Well i have just done my diff bolts on my TME and 3 of them where in the bottom of the casing and the last one was still in there until i turned the head of the bolt when it snapped off in my hand. I reckon i was a boost or 2 away from my diff exploding.

Big thanks to HH6 for all the info and to [email protected] for the bits and being on the end of the phone when I needed it

Procedure is fairly straight forward although it would have helped if I had 2 people working on it instead of just me.

Remove exhaust front pipe

Drain gearbox and transfer box oil

Pop out both driveshafts (easier to do if you undo the hubs from the suspension strut)

Screw a 8mm nut into the hole on the output shaft on the transfer box side and then use a slide hammer to pop the shaft out.

Undo all the transfer box mounting bolts (including those on the top of the box that you can't see from underneath )

Slowly edge the transfer box away from the g/box
It will come out so far and then seem not to move..... The best option at this point is to insert a pry bar (or similar) into the hole in the middle of the transfer box and gently tap the centre shaft towards the g/box.

The transfer box will then come free and can be lowered to the floor. As it comes free and you lower it down, remove the propshaft from the rear of the t/box. BE careful. When the transfer box is free it is quite heavy for one person to hold

Once out, you can then remove the bolts holding the 2 halves of the box together and separate the halves by levering them gently with a screwdriver.

Then remove the diff assembly and remove the 14mm bolts holding the front diff inside. As you remove these, the ring gear will separate from the assembly and can be removed.

Inside you will find your front diff and probably a few bolt heads (I had 2 sheared off and 2 still in place)

Remove any bolts still in place and the diff will separate into 2 halves. Be careful that you don't tip up one half and have all the cogs fall onto the floor (not that I'd do anything like that of course )

Replace the bolts with new ones (with a bit of Loctite) and then put everything back together again in the right order and refill the fluids. It's a lot easier to raise the transfer box with 2 people and the assistance of a trolley jack (thank you Mrs RSX for the help )

Pretty simple really. No more loud clinking noises when turning and car feels a lot sharper on turn in.

Andy
An old post but great help about to go and start on this

I find its easier to pull the ns centre shaft and you can knock out the one in the transfer on the bench once the box is out. Another thing I've never found is torque settings for the countersunk bolts that break, I used loctite and did them to 30nm. The other figures you need are Casing/cover 23nm, Crown wheel 132nm.

Make sure to take the cogs out of the diff unit and clean it all thoroughly as I found a fair bit of swarf when I did mine. Just keep them in order and orientation, may be an idea to mark the ends with permanent marker. Also keep your eyes peeled for engraving/notches in the parts of the diff unit and the casing it fits into to ensure correct fit/alignment

ok i am in process of doing this job, drive shafts out, gearbox and transfer fluid drained, exhaust downpipe removed, loosend all transfer box bolts to gearbox, now got stuck no ****ing slidder hammer, do you think it would be possible to use a long M8 bolt a descent size socket and try to pull the n's side shaft out? would this work??

also anyone got any more pic's of this for an e6?

I have removed mine in the past with a large flat screwdriver, or small prybar, in the gap were the ring clip is on the shaft, levered it against something to pop it out, once the ring clip inside has moved several mm, it will just pull out, then pop a small bar in the hole where the shaft was and give the other 1 a firm tap to pop that 1 out

I more thing to watch when rebuilding is that the small O ring that goes between the transfer box and gearbox is in place, and stays there

You don't need to take the transfer box off, just take the side cover off and remove the 'bell' and Crownwheel. Much quicker and easier.
