With the rear cover cleaned and re-sealed time to clean and re-seal the output flanges. Using a pry bar get the output flange off and seems to slip out pretty easily.


Unbolt the 6 bolts and using the pry bar pull the output housing part.


With this part off you can see the two different seals, one on the outer and the other on the inner that need to be taken off and replaced with new seals.








Here’s a pic of the snap ring that the output flange locks into but the seal I got wasn’t the complete set where it has both the seal and snap ring but the old one will be just fine, just make sure it’s there and placed correctly.

Finish by re-installing everything.




Ok, time to finish the other side.






Lastly I cleaned the support mounts off my old/ spare diff and placed on this 3.23 diff and filled with new fluid. Any 75w-90 gear diff is good…I usually use Amsoil but couldn’t find Mobil1 gear fluid under the 75w-90 so I went with Castrol which is good too. 1.7-8qts needed

Chris...an update just for you! lol jk for everyone...

Update (January 15, 2013): Hey guys…Sorry for the long awaited update as since past I have been busy with school, gf, work and life. I have had a lot going on and on my last semester at ASU but looking at completing this within mid February. Just placed an order with getbmwparts.com for the last little things like transmission mounting screws/ bolts, other misc screws/ bolts, grommets, clutch hard line/ pipes, rear shifter support. The last that’s needed is clutch and flywheel which I will order this (F1 racing flywheel w/ sachs clutch kit): gripforce.com/sachs-cl...4-e36-e39/



Within the next week I’ll be pilling info. on the various processes for this swap and DIY as there is the manual pedal swap and wiring, manual shifter install + electrical for backup light wiring, trans program error and cluster display eliminated re-wiring, manual transmission + flywheel & clutch install, driveshaft & diff install. Sounds like a lot but the only time-wise install will be the pedals I feel. I’m back on track and ready to finish this!

Here’s a Christmas gift I can install as well (Vogtland Springs) Smile


During that long awaiting time I also obtained another car for cheap (’03 Lincoln Aviator 85k miles) and is currently my DD while the bimmer rests and waits plus I don’t have to complete the swap quickly as I have a DD that I can drive which is very nice.

Update (February 12, 2013): Hey guys! I have been awaiting a package from getbmwparts which are all new transmission mounting hardware, clutch pressure hard piping and two grommets. Just got it in as the 2 pressure hard pipes were backordered from Germany, so a nice 3 week wait. I placed an order for a few more things I need that I overlooked and just need to order my clutch and flywheel as well and get this swap started toward the end of the month with my schedule.
I’m keeping myself very organized and on top of what I need and pictures to show me where certain parts go so I’m not lost during the swap. Here’s the mounting hardware bagged specifically and color coded on the sheet with the number:




I don’t have the powder coating tools like a member on bfc that powder coats all his parts and look amazing but decided to spark up my diff a little with some gray and black high temp painted parts. Looks great now lol…I was also able to get busy and make a table to place over the transmission and hold my diff and pedals off the ground and also covered the Transmission opening so it doesn’t get dusty/ dirty inside while it sits a tad longer.




Here’s my 5spd swap drawer w/ my shifter linkage components, clutch pressure components, pilot bearing, tranny mount, etc.


Thanks for looking!

Hey slaughter, I have an E46 M3 diff that I want to swap into my car. What exactly did you replace on your diff? Just the items shown? or was there more to it behind the scenes?

Thanks Chris!

Thanks Fabian!

Chris K...I will shoot you a text!

Jeremiah...All I replaced was the few gaskets which were for the rear cover and the two sides the thin-loop gasket and the larger gasket fit inside and that is it, so just the items shown.
