For my v8 friends.

I found these, and they complement each other. It's best if someone could pdf them and save them on safe site, so they don't get lost. I hope "Jeff" is OK with this.

Good luck for those of you who are attempting this.
"Jeff" has also sticky notes on both where extra caution is needed.

Thanks for posting this. Good idea to save these documents on one's own computer.

Thanks Doru. I know it's only a matter of time before I'll need to refer to them. So I saved them to my growing "BMW info" folder, as edjack suggested.

Great write-up. I just replaced my CCV and now have more smoke than I ever did before. I've been told it's my oil seperator so I am going to give this procedure a try. Also, while I'm at it I am going to change the guides. Is there anything else you can suggest I do while I'm in there. Also, is there any way you could help me out with a list of the tools I will need. I am a DIYer and know this is going to be a huge undertaking and more than likely way out of my league but I think with your help and this thread I can do it. Is timing necessary when performing this procedure?
Thank You very much

I added a pointer in the tandem-jobs thread over to Doru's post for future use so that we can be both consistent and complete when someone asks:
