.postimg.org/hoqxi65s3/download_4.jpg
