Hi,

I'm working to replace my front exhaust cam seal. However, I need to reach the rear of the intake and exhaust CAM so that I can lock it down with the locking tool. I seem to have run into an issue. I can't seem to gain access to the exhaust cam sensor. There's this metal bracket(?) in front of it locking it in place. I see 3 bolts, but they're on really tight. Would these 3 bolts release the bracket? Thanks!

Don't try that job yourself. Take to dealer you get life time warranty and likly you will cause major engine damage if you don't know what you are doing

I thought qaz996 provided you a response (post#8) on the same question you had asked in this thread: http://forums.swedespeed.com/showthread.php?275849-Torx-set-recommendation-for-CAM-Seal-Job

I believe it is called an upper engine stabilizer brace and yes, it needs to come off so that you can get the camshaft position sensor cover off and access the rear of the camshaft with what we all hope is now your newly purchased "proper" locking tool.

Can also try a search for "Camshaft seal/variable valve timing (VVT) unit, replacing" or go here (need user name and login) www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forums/download/file.php?id=28845 to get a better idea as to the other items that need removed and the sequence of removal. While this link only has one VVT pulley on the engine, you can figure out the slight difference in doing two. Or you can re-review some of the responses in your previous threads.

Really need to feel comfortable in doing this job before jumping right in, lots of things can go wrong. And when they go wrong on an "interference" engine as this one is, they go wrong badly.

Good luck!
