Cam Oil Guides DIY 1997 E420

Hi all:

It's time to replace the cam oil guides on my 97 E420. I'm going to do the driver's side first as there's a ticking sound at number 8 cylinder. I'll do the passenger side as required down the road. I've been looking for a DIY guide without success, could someone direct me to a DIY guide? Failing that, are there any special tools required? Are parts other than the cam oilers and O rings, such as gaskets required? Should I take the opportunity to perform other tasks while I have the cam cover off? Finally and rather importantly for me, as I tend to get in trouble easily, are there any pitfalls to avoid?

Thanks to all at the forum. In the last four years you've help make driving my E420 an affordable treat!

Cheers, Alan

Thanks OhLord. A DIY article like that certainly gives a guy some confidence.

All the best, Chato
