Default 535ix ********* demount - 01-19-2019, 01:43 AM

Hello guys,
Because in germany the 535i E61 is not available I have imported one.*It s a 535ix
Problem is that the mechanics do not know this car and I canīt buy tuning parts like ********* or FMIC for the car. Import to germany is expensive.
I would like to de-catt my oem *********.
My mechanic need to know how to demount the *********.Is it necessary to drain the front axle or is it only "out and in" without big effort?
Many thankf or your help!
Regards from germany!
Detlef

Really no one who knows more?
Bye

I just finished my kitten less install on my wagon the other month. Took me a weekend but I was in no hurry and took my time. I pretty much followed this guide from AR Designs. Though this is on a 3 series it's pretty similar. You do not have to remove the steering rack like they did in the video. You also do not need to remove the front axle, at least I did not. Space is very tight on the e61 but a couple swivel sockets and a angle socket wrench worked really well. How to install AR Design ********* - YouTube
I personally went with the AR designs pipe$ over the VSRF. Quality is a little better in my opinion but will definitely run you a bit more money. Hope this helps!

Thank you so much for your input on this. I also have an E61 and plan to remove my down pipe$ soon to inspect my wastegates so this gives me help since I can't find much online at all regarding the xDrive models

When you say

Do you mean something like the wrench in this photo (from a Pelican post)?

I used this type. 3/8 in. Drive Professional Flex Head Long Handle Ratchet There is a lot if similarity between the x-drive and the rwd models. Main difference being, there's a big ass drive axle is the way. Space is just very tight and was a pretty straight forward job in my opinion.
