BMW 3 Series Type 188 Rear Differential OEM Bearing & Seal Rebuild Kit (8 Bolt)
To tell if your differential is a Type 188 please count the number of bolts holding the rear cover to the diff housing, there should be 8 bolts.
Alternatively you can use the RealOEM website and enter your vehicle details. Click on the axle icon and then click on the final drive gasket set icon. Number 1 will either be Type 168 or Type 188.
If your rear cover takes 7 bolts you have a Type 168 differential fitted to your vehicle and these parts will not fit.
