  1. V8 Tapping Noise

    If any bits of chain guides are in there they are not likely to come out with the oil.
  2. V8 Tapping Noise

    A rattle like that at startup, will be most likely down to the vanos units not being full of oil due to them leaking down because of worn seals and check valves. I engineered open both of my vanos units and resealed them with new seals i had a threaded cap made for the vanos and had the vanos body threaded so it closes back up again. Drop your oil pan and check to see if you have any debris from your guides if so you really do need to strip it down and change them out. It's not a ridiculous job but there is lots to come off and go back on again.
  3. E39 Rear Wheel Bearings

    I've just done mine and i used this vid to help me i suspect that all the bolts were previously loosend and using a pneumatic hammer didn't help like it did in his video to push the shafts through the hub. i used a big two arm puller to get the shaft to move and the bearing came off with a slide hammer ok. Its certainly doable but if things are stuck you might wish you had sent it to the garage.
