Default Video: VANOS filter replacement DIY

I figured since there was some slight confusion over this topic, I could spend a few minutes and put together a quick DIY based off of Tonester's original thread

Thanks for taking the time to do that DIY video. Much simplier then I had thought.

When you took the old filter out with the pliers, did you just pull away from nut?

Also, your engine is uber clean, nice!

Awesome man, great video! The only reason i haven't done this yet, is because i wasn't sure if there was a proper tightening torque for the unit!

Someone should get Tonester to add this to his DIY and give credit to cncmastr.

Yes, just use the pliers to grab the old filter and pull away.

You see, there is a lip on the main unit for lack of a better term.

do you think it would be a wise idea to thoroughly wash the old filter and just replace? Its more of a 'strainer' either way, so it should be re-usable.

The filter costs $4 and change with the BMWCCA discount. Plus the old one gets destroyed when you pull it off. I think for the price, its okay to not worry about keeping the old one.
