Hello to everybody, yesterday I was changing the oil pan gasket on my e60 550i and I found this piece of timing chain guide on the bottom, the piece it's really really small, does anyone know where the piece actually came from, like which exact part of the guide? I would leave some pictures for you to see. Besides that, the engine runs flawlessly.

...I would take the risk and don't do the timing on the short time...
What @tstiglich said. An engine with broken chain guides is not safe to run, unless it's a non-interference engine (which the n62 is very probably not).
