N47 diesel quality control valve

 I know this picture sucks but down there is the High pressure pump for the N47 Diesel engine ,,,,,the pump is located under the intake manifold and at the rear of the engine,,,,the car came in with check engine light on injector cut off cylinder 1,,,,so we have to submit a Puma case to release fuel injectors. So Puma wanted me to remove the quality control valve on the high pressure fuel pump,,,,the valve is bolted on the side of the pump with 2 bolts nothing fancy just difficult to get to. What they wanted to see if the screen was clean of any metal pieces,,,,as you can see it was clean,,,Puma wanted to make sure the high pressure pump was not coming apart,,,,so since everything was clean they had me replace the injector.

B58 engine

 Here a look at the inside of the new B58 6 cylinder,,,,as you can see the vanos units and timing chain are at the rear next to the firewall,,,,,that will be a fun job when the time comes,,,the cylinder head is more stream line,,,,the ins are more simpler,,,,the eccentric motor is now outside the cylinder head it is sitting at the top front of the engine next to the intake manifold.

F15 X5 fuel door pot

 Ok I screwed up with the pictures order,,,,here I’m putting in a new fuel door pot which comes with a new fuel door actuator on a F15 X5 ,,,,when you replace the fuel door lock actuator you’re place the whole thing,,,,,now here comes the stupid part. So you see this little detent,,,,there is four of these one in each corner,,,,so you push these out so you can release the tabs and remove the fuel door pot.,,,,that part is ok. Now here is the stupid part,,,,once you have all 4 punched out it will look like this,,,,now the fuel door pot is useless,,,,,you must replace it,,,,you can not reuse it because you will have 4 stupid holes that you can not cover,,,,BMW does not have replacement plugs,,,,the new fuel door pot is complete,,,,soim you ever have to remove it for some reason like get the fill neck out or do some body work you can not reuse this part without have 4 visible holes when you open the fuel door.
