'15 328DX oil drain access cover

I'm looking for the part number and price for the above item. I'll even order if its available and not the price of a vital organ.

Thanks. I'm browsing now. Have any suggestions on the name of the undercarriage piece that sits under the engine to protect from road debris? This little access cover that I'm trying to locate attaches to that. I figured if I can get a diagram of the corresponding parts, I can locate the access cover.

US cars didn't get a cover that covers the oil drain plug on the under-body shielding.

Well, there is definitely a cover on mine. It didn't quite fit into position after the last oil change and it's now loose under the car, trapped from falling to the ground by the under-body shielding. I figured I would purchase a new one as the little flap in the middle of the access cover slipped out the hole and ripped off.

Maybe I'm mis-interpreting the part you're referring to.

I was referring to part #27 in the below diagram on the metal plate.


On the soft underbody shielding though there's also part 13, which is 51717376341.

I was referring to 328dxs since that's what the discussion is about. Next time I'll write "US 328dxs didn't get them."

Ackchyually, 328 diesels were sold only in the US, so you could just say "328dxs didn't get them."



























I'll stop now...

OE is Original Equipment aka 'BMW Original Parts' aka 'What you buy at the BMW dealer with a BMW label'

OEM is Original Equipment Manufacturer... EITHER the company that made the OE part or.... A part this is identical to the OE part, but is sold by the OEM under their own label


OEM is not what BMW sells
