E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

Where to source this part?

Hello,

I am posting here because feel the part I am looking for may have come from an E30 era BMW.

My '91 M3 (stock motor) has the R134 AC system. When it was changed over, the AC compressor supporting bracket and adjusting bar were 'upgraded', using an unknown kit.

The adjusting bracket broke - thankfully we were able to weld it back together. Now I am on the hunt for a replacement... I can't find this part on realoem (I searched all the E30 engines). Any ideas?

Mike W. on myE28.com has the answer. It's the adjusting bar from an E28 535i. I am going to order it and see if the dimensions are the same.

I thought I had it for you, Mark. I'd just reworked the PS on an E24 and that bar looked similar, but then I realized the "gear teeth" are pointed the opposite direction (inward instead of out) from yours!

I hope it works out for you.

Ken, thank you - I appreciate the thought
