1992-2002 BMW E36 3-Series Z3M Power Steering Rack and Pinion Gear OEM
This steering rack was taken from a 1998 328is Coupe with 123k miles. The input shaft splines have a light coating of rust, but no deep or serious damage. The motion is smooth and normal, and there is no irregular play between input and output movements. The housing has no rubbing or cracks, and all the mounting points are intact.
Details can be viewed in the photos. This is a used original BMW part. The pictures are photos of the actual part you will receive. All parts are guaranteed as described and working for 30 days, unless they are stated AS-IS condition.If we verify compatibility using your vehicle VIN number we guarantee proper fitment. Labor costs will not be reimbursed. Rarely, large or difficult to package items will take a day or two longer. Which side does this part fit? Left = Driver side, Right = Passenger side. Reference to driver/passenger side is for left hand drive cars, so for RHD vehicles UK/Japan/Australia, etc. Please reverse the side indicated. What does the production month mean?
When the fitment information includes a production month this means the part will only fit some of the cars within a given model year, depending on what month the car was manufactured. Production for the "model year" usually begins in September of the previous calendar year, so if you have a 1995 model BMW it will have been produced anywhere between 9/94 - 8/95. Some cars begin their production earlier than September, such as the first year production for a new model. For example, if we say the part fits 04/95 - 99 it will fit those cars with a production date of April 1995 to 1999 model year cars. Or if we say the part fits 99 - 05/99 it will fit 1999 model year vehicles and up to and including those with a production date of 04/99.
Where do I find my car's production month? The production month for your vehicle can be found on a sticker located on your front driver side door jamb. See the photo below for illustration. Will this part fit my non-US market BMW?
