BMW - Never Again Rack and pinion

1996 - 2003 (E39) - Bimmerforums - The Ultimate BMW Forum - forums.bimmerforums.com
Never again rack and pinion for sure took over two hours to seperate the old from the steering column and three hours later I have to go back at it in the morning because there is a quarter inch or a little more that wont seat. probably going to lower the subframe farther as I have seen suggested to ensure everything lines up.

Also broke a motor mount lifting the motor to do the rack and pinion. It has been a rough few days hopefully tomorrow is a new start.

Any tips on how to get this fully seated the car is a 98 528i with the m52.

motor is lifted as high as I can, sub frame is dropped a little and screw driver has been used to spread the jaws this work way better than other tries at first but now I am stuck again and at my wits end.
