Open rear differential from a 1999 BMW 540i with 127,791 miles. This differential has a 2.81 gear ratio. This was removed from a running and driving vehicle and is in good used condition. There is no damage to the case or axle flanges other then normal corrosion. When drained, the fluid was clean, clear and free of any heavy metallic or foreign debris. The rear cover was removed for inspection and will need to be resealed prior to use. The ring, pinion and spider gears are all in good condition with no damages outside of normal wear. Both half-shaft flanges are attached and included. Images are of the actual part you will receive.
This will need to be resealed and refilled with the proper lubricants prior to use.
