Mine didn't come with that little plastic cap either, I guess you just swap it over?


Thanks. I ordered Bosch yesterday and just delivered few hours ago. I still have no time to open it but the picture I saw at their website exactly same with the plastic cap sealed on top.

Actually ZF-Bosch is direct oem replacement. No modification needed. All the stretch bolts and nuts must be replaced.
  • 32136769390 (4 qty) and 07119905032 (4 qty) = 50 Nm + 90 deg turn
  • 31106772199 (5 qty) and 31106779393 (3 qty) = 56 Nm + 90 deg turn
  • 33326760668 (2 qty) and 33176760343 (2 qty) = 100 Nm + 90 deg turn (-/+ 15 deg.)
  • 33326760668 (2 qty) And 31106769441 (2 qty) = 100 Nm + 90 deg. turn

I doubt mine will ever see a track so I didnít worry about changing out the bolts for new, just torqued them down as normal. I do change the crush washers on everything and also there was a special banjo bolt on one of the hoses that had some sort of valve or screen filter in it that I changed as well.

Hardest part for me was getting all of the air out...took like 10 starts and wheel turning cycles. Had to wait like 10 mins between each so the bubbles would come to the top of the reservoir each time. The PS pump was really unhappy for the first couple for sure.

2007 e63 M6 - All black
2008 e64 650i - All black
1998 e38 740il - All black

Seems I like black cars !

Yupp, I bought all new banjos including the valve one (TIS has a special mention of that for some reason). The subframe bolts are almost certainly torque to yield; the reinforcement plate bolts call for replacement as well, but I'm a bit skeptical there due to the low torque spec (50somethign + 90).

How has the BBB steering rack been behaving? I need to replace my rack too and I'm considering ordering this one as well.
