Need help with P/N compatibility

I need a replacement driveshaft. I see some on EBay with the same part number but a different number following the dash. I believe this to be the rev number. Can anyone confirm compatibility?

Mine is 7558504-04

I found a 7558504-03

Will it work?

Thanks!

The numbers after the dash is usually the index number. Which is a revised/updated number/part.

Does that mean the -03 and -04 should be interchangeable?

Yeah would say yes. What's your year make model? I bet those numbers are based off Bmw numbers, which you could compare to realoem.com.

Those are not BMW part numbers, nor do they resemble any.

Just a guess but it's possible that BMW didn't actually make the driveshafts and that the number you see is the OE manufacturers number. That's the case for the ABS pump for example.

I believe that there are different driveshafts for automatic vs manual transmissions, and in addition, there were changes in length at least twice pre-LCI and at least once again for LCI. Be very careful.

Go to realoem.com, enter your VIN and see what it comes up with for a part number. Then search for that on-line.

They could be the last 7 numbers of a part.

They are not
Ok, I'm not saying those actually numbers are BMW part numbers, I'm saying that that format of numbers could be numbers for a BMW part. That's why I asked him year/make/model

Yes, year/make/model and/or VIN would help

OK - I take it all back!

According to RealOEM the current part number for the 335is DCT driveshaft is:

26107614433

However, that supercedes this number:

26107558504 (1453mm long)

Which as previously suggested by WoodE30, contains the last 7 digits of the number present on the OP's driveshaft.

So I was completely wrong, once again.

Yeah a lot of times BMW or vendors shorten the part number to the last 6 digits, I saw it a lot when I was looking for a M3 sway bar. The oem bmw sticker on the m3 sway bar I have is like that, only has the last 6 digits then a - rev/index number
