Hi.

At the moment I cannot reach the service manual for this model.
Please see if 4.1.1 and 4.1.2 in the timing chain tool manual can help.

No timing marks. All done with special tools. Pin for crankshaft at gearbox end, camshaft alignment tools, cam locking tool, chain tesion tool. If you havent done it before, leave it to a professional.

Bmw m42 engine. The sprockets on the camshafts must be refitted, which way do the arrows point


You must use a special tool which bolts onto the cylinder head. It is designed to hold the camshafts in the proper position. It goes over the flats on the camshafts to hold the camshafts in the correct position. This tool can be rented. Look on EBay or check with your local Snap On Tools, Mac Tools, or Matco Tools dealers to rent one. See the link below for photos of properly aligned timing marks for your engine.

I have 2003 bmw 318ti 2door i would like to know has it got a timing belt or timing chain thanking you in advance bill volman


It has a timing CHAIN, not a belt. ALL BMWs have timing chains, unless it is an OLDER BMW, which only then might have a belt-driven timing.
