Customer Question

2008 Mini Cooper Hatchback non-turbo) I am getting a p0015 and P1339 error code. I have ordered and received a VANOS solenoid and am about to replace. But I see there are actually two on my car. One on the front and one on the back. Which one should I replace? I also ordered a Cam Position Sensor. Again there are tow. Which one should i replace to repair this error?
Thank you in advance.

P0015 is for the exhaust and code P1339 is a code for the cam position sensor B bank 1.If you need locations of the banks let me know.

Hello,Yes my original question was asking which, by location, cam position sensor and Vanos solenoid should I swap out? There are two each on my car.
Expert:  peterpete190 replied 11 months ago.

It looks like B6224a is the cam sensor needing replaced.

I would start with this and see if any of the codes come back after it is replaced and let me know as sometimes this sensor acting up can cause other codes and issues here.

Thanks Pete
