Parts Included With This Kit
Note: This tool is intended for use with the engine in the car. This procedure can also be done with the engine out of the car.
Note: All German Auto recommends using our direct fuel injector kit (AGA-DIF-KIT) to remove and install direct injectors.
Remove valve covers if servicing left and right sides. Only perform cam adjustment on one side at a time.
Turn engine over with 27mm socket in clockwise direction until mark on balancer is close to timing groove in front cover.
Note: when in correct position small flat on cams is facing up on intake and exhaust cams both banks.
Install AGA-11-8-570 facing balancer. Turn engine over slowly in a clockwise direction until pin just drops in timing groove. This sets the engine to 150° before cylinder number 1 firing TDC.
Install AGA-11-9-893-IN-N63 and install AGA-11-9-893-EX-N63 if both plates are perfectly align with cylinder head surface, then the cam timing is correct.
If adjustment is needed or cams need to removed, proceed with the following steps.
Install 12mm to 8mm adapter and hold down bar AGA-11-9-892 tighten firmly by hand.
Remove cam solenoids and timing cover, exposing timing chain tensioners.
Pull back timing pin. Turn engine very slightly counter clockwise to collapse hydraulic chain tensioners enough to push in locking pin. See pictures:
Pin will keep piston in retracted position for tensioner removal. Rotate engine clockwise slightly to push timing pin back in front cover timing groove.
Loosen E14 M10X1 cam adjuster bolts. Remove cam plate, hold down intake and exhaust plate. Remove 12mm to 8mm adapter.
Remover center chain guide. Remove bolt and remove cam adjusters intake and exhaust while supporting chain by hand. Note: adjuster timing position is not critical to cam or chain.
Loosen cam cap bolts and remove cams. Note: keep track of rocker arm location—they should not be interchanging.
To install cams:
Transfer bolts from stock chain tensioner to chain tensioning tool (AGA-11-9-900). Tighten T40 bolts to 13nm.
Tighten adjuster by hand to remove chain slag. Tighten with 10mm open end wrench until gauge tool (AGA-G060-N63) can just be inserted between 10mm hex and round end. Lube with copper anti-seize under bolt head.
With timing chain preload now correct under bolt head tighten E14 M10x1 cam adjuster bolts to 30nm and 90° clockwise on intake and exhaust.
Turn engine over by center bolt 720° or two turns
Install crank holding tool and pin
Reinstall intake and exhaust plate to ensure correct timing
Note: plates must align with cylinder head surface
install cam hold down to prevent cams from turning. Back off chain preload tool. Transfer bolts back to stock tensioner. Torque T40 bolts to 13nm and remove pin.
