Throw Out Bearing - E30 M3, E36 M3, E34 M5, MZ3
Resolve TOB noises and restore proper clutch operation. OEM replacement for BMW part #21512226729.
A worn throw-out bearing on the E30 M3, E36 M3, E34 M5, MZ3 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 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 TOB is the one used in our Lightweight Sprung-Hub Clutch & Flywheel kit.
