Oh, you mean the camshaft adjusters. Yeah, those are fun. There is a special tool (see below) but I've read that other people have done it without the fancy tool. You have to follow the directions in the FSM... click here, see the last 2 pages, steps 10-18. The special tool just makes it easier by clamping the spring down so you don't have to squeeze it the whole time.Dave...are there any hints on how to get these cam sprockets back on?....esp. the intake.
I've tried putting the inner part of the sproket on the cam first then the outer part, with the teeth, over the inner...that didn't work. With the two parts assembled I can't seem to get the whole sprocket to go on completely.
Of course fighting the spring just adds to the enjoyment.
Any hints? Is there an order in which to put all the sprokets back on? Thanks
