Customer Question

I removed whole R56/N12 exhaust VANOS without locking intake and exhaust VANOS. And timing is out of sync. How can I set it by visibly checking piston position and sprocket marks?

Hello and Welcome! I'm Billy and i will assist you with your inquiry. Feel free to ask if any further info is needed.
