The VANOS on your BMW controls the variable cam timing based on oil pressure. If the filter in the VANOS system gets clogged, the oil pressure can vary and not let your engine perform the way it was intended. This preventative maintenance kit includes the VANOS filter, o-rings, and the sealing flange for the VANOS solenoid that commonly seeps oil.
Check out the step by step installation video at the bottom of this page. Change your filter easily and with the help of ECS Tuning to get your vehicle running as efficiently as it should. Video shows how to complete installation of stage one kit.
Located beneath the adjusters on the front of the engine, the plate filter can be user serviced. Though more difficult, the average person with some DIY know how should be able to replace it without issues. To replace included flange, please consult a service manual.
ECS recommends a filter change around 30k miles and torque of the sealing bolt 20ft lbs.
