E36 rear bump stop replacement

Recommended Posts

So, a bit of squeaking suspension alerted me to a worn bump-stop. Just wondering what the process is to replace these is? Currently I'm assuming it's:

  • Jack up the car
  • Find the top of the strut mount (cabby so not much room in the boot)
  • Unbolt it
  • Replace the bump stop
  • Bolt it back in
  • Fix the interior of the boot
  • Put the car down

Or, should I unbolt it first then jack up the car? Hmm. SO MANY OPTIONS.

Exactly as you have outlined.

Do both sides at the same time and if you don't have the Z3 reinforcements then add those too (can be done later with the car on the ground).

Cab may already have them? Check first.
