The VANOS unit on your BMW uses oil pressure to actuate the camshaft adjustment units. A restricted or clogged filter can lead to improper operation and eventual failure of the VANOS system.
This kit contains Genuine BMW parts necessary to replace the filter/strainer, which is located on the S54 VANOS pressure limiting valve. We recommend replacing this filter every 25,000-30,000 miles. This is a simple job, and requires only a 22mm socket and a couple of standard hand tools.Kit Contents:
- 1x Genuine BMW VANOS Filter Cartridge
- 1x Genuine BMW O-ring (14x3mm)
- 1x Genuine BMW O-ring (10.82x1.78mm)
