Hi, i just did a quick write up on doing the cam ledge replacement since there is zero info online. Once your in there its pretty straight forward and i want to give a special thanks to http://www.bimmertoolrental.com for their help and guidance and tool. If youre unfortunate enough to have this issue this diy should help you.

Full description coming soon

Put the car on TDC the way i learned was taking sparkplug 1 off put a long screw driver and turn the crank on neutral until the screw driver is at its highest point. Install the tdc pin on the drivers side of the block (remove plastic plug)

To make sure you're on TDC make sure that the last rear lifters are not compressed by the cam lobes ( check the drawing from a couple pics below)

Very nice. I think this is my problem. Changed both intake and exhaust solenoid, cam sensor,de-carbons and car is still giving me a half check engine light and 2A87 and 3100 code. I might have to go ahead and do this on my own. What kinda of codes were you getting and what made you think this is your problems? Cause I dont want to open everything up and found it wasnt my problems cause those code. And anyone know how much would a indy charge for a job like this?
