..great, thank you. Is "bank2" driver-side or passenger-side?
and for curiosity which solenoid is for intake / exhaust?

BTW Just bought 03 W8 Wgn-tip last week, w101k miles, looks drives brand new, all recalls done, faithful 1-owner, now me....love the sound she makes.

Cheers - KD

Just to be clear given there are left and right hand drive cars. Bank 1 is on the left as you look at the engine from the front of the car.

Forgot to say the exhaust cams are on the outsides of both banks therefore its the two outside solenoids

For what it's worth:

I recently performed the 12V shock therapy and have not seen a CEL for any Cam related issue(just cooling malfunction, naturally....). I've decided to make it a part of my semi-monthly maintenance, just for, well, maintenance's sake.

Nice thread!

I'm planning to do this today to hopefully clear up my P0021 CEL.

Any tips on getting to the pigtails? They seem to be tough to get to. I know I'll need to pull the airbox to get at the ones on the RH side, but I'd be grateful for knowledge of anything that folks might have done to make the job a bit easier.

By the way, it seems that everyone who has done the shock treatment has been able to clear up the problem. Did anyone NOT fix their CELs with this method? Just wondering.

Hey guys

After much debate with the wife I was heading into mechanics in the morning to tell him to go ahead with the 8K quote to replace both variators... Sleepless night and googling got me to this... Thought too good to be true... Took iPad into mechanic and played him YouTube clip... 20 mins later. Problem fixed.

Damn I'm glad you guys shared your experiences here and that I couldn't sleep!
