Did not have much time lately to work on the Touring,but this weekend my wife and me assebled the interior(only front seat assembling/installation and instrument cluster missing).
Burnout_187 started yesterday to remove the intake manifold as we wanted to take the head off.
Bad news is,it was AGAIN full of water,so no surprise it hydro locked.

I decided to remove in the next few days the engine and give it a rebuild.

The water also destroyed the idle control valve and the throttle body assembly,new stuff along with CPS,MAF,cold climate CCV is on order.
Everything regarding the electronics is working,the central locking issue was dead lock actuators,so all door actuators replaced,trunk and filler flap actuator are ordered.

A few pics of the progress:

Have the instrument cluster next to me and replace the broken LCD display with a new one this evening.

Small update.

Got today around to disassemble the rest of the engine.


Looks a bit rough,though:




Bare block:



Gotta finish the honing of the bores tomorrow to start assembly

Also disassemble the head tomorrow,needs a bit work it seems as well:




Slightly bent rod:

Crank is back in,with the old main bearing bolts as the new ones did not arrive yet and I need to get stuff out the way.

We pull tomorrow an S62 for rebuild out,so I need space...



My wife cleaned the crank and pistons/rods today while I was assembling the block and some other bits
