Joe, did yours have play in it? I don’t recall when I changed the shaft Guibo that mine had any play.

Thank you,

Omair

Mine just looked well worn. I was going to change it as preventative maintenance since I had everything disassembled. This quite some time ago and when I went to order a new one I found they were no longer available. I just received a notice that they are now available which I found as a bit of a surprise so I posted in case anyone had a need. Some of the parts for these cars are getting harder to find (e.g. Power Steering pump).

As soon as I got the email saying it was back in stock I ordered it.

The plastic/rubber was gone around 2 of the u-joint caps at the top of the shaft. I only had a little bit of play, but knew it was a matter of time before all lubrication would be gone.

I keep hoping as e36 prices trend up OE and BMW suppliers will start to bring back more of the important NLA pieces.
