BMW F10 530d N57 – Oil Sensor Gasket Replacement

I am on a mission to sort out all possible oil leaks on my BMW N57 engine.

Hi, I am Bogdan and I invite you to take a look at how you can replace the BMW N57 Engine Oil Level Sensor Gasket 12611744292.

What are the symptoms of a problematic oil sensor seal?

  • loss of oil
  • can give the impression that the oil sensor or sump gasket are leaking

Why does the BMW N57 Oil Gaskets fail?

  • rubber parts tend fail the older they get
  • cold/hot/cold cycles contribute to the rubber loosing its properties
  • the rubber gets plastichy

What parts, tools, products did we use?
