In the entire E39 search, I couldn't find a specification for just the green O-ring that everyone says fails ... but searching outside the E39 cars, I do find the E46 guys have been active in finding replacements for the $1 O-ring (either made of Viton or Buna N material).

I opened an E39 thread specifically asking someone to MEASURE their new coolant temperature sensor O-ring ... and I'll add the part number I found to the post above for recommended parts for a cooling system overhaul.

I think the O-ring part number is: 13.62.1.743.299
