BMW VANOS Units & Parts for BMW 5 Series E39 (1996-2003)

Clear BMW chassis
The BMW VANOS system (variable Nockenwellensteuerung - variable camshaft timing) was introduced in the early 1990s as a way of altering timing based on RPM and engine load to improve torque delivery, fuel economy, and engine smoothness. The first systems were single-VANOS and operated the intake cam only. Beginning in 1999, double-VANOS was introduced that did both intake and exhaust banks (on both inline-6 and V8 engines).

By 150,000 miles the original VANOS actuator solenoids, seals, and o-rings are usually due for a complete replacement. Some individual pieces may have been replaced already. Signs of a dying unit are loud marble-like rattles from the front of the engine, loss of power and mid-range torque, poor fuel economy, and fault codes for misfires and VANOS-related sensors. VANOS sensors, solenoids, and some other parts are available separately. VANOS units can be rebuilt by sourcing the seals and o-rings on their own but that process still requires expert mechanical knowledge and special tools. We prefer to offer complete, rebuilt VANOS units to make the replacement as seamless and trouble-free as possible for you.

Note: all VANOS systems require special tools for correct repair and replacement. These tools are BMW specific. If you do not possess these tools we strongly advise you to bring the parts to a qualified and experienced BMW technician who does.

The VANOS solenoid switch in your BMW is a common failure point, and can cause loss of power and poor running conditions. This kit includes a new solenoid, a new control piston, and new sealing ring.

On the M62TU engine the VAN0S solenoids on both banks are buried behind the timing covers. This makes it impossible to use a wrench on them. They're also an extra-large 32mm hex size which most people won't have in their toolbox. This socket is the factory BMW tool for removing the solenoids in the M62TU. It's a thin wall for easy access in the timing cover and a 1/2" drive.

This oil pipe hose runs from the VAN0S adjusting unit to the oil filter housing. At some point the rubber line shrinks or cracks and oil can weep out of the swedge fittings. The fittings at the banjo bolts can also leak so replacing the seals for each banjo fitting is strongly recommended.

This is the solenoid switch that activates the VAN0S system on 1993-1995 325i, 525i, and US M3 models (single VAN0S, OBD-I). Without this switch activating (and de-activating) the VAN0S you will experience poor performance and torque output, worse fuel economy, fault codes for VAN0S operation and misfires. Thankfully, this part is relatively easy to replace and they generally last a long time. This is the Genuine BMW solenoid, not an overseas knockoff, so the quality is first-rate. This is the solenoid used on M50 and S50US engines (pre-OBD-II).

If you are looking to install the VANOS solenoid, you should also order the o-ring from the options below. Also check for leaks from the VAN0S oil line and seals. Now is a good time to access and replace it if it's leaking.

The 1999 - 2003 US and Euro E39 M5 (S62) uses a dual VAN0S for each bank of cylinders making it a fairly complex system. While the VAN0S units themselves are quite reliable and should last the life of the car in most cases, the solenoids can cause various problems which can be mistaken for a VAN0S failure. We offer a Genuine BMW fully rebuilt VAN0S with brand new factory Solenoids.

The BMW VANOS system is integral to the performance of your engine. VAN0S is a variable camshaft timing system that uses oil pressure to move camshaft position depending on engine load and demands. VAN0S is always functioning - retarding or advancing the intake and exhaust cams as needed. So when it's not functioning you really feel the difference. The car will be down on power and torque, especially in the mid-range, and your fuel economy will decrease. There may be other telltale signs - camshaft or VAN0S fault codes, misfires and fault codes, and the dreaded "vanos rattle" that signs like marbles in a coffee can but is actually the bearings allowing too much play in the VANOS piston shaft. A new VAN0S unit will do wonders for your car's performance!

Diagnosis and repair depends on what symptoms you have. Trouble codes and faults can usually be traced to a camshaft position sensor or the solenoid not allowing the VANOS to move. But the rattle is a sure sign that the VAN0S is in need of a rebuild. But be aware that a rattling noise could mean other things as well such as the timing chain or tensioner. The typical lifespan of the Original BMW units is 130-150,000 miles. Our rebuilt VAN0S units use better quality bearings, seals, and o-rings, as well as some other tricks, that work better and last longer. How much longer? We don't really know - in over 10 years of selling rebuilt VAN0S units we've never sold a replacement for them!

Our rebuilt and improved dual VANOS units for the M52TU and M54 engines come complete with rebuilt solenoids, all new seals, o-rings, bearings, and the VAN0S cover gasket. It's ready for installation right out of the box. A core charge applies so we can continue to offer rebuilt units at an attractive price (a third of the price of a Genuine BMW unit!). This rebuilt unit is as complete as possible to get back that missing power and smoothness as quickly as possible.

Includes $150 refundable core charge

If you're not sure if your Vanos seals are bad then the only question you need to answer is if you've replaced them. Every unit from the factory came with the same failure prone o-rings and seals, even the re-manufactured units you can still get today. The only real fix is by replacing the seals and o-rings with material that is built to last in the oiled, extreme temperature environment found in these kits.

A premium product replacement with easy to follow instructions makes rebuilding your Vanos unit a must. Even thought the power loss is barely felt it's the opposite result once you replace the seals, every car that gets rebuilt ends up wowing the customer and all of them saying they didn't realize what they lost.

There are a number of symptoms that will plague your car as a result of these failing seals such as erratic idle, engine hesitation, stalling, and increased fuel consumption to name a few. If you've been chasing down any of these symptoms with no fix then this could be your issue.

While you 're replacing the seals in your Vanos unit it a good time to install anti-rattle spacers to tighten up the gaps in your stock assembly and get rid of that noisy Vanos clatter.
