Lightbulb DIY: VANOS oil line replacement - Easiest way!

Hello Bimmerfest'ers!!

My brother's car had a terrible VANOS oil line leak... It was dripping one drop of oil every half a minute or so... So that needed replacement immediately. Bought the part (can't exactly remember how much $$ but wasn't terrible) and decided to replace it and took this video. Almost all DIY posts I came across called for removing the air intake box... You don't need to remove anything but one bolt. The whole process took less than 40 minutes! I hope you find this video helpful!

Happy motoring!
