tip of the hat to you.
on mine we had to lower the tranny and remove the exhaust, there was no way to be done from the top 100%.
mine is e90 maybe it's easier on e92.
yeah i went under there and there was no way i could do all that so I went up top and I saw that I could at a minimum take the circlip off from the top - then it was the point of no return....not saying it was easy or fast for sure - it took me like 5 hours to do. A lot of the time was spent going back to the forum and also searching for lost parts that fell into the abyss - good thing I took all the under belly panels off bc I got lucky that my bearing was found after it fell through.
there is a DIY on here from bavarianbullet that I used but didnt modify the cup but i see how it would have made installing the cir clip a lot easier.
i have to do it again though bc although i followed UUC directions it was still backwards - sigh - they said it happens....
