BMW E39 530D Rear Differential Fluid Replacement and nm

Recommended Posts

TIS says a 530d would have the 220K differential and the data for that is:

BMW OSP synthetic differential oil. Two alternatives I am familiar with: CASTROL SAF-XO 75W-90 or Land Rover part # LRN 7591 

TIS lists too many others  to list. 

fill quantity 1.4 litres

torque for drain & fill plugs: with seal ring 65 Nm, with O-ring 60 Nm.


Other E39 I6 engines use the 188K differential. Data all the same except fill volume of 1.0 litres.
