I have exactly the same problem. The grommet seal that interfaces the front washer pump and the washer tank is allowing water to leak out, especially when I use the pump to wash the front window. I don't like the small leak because it spills water on the heat resistant foil cover and exhaust manifold. This indicates that the grommet only has a 5-6 year lifespan in e53 x5's. I am going to use a plumbers lubricant to seal the grommet temporarily until next service.
