Ivan,

Use the old nut that you took off or a new one without the self locking feature. Tighten to spec and remove the nut.

This should pull the tapered shaft enough into the bore to allow you to tighten the self locking nut.

Good luck.

Paul



Changed the thrust arm on my 535i(upper control arm) and had difficulty keeping ball joint from spinning while tightening self-locking nut. Any advice??
