M5 in need of repair:(



Last Thursday I pulled into the parking lot at work and the car was running rough and check engine light came on.
Did some reading and pulled the error codes and looks like it’s the camshaft position sensor…hopefully. Parts are on order and plan is that I will replace it myself. If this does not fix the problem could be the VANOS

What exactly needed to be fixed on your vanos? Re-solder, dead solenoid or something bigger?

After waiting 1.5 weeks I finally received the cps sensors (ordered them from the states). Hoping to get them in this weekend.

Passenger side intake and exhaust cps done.
Driver side is proving to be more difficult. Got the bolt out of the exhaust cps and that is where I stopped. Will try and continue tonight.
