In Reply to: Replacing the Centre Bearing posted by alex lynch on April 06, 2001 at 18:37:27:
The E32 uses a two-piece driveshaft which can be separated and the centre bearing replaced. However, if your driveshaft has more than 100k miles, the u-joints will also be on their last legs so I would recommend replacing the whole driveshaft with a new unit. The driveshaft has to be removed anyway to replace the centre bearing.

Isn't the center bearing part of the drive shaft? If that is the case, I thought the drive shaft was one self contained unit. Do I then have to replace the drive shaft? Hope not. Thanks.
It could be a number of things, I believe a friend of mine changed the rubber center bearing of his driveshaft and that made the difference.
When I accelerate and am between 1500-2000 rpm, I feel a shudder / slow vibration from the center of the car, I think. My first guess would be something related to the driveshaft. The shudder only occurs in the 1500-2000 rpm range and only at acceleration. Any ideas? Thanks.
