Installing
  Note
Renew bolts that are tightened with specified tightening angle.
Renew gasket and seal with oil strainer.
–  Check “TDC” position of camshaft and crankshaft:
Engine codes CPTA, CZEA
 

Removing and installing camshaft housing

Camshaft clamp -T10504- fitted on camshaft housing.
Engine codes CHPA, CMBA, CPVA, CXSA, CZDA, CZCA, CPVB
 

Removing and installing camshaft housing

Camshaft clamp -T10494- must be attached to camshaft housing.
Risk of damage to valve gear caused by camshafts being moved in axial direction.Never move camshafts in axial direction when turning them.
 

Removing and installing camshaft housing

Locking pin -T10340- screwed into cylinder block as far as stop and tightened to 30 Nm.
Crankshaft has been turned in direction of engine rotation until it rests against locking pin -T10340- = “TDC” position.
 

Removing and installing camshaft housing

–  Check, if all roller rocker fingers are seated properly on valve stem end and if they are clipped into the respective compensation element.
  Note
The oil strainer is fitted only if the cylinder head has the appropriate recess.
Cylinder heads with recess do not require an oil strainer.
–  Fit seal with oil strainer -2- into cylinder head -1-.
–  Fit gasket onto dowel pins -arrows-.
 

Removing and installing camshaft housing

–  Screw 2 studs -items 2, 4- (e.g. -T10288/4-) into cylinder head.
–  Carefully lower camshaft housing -3- vertically onto studs in cylinder head.
  Note
Ensure that camshaft housing is not canted.
–  Tighten bolts for camshaft housing.
Specified torque and tightening sequence, engine codes CPTA, CZEA → Fig..
Specified torque and tightening sequence, engine codes CHPA, CMBA, CPVA, CXSA, CZDA, CZCA, CPVB → Fig.
Remaining installation steps are carried out in reverse sequence; note the following:
–  Install high-pressure pipe → Chapter.
–  Install toothed belt (adjust valve timing) → Chapter.
–  Install ignition coils → Chapter.
–  Install coolant pump → Chapter.
–  Electrical connections and routing → Current flow diagrams, Electrical fault finding and Fitting locations.
Risk of damage to engine
Avoid damage to valves and piston crowns after working on valve gear.
Turn the engine carefully at least 2 rotations to ensure that none of the valves make contact when the starter is operated.
