Mein Auto: 2007 X5 4.8i Saphire
oil leak can i replace alternator mountain bracket gasket myself?


has anybody replaced their own alternator mountain bracket gasket. I think that's what is called. My X5 4.8i is leaking oil bad. I have heard its around 1500 to 2200 for a repair shop to fix it and that's to much right now. I am trying to see if this is doable. My husband has been watching you tube videos and some say yes but its time consuming others say don't bother. The part is 5 bucks. I just cant see myself paying all this money for a $ 5 dollar part.
