Bmw 525 cam chain

Recommended Posts

Hi I’m thinking about buying a bmw 525d auto and would like some real world drivers advice please. I can’t find out for certain if you have to remove the engine if your looking at changing the cam chain and tensioners on a (approximately 2007) 525d. Has anyone done this on higher mileage cars and if so what prices did you pay main dealer or independent garages.?? Also how reliable is the gearbox and what should you look out for. I believe the 520d is a chain but it’s not at the back of the engine so much easier to change but Im wondering being in the 5 series would the 2.0d feel underpowered.?? Any help would be very much appreciated

You don't have to remove the engine, but many do for ease of access to chain.
