? Intermittent Oil Leak Issue in 2011 X 3
My 2011 X3 is leaking oil [looks pinkish to me] from under the driver's seat area. It seems to happen once every 4 to 6 weeks or so. It just started a couple of months ago. When I took it to the dealer they checked and said there is nothing wrong. Brought it back and 2 to 3 weeks later it happened again. This time I took pictures of the leak and showed it to them. Still they called me back and said there is no leak and everything is dry!!!

Any one else have such issues? Any suggestions?

Oil shouldn't be pinkish so are you sure it is that? Maybe its antifreeze or washer fluid? Do you have a pic you can post?

It is kinda reddish blackish I guess. I brought the car back from the dealer. He says he still can not find anything. This time I dabbed the oil slick on a tissue and took it with me. He agreed it was oil but did not know where it was coming from. His suggestion is if it happens again [will be the 4th time] then to bring it back right away. He will take the plate down and look inside. This time they looked on the outside and just put the fingers on the side and there was no oil!!!

Hope they get it sorted out for you. Knock on wood, to date, my has not had any leaks. I also have a 2011.
