Replacing a Hydraulic Lash Adjuster

Hi guys,

Have looked (with no answer found) at all the previous posts for answer to the following:-

Is it possible to replace a Lash adjuster from the top by removing the circlip ? If so, what's the trick in removing the clip?

I've been battling a couple of noisy lifters and constantly removing the rocker assembly has got big knobs on it...

Cheers

Frankowitz

Re: Replacing a Hydraulic Lash Adjuster

... I guess you could remove it by drilling it to pieces or using similar distructive action but the rocker gear has to come off to put a new one in.

Lash adjusters

If you are refering to the E series I6 then the only way is the unbolt the rocker train. The lash adjuster just sits in the end of the rocker.

My advice is to replace the whole set. Once one goes the rest will likely be on their way as well. They are around $25 each.

Make sure you:-
1. Use some clean rag to block the oil holes on the LHS of the head (so nothing falls down into the engine).
2. Remove and retighted the bolts in correct order.
3. Have a good torgue wrench that is able to be set at 25Nm,
4. Make sure you dip the bolts in light oil before screwing them back in.
5. I wrap a piece of masking or insulation tape around the adjuster and rocker arm to stop the adjusters falling out during removal and installation of the rocker train.
6. Remove the bits of rag before putting the rocket cover back one.

Not a difficult job but allow a couple of hours.
