Most likely a driveshaft joint stripped its splines,Beemer diffs are quite tough stuff normally  :y
I think you'd hear/feel that happening, Henry. Tigger said he lost power and didn't mention any nasty noises. It's more likely it's just popped out, I think.
But.....until the lazy bastard has a look and let's us know, it's only guesswork.
Yay!  :)

You forgot the smilie!  :y
A smiley might have made me look smug.  ;D

Not wanting to piss on the parade, but isn't the bit that's popped out connected to the drive shaft end by six bolts?

I suspect that the parts bill will include a new diff, two drive shafts, two hub flanges and a new swear jar... :-\

There's a decent BMW breakers over in Essex...

The spline May have popped out, like this chap does with his little hammer

Quite possibly... although a more pertinent question would be how/why it's popped out :-\

I'm thinking that there must be a circlip of some sort that holds it in and has come adrift.  :-\

There is a c-clip on the spline spigot stub that goes in to the diff. It is designed to retain the stub in a groove in the diff but is not designed for being pulled against with force. Baggy/worn suspension/worn rear subframe, that allows too much travel sideways is one of the causes. The c-clip alone will struggle to hold the stub in if sideways movement is present in the suspension. They even do a spacer that goes between the stub flange and the half shaft (6 bolt fixing that Al referred to) to try to minimise sideways movement but I believe this to be for the bimmer guys that run with high degree negative camber. Another theory is that as the spline/diff teeth wear they act like a vortex and spit the stub out.  :-\

Don't mention pulling anything hard. There are people on here who make rude comments about stuff like that.  ;D

As Columbo would say 'Just one more thing'.
The guy in the vid I posted didn't seem to remove any C clip before he podged the stub axle out.  :-\

Have you had the wheel bearing on that side replaced?

Wonder if the wrong bearing was fitted and has allowed the shaft to move :-\
