Has anyone ever cleaned M52tu or M54 Vanos Solenoids?

Just curious. I've been browsing the other boards and find that apparently folks are cleaning the solenoids on other engines. Is that possible on our older E39's?

Yeah, I'm not so certain that is true. If I remember correctly, the M52 (assuming he meant M52tu) was discontinued and replaced outright with the M54 in 2000 or 2001?

I don't think there was a 528 and a 530 E39 in the same year. A 528 has an M52 (or M52tu from 99 on) and a 530 had an M54. Take the 530, sell the 528.
