Steering wheel knocking, where to find gelzer 1318dl

Has anyone repaired steering wheel knocking when you turn left/right by replacing the shims in the steering rack?

I found this video, it's it russian, but maybe some AI can translate it these days 🤣

In any case, I haven't come across thus repair on any other bmw channels or forums

And I can't seem to find this part anywhere, gelzet 1318dl

So apparently these plastic shims wear out and cause loseness, which makes the steering knock/clunk.

This video shows what he does, seems like a pretty simply job. Any thoughts/experiences??

Andrew these parts won't be on realoem.
Internal parts don't show up on realoem, such as internal bearings/seals for alternators, starters, transfer cases, differentials etc.
Manufacturers build these parts for bmw, but bmw doesn't sell the internal components, such as that annoying single vanos bolt on E39 that tightens until clockwise and is so easy to strip.

Had the same knocking for quite a while. Tried lubing the joint, tightening it, etc. but finally broke down and bought a new double joint (32306758076), which fixed it.

Ahhh I guess won't hurt to replace it as well...
These are not cheap, about $300. Oh well, gotta get it done, thanks for the advice!

You could try backing the bolts holding the lower to the upper columns out (at the u joint), checking the fit of the joint, where the two attach, etc., and then re-torquing the bolts. There are a few threads on the board about this working for others. My u joint was just worn out, so it didn’t work for me, but hopefully you’ll be luckier.
