: Catera EBTCM Removal: Where are the wave springs???

12-26-10, 01:18 PM
I took my EBTCM out of my Catera the other day. When I separated the EBTCM from the BPMV, I did not see any wave springs. Where are the wave springs located??? and do I need them?

I found it easiest to take the two nuts off either side of the BPMV, that way I was able to pull the unit up a little bit to get to the middle screws. The bottom ones took a combination of extensions.

Also, here is a link to a company that rebuilds these for $50 on ebay. I am sending mine out tomorrow.
