      TIPS & FEATURES AEuro-Forum - READ!!   10/25/2016

      Tips and Features of AEuromotive Technical Site 1.    Quick Peek Feature:       Hover over any Topic/POST within a Specific Forum or NEW POST.  You’ll notice a pop up window displaying the Original (FIRST POST)
      tab containing the vehicle Information and the Diagnostic Issue.  Next to the FIRST POST tab, there is the LATEST POST tab.
      This is the LATEST Reply to that Topic/POST.  It may contain the FIX,NOT FIXED, or UPDATE to the ongoing Topic/POST. 2.    SEARCH Feature: If you have not tried the SEARCH Engine, I’d advise that you do.
      START at the YELLOW Arrow. Then choose from the flip out flag where you wish to begin your initial search. 
      Use Word, or Words separated by a space or comma.  The more words you enter, the wider the search. 
      DO NOT use words like: the, of, abbreviations will not work.  BE Specific!       You’ll be directed to the second “Refinement Page”.  From there, you can narrow the search criteria, by clicking
      +MORE SEARCH OPTIONS. From there attempt to use both sides of the OPTIONS Menu. 
      USE the SEARCH Engine and get comfortable with navigating it. 2a. TSB/SIB/Recalls/Campaigns SEARCH Feature:       Currently, I am working on having the Feature to SEARCH ONLY for TSB/SIB/Recalls/Campaigns for this site. 
      This is in YELLOW type, as it is currently under development.  I hope to get this to work within the initial SEARCH
      Feature when you CLICK in the SEARCH Field, that "flag" will kick out.  In that Categories list, you'll see a TSB link.
      Within this link, when clicked, you'll choose the MAKE of the vehicle.  Immediately, ENTER all of the WORD or WORDS
      within the TEXT SEARCH FIELD. CLICK the MAGNIFYING GLASS, OR ENTER.
      ALL Technical Service Bulletins RELATED to THAT MAKE will be SEARCHED, and DISPLAYED. 
      Quick SEARCH Feature has been refined for shorter results. I have already ran through some tests with BMW, Mercedes and VW/Audi.        IT WORKS!.  Note! I still have hundreds of TSB/SIB/Recalls,Campaigns, and other related Technical Service Bulletins!
      And this is NOT counting the Domestic and Asian Vehicle MAKES!!  OH, Whoa is ME!!
      Approximately 789 additional FACTORY TSB's in General to do for European.....over 1400 additional TSB Documents
      for Domestic and Asian.  I WILL GET THEM DONE, BUT i HAVE TO DO IT MY WAY (I GIVE GOOD MASSAGE)! FEEDBACK IS ALWAYS WELCOMED....GOOD OR BAD.  GROW A SET AND TALK TO ME.  IF SOMETHING ISN'T RIGHT,
      TELL ME.  MY SKIN LAST MEASURED WITH MY CALIPER WAS 4.378.9" THICK!  USE THIS AND MANY OTHER FEATURES MY FRIENDS! PETER AND I ARE TIRELESSLY ATTACKING THIS SITE WITH $$$$$$
      AND HARD, TIME CONSUMING WORK.  IF YOU HAVEN'T NOTICED............YOU ARE NOT LOOKING!! 3.    Technical Documents Tab: By clicking the Technical Documents Tab, you can SEARCH for TSB’s, SIB’s, and Campaigns.
      and Recalls are available to you.  We have over 1500 document of Factory Level that can help. 
      Again, USE the SEARCH Engine to narrow your results.  Get comfortable with using this great resource. 4. HYPERLINKED Text Within REPLIES in the Topic / POST, Hyperlinks can be added to that reply, or an original Topic / POST.
      It is important that the browser that you are using is set to OPEN a new TAB when a click is clicked. In MOZILLA Browser, quite easy to do.
      Go to the top of your MOZILLA browser and click TOOLS > OPTIONS > GENERAL (on the left sidebar). 
      Then check the check box that states "Open New Windows in a new tab instead" Then, when you click a helpful Hyperlink, a new tab, and windows will open to your top right and will go to the
      hyperlinked page! WARNING!! I would advise, if you are NOT "Computer Literate"....NOT to attempt to Hyperlink Text, as this
      may cause damage to your POST.  ONLY Experienced, "Computer Savvy" Technicians are capable of
      doing this action. 5. STORE Page Check out our STORE.  We have a number of items from Diagnostic Machines, Scanners, Software,
      Training Manuals, and anything that you may wish to purchase.  If it's not there....contact us regarding
      your needs.  We are there to service your everyday Diagnostic and Computer needs.....ALL OEM. NONE of our scanners and Diagnostic Computers are "CLONES, or CLONED" Software.  It is all
      within the "LEGIT" realm for ONLINE and OFFLINE Diagnostic Purposes.  Technology can be your
      friend........or your enemy.  It is your choice.............you get what you pay for HERE!! 6. Member Map This FEATURE is used by ALL Members to locate another Member.  This FEATURE is useful to: Locate another Member in the AREA for help Locate a Member who can help your customer stranded in another Member's Area Quick Location of all the Members of this Collective Help each other make $$$$$$$$$$$$$ Please click the Member Map tab, and register your location.  This system works well for
      all of the Members and may provide you with valuable information, in which to promote
      your Facility!           7. CLOSING/Updating your Topic/POSTS            It is imperative that ALL Topic/Posts are updated on at least a weekly basis, while also, CLOSING your
                Topic/POSTS when you have completed your repairs.  ALL POSTS MUST be CLOSED within 21 Days, or
                updated to keep your ongoing POST from being suspended.           Every time a Member Logs into the site, that member can check how many POSTS he has opened. 
                When first logged in, you will see an initial screen with all of the ongoing POSTS that are OPEN.

