Don't know where in South Jersey you are, but a quick search for Axle shafts in NJ show that Hyway garage in Lumberton, A Micciche in Voorhees and Albion in Berlin have some 2000+ X5s you can scavenge. I used car-part.com to search the local yards.

OD: 85mm

ID: 41mm

Width: 45mm



Which means that the hub and the carrier must be different.... so they'll all need to be replaced - or located at a wrecker.


I was going with the part number spec for the hub which didn't have a different one for pre 3/2000.

The plan was to replace the carrier and bearing just need to know if the hub is different which if ID bearing is different than hub is different.

I have to change a CV boot soon. I may know the answer to spline size on the post 3/2000 soon.

Not correct, the inner race of bearing for both styles is a diameter of 45mm as confirmed by parts distributor this morning. The only difference is overall width and depth.
So the newer style carrier must be deeper, with a larger opening on the inner side of carrier to accept the larger CV end.

So the only real question is can you replace just the outer CV or full CV axle. Also: it appears the abs sensor is different so that as well.

Can the parts distributor confirm the abs bump count? I can't imagine it would be different. It would greatly complicate things to have a different abs ring count.

I don’t believe they physically have the smaller bearing in stock. I’m just going to take a “leap of faith” in this case and follow a recoding path of necessary. But realoem is listing everything for the exchange and it seems this is a necessary exchange, I would presume they are the same.

My digital Vernier calliper says 49mm ID - I guess I'll find out when/if I use this bearing!

So 49mm is the inner diameter of the bearing meaning hub shaft is the same? This is why I’m being so cautious there’s no definitive answer until I see. I’m getting a 12/00 setup from salvage yard with cv ends so I’ll see what I have to work with

Yep, on the newer setup the race inner dimension is 49mm, so the stub shaft on the hub (pressed into the bearing) must also be 49mm (slightly less actually but you get the idea...).

12/00 will be the new model. Wife has 07/00 and it's the same as mine 05/01. Hers was the last month with under hood OBD 20-pin port. I call her car a 2000 1/2 model year.

You are getting a complete knukle with hub and abs?
