Rod Bearing Service Kit - BMW S54 2001-2003 M3
We have put together a rod bearing service package based on our experience of what works in our shop. This kit includes an ACL rod bearing that is tried and true. Bearing material is traditional lead and copper so oil analysis can be used to track future rod bearing wear. We've included an oil pan gasket, 7 liters of 10w-60 oil, and an oil filter kit to get this job done right. There are so many choices out there when it comes to what parts to use when doing your own rod bearing service and we wanted to take some of the guess work out of it. We suggest this package to each and every customer that comes to our shop for rod bearing service and most of our customers trust our expertise. We've had great success with this package over the last few years.
Our suggestion is to replace rod bearings approximately every 70k miles.
The early BMW S54 engines produced from 2001 to 2003 utilized an M11 12 point head rod bolt. These rod bolts are to be reused during this service as they are not torque to yield bolts like the M10 bolts found in the later year S54 engines.
