I discovered a parts breakdown that showed the plastic mushroom-shaped piece that lives inside the spring at the piston end. Got her all buttoned up. Keeping my fingers crossed that I've killed my oil leak.

Re: How to: Timing chain tensioner lining replacement

Did I install this seal in here backwards?

Re: How to: Timing chain tensioner lining replacement

It looks correct to me as the lip is formed facing in towards the motor. The other side of the seal is plain looking and if you look in Clymer page 90, diagram 40 you will see what I mean. Are you using Clymer? It does have a very good section on this job

Re: How to: Timing chain tensioner lining replacement

No, I don't have a Clymer. I have the BMW shop manual, which has no picture of the seal as installed. It has three wonderful pictures of the BMW tools required to install the seal, which doesn't help me at all. The way I have this seal installed, the sealing contact point is at the very outside end of the crankshaft. The previous seal's contact point appeared to have been much closer towards the cam chain gear, as indicated by a shiny wear pattern on the crankshaft. That, along with the HUGE oil leak I've created makes me think I have this in backwards.
