VCG was leaking and dripping down near the sensor. Now I have a new sensor/o-ring so hopefully shouldn't leak going forward even though it never was.

Default Re: DIY: exhaust camshaft position sensor.

I drove around all week with the SES p0365 and p0017. Car seemed to drive fine. After clearing codes once a day, got tired of it. Went to the dealer and got the sensor today. For some reason I decided to take a look at midnight tonight. Dug around my tool box to find the perfect setup. A 3/8" gear wrench flex head, a matching bit holder and 5mm hex bit. Tried to attach pic of tools I used, but its probably over file size limit . Thought I was going to just see if I had the right tools tonight and might get to it tomorrow or Sunday. Next thing I knew, I was crawling on top of the engine in nice clothes. 20 minutes later the new sensor was in. The tools I found made it really easy with no cut knuckles. While the randomness of the time and apparel was a bit odd, there's nothing like driving a newly improved M3 on fairly empty streets at 12:30 in the morning.
