E82 / E87 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by a naturaly aspirated inline 6 in the 128 or the turbo twin power inline 6 rocket sled 135.

Lightbulb PCV Replacement Issue

Hi All,

I recently purchased an E87 1 Series and knew going in that they are notorious for oil leaks The Vac pump and rocker sensor were leaking so I repaired those with new seals and Drei Bond as per BMWs recommendations. I now have 1 leak left which I would have thought was simple to repair (oil leaking out of the oil cap), no problem about getting a new cap but I want to replace the PCV valve just in case it has been the cause of oil the leaks.

Long story short I rang BMW for a part number/price and was told the LCI E87 has the PCV inside the rocker cover. I understand the system is different to the 2006-08 model but it makes no sense that it is a non replaceable part, I was of the understanding it is located under the manifold and can be replaced?

I was hoping someone here could advise if this is correct and would be so kind to provide me with a part number so i can use that to deal with the parts department and hopefuly get the part

Any help is greatly appreciated!