                If there are more than 3 OPEN or ongoing POSTS, the Member will NOT be able to add another
                Topic/POST, until one of the 3 POSTS are CLOSED.  If by chance you missed that opening screen
                follow this procedure to see what POSTS are currently OPEN.          Click the “Activity” tab > then click “My Activity Streams” > then click “My Open Topics.
               My Open Topics LIST has been modified to ONLY show the OPEN POSTS without REPLIES. 
               This will make for shorter SEARCHES of your OPEN POSTS.          This will display all of your current OPEN POSTS.  From there, you can close them, if you forgot to,
               or they are NOT FIXED, or FIXED.  PLEASE, be detailed in the last REPLY, so this will help another
               Member at some time, whether you FIXED or did NOT FIX the vehicle.  Details are what help us all, so
               please be a productive Member of this site.  I for one will appreciate your efforts. There is a NEW Feature that I have had out Guru Programmer to the site: 2/13/2017 This feature incorporates a "Back to TOP" Button at the bottom of the POSTS Some POSTS are lengthy in information, which makes scrolling the page, or pages time consuming.  Every little bit
      adds up while researching.  TIME is $$$$$, as I always preach.  So now, when needed, you can scroll to the bottom
      of the POST, then click the "Back to TOP" button to go to the top of that POST.         8. FACEBOOK & Twitter Links         For now, located by the AEuromotive Logo, you'll see some small Facebook & Twitter links.  Mind you,
              these will be replaced with larger ICONS.  This is being worked on as I type.  My coder is getting this accomplished.
              For now, they are linked to the AEuromotive Facebook, and to Peter's Twitter Account LIVE.  I DON'T "TWEET"
             You wish to know my opinion...........better grow an extra inch of skin, then call me and ask.
             Try them, use this to contact Peter.        Again, when this TEXT turns White, it is totally implemented!         9. PICTURES IN POSTS         This FEATURE has been implemented.  When inserting a picture within the POST, make it as small as possible
              to fit within the constraints of the frame.  Any one can then CLICK on the PICTURE to open a new window and
              see the LARGER Version that you had uploaded to the POST.  Please try to keep the original picture within
              2 - 3 MEG in size!  Once you upload the picture, click on that picture and use the corners to shrink
              to fit.
             You can also resize the pictures you add to the POST.  Once you save the POST, click on the picture, you'll
             have the Feature to scroll through all pictures resized in your POST.       10. F5 "REFRESH" Feature         This has always been a WINDOWS Feature, but I thought I'd put this up for those that didn't know:         I have tested FF, IE7, Opera and Chrome.    F5 usually updates the page only if it is modified. The browser usually tries to use all types of cache as much
             as possible and adds an "If-modified-since" header to the request. Opera differs by sending a "Cache-Control: no-cache"        CTRL-F5 is used to force an update, disregarding any cache. IE7 adds an "Cache-Control: no-cache", as does FF,
            which also adds "Pragma: no-cache". Chrome does a normal "If-modified-since" and Opera ignores the key. 11. InfoServer 1 and VMDiagnostics Server InfoServer 1 and VMDiagnostics are already in progress, as InfoServer 1 will be comprised of the following Technical
      Information: 1. ISO Diagnostic Programs updated on a weekly basis.  You will need an ISO Application to unzip, or run these programs
          on a "Virtual DVD" 2. PDF Diagnostic Training and Information Documents, requiring you to have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your
          computer.  You can get it here for FREE: https://get.adobe.com/reader/ 3.   InfoServer 1 is completed and ALMOST ready to connect to this site.  We are waiting for our security license, and our
           OpenVPN setup.  The SSL (Secure Socket Layer) Certificate is in the process of being issued. And STILL waiting!! 4.   All European, Asian and Domestic Makes and Model Information and User Manuals 5.   All Downloads from the InfoServer 1 will be monitored by Platinum Members that do so.  So I can run a report of
           what and when a download occurred.  Limit is 6 - 8GB per Day VMDiagnostics will be comprised of the following Technical Information: Launch Date for February 2017 This InfoServer 2 is a 4.6+GHz machine with up to 64 Gig of RAM and SSHD (Solid State Drives)
      as to prevent lag and slow response as most Virtualized Systems are. This is no "Puppy" System,
      "Full Tilt Boogie" Machine!! 1.   Virtual Programs running LIVE on this Server for Members to access and use Daily (Charge per Day Access) a.  Mercedes
      b. BMW
      c. Mini Cooper
      d.  Volkswagen
      e. Audi
      f. Any other European Make that I can get their FACTORY Programs to run on a  "Virtual Platform"
      g. Domestic Makes (GM, FORD, Chrysler, etc.)
      h.  Asian Makes (Honda, Hyundai, KIA, Mitsubishi, etc.)
      i.  Any Diagnostic Programs that can be "Virtually" operational, I will do so With ALL of the above upcoming Technical Systems coming on line....YOU will be responsible
      for Downloading and Installing these programs...............NOT me.  it is the responsibility of the USER,
      that will have to sign off on the agreement to download and install the programs.  Instructions are included
      in the folders. Please Note!  I will be adding to this ANNOUNCEMENT periodically, so keep coming back to this, and see what other
      Features I have added.  I still have a dozen to add to this ANNOUNCEMENT, as we have upgraded this Forum since
      yesterday 10/24/2016.  Stay Tuned!!

