Question about 2004 BMW 5 Series
I have a 2004 5.30i (with a 2003 build date, not sure if that matters?)
The dealer found a few things wrong when I had it in for a recall fix. I'd like to fix these myself because of the cost.
My number one priority is the upper rear control arm replacement.
I'm trying to figure out what this is and what I need to do.
The exact words of the dealer is the rubber part is causing extra movement in the suspension that doesn't need to be there. I'm thinking this means the bushing needs to be replaced.
Can anyone help with diagrams/pictures or advice on how to replace this control arm unit? or what special tools i might need?
Go to Rockauto.com, click on the online catalogue. Select BMW then your year and model. Click on suspension and then control arm. When it shows you the part click on the letter "i" and it will show you a picture of the part. Also not a bad place to purchase parts, I use them all the time.
