    To any member in Austin/Round Rock area; would someone be willing to assist me in changing out the Vanos solenoids.
    I am throwing currently the exhaust code.
    I am not very mechanical in nature, but more than willing to learn.
    As the DIY videos shows, it is very easy, but I am not comfortable attempting it on my own.
    Let me know ASAP

    Hi Steve - you might have better luck getting in touch with someone local via your chapter website/social media - it's possible someone here is in your area, but starting locally is much more likely -



    Your chapter officers might be know someone in your area who could be of help - I got an error from the Tejas chapter website link for their message boards, you can see if you get the same.

    I've never tackled your project so I don't know how involved it is - besides info you find on the 'net, if you're going to be tackling some of your own maintenance, I've found Bentley manuals to be well worth the price.

    It's very easy to replace these solenoids and would be a great starter repair for some one.

    Pull them both, clean them, switch their postions. Exhaust solenoid goes in the intake and vice versa. This will worked for me for almost a year. Cheers.
