    I have the 1999 service manual but it does not show my axle code. I have a 99 V6 and the sticker on the door says "X5" in the axle code, but the service manual does not show such a code.

    Did any of the V6 cars come with the T-lock? When I had my tires rotated last time I saw them move the left side tire and the right side rotated also. In most cars this means it has a LSD, is this how a t-lock works also?

    You have a 3.27:1 open rearend (no traction-lok).

    Thanks, but why does it not show in the vehicle code?

    You got me on that one!


    Look on the rearend and there will be a tag with a bunch of numbers on it. Most of them are unimportant (date code, part no., etc.) but you will see a "3.27" on the tag. If that's the case then you have what I posted up above. If you have a traction-lok and 3.27 gears then it will say "3L27". ;)

    I've got the answer.......

    X5 — 3.27 conventional.

    Right out of the Service Manual CD for 2000

    Maybe a late 99 manufacture date?

    OK, well at least it matches something. The manufacture date is 6/99.

    Remember, did your tires spin the same way or not? I know my 99 did not. I just got done getting a possi with 373's. I can check for you though.

    I don't know which way they rotated, but I'd bet it does not have t-lock. I doubt the lady who owned it before me added it :)

    FYI- if one rear tire spins one way and the other spins counter to that, you don't have a t lok (aka possi) so find out soon.
