United-States Need help with engine codes P0014, P0015

Hi,
I have 07 Mini Cooper (R56).
In the past year or so car was gradually loosing power. Check engine was on and off. In the past few month engine became very weak.
We took the head cover off and discovered that timing was off.
We changed timing tentioner, timing chain and aligned timing.
Car drives like a dream now and has lots of power. BUT i still have P0014 and P0015 codes

Any ideas?

Not sure if you have the lookup for the codes
per Bentley Manual:

P0014 - 'B' Camshaft Position Timing Over-Advanced or System Performance (Bank 1)
P0015 = 'B' Camshaft Position Timing Over-Retarded (Bank 1)
or Vanos exhaust: Closed loop control fault - camshaft sticks or position not reached

maybe that helps point you in the right direction.

Did you clear the codes after fixing the timing stuff? Did they come back on, or have they just been on all the time?

If you fix the problem then clear the codes, they shouldn't come back unless there's something else wrong.
If you haven't cleared them, they may stay on indefinitely until you do even if the problem is fixed.

yes, we cleared the codes after the installation. Codes come back each time after the start. If i reset the code and don't shut the engine, codes won't come back until i restart the car again.

Does anyone have a good manual on how set the timing? I'm thinking we were off by 1 tooth or so?
We don't have the special timing tool, but we locked the crankshaft with the pin and set the camshaft just like it should be with the camshaft locking fixture.
How can we check if timing is as it should be?

Bentley on page 117.12 shows the angle of cam 1 intake and exhaust lobes when piston 1 is at tdc.
TBH, I thought they'd give a more precise picture than they do.

1st pic exhaust 1 points right (inward) and down
2nd pic intake 1 point left (inward) and up

I recommend you look at the Peugeot video on the correct timing procedure. In the first part, they show you how to measure the timing angle accurately. They state you can deviate +-2 deg from the ideal position...

I'm having a similar issue. Started with both P0014 and P0015 codes, replaced both cam sensors and the P0015 went away. 14 code has been coming and going even replaced the crank position sensor. Tonight a whole new problem started. Coded P0014, 15 and P0017 then went into severe limp mode. Pulled over and swapped the cam sensors around and started rough and as I drove had next to no power and had to pull over. Swapped the sensors back but it just doesn't want to start now. Non of the BMW dealers will touch Mini's on the Illinois side of the river and refer everyone to Mini of St Louis. I have an 2007 base with the N12 and Mini's service is way over priced. Any suggestions on where to start solving the problem would be great.

Go over to NAM and ask for recommendations for independent mechanics in your area.
