finally oil leak on oil filter housing gasket

2014 528i xdrive 50000mi. There is small amount of oil leak around the gasket. The car still has CPO warranty and I made an appointment. I guess this is typical BMW issue.

Obviously at the time of another 50000 mile, I have to change them by myself but looks like not easy to get out one bolt under the intake manifold.

I've heard good things about NOT using BMW OEM or even any German gaskets when you get around to doing this DIY or having a 3rd party do the job.

When CPO is over, the DIY job is not hard, just time consuming being that the intake manifold needs to shift a few mm over to get that last housing bolt.

Remove the coolant pipe, it will give you enough space to take out the screw. Before you do so, put some towels or old t shirt to catch coolant. There are youtube videos to show you how to DIY.

It is a common issue and BMW to leave it without solution will eventually bite them with decreased fame and sales.
