Wow - You have a great site put together! I'm one of probably less than 100 people in the world running this m62 on a BMW, so the BMW guys don't know anything about my problems. Thanks to everyone for helping me figure this out.
If I can source a rotor pack from another m62, I'd like to try swapping it out myself. From the research I've done, it seems semi-straight forward....is this right?
1. seperate the nose drive from the rotors/housings.
2. slide the rotor pack out of the housing
3. repack the needle bearing with special lube
4. insert new rotor pack
5. install nose drive, bolt everything back together.
Am I missing anything here? Do I need any special tools to disassemble and reassemble the SC far enough to replace the rotor pack? I understand that I need the rotors pre-installed into the intermediate plate (I don't know what this plate is, but it sounds like it'* a mess to press the rotors into it, correct). HighSpeedLabs sells the rotors installed on the plate, I'll see what they can do for me.
