Throw Out Bearing - E21 323i, E30 323i, E28 533i
Resolve TOB noises and restore proper clutch operation. OEM replacement for BMW part #21511204525.
A worn throw-out bearing on the E21 320/6 & 323i, E30 323i, E28 533i 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 an OEM throw-out bearing manufactured by LuK - 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 TOB is also used when installing a E30 325i clutch & flywheel on a 318i M42 engine.
