Driveshaft help...

This is my 3rd time dropping the driveshaft (replaced center bearing twice already), this time I'm using a remanufactured driveshaft.

I have a question about bolt placement connecting the guibo to tranny....the guibo has directional arrows showing which way the bolts should face. Problem is that every bolt rotates (ex- facing tranny, then facing rear, etc...), but doesn't look like it's possible doing this as there's no way I can get a bolt in there facing the rear.

So do all the bolts face the front of the car? Any help is appreciated.

Forgot to add I have a 90' 325i.

3 of the bolts are to face away from the front of the engine

the other three are to face towards the engine...just make sure you stagger them...good luck...cliff
