NOTE: Check stored fault messages. Now clear the fault memory.

REMOVING/REPLACING KNOCK SENSORS (N52, N52K, N51)

IMPORTANT: Aluminum-magnesium materials.

No steel screws/bolts may be used due to the threat of electrochemical corrosion.

A magnesium crankcase requires aluminum screws/bolts exclusively.

Aluminum screws/bolts must be replaced each time they are released.

The end faces of aluminum 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:

IMPORTANT: Mixing up the knock sensor plug connections will result in engine damage! Routing of wires and plug connections must conform to the original routing.

This eliminates the risk of confusion and mix-ups.

Release screws on both knock sensors. Remove knock sensors (1).

Installation:

Replace aluminum screws.

Tightening torque 12 14 1AZ.
