I am rebuilding a /6 front wheel and need to replace the "tophat" spacers. The old ones have wear grooves from the seals and heavy pitting from corrosion.
The PN I came up with is 36311230322. I got it from here: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...54&hg=36&fg=05
The Tophat Spacer is item #5 in the diagram. BMW calls it a "Compression Ring"
When the parts arrived, I thought there was some mistake. The new ones don't have the wide "hat brim" ...as seen in the photos. Both the old and new are 13mm long.
Does anyone know whether the old type "wide brim" tophat spacer is still available? ...under another PN? ...or is the new one meant to supercede and replace the old style (end of story)?
