Replaced the guibo today

and man I'm impressed with the undercarriage. I love the plastic and aluminum shielding....keeps the unibody looking like new under there. I never thought it would be so easy to do. Between the TIS and Keif's photos it was a 2.5 hour breeze...although I did cheat and use my trans jack to lower the exhaust and hold it up with ratcheting straps to save time. Test drove the car and wow what a difference....guess that part isn't designed to last more then 50k or so. Next week will be the coolant hose and sensor.

Good job... Nice ZX14....Although my next bike will be a Busa. Did you have downshift problem with jerking from 2-1?...is that why you replaced the guibo?

Thanks. No down-shift issue really, just a clunking letting off the accelerator and going into gear sometimes. The old guibo had a ton of visible slop in it, you could move the driveshaft back and forth and visibly see it. Not sure why the dealer charges so much for this...I'd do it all day long for $400 plus the guibo.

Is that your home garage with a lift? I love something like that!

+1!!!!! Did you do the trans adaptation reset thing as well? Mine was like butter after guibo, fluid, and the trans adaptation reset.

Yep I did the adaption as well, she used to shift waaaay early. I didn't change the trans fluid but had been contemplating it, I used to do it every 15k or so on my Dodge, and she still has her original trans at 194k.

If it shifts well now, I vote not to mess with a good thing. Just my $0.02.

Not to jack the thread (though I am about to do my guibo and just did a trans fluid change)

Is your 2 post Asymmetric? Could you do me a favor and let me know where the posts end up on your 7? maybe a measurement from the front to the post and the back to the post.

I'm about to install a Rotary 10K Asymmetric in my garage and want to get it close to right on the money.

Asymmetric - the car sits about dead center of the lift...I may have it up in the air again this weekend for the lower coolant hose so I'll try to remember to measure then.

seb - sorry I already threw out the bag with the part number on it...

OK, thanks, that would be greatly appreciated. I'm surprised you said dead center - was expecting something towards the front of the front door (A pillar area) and not between the doors (the B pillar). Nice garage by the way. What bike do you have?

Got mine replaced this week (2005, 66k miles). Ran about $750, not covered by CPO warr. (ouch). But, made a nice difference.

Can anyone confirm that the guibo partnumber here is for the 750s as well. The guibo for a 750 is showing up on realoem as a different part number. See below

745 Guibo

750 Guibo

My suggestion would be to ask the guys at getbmwparts.com to confirm using your vin.

By the way, I have not replaced my guibo yet... Still running well after resetting the trans tables to zeros to relearn after replacing the trans fluid and filter... Knock on wood, it is running well.

Sorry guys if I'm supposed to post here and not meaning to highjak this thread. I alo posted a few days ago at sell/buy threads but got no responces even though price is cheap, well at least i think it cheap because i paid much more. This is how my post looks there; BMW e65/66 Driveshaft Flex Disc universal joint OEM guibo coupler
Hi, selling this OEM part because traded in my car and no longer need it. I paid $150.00 plus shipping cost, but willing to sell it for $110 including shipping cost. New Yorkers welcome for in person transaction.

As a bonus i will include also set of two cabin charcoal filters, its a good brand, sorry its in the box in my car in parking lot can't go to see a brand. Sorry again guys.

This is my Guibo after 140,000km.

When your replacing it you may find it easier the utilise the emergency transmission release under the dash to place the trans in neutral. This enables rotation of the shaft for easier access and removal.

I'm about to get this done soon, and I'm going to replace the center mount. You're already there, might as well. Just my two cents.
