BMW Timing Chain Tensioner Lower - Ruville 11317531813

Lower chain tensioner

This timing chain tensioner is mounted in the timing cover and can be removed without dis-assembly. This tensioner is likely the culprit if you have noisy timing chains.

Timing chains are like timing belts in that they keep the major components of the engine's combustion cycle in sync. Timing belt tensioners and timing chain tensioners perform the same job of keeping the chain/belt at the right tension. If the timing chain tensioner fails there is a high risk of chain failure, this it should be replaced immediately.

As Good As I Thought

This part is just as good as the one that was originally installed in my car. Quality is great and price tag is better. It's the real manufacturer of the part for BMW anyway. Save some money instead of paying almost the double just to have the BMW logo on it.

Fixed Rattle

e39 540s are prone to issues with the timing guides and rattle on startup if you let this maintenance part go. At 115000 or so was money very well spent and an easy 10 minute fix. Do yourself a big favor and do this if you have not. It completely quiets the startup valve rattle on my 2003 540 sport. If the chain slap causes your lower timing chain guides to fail you will wish you had spent this small purchase. Engine can be totaled if the chain guides fail and the lower chain slips. Btw do not install this with a universal joint on your socket wrench as many DYIs suggest simply remove the air filter box and use a straight short extension that way you will get the torque correct on the install. Another good value from fcp.
