OE giubo/hardy/driveshaft coupling...

Just a heads-up on the OE supplier for BMW giubos...

Replaced the giubo on my partner's e81 118d today, and noticed that the febi bilstein part I bought had grind marks in rather familiar places... Reminded me of Lemforder suspension/subframe bushes, and TRW arms. Got the part for my e91 330d at the same time, also branded febi bilstein, and it has grind marks in the same places too.

I bought these parts from the seller 'carpartsinmotion' on eBay UK. Though I have no reason to suspect that febi parts from any other supplier would be any different.

Good find - I typically leverage FCP Euro's listings for OE supplier when shopping about. At least for my '08, they list both Corteco and Febi as OE suppliers for the guibo.

Thx for the info too!

Excellent call - I had either forgotten or not realised that


P.S. Fixed the pic in first post

Wikipedia lists guibo as a common misspelling, so I'm keeping half a point

Good lord. Not only have I been misspelling it for years, but mispronouncing it too! Giubo. JOO-boh.

Not GWEE-boh.

Mind. Blown.

I replaced hundreds maybe thousands of them back in the 70's and 80's they were always pronounced Gwee-bow. I named one of my dogs Guibo.

Some early 2002's had 3 on the driveshaft. They came with a metal band on them that you snipped off after installing. I had a 2002 come in leaking oil. Someone left the band on and it sliced a hole into the transmission. Opps!

The daft thing is, I knew it was "joo-bo", as I'd read the Wikipedia article previously (not knowing what a giubo was, under that name)...but for some reason I'd decided it should be spelt the way that didn't make any sense (intentionally)...but somewhere in there I'd got myself all back to front. Oh well!

Also rather embarrassing, because I'm normally a stickler for spelling!
