Customer Question
Trying to replace VVT...

Trying to replace VVT solenoid in 2009 C70 T5. Solenoid I removed seems to have left a sleve behind in the head. New solenoid seems to have this outer sleve integrated into the solenoid, not removeable. Looks like a big job to get those sleves out of the head where the VVT solenoids slide in. Has anyone come across this problem. Need a solution, hate to think of pulling the head to pound those sleves out from the inside.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your C70 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, with the assistance of a family member who works at a local auto repair garage. I have VVT solenoids out and need to get the new ones in but they don't fit. Part is correct we checked it with supplier by the VIN #.

This did not answer my question. Are you sure you read my question?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I need someone who knows this cylinder head inside and out, not just a page out of a shop manual. I know how to remove and install per manual instructions. When there is an assembly on the cylinder head that does not match the diagram, this is where the problem is. I need an expert who has seen this before. Thanks
