    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Rebuilt my front calipers with new pistons and seals from Biggred, also changed the pads to brembo's as i found one of the redstuff pads had separated from its backing plate.

    V8 Tapping Noise

    It's not such a massive job it's just that there is lots to come off to get you where you need to be to address the issue. You wont need the chain just the guides gaskets and check valves and the cam tensioner shoes. If the vanos seals are worn out they will need to be replaced either by the Beisan method or what i did, you will need to see if you need to replace the camshaft distribution piece also.

    You can change the seals the biesan way or machine open the vanos and make a threaded cap for it. Check out this video Also the check valve in the head could be leaking oil back to the sump but that can only be addressed by removing the vanos and distribution piece.
