Eccentric nut stripped

Did valve job today and one of the eccentric nuts wouldn't tighten properly and just continued to turn. How do I replace it? At s certain point it no longer tightens or loosens. So I'm unable to take it loosen it completely if that's how it's usually removed.

go to yer BMW dealer - parts same for M10, M30, M20 motors

they will have special screw and nut in stock

and double check all the rest also for past over tightening

which is what caused this

the threaded portion may have snapped- and with a pull with needle nose

plyers it may gome apart - otherwise DREMEL is your friend

pack rags around insision to catch metal filings

4 clams from bavauto also :

As others said, pull hard with a good set of vise grips (real vise grip ones, the chinese knock offs don't work worth a damn). Also, although we appreciate the tribute to nbristow, try to confine questions regarding a similar repair to one thread instead of three concerning the same valve adjustment.
