This chick at work has a 328Ci and the check engine light was coming on. I used my Peake reader for her and it came up a code #12 (Camshaft sensor, exhaust cam). She said it doesn't come on that often, but I was wondering if that is something easy to replace and if so the location of it.

I'm good with VW's but not much experience in BMW's.

Any help would be appreciated to help her avoid a raping at the dealership.

these components due fail i think it is on the right front of cylinder head. I have a 323i but i think it should be in the same area. Mine is in the front part of engine its looking down and to the left of front part of engine an electrical component attatched to the engine. I think they cost 50dollars and up i think it is fairly easy to get to. maybe someone else knows better

Yeah, it's simple. It's located on the exhaust side of the cylinder head, in the front. It's held in by a 5mm allen bolt, or maybe it's a 6mm.........
