Default removing carbon buildup manually - 21st March 2015, 12:30 PM

Is there a guide on how to removing carbon manually from the valves and everything that has carbon buildup in the R56 engine? When i say manually i mean without using a carbon blaster machine or sea foam or whatever, but to open up the engine and clean it all up!

I guess to manually do it, it's basically a top end rebuild or am I wrong?

If you were to manually clean the valves, you'd need to remove the head from the engine and then the valves to clean them.

Do yourself a favour. Pay the money and have it done professionally. The walnut decoke is priced reasonable, even at a main dealers. You get a garantee and if anything gets broken (hoses, electrical connectors etc) they will be replaced.

True but is the decoke process limited to certain countries? Mini is a worldwide brand - surely there will be something in place.
