Pulling it apart should be quite easy as it will probably only have sealer between the two sections, make sure you have removed every bolt as there is one sneaky one that doesn't look like it has anything to do with it coming apart!

See here for a full view of all the parts.

Once you have all the bolts out it just a case of tapping it lose and then tapping it off the main shaft.

Getting it on is more of a bugger as you have to line up the 3 selector shafts perfectly before it then just pops on. Again no hitting required if its all located properly.

Just take you time and don't be tempted to hit it with the big adjusting tool too hard!!

There is a detent ball that is a PITA to get correct.  When I took the front off an 1800 box to make an adapter for a 265 there was a spring ball. I have no idea how I would of got that back into place.

Got the part numbers on my link and although its BMW its the same box so 99% parts should be the same and probably easier to get through BMW.
