A worn throw-out bearing on the E30, E36, E46, E28, E34, E39, E24, and Z3 causes a grinding or rattle sound when the clutch pedal is pressed. Pushing the clutch pedal in will trigger the sound but it is quiet with the clutch disengaged. It's unusual that a throw-out bearing (TOB) needs replacement without doing a whole clutch but if the bearing is making noise and the clutch has plenty of life, this OEM throw-out bearing is an inexpensive and easy solution.

This is the latest throw-out bearing design and replaces previous part numbers including 21511223366, 21511223168, and 21511208423. These numbers have all been superseded to this number, so if you have any of these numbers, this is the throw-out bearing you'll need. 

This is an OEM throw-out bearing manufactured by Sachs - one of the original suppliers to BMW for this part, as well as many other clutch components. As the OEM it meets all of BMW's original design, fitment, and performance requirements and is TUV approved. OEM parts are the best alternative to more expensive Original BMW parts because they are virtually identical without the inflated price tag. This part has a two year warranty.

This is also the TOB included in our Sachs and custom Clutch Masters clutch kits. If you are piecing together a performance disc and sport pressure plate, make sure you also get one of these throw out bearings.