No TSB's

Did find where there was a supposed DME software update back in 2010
for this symptom if anyone can confirm?

Yea I know I need the latest Angelo scanner for this, but I am itching to try the Autel
if there is an update available in it.

CAUSE
One or both (intake and/or exhaust) of the VANOS gear assemblies may have faulty assembly bolts.
One or more of the four assembly bolts have loosened or broken.

PROCEDURE
Perform a DCS inquiry and search for any open recalls, if a recall is not completed for the VANOS gear assemblies then refer to the applicable
Service Information bulletin that is identified in the DCS inquiry. 
If no open recalls exist then proceed to step 2.

If the VANOS gear assembly bolts are found loose or broken, replace the affected VANOS gear assembly. Refer to Repair Instruction 11 36 046,
“Removing and installing or replacing intake and exhaust camshaft units.” 
Additionally, the remaining undamaged VANOS gear assembly will need to have the updated bolts (P/N 11 36 8 602 263) installed.

Refer to the attached document for VANOS gear bolt replacement procedures.

The bolt replacement procedure must be performed when the vehicle’s engine is at room temperature.

Performing the torque sequence described in the attachment when the engine is hot will result in inaccurate torque values.

The ISTA/D repair instructions apply only to the VANOS gear assembly replacement.

If both VANOS gear assembly bolts are found loose or broken then replace both VANOS gear assemblies. Refer to Repair Instruction 11 36 046,
“Removing and installing or replacing intake and exhaust camshaft units.” If the bolts have been found broken, the missing portions of the bolts will need to be retrieved from the engine before the final repairs are made. This additional work may include removing the engine oil pan, and a close examination of the timing chain drive to retrieve the missing parts. Refer to the applicable repair instructions for oil pan removal procedures.

I've seen this before!
The last time I saw this, there were no faults stored or no symptoms happening yet.

Car was here for oil leak, and it was coming from the oil pan gasket (nothing new).
Upon removing oil pan, I found 2 bolt heads sheared at the bottom of the pan just sitting there.

