This would probably work just fine:

Got my e30 covered, thanks to you!

This helped me save a load of time doing a tedious job. Thanks.

I grabbed the information from here:

http://www.klann-online.de/en/Service/Mobile/WebCatalogue/ProductCard/tabid/264/eid/14226/Default.aspx

However looking at realoem it looks like the E46 had atleast two different sizes of axles, the 330i for example has M27x1.5 and the 325i has M24x1.5.

Best to go to http://www.realoem.com look up your vehicle by vin and go to Rear Axle > Output shaft. It should bring you to a page like this:

http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=EY32-EUR-04-2004-E46-BMW-316i&diagId=33_1191

Reference the nut size.

Ordered it thru Amazon Friday. Received it today, and just discovered this M22x1.5 tool is too small.

Where did you get your info from?
(I couldn’t find any other website indicating this tool.)

Are you sure its not suppose to be an M24x1.5??

Desperate in Kansas City.
