Question about BMW 323
Common problem on a car of this age. Easily replaced component. I cannot tell you how easily because you did not mention your car model. If you have a three series, it is a thumb-sized sensor that connects to the front of the valve cover, right next to the oil filter holder. all you need to do is loosen the top of the oil line for the VANOS in order to access the screw that holds the cam position sensor in place. You should replace the soft washers at the top of the oil line so you don't develop a leak there. That oil line itself is a common leak point, so you might want to look at it before you buy the sensor. Now would be a good time to replace both parts if the oil line is leaking.
