Oil filter parts ??? not identified
 
1 Attachment(s)
I was changing my oil on my N62 X5 engine. when I took the filter down, two prats came down with it that dont belong to the filter. I looked at the TKM diagrams but I could not see where these parts belong to. does anyone know where these parts could have come from? could it be from the oil pump? I have attached the picture. can anyone one help. Thanks

Good day,

Without actually taking my oil filter canister apart, I can't be positive, but I believe it is an anti-flow back valve or flow regulation valve of some kind that sits in the bottom of the filter canister... My X5 is actually due for an oil change soon... I will take some pictures when I do... This isn't the first time I have seen this issue...

Cheers!!

. Actually when I chnaged the oil last time. I did not see these parts in the canister. This time when I was inscrewing the canister and before I took the canister off, once I pulled it down, the parts came down with it . They were resting in top of the element. So they were not in the canister .

AAAhhh.. My fault... Kinda... It might be the same item I am thinking about but I didn't pull up an 04, which is different than my 01... Yours is flipped over so the filter comes out the bottom unlike mine that has a cap and filter lifts out of the canister... Did you happen to see a small spring in there too? You may not since yours might be pressure operated... I can pull my filter without draining my oil and see what I see... I'll post pics after Church...

Cheers!!

Have a blessed Sunday all!!

well, i put the filter back in and filled the crankcase with oil ans started it, did not feel anything different. so i am going to keep on driving it until i feel a difference. thank you for your input and feedback.

I believe that is a check valve or pressure valve. yes you do need it installed. I had one come out in one om my cars about 20 years ago. I just stuck it back in the hole it came out of and was good to go. However it wasnt a BMW.

me too!
 
I ran into this too. Does anyone know where these parts actually go? I took the filter housing off, and looked carefully, and I don't see anyplace they'd attach.

Also, do I have to put them back, or can it wait until next oil change? (I don't want to have to replace another $75 worth od synthetic oil.)

I have a 2005 X5. The filter housing comes off underneath the vehicle.

thanks,

That just fell out on me too. The non-return valve of the engine oil pump's cap.

Go to Bimmerfest under heading "X5 4.8is noisy at cold start and odd part in filter." There are a few posts, including mine, that will explain it all to you. Good luck.

same is going on on my x5 4.8 when cold start i hear noise like on top for 4 or 5 min only sine all oil went down from the top it takes a little time before oil will go back up and thats when the noise goes away , for now i did add Liqui Moly 3721 Cera Tec Friction Modifier Engine Oil Additive to protect the cold and dry start so far no noise when cold start but still will have to change oil pump with good return valve that stops oil drin back down when off
