My 95 325i has a production date of 4/95. When I took out the tensioner, it has a flat style piston, no fork, no groove. Does that I mean this step does not apply:

"Place a new sealing ring on the tensioner, and insert the tensioner into its hole in the cylinder head. At this point, the two small fingers on the tensioner should line up with a mating ridge on the chain guide inside the cylinder head."

Is it that easy for my car? remove, replace the spring and washer. Tighten back into place, no alignment necessary!? Of course torque to the proper value. Do you know the torque setting? Thanks!

yes, should be as simple as replace the tensioner and e the sealing washer. I donít have torque information.

I would suggest you grab a repair manual, you should own one. It will have the procedure, special tools and torque specs.

Give our parts specialists a call at 1-888-280-7799.
