Default E46 top mounts

Just rebuilt my front legs



Now it seems difficult to turn the top mounts, are they usually easy to spin?

Thanks.

Very nice!

The bearing should spin freely, maybe the rubber pad isn't sat quite right. It is a while since I had mine apart, so cant remember how it goes together.

I assume you have put new bearings in? Like mentioned they should spin reasonably freely. Could it be that you have over tightened the top bolt perhaps?
