09 750 Whine

It seems to be general knowledge that this is an oil pump, but local dealer won't fix, waiting for the regional bmw tech "expert" from LA to confirm/assess. What's the deal on this? Are there Bay Area or Socal dealers who can do this fix without a fuss? It's been 5 months and I'm still waiting for the guy from LA to show up. Any ideas how to get this fixed?

Thanks
Richard

My dealer, where I bought my 2010 750i fixed my oil pump whine. They have my documentation, and did several others. Try Bob Smith BMW in Calabasas. I LOVE them there!! My SA was Lamarr Franklin, but he sadly, sadly left! I now use Katherine Hodack, and she is also very, very good!!! Good Luck. I remember my oil whine, and it was dreadful!!!!

whine

And they did the whole thing without argument, hemming and hawing, etc? Mine's a CPO which shouldn't (they say) make a difference in getting repairs done, but I get the sense that somebody's trying to save a buck.

I know it's hard to describe, but how loud was yours?

At first they tried (as many dealers did) to say it was the twin turbo system & the engine is so powerful, highly compressed, etc, etc.. I went back 2 more times, and was friendly, but VERY firm with the Service Mgr and my SA. I've also purchased about 5-6 new BMWs from them since 2009, and I've sent 4 people there, that also have purchased 4 BMWs (CPO and new).

Mine was most noticed from a stop, to about 30 mph. It was a very high, pitched whine, and I KNEW right away somethin was wrong. There is 100% a Service Bulletin about this known issue, for over TWO years. Good Luck

I have a very quiet high pitched noise from time to time. It's actually more like whistling sound. Very light. First I thought it's coming fromthe A/C but it's there even with the blower completely off.

Assming it's the same whining you mean -
So what is actually the fix, how big of a job is it, do they replace the oil pump and how much has to be taken apart for this?
Do you happen to have a copy of this Service Bulletin?

And if it's something else..I duno.
