Vanos Piston Cover Bolt WASHERS...

These are the large (Inch in diameter) hex bolts that cover the Vanos pistons (just under the valve cover).
Each one has an aluminum washer. Do they NEED to be replaced during the Vanos seal replacement???

I got pretty much everything to do the job but I do not have those washers. I checked the Beisan website and they don't say anything about replacing those washers.

So use the same washers?

Just re-use the washers, they do not need to be replaced.
