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.

Mein Auto: 2005 745Li
Coolant Leak, Weeping Hole, Coolant Pipe issue/repair - BMW NA needs to recall/fix

New here to bimmerfest.

I have search the web and read several threads on this and just wanted to make a thread to get word out there and try to rally owners and make BMW NA aware of this major issue and get BMW NA to do a recall/repair.

Different names used for this issue: Weeping hole, coolant leak, coolant pipe

BMW part# for seal and water pipe: 11141439975

I am having the issue for my 05 745li. Im trying to fight it with my warranty company to pay for the repair and i just opened a case with BMW NA.

Not sure has anyone that has open a case with BMW NA hear any updates on this issue?

-by the way, i spoke to the rep at BMW NA and the rep told me if enough owners call up BMW NA it might start a recall/fix.-

so owners please call up BMW NA and open a case and complain to the "resolution reps/supervisors."

BMW NA - 1800-831-1117

just call up and give them your information and open a case and state that you have the issue with the leak / damage water pipe. you can give them the part # also.
