Swirl Flap Removal M47D2o02 e60 520d

Recommended Posts

I'm gonna have a go at removing these myself on my 2005 e60 520d. I've been reading some horror stories about what can happen when they go and I can't take the risk. Does anyone know what size of blanking plates ill need and has anyone any tips for me. Also if anyone has useful links for a "how to " guide it would be appreciated.

Youll need 4 blanks (4 cylinders)

i did some research and apparently the 520's are 22mm but as said in a previous post you can order both sizes and then send back the ones you dont use.
