In Reply to: How do you test a guibo? posted by Joe on August 29, 2001 at 06:53:30:


Drove a '90 535i with 109k miles. Under hard acceleration, there was a surging sensation in 1st and a little less in 2nd that WASN'T the engine. My '70 Camaro does the same thing becasue the ring and pinion are worn and a little loose. I've driven 6 5spd BMW's and none of the others did this.

My hope is it's the guibo (rubber donut?) I hear BMW's have, but have never seen. If I put the car up, can I crawl under and move the draft shaft around and see if the guibo is going bad?
