Hi All,
I need some help. I have been having a minor oil leak for a while now. Since it was minor I was waiting for the next oil service due date to have it checked.
The dealership said oil was leaking from the valve cover gasket and vacuum pump. They are suggesting to change both the right and left gasket as well as the whole vacuum pump. I asked if only the seals of the vacuum pump can be done he said yes but after 3 months it would start leaking again. He also said it is better to have the pump replaced due to wear and tear.
Was wondering if I should replace the whole pump and if I should get both the gaskets changed.
Thanks for all your inputs.
Regards

You don't need pump. Get BOTH seals. There's only 1 website that sells both. BMW only sells 1 of the two seals that leak.

Bmp design sells the vacuum pump seal kit
