Rod Bearing Replacement – BMW 3 Series E90 / E92 / E92 M3 S65
Fitting Available - Please email email@example.com for a quote.
BMW rod bearings have become an infamous talking point among E9x M3 owners and in some cases have failed before 50,000 miles. Rod bearings are wearing out sooner than expected and their replacement should be considered a required preventative maintenance item before 70,000 miles.
We were replacing rod bearings and carrying out engine builds on the S65 when the cars were still available to buy new.
When we carry out rod bearing replacement, the following parts are used
- 8 x MAHLE upper rod bearing shells
- 8 x MAHLE lower rod bearing shells
- 16 x ARP rod bolts
- OEM Sump Gasket
- OEM BMW oil pickup tube O-ring
- Oil & Filter change - MOTUL 8100 Power 5w50
- 1 pair of engine mounts
This process takes 2 days to carry out.
