BMW E46 Valve Cover Gasket Replacement
Video tutorial on how to replace your BMW E46 3.0 litre in line 6 cylinder engine's valve cover gasket. Process is fairly straight forward but does require a little bit of know-how and prep work and METICULOUS care in disassembly. When your valve cover gasket begins to show signs of "sweating" or leaks then its time to replace the gaskets. Even if your car has very low miles like mine does the age of the rubber seals gradually deteriorates to the point where you just need to put new parts in.

Need additional tech help? Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- In this two part video series Otto will show you how to replace the valve cover gasket on the M50, M52, M52TU, M56, M54, S50, S52 and S54 6-cylinder BMW engines. These engines have been used in various 3, 5, X and Z models from the early '90s through the mid '00s. Note that while these procedures are shown on an E53 X5 (00-06) BMW with the M54 3.0 engine, they can also be applied to the E36, E46, E34, E39, E60, E85 and E86 3, 5, X and Z 6-cylinder models. Some will look slightly different or have slightly different hardware but, the basic points and procedures are the same. --- Part 1 - Valve cover removal steps: In this video we will remove the valve cover on a BMW 2002 3.0i X5. Part-2 covers the installation. For a list of the parts and tools used, see the accompanying BLOG post at: http://blog.bavauto.com/go/VCG 1) Some models require that the cowl HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) air inlet tray be removed in order to allow full access to the engine valve cover. This E53 X5 does not require removal of the cowl tray. 2) Remove the engine trim cover. Pry out the two round trim plugs on the trim cover. Remove the two 10mm nuts or bolts. Lift the plastic trim cover off and set aside. NOTE: This earlier "coil on plug" model has the coils secured into place via studs and nuts. On these models, remove the two 10mm securing nuts and pry the metal harness clamp upward to release the harness plug. The coil can then be pulled up and removed. Later M54 engine used the later "pencil style" coils. These coils do not have any bolts or nuts securing them in place. They can just be pulled up and out. See the "pencil coil" replacement video at: http://blog.bavauto.com/go/coils2/ 3) Release the securing clips and pull the harness plugs from the ignition coils. 4) Remove the nuts or bolts securing the coil frames to the valve cover and pull the coils up and out. See note above if you have the "pencil coils" that do not have nut or bolt securing hardware. 5) Unclip the coil plug harness assembly and set aside. Unclip the oxygen sensor harnesses and set aside. 6) Remove the valve cover securing nuts. Loosen and remove in an expanding spiral pattern, starting in the middle of the valve cover. 7) Gently remove the valve cover. Be very careful if applying any prying. this can easily crack the plastic valve covers. 8) Clean the cylinder head gasket mating surfaces with brake parts cleaner and a clean cloth. Now, click on to Part-2 and continue with the installation of the new valve cover gaskets and replacement of the valve cover assembly. --- All products noted in this video can be purchased in our online store, http://www.bavauto.com/, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
