BMW Axle Shaft Assembly Front Left - GKN 31607505199

605mm OEM replacement axle assembly

It's hard to think that your CV axle is actually a complicated piece of equipment. When you think about it, a CV axle needs to be able to adapt to a wide range of motion between suspension movements and steering inputs while still transmitting power to the wheel. Over thousands of miles, various road and weather conditions, and time axle boots can tear or simply stretch and wear. If a tear occurs in a boot, the grease will leak out allowing for water and dirt to get into the joint. If caught soon enough, you can reboot the axle. However, if it is ignored an axle replacement will be needed. This is usually indicated by drive train vibrations under acceleration and clicking coming from the CV joints.

GKN Loebro is an OEM supplier to BMW for axle shaft and CV assemblies. This completely new unit will restore drivetrain function to your E46 xi model.

Fcp Customer Since 2005

2001 325xit manual 147,000 miles Being a fairly competent mechanic, I usually opt for less expensive parts from FCP. Their lifetime warranty gave me the piece of mind that if I ever had any problems I could easily swap the failed component(s) at a minimal cost. This mindset has worked well over the past 7 years until my wife's 325xit developed a clicking noise from the from axles. A quick inspection revealed that the OEM axle boots had cracked/split. At the time FCP have several replacement options ranging from $170- over $600. I chose the least expensive option and quickly learned why those axles were so cheap! After the install I could feel a vibration under acceleration in 1st-3rd gear. Thinking this problem was a separate issue, I replaced the Guibo, driveshaft, and rear diff bushing. 7,000 miles later, the boots completely disintegrated which prompted me to replace them with a rebuilt set from A1Cardone (based on a few suggestions on a popular E46 forum). That set lasted about 13,000 before failing and the vibration upon acceleration problem still persisted. This time I opted for the GKN set and they made all the difference in the world! Not only did they correct the vibration problem, they made the car easier to maneuver while modulating the clutch due to I believe to be a huge decrease in drivetrain play (that I thought was caused by a failing transfercase. For anyone considering a less expensive product, DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME, and don't forget to order a pair of driveshaft seals 33-10-7-505-601/104 or 01025620B(order 3 if you've never replaced them before).

This Is The One You Want.

I didn't waste time with the aftermarket/rebuilt axles. It's been about 6000 and no issues. They're a little expensive, but these are the ones you will keep for a long time.

BMW axle shafts without the BMW name or "price". Still quite a bit more than lesser axles (I tried them) save yourself the time and headache and get these!
