The reactions π-3He --> nnp and π-3He --> nd have been measured in a kinematically complete experiment with stopped pions. The results show strong preference for collinear events. About three quarters of all absorption processes occur as quasi-free absorption on np- or pp-pairs with a ratio of R = 10.1 +/- 1.5. The remaining quarter shows energy sharing among all three nucleons and is located in the final-state interaction regions. Branching ratios for all observed final states are given.
