Where can I get o-ring seals or repair kit for an N46T? (320I)

Recommended Posts

As the title suggests, I've been trying to find o-ring replacements for both my VANOS solenoids on my 2011 320i. I have found a few places but nothing /seems/ to suggest they work on this engine.

Hi Tony

While doing my vanos rebuild with a kit from overseas, I damaged the piston seal. 

I called into http://advancedseals.co.nz  in Albany with the kit including the damaged seal.

They were able to replace the piston seal (saved me a 10 day wait) but they also said they could supply all the other O rings in the kit, just not at the price I'd paid.

So I'm sure that they will be able to help

Does help a lot! Assuming mine isn't dead now... something blew out on the motorway today. Seal? Plug? I have mechanical warranty still so shes off to the shop. But not looking good. Engine bay is a pool of oil.
