Flywheel locking pin comes with camshaft lock kit, you need that and preferably a torque wrench that reads angle, if you watch a DIY there is plenty of information about procedure and tools required.

So when I replace the ledges is it gonna fix my 003100 code? Isn't that a limp mode code or no? And I still find it a little weird that ever since I replaced the solenoids limp mode only comes on like once a day instead of everytime I drive it.

The 3100 limp mode code is a result of the bad cam ledges reducing the vanos adjusting unit oil pressure, if you replace the ledges and the seals the limp mode code will be gone. Unless you have another problem, in which case I have no idea what it could be, but like I told you I'm pretty positive that's ur issue

Do you have any pictures of those shavings in the oil? The cam ledges usually look like small silver shavings, about 1-1.5mm in size.

I'd also do the valve stem seals while you're in there.

Once you have the cam trays off it only adds an extra 3 hours and the tools can be had for about 80.

I followed a few different youtube videos.




The budget bimmers one is great but it's worth watching both a couple of times.

Also worth creating a physical bolt torque spec checlist for each bolt and getting a paint marker. I like having a paper copy because doing anything with a phone with oily gloves is impossible.

For the ease and cost honestly i'd order all new lifters and check all of them when doing this job. Don't need 'em, return 'em.

After 2 hours of trying I have managed to find it but it was so hard to find because it was missing the plastic piece that im supposed to feel for. Now on to removing the ledges. But one more thing, do I NEED a torque wrench that reads angle because I don't have one.

No you don't necessarily need one. You can do the angle in your head like if it's a 90 degree angle it's easy to do. But if it's an awkward angle a proper torque wrench with angle or you can buy a torque angle gauge that attaches to your drive/socket.

Do not do the angle in your head, the last thing you want is a bolt coming loose because you didn't torque it correctly. Find a friend with one, or use a cheap angle tool, they are $15 at any auto store.
