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.

If I were you, I would go to FCP Euro and look at pictures of the timing chain guide to verify what it is. If it is in fact the guide, I would not run the engine until you replace it. In the event that the timing chain jumps a few teeth, your engine is toast.
