Cam solenoid replacement

Hi all,

I seem to have a oil leak that is coming from a cam solenoid and the garage I bought it from are taking their sweet time in doing anything about it, so I figured I'd do it myself, just wondering if anyone has changed one before and if it was particularly taxing, it seems to be a straight in and out job but any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

I changed a couple of mine after the plugs got smashed.

It's a super easy job litterally just 2 bolts, an eletrical plug and swapping it over, the only advice i would give is putting a bit of oil on the o-rings to make sure they dont get snagged, one of mine did after replacement and it leaked a tiny bit of oil from the area where it got pinched.
