    Pilot Bearing

    To those of you that have replaced a clutch, did you use a new pilot bearing and if so, how did you get the old one out of the transmission and the new one in?

    It's a good idea to replace it and I've used a pipe wrench to get them out.

    I don't see any way to get any type of wrench on the bearing, it's embedded into the transmission input shaft....there's just one little hole on the back of the bearing housing and probably requires some special bmw tool which I don't have...

    They are a PITA a literal pain the ass, the last one we did was a nightmare, would not come out, we used heat, we used everything. Finally had to use the die grinder, split it and chisel it out. Do yourself a favor and just head over to harbor freight and pick up Part number 95987. Its designed for blind holes and pilot bearings. Its worth the 75 bucks, trust me.

    Ditto. I ended up spending way too much time breaking/cutting it out. Not worth it.

    There you go. I recommend leaving it alone.
