Go for it man! I did it and it felt good not to pay 4000 and only 139 for the chain.

I've just read this trhead from start to finish, big thumbs up for all the detail and pics !

I'm expecting my gearbox to fail sometime, when that happens I guess I may as well do the transfer chain at the same time.

Exhaust manifold gasket needs replacement!

Although! you made me smile by knowing that the job isn't hard at all. Also, I wanna ask you what do you think about the (Exhaust manifold gaskets on the side and the other one that connect the muffler pipe through the manifold near the front oxygen sensors. Are they all the same??? Otherwise I cannot locate or identify the ones that joint the muffler to the exhaust manifold.

Any help or pic would be appreciate!
Thanks

Exhaust manifold gasket needs replacement!

Hey guys!
Here's what I'm looking for to replace under my car, because I just found out there's leak there from the exhaust gasket area. And when I look under the car, 1 bolt seems completely missing on each side of the muffler pipe just after the oxygen sensors. I'm referring exactly to #2 on the diagram. see picture below...

Unfortunately this gasket seems to be difficult to find because I cannot locate it anywhere on any diagram. I don't know if I should use maybe #4 to just cut it in the middle and make one for each side, also wonder if it's gonna fit properly I'm not so sure. Number#2 attach to number#6 on each side, and there's a gasket in the middle which is difficult to be found. However this gasket picture above is for the X5 3.i and did not specify my car under the list which is a 4.4i M62.
