E87 n45 2007 116i *Solenoid gouged*

Post by Bodyshop Mitch » Sun May 05, 2019 8:35 pm

Hi guys.

I have had an EML on but the car runs fine. Took both solenoids out today and the bottom one has two gouges in it from what I guess is the timing chain?

Does anybody know what could have caused this? The actual timing chain looks up damaged from what I can see.

Any help would be appreciated.
