BMW X5: Replacing Crankshaft (N52K)

Special tools required:

IMPORTANT: Aluminium-magnesium materials.

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

A magnesium crankcase requires aluminium screws/bolts exclusively.

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:

Release screws (1).

Tightening torque: 11 13 6AZ.

Installation:

Replace aluminium screws.

Remove oil deflector (2).

NOTE: Picture shows the screw connection of the oil deflector (2) for vehicles with optional extra SA203 (all-wheel drive).
