Hi all

Just got back from the indy who advised that the "Coolant outlet housing" is leaking and will need to be replaced. This is at the back of the engine.

Unfortunately they are going to source aftermarket parts.

Anyone knows what exactly this entails so I can go to BMW and get the parts myself? The indy can then fit it for me.

Thanks

You can look up the part number on RealOEM but if this was the N13B16 engine then there is a very good chance that it is only the O-ring on the temperature sensor that is the problem. This avoids the need to remove all the plumbing associated with the rear cover. It is held in by plastic tabs that need to be compressed from memory, and you can order a single O-ring. That said it is not a trivial job to access but if you have a look with mirrors or an endoscope you should be able to see it. There are many YouTube videos on the subject. I wouldn't necessarily be too upset with aftermarket parts, the originals are not exactly first rate.
