Wanted: M50 Single Vanos Replacement Tools


Recommended Posts

Like the title says, looking to rent/borrow a set of timing tools for replacing the vanos unit on a M50tu, so the cam lock blocks, exhaust cam tool, chain lock pin, etc. If anyone has the vanos tools also (soft vise jaws, modified 18mm socket) that would also be desired. Willing to compensate with monies, parts or beverages of your choice.

Not to brag or anything, but I have all the cam tools and vanos seal stuff

Oh heck yeah. I’ll shoot ya a text when I’m getting closer to doing it, think I’m going to order the seal and rattle kit sometime this week. I bought a spare m50 vanos unit so the plan is to rebuild that unit and then toss it into my car when I’m doing the VCG. 

Any compensation/beverage preference?

Also have the cam tools!

If @m42b32 falls though, I’ll let you know! We currently live about 10min from each other haha so it’s nice and easy to trade parts and tools.
