Oil pan sealant
« on: July 21, 2019, 01:37:35 PM »
Has anyone had to resettle the oil pan seals.

I caught the bottom of the oil pan but not cracks, I bought some new bolts and oil. The sealant they use was expensive.

No, but I did use the BMW Dow-Corning 3-0115 Automotive Sealant to reseal the crank cover when I installed a Woodcraft integral slider. It was a very thick and sticky type of RTV. I cleaned the surface very carefully of old sealant, applied a very thin bead with the applicator and smoothed it over with my finger. I immediately installed the woodcraft slider and torqued it down even. The seal looks OEM and has zero leaks. Very good sealing product in my opinion, and I have used LOTS of different ones. This stuff is pretty similar to Toyota FIPG. I would say spend the $40 bucks on the tube of BMW sealant and you won't have to concern yourself any further.

BMW Part # is 07 580 397 777 if you want to get it from your dealer.
