Yes.. there is one... and I'm sorry I dont have it with me... its online... I'm not on my personal computer as I am deployed in Iraq... but I do have it saved on my own computer... any ways.. If I remember correctly the way I cam about it was to search google for the same thing you just asked.. just type in e36 timing chain tensioner. Just look around I know its there somewhere... I would for you but I'm on a slow computer with a time limit...

Good Luck,

Les

those are a serious pain in the ass. are you sure yours is bad? that's like a one in a million failure here. If your VANOS isn't working properly, that's most likely because the solenoid cut out. What exactly is your problem, and your level of technical ability?

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.
