BMW timing lock tools

I need to replace the seal in my Vanos and wanted to give it a go myself rather than pay for a couple hours labour at a shop. But I don't have the tools to lock the cams and crank.

So if anyone happens to have them around, I'd really appreciate it if I could borrow or rent them. Don't really feel like waiting on buying a kit off the net since I probably wouldn't use them again.

So I'm looking for:

Camshafts lock blocks
sprocket turner
crankshaft lock pin
camshaft tensioner lock pin


Any help would be great, Thanks.

There's a way to remove/install cams without the special tools. It's described on the PelicanParts.com website.

he's talking about timing the cams. You definetly need the cam lock tools to time your engine %100

I dont need to remove the cams. Just need the tools or something similar to lock the cams and keep them from moving so I can unbolt the sprocket on the vanos.

I'll check out pelican parts for something.

If you've never done this I wouldn't suggest doing it. You don't need 2 remove any gears off the cams the vanos slides in and out. Your just going 2 have to do the timming again.

Yup, it's most likely going to Bimmersport.
