DIY M47N2 "Rubber Boot" Fix

Hi guys,

since I had to use duct tape to keed the damn thing in place myself, I have decided to make replacement parts for the "rubber boot" in 3dsmax and print them (took 7 hours to print but used only ~2 worth of fillaments to make instead of the ~22-25 for a new part).

I guess some of you might need these as well.

Part number 13717795284. CGTrader BMW E90/E91 M47N2 "Rubber Boot" Ends

You can download the STL file for free here: CGTrader BMW E90/E91 M47N2 "Rubber Boot" Ends

Don't mind the BS $181.54 printing price - it's there to have 3D preview of the models availabe form Sculpteo. Just sellect Download instead of "Get Printed" and you are good to go.

My e90 has done 125k when I bought it and had the rubber boot taped on. I bought a brand new replacement from BMW parts store for, I think about 30?

Mine was imported from Italy with 216000 km driven. I guess the constant head did it's part in ruining the floppy rubber ends.

How often it is put on and off again most should have an impact as well.

In any case, it was hanging on one end only when I purchased the car, so I had to use tape to keep in place. Considered buying used, but it's in high demand (a lot of people have this problem) and hard to get, while a new one is just too expensive for a simple part like that.

Since I have the skills in 3D modeling and a 3D printer lying around, this was the best solution in my case.

Mine failed too. Replacement part took about 4 months to come in. It's a new design which I'm guessing will fix the issue. Looks smarter in the bay too.

Not a bad idea if you have access to a 3D printer.

Looked at them! Was out of stock when I needed it But precisely, for a BMW new part it's pretty cheap! It was about the same from the BMW parts centre.

It's really not that expensive, and the new upgraded part looks much nicer too
