Clock Spring/ Slip Ring Compatibility
Good Morning all.

my 2003 E46 318i Tourings, clock spring/Slip Ring has seen its end.
i opened it up and repaired it but as far as i go the ribbon cables shows more signs of cracks and tears, so i have called it spent.

i can how ever get my hands on a secondhand one in working condition, from a 2002/2001 model.

however the model numbers differ

my units model number is 61.31-8 377 488.9
other unit model number is 61-31.-8 376 445.9

the units look identical, with all the buttons and switches in the correct places.

how can i confirm that this will be an interchangeable part between the donor car and mine ?

thanks in advance.

It will fit
