Diff Lab BMW 188L/LW Diff Rebuild Kit (2006-current) BMW 188L/LW Diff Rebuild Kit (2006-current)

This is a full genuine rebuild kit containing everything needed to fully rebuild the BMW 188L/LW differential. This kit fits differentials from most 6 cylinder vehicles which use ball bearings. Use this kit for most late model 1-series, 2-series, 3-series, 4-series, 5-series, 6-series, 7-series and X-series BMWs with the common diff bearing failure. This includes most E81, E82, E87, E88, F21, F21, F22, F45, F46, E90, E92, F30, 125i, 130i, 325i, 330i, 335i autoamtic vehicles with the ball bearing type differential. These differentials often suffer noise, differential failure and bearing failure. Now it's possible to fix your noisy 168L/LW sized diff. This is a much better option versus a used differential which may not last, and is often cheaper too. Diff Lab rebuilds these diffs in-house and offers these diffs on exchange. This is the most complete kit available anywhere in the world, and it is the cheapest.

The kit includes:

  • 3x genuine seals
  • 4x genuine ball bearings
  • crush sleeve
  • lock plate
  • drain plug washer
A 188K and 188L/LW shim kit is not included, but this would be required if you are changing the ring and pinion, or adding an LSD. You could not re-assemble the diff without a shim kit if you're using non-original internals. Your pre-loads and backlash will be way off target, and you risk permanent damage to the differential. No locally sourced Chinese made seals are stocked or supplied at Diff Lab.

Diff Lab stocks replacement gear sets to repair the problematic X3, X4 and X5 diffs, which can be found here: BMW X5 Ring and Pinion Sets.