Scary stuff to see....especially when you just sold an oil pan gasket job on an X-Drive vehicle that was pretty expensive.

Where did the bolt heads originate from?

On that car it was the bolts that hold the VANOS adjusters together??
Weirdest thing I had ever seen, back then there wasn't a TSB for it, and even now me looking for it I can't find
the same TSB. Figures.

SI B11 08 14

Recall Campaign 14V-176: N55 Engine – Replace VANOS Gear Bolts 
New information provided by this revision is preceded by this symbol.

This Service Information bulletin supersedes SI B11 08 14 dated September 2014.
PERFORM THE PROCEDURE OUTLINED IN THIS SERVICE INFORMATION ON ALL AFFECTED VEHICLES BEFORE CUSTOMER DELIVERY OR THE NEXT TIME THEY ARE IN THE SHOP FOR MAINTENANCE OR REPAIRS.

BMW centers must ensure Recalls are completed after having been notified by BMW of North America, LLC (BMWNA) that a safety-related defect or noncompliance exists in any motor vehicle or item of replacement equipment in the center's possession at the time of notification. In BMW NA's case, this notification would typically be made by the issuance of a Recall notification in the form of a Service Information bulletin (SIB) or transmission of a Dealer Communication System (DCS) Recall message.

Under the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966, as amended, if a Recall Campaign is announced by BMW NA, centers must ensure that all Recalls on new vehicles and new items of replacement equipment are completed BEFORE delivery to the consumer. This means that centers may not legally deliver new motor vehicles or new items of replacement equipment to consumers with an open Recall.

The Safety Act also prohibits centers from selling or leasing the motor vehicle or item of replacement equipment, unless and until the open Recall has been completed BEFORE delivery. This also pertains to vehicles in the Certified Pre-Owned program, and to items of replacement equipment.

Finally, BMW centers should not sell or use parts that have been recalled by BMW NA. Please follow the specific instructions provided by BMW NA on the return or disposition of the parts.


SITUATION-
The VANOS adjustment units may develop an internal oil leakage that will no longer allow the VANOS to adjust quickly enough. Due to this leakage, the vehicle’s engine emergency mode and engine malfunction is permanently active.
 
AFFECTED VEHICLES
 This Recall involves certain E70, E71, E82, E88, E90, E92, E93, F07, F10, F10H, F12, F13 and F25 vehicles with the N55 engine produced from September 2009 to November 2011. Vehicles which require this Recall Campaign will show the following Campaign Code: 00 11 27 03 00

The Campaign Code is located in the “Open Campaign Information” section in the DCSnet Warranty Vehicle Inquiry and in the Key Reader.

First check if a Recall Campaign label with a code number 684 is already attached to the vehicle’s B-pillar.

If a code number 684 has been punched out, the Campaign has already been performed and no further action is necessary.


UNAFFECTED VEHICLES-
Vehicles which had both VANOS adjustment units (P/N 11 36 7 583 207 and P/N 11 36 7 583 208) or a complete new or re-manufactured engine assembly (with cylinder head) previously replaced on or after September 1, 2012 have installed parts that meet the requirements of this Recall Campaign. No further repair is necessary.

 
CORRECTION
On the affected vehicles: 
Replace the VANOS assembly’s gear bolts on the units that do not have any loose and/or broken bolts (one side or both as applicable). 
 If the gear bolts on a VANOS assembly are found loose and/or broken, replace the entire VANOS assembly. If the heads of the bolts are broken, the missing pieces must be found and removed from the engine before the engine repairs are completed. 
The VANOS assembly bolt removal and installation video can be viewed via the TIS Website:

Select “Service Reference” from the top menu bar. 
Select “Service Videos” 
Select “General Search” 
Select “[11] Engine” and “Submit” 
Select “V11 03 14 September 2014 – Recall 14V- 176: N51, N52K, N52T and N55 Engine – Replace VANOS Gear Bolts.

Do not automatically replace both VANOS assemblies if only one unit has a loose and/or broken bolt(s).

Refer to the attachment for special tool requirements, tool operation and repair procedures.


This Recall Campaign has been assigned code number 684 . After the vehicle has been checked and/or corrected, obtain a label (SD 92-439) and: 
Emboss your BMW center warranty number in the middle of the label (1); 
Punch out code number 684 (2), printed on the label; and 
Affix the label to the B -pillar.
