Special tools required:

IMPORTANT: Aluminium screws/bolts must be replaced each time they are released.

The end faces of aluminium screws/bolts are painted blue for the purposes of reliable identification.

Jointing torque and angle of rotation must be observed without fail (risk of damage).

Necessary preliminary tasks:

If necessary, move eccentric shaft (1) on twin surface to minimum lift (2).

  1. Eccentric shaft with bearing
  2. Bearing caps of eccentric shaft (set out in order)
  3. Inlet camshaft
  4. Bearing caps of inlet camshaft (set out in order)
  5. Inlet valves with valve springs
  6. Valve plates and valve cotters
  7. Cam followers with HVCA elements (set out in order)
  8. Torsion springs
  9. Guide blocks (set out in order)
  10. Intermediate levers (set out in order)

Release screws (1) on guide block (2).

Tightening torque: 11 37 1AZ.

Place all guide blocks (2) in neat order in special tool 11 4 481.

Installation:

Mixing up the guide blocks (2) will cause the engine to suffer idle-speed fluctuations.

This will result in maladjustment of uniform distribution.

Variable Valve Gear
Fig. 233: Screws And Guide Block

Installation:

All contact surfaces (1) of guide block must be clean and free from oil and grease. If necessary, clean contact surfaces (1).

Lift out intermediate levers (2).

Place all intermediate levers (2) in neat order in special tool 11 4 481.

Installation:

Mixing up the intermediate levers (2) will cause the engine to suffer idle-speed fluctuations.

Installation:

All contact surfaces (1) must be clean and free from oil and grease. If necessary, clean contact surfaces (1).

Secure special tool 11 4 450 to bolt connection (1) of eccentric shaft.

Turn eccentric lever (3) on special tool 11 4 450 in direction of arrow.

Guide block is now pretensioned.

Insert screws (2) of guide blocks.

Tightening torque: 11 37 1AZ.

Installation:

At cylinder no. 3, the guide block can be pre-installed with one screw (internal) only.

Oil spray nozzle is fitted only after torsion spring has been installed.
