7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

Alternator Bracket for Generator Housing oil Leak- PROBLEM SOLVED

After doing research on here I think I am having a leak on the so called Alternator bracket gasket. See color picture below. The other schematic (black and white) shows the most likely culprit for the origination of the oil leak. Item #2- rubber gasket. The good thing is that it is a $3 part but I heard that it is a 7-8 hour job to get to it. Could someone please confirm with my picture it is indeed the alternator gasket. Also, I was unable to get a DIY write up on how to approach this task. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
