    Default Replacing Camshaft Position Sensor - 1999 528i

    my OBDII is report error code P1397, which according to my research is a
    Camshaft Position Sensor B (exhaust) fault. Are there any online instructions
    on how to change this? The only one I found was for the E62 engine, not the
    E52. Also, opinions gladly welcomed:

    -Should I change both sensors (intake and exhaust) since I'll have everything
    apart?

    - Any idea what the dealer is charging to replace the sensor?

    Here's one in French (really you just need the pics):

    One for the Vanos filter:

    I recommend looking at the Technique section. Even if you don't know French,
    the documentation really is good.
