In case you're hearing Vanos rattles at a certain rpm, most usually 1800 - 2200 rpm, you're best off doing the Vanos rattle fix.
The kit works simply by removing axial play from the Vanos piston bearing. This is best installed at the same time as Vanos seals, at least in higher mileage cars.The kit will fit the following double Vanos cars:
BMW 6-cyl engines: M52TU, M54, M56, 1998-20063-series E46 98-055-series E39 99-035-series E60 & E61 02-057-series E38 98-017-series E65 & E66 02-05Z3 E36 98-02Z4 E85 02-05X3 E83 03-06X5 E53 00-06
Our sales will provide you with instructions, and all other parts you might be needing, like the Vanos housing gasket and valve cover gasket which you should at least replace at the same time.
An other typical fault in BMW M52/M54 engines is the intake manifold DISA. We also carry the Vaico BMW OE DISA valves
