Mein Auto: 2006 X3
Just FYI on my experience with this. My wife's 2006 X3 washer fluid leaked out within a week of being filled and i noticed the leaking coming from the pump closest to the engine which feeds the windshield sprayers. I ordered a new OEM pump and grommet/strainer and replaced easily in 15 minutes, parts were about $35. Here is a little guide i put together on the process, hope it helps someone as this problem seem pretty prevalent in these cars. In fact I just looked at my aunt's 2008 X3 and saw minor leaking from one of the pumps in that as well. Pretty unbelievable that these pumps are such crap but it is what it is and at least the fix is easy.

Good Luck, hope it helps save you some $$$.
