BMW E60 M5: Rod Bearings How To

This is a mammoth job! I purchased the kit from It was missing a gasket for the oil filter pickup (I really hope they include it in the future) but apart from that it was top notch. 

It’s not a complete how to video on the BMW M5 rod bearings but a time lapse of what is required. I know when I was thinking about doing this job I wasn’t really sure what I was getting myself in for. I wanted to create a video that would help someone understand what is involved to see if they wanted to do it. 

I also uncover how to set backlash correctly on the VANOS high pressure pumps. All of the videos and descriptions I found out there were very misleading and you might end up with too much backlash. Enjoy!
