BMW E46 M3 VANOS Units & Parts

BMW E46 M3 VANOS Units & Parts 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.
You're currently viewing parts for your (E46) M3 2001-2006. Reset your chassis
For accurate results, specify your model below.
Fillister Head Screw / Updated S54 VANOS Mounting Bolt 07129905536 This M6x16 mounting screw is used throughout the BMW model range on a variety of components. Most importantly, this is the latest updated version of the cam sprocket mounting bolt used in the E46 M3 S54 engine (and MZ3 and Z4 M). The original VAN0S-cam gear mounting bolts are known for weakness and a sheared bolt will quickly lead to VAN0S or terminal engine failure. 12 are required for S54 VAN0S bolt replacement (6 per cam sprocket). All other quantities vary based on application.
Part #: 07129905536
Price: $0.95 (USD) 
Quantity:   
VANOS Solenoid Valve - E46 M3, Z3M(S54), Z4M This is the solenoid switch that activates the VAN0S system on the E46 M3 and Z3/Z4 M S54 engine. 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 S54 engines.

If you are looking to install the VAN0S 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.

This solenoid valve fits the following BMWs:
2001-2006 E46 BMW M3
2001-2002 Z3 BMW M Roadster M Coupe - S54 engine
2006-2008 Z4 BMW M Roadster M Coupe
Part #: 11367839180
Price: $863.95 (USD)

Timing Chain Guide, Upper - E46 M3, Z3 S54, Z4 M This is a plastic guide rail for the timing chain on the E46 M3, MZ3 S54, and Z4 M (all S54 cars). We have found that on high mileage engines this plastic piece has worn down, especially at the tip. If allowed to completely wear out it could lead to some very bad engine damage as the timing chain flops about and maybe even jumps teeth on the camshafts or crank gear. When replacing the S54 VANOS unit you should also replace this guide rail which is located close-by. A new crush washer is included.

This item fits the following BMWs:
2001-2006 E46 BMW M3
2001-2002 Z3 BMW Z3 M Roadster M Coupe
2006-2008 E85 BMW Z4 M Roadster M Coupe
Part #: 11317830159K
Price: $31.90 (USD) 
Quantity:   
VANOS Cover Gasket - E46 M3, MZ3, Z4 M This is the steel/rubber VANOS gasket between the VANOS unit and cylinder head. It's a must-have item when replacing the VANOS unit and also a potential leak point on the S54. The original gasket cannot be re-used so make sure you have a new one on hand.

This item fits the following BMWs:
2001-2006 E46 BMW M3
2001-2002 Z3 BMW Z3 M Roadster M Coupe
2003-2008 E85 BMW Z4 M Roadster M Coupe
Part #: 11367831938
Price: $16.33 (USD) 
Quantity:   
VANOS Filter for S54 Engine - E46 M3, MZ3, Z4 M The S54 engine uses BMW's VAN0S variable-valve timing mechanism. There is a filter inside the oil pressure valve that prevents contaminents from lodging in the system. Replacing or cleaning the filter is simple insurance to prevent VAN0S failure. And a clean filter allows oil to pass unobstructed, meaning more efficient VAN0S operation. This tiny filter slips on the end of the oil pressure valve, located on the side of the VAN0S unit. Kit includes part numbers 11361401971, 11311318659, and 11361403325. Replacement is a simple procedure with new o-rings included .

Applications:
2001-2002 Z3 M Coupe, M Roadster with S54 engine
2001-2006 E46 M3 coupe, convertible
2006-2009 Z4 M Coupe, M Roadster

Part #: 11361401971G
Price: $31.85 (USD) 
Quantity:   
VANOS Sealing Plate Between Adjusting Unit and Solenoid - E46 M3, Z3M, Z4M This sealing flange is located between the VAN0S adjusting unit and the VAN0S solenoid on the S54 engine. It can be the source of oil leaks and should be replaced when the the VAN0S solenoid is.

This item fits the following BMWs:
2001-2006 E46 BMW M3
2001-2002 Z3 BMW M Roadster M Coupe (S54)
2006-2008 E85 BMW Z4 M Roadster M Coupe
Part #: 11367831906
Price: $32.95 (USD) 
Quantity:   
VANOS Oil Pressure Valve for S54 - E46 M3, MZ3, Z4 M The engine oil is the blood of the VAN0S system. Without a strong flow of oil, the VAN0S will ultimately fail. Oiling problems killed a lof of the VAN0S units on previous BMW engines. - don't let it happen to your S54. Proper maintenace will avoid a costly repair bill in the future. Replacement VAN0S units are over $2500! Replacing the filter or this entire pressure valve is the smart step to take. This is a new oil pressure valve with new seals and a new filter.

Applications:
2001-2002 Z3 M Coupe, M Roadster with S54 engine
2001-2006 E46 M3 coupe, convertible
2006-2009 Z4 M Coupe, M Roadster
