These instructions are for experienced technicians only. An experienced technician should only do this job.

STEP 1

Before starting Valve Stem Seal Replacement, please complete the following steps.

Tools Needed to Complete Preliminary Work:

  • AGA Direct Fuel Injection Kit (AGA-DFI-KIT) or BMW Injector Remover and install tools.
  • AGA Cam Timing Kit (AGA-CTK-N63) or BMW Timing kit and chain tensioner tool.
  • If you have access to the BMW TIS, or through All Data, Mitchell, etc., follow the step-by-step instructions. If you are using the AGA direct fuel injector tool kit and cam timing kit, please refer to the instructions provided with your kit.

  • Remove the direct fuel injectors, right (Bank 1) and left (Bank 2). See AGA-DFI-Kit instructions.
  • Remove the Valve Covers, right (Bank 1) and left (Bank 2).
  • Remove the right (Bank 1) side Cams and rocker arms only. Leave the lifters in the head and DO NOT remove left side cams (Bank 2).
  • See AGA’s cam tool instructions for more details, or the process is also described in BMW TIS or Simular as 11 33 054 “Removing and installing/renewing rocker arms on R side (N63)”
  • STEP 2

    Install a yellow cap onto each of the injectors (1) and the high-pressure fuel supply rail (2).

    Install one orange cap onto the supply high-pressure pump supply port (3).

    Part #: AGA-CI-Y12 (yellow)

    Part #: AGA-CP-0-14 (orange)

    Always store the high-pressure pumps in a clean location to avoid contamination.

    STEP 3

    Wrap cylinder bank #1 timing chain with a small shop towel to protect it from contamination.

    STEP 4

    Gently clean the upper portion of the injector bores with the brush before installing the fuel injector-sealing plug.

    Part #: AGA-HB-8-34

    STEP 5

    5. Install the fuel injector sealing plugs (1) into the cylinder 1 and 2 injector bores (2).

    Part #: AGA-FISP-N63

    STEP 6

    Reinstall the injector hold-down bracket and torque the M7 hex bolt to 13 Nm. (1)

    STEP 7

    Install the two red plugs into the remaining open injector bores (1), so that debris does not fall into the cylinders while performing the repairs.

    Part #: AGA-IBPP-N63

    STEP 8

    Install the eight supplied plug brushes (1) into the eight oil drain back holes (see arrows) in the cylinder head, located on either side of the head bolts.

    If a collet is dropped, use a magnet to retrieve the collet from around the brush. Do not remove the brushes until all collets are accounted for.

    Part #: AGA-N63-PB-34

    STEP 9

    Install the U-bend plug brush (1) into the cylinder head drain back hole just below the exhaust camshaft (see arrow).

    If a collet is dropped, use a magnet to retrieve the collet from around the brush. Do not remove the brushes until all collets are accounted for.

    Part #: AGA-N63-UP8-34

    STEP 10

    There are four drain back holes in the cylinder head near the hydraulic valve lash adjusters (HVA). See arrows.

    STEP 11

    Block all four holes with a standard white lithium grease. See arrows.

    Always use a standard white lithium grease that can be applied with a brush that has been stored properly in its container and not contaminated with foreign materials.

    Using a white lithium grease in a spray can will not provide the same functions in this procedure.

    Overview of the plug brushes (1) and the white lithium grease (2)





    STEP 12

    Exhaust camshaft position: Using two of the four bolts that hold the high-pressure pump housing, install the cam bracket (1) and a compression plate (2) onto the front of the cylinder head, above the cylinder 1 ignition coil bore.

    Use a T45 and hand-tighten the bolts.

    Part #: AGA-CB-N63 (Cam Bracket)

    Part #: AGA-CP-N63 (Compression Plate)

    STEP 13

    Exhaust camshaft position: Reinstall the “LA5” exhaust camshaft bearing cap (1) with a compression plate (2) onto the rear of the cylinder head.

    Use a T45 and hand-tighten the bolts.

    Part #: AGA-CP-N63 (Compression Plate)

    STEP 14

    Intake camshaft position: Reinstall the “LE2” intake camshaft bearing cap (1) with a compression plate (2) onto the front of the cylinder head.

    Use a T45 and hand-tighten the bolts.

    Part #: AGA-CP-N63 (Compression Plate)

    STEP 15

    Intake camshaft position: Reinstall the “LE5” intake camshaft bearing cap (1) with a compression plate (2) onto the rear of the cylinder head.

