Need this to remove rustling noise.
Work is in progres, let you guys know when finished.
Las week I went to dealer an thei told me that almost all E36 has this problem,
Thei told me that you need to update your VANOS,
All E36 manufacturing period 03.1990 to 06.1995 need this update.

This was a common fault you need special tool to lock the cams, pre tension the chain, lock the flywheel etc and a good set of torque sockets
