Topic How reinstall fork seal holders? By janw Date 28.08.19 18:39

See the result in picture 1. See the heroes that made it possible in picture 2. And, ladies and gentlemen, notice the battle scars in that 100-year-old piece of plank. I am usually a peaceful man and it is difficult to appreciate the amount of violence necessary to move those seal holders into place.

Topic How reinstall fork seal holders? By janw Date 28.08.19 10:03
Hi C1 fellows,

These holders (see picture) turned out to be much easier to remove than reinstall. The fit is tight and when I apply force to push a holder onto its fork slider it tilts and gets stuck. According to the BMW Service Manual, there is a drift punch (BMW 31 5 712) that is to be used when reinstalling. And of course I don't have it. Any tips for how to do this job without the tool?

Thanks, /Jan

Thanks for a very useful compilation, Clive! However, I note that the rear wheel nut shares its part no with the variator; the part no for the rear wheel nut is 363 17657 904, I believe. /Jan