    Use a T45 and hand-tighten the bolts.

    Part #: AGA-CP-N63 (Compression Plate)

    STEP 16

    Screw four of the black plastic spark plug TDC tools (1) into each of the spark plug holes (see arrows) to avoid debris from falling into the cylinders.

    Hand-tighten the tool (1) using tool number 12 1 220 and short 3/8 extension.

    Insert the TDC flag into cylinder 1 (2).

    Part #: AGA-SPT12-125

    STEP 17

    Hold the timing chain in one hand (1) and rotate the engine slowly in the clockwise direction (see arrow) while keeping the tension on the chain with one hand (1).

    Do not allow the timing chain to fall down into the engine.

    Stop turning the engine when TDC is reached.

    It is good practice to turn the engine 1-2° past TDC (clockwise), so that the compressed air does not turn the engine backwards.

    Do not apply compressed air to the cylinder yet.

    STEP 18

    Install the timing chain holder (1) onto the opposite cylinder bank timing chain guide rail.

    Installing this tool will prevent the engine from rotating when the compressed air is applied to the cylinders using a leak-down tester.

    Make sure the teeth on the tool match the chain teeth (2) before tightening.

    Tighten gently with just one hand.

    Part #: AGA-CH-N63

    STEP 19

    Use a cylinder leak-down tester to supply air pressure to the cylinder. The air pressure will hold the valve in the closed position while removing the valve spring retainer, valve spring, and keepers.

    A leak-down tester already has a predetermined pressure, so that no damage occurs to the engine.

    Never apply shop air directly to the cylinder.

    STEP 20

    Assemble the compression block (1) onto the compression nut and compression screw (2).

    Install the ratcheting box wrench (3) and the locator handle (4).

    Use the laminated card in the kit to identify which compression foot (5) is required, based on the location of the valve spring in the cylinder head.

    For example: The cylinder 1 exhaust front spring position requires the compression foot marked with an “R” = right (5).

    STEP 34

    Install the keepers (1) into the N63 valve keeper tool (2) supplied in the kit.

    Part #: AGA-N63-6mm-VKT

    STEP 35

    Apply a small amount of white lithium grease to the keeper grooves (1).

    STEP 36

    Place the N63 keeper tool with keepers (1) over the valve stem (2), and move the tool gently side to side to release the keepers (see arrow).

    Gently lift the tool straight up, and the keepers will be left behind on the valve stem.

    STEP 37

    Inspect the position of the keepers on the valve stem to make sure they are in the proper position.

    Do not wipe away any grease.

    STEP 38

    Rotate the compression nut (1) clockwise until the compression foot (2) releases the tension on the valve spring retainer (3).

    Hold the locator handle (4) firmly to keep the compression foot properly centered on the valve spring retainer, so that the valve keepers seat correctly in the retainer (3).

    STEP 39

    Remove the compression lever rod (1) from the compression plates (2) located on the camshaft bearing caps.

    Remove the compression block (3) from the compression lever rod (1) in the direction of the arrows.

    STEP 40

    Wipe away excess grease.

    Inspect the valve stem (1), keepers (2), and the spring retainer (3) for the proper alignment before continuing.

    If the alignment is not correct, you will have to repeat steps 32-40.

    STEP 41

    Repeat steps 19 through 40 for the remaining valve seals on cylinder 1.

    STEP 42

    When cylinder 1 is complete, release the air supply from that cylinder and repeat steps 17 through 40 for cylinders 2, 3 and 4.

    With cylinder 1 at 150° before TDC:

    See AGA’s cam tool instructions, or this process is described in BMW TIS or Simular as: 11 33 052, “Removing and installing/renewing rocker arms on left side (N63).” For further instructions, watch “AGA BMW N63 Cam Timing Tool.

    Reassemble the remaining portion of the vehicle per the repair instructions.

    Are the valve stem seals you sell OEM?

    No. The valve stem seals included in our kits are manufactured by Elring and made out of Viton, a brand of synthetic rubber and fluoropolymer elastomer that withstands high temperatures better than the OEM seals supplied by BMW.

    Is there a way to tell if my stem seals are good without having to remove them?

    There is no way to determine the condition of the seals without removing them. However, if you have no oil consumption or smoke coming from the tail pipe, your seals should be in good condition. As a reference we typically see vehicles come in for the valve stem seals at about 90,000-120,000 miles, when the car is smoking.
