Torx swivels arrived (pricey bits) and I was able to pull the OFH off and wow, that's what 15 years and 182,xxx looks like!



I think/hope that is where the leak was from. Fresh oil can be seen here underneath the intake manifold but was visibly coming down the back of the housing:



The VCG was supposedly done last October by PO, so going with the presumption that is from before he changed it, with a fresh layer on top from the OFHG. Here is the front end which is CRAZY gunked up. I cleaned around the VANOS when I pulled them out, but the rest is pretty much on for life unless I do some sort of power wash thing:



I need to button everything up, refill and check for leaks, but I think I'm about done! There's a 50% chance I confused the VANOS solenoid wiring and accidentally swapped... Probably should have marked that better...

Fingers crossed!

Replaced my driver L Logic 7 midrange. My right one had the same failure mode where it would get crackly and distorted. $20 and 30 minute fix.

If you still have your old one, theres a good chance it just needs to be reglued. I've done almost all of mine now. OEM glue got too brittle so took all of it off with a toothpick, some rubbing alcohol, and q tips and reglued it using contact cement for speakers. Put a nice sized bead all the way around to the line where the old glue was, put a thing of canned food ontop and let it sit for awhile. Been working for the last couple years so far. Though I think one of the rear ones is starting to fail.. Crackles even though theres no signs of the adhesion breaking
