Radiator drain Plug E90

I resolve my problem . When you remove the drain plug , (blue) you need to secure with 3/4 wrench the other part . Because the other part have 2 plastic tooth . Did you turn around this part , you broke the safety tooth , and you have the problem of leak .

^^^ Good Job. And when inserting a new drain tube (the black unit) listen for the click(s) as you turn it clockwise. That is when you know it "locked' Be glad you don't have the N54 or you would be removing and installing the Inter-Cooler too.

My sleeve broke on me last week. I bought a new one, inserted, turned it and it also broke. So what is the correct technique to install this thing? New part on order....
