Active Autowerke Differential Support Bracket - Bmw E36 1992-1998


No matter how well-engineered, every system has an Achilles Heel – and in the BMW E36 driveline it’s the single, main mounting bolt that holds the differential in place. Until it doesn’t, that is.

This vulnerable diff bolt can fail very easily under any extreme driving condition. If you’re lucky, the bent or broken bolt is able to be extracted. If you’re not, the entire diff needs to be removed in order to extract the broken bolt. The Active Autowerke DSB kit comes with everything to make this installation complete; a new Diff bolt is also included as part of the package. Our DSB can easily be installed by a qualified tech in under an hour and will eliminate this BMW Achilles Heel problem forever.
