14 and 10
But left and right is different ( #10 ) so it’s 3 different pieces total. 14, 10 and ? Does that make sense?

Now that I go back to your original picture I see that 15 is pretty crumbled in the center area. I’ve actually never replaced 15 and never seen it damaged so I’m unsure what’s involved.
Plenty of people here have TIS access which I strongly recommend for you. Maybe someone will post repair instructions for that piece

A local independent BMW mechanic ought to be able to piece that area back together for a better price.

Looks like both #10's, 14 & 15 plus all the pushpins, screws and bolts.

Have you had an indy quote the work? It would be trivial for them to pick out the necessary parts and order.

The diagram shows #10 but there is a left 10 and a right 10... kinda odd.

1033711


There are cheap ones on amazon...OE bmw ones are kinda nuts. (when I did mine a few years ago they were 1/2 what they cost now.)

hotrgbg's list of numbers looked accurate to me.

and OP...if you order the wrong parts (you wont) you can THROW THEM OUT and reorder the right ones- Two or three times- and still be way ahead!

Pretty high prices. These are jobs I would want done professionally but I’d call other dealers. You could go to an Indy shop but be SUPER choosy on who does these repairs. I’d make sure that Indy was legit with BMWs

Q: are there two coolant pumps on that car? Or does the 'leaking onto the belt' tell us which?

My gut is saying these prices are double market prices.

Do you need help finding a shop?

Did I miss something? WHY? are all these parts missing??? you will be surprised at how much BMW plastic costs...you would think it was made out of GOLD!
It is semi-custom made, contrasted with aftermarket custom made, and designed by world renowned engineers.

What about the pricing for the water pump and leaking turbo lines
The mechanical water pump weep hole is designed to SURPRISE SURPRISE weep.

All mechanical centrifugical pumps shaft seal packing is cooled and lubricated by pumped fluid weeping. Third generation BMW mechanical WP have a collection chamber intended to steam away the collected weepage. The replacement criterion is visible liquid during normal operation - indication that the weepage exceeds the phase change energy to steam.

The distal wall of the chamber serves to stiffen the bearing supporting the shaft.

They are dripping you off.

1700 for the patricians is insanity.
they are pricey but not 1700 pricey. Any idiot can replace these. It takes 10 minutes.
51717169419
51717169420
51717169421

the prices overall seem expensive even for a dealership. Are you in California? That would help explain
Bought all 3 parts on eBay for $40:
MotorFansClub Engine Upper Compartment Partition Panel Fit For BMW X5 E70 X6 E71 | eBay
There are dozens of other sellers.
The parts fit well and seem to be good quality. Some original foam parts needed to be reused and some generic weatherstripping foam added.
2 mounting holes were missing, and needed to be drilled.

This $90 set includes the small outside partitions and all the foam bits:
51717169419 Engine compartment upper partition super fast delivery | eBay
(note seller in Russia)
One of my small partitions needs to be replaced, so I wish I had bought a 5 part kit.

I bought an aftermarket set on Amazon. Worked great! $1,700?
I'm in the wrong business.

To OP, being that O'Reilly is an independent Euro car specialist and not the dealer, I would do some asking for details before concluding that their quote is ridiculous:

1. Partition is missing - You are missing MUCH more than just the 3 pieces to the partition. Get a detailed list of parts for that quote and a breakdown of what each part costs. I think you'll find the $1700 quote not as outrageous as it seems. Don't forget the two braces as well as the air intake assembly. You can always try to buy these cheap knockoff parts from Asia. To each their own.
2. Turbo coolant lines - Get the detail of what parts they are changing out. Price probably includes a coolant flush as well. You can get a second opinion of cost but before you do you need to make sure it's apples to apples which will be difficult to do without knowing what parts are being replaced.
3. Water pump - I think that quote is reasonable but they should be able to charge you less as there is no air intake assembly to remove and replace. You also have an aux water pump and should see if that is part of the quote. While they have the serpentine belt out it's probably a good time to replace that as well.
4. Engine and cabin air filter - Change them yourself. Since you don't have to remove the missing parts it's real easy. PM me and I'll tell you how. You have to remove and reinstall the missing pieces to get at the engine air filters (there's two) so the $319 cost is not unreasonable. It's labor intensive
5. Transmission service - Price quoted is reasonable. I paid a little more to my indy BMW shop but also changed out the mechatronic sleeve.
6. Diff and Transfer Case Fluid - Prices quoted are reasonable.

Someone posted to make sure an experienced shop handled the water pump and turbo coolant lines. I second that as well add to that the transmission service. Easy to underfill which will cause other issues.

lol. Thats funny.

(its 319 for one air filter, 129 for the other...)


BUT.... I lost track of this thread...OPs issue isnt just the three partitions we have been focussed on. Lots of missing parts as I re-read and looked back over the thread from the beginning. Without having eyes on, it is hard to know what is actually missing.

This thread is PRECISELY why you get a pre-purchase inspection.... OP has gotten unbelieveably hosed on this deal, with what $8k more in repairs? And none of that touches the CAT stuff... sad

I guess the question is can I find a better X5 50i. I paid 16k before tax for this with 93k miles. Interior excellent condition and exterior in good condition. I would assume almost all 2012 x5 50i would have some issues at this mileage

Ard, I wonder if you've actually replaced the engine air filters on the 2012 5.0i. Well, I have and there is a reason a shop will charge you 2 hours labor. The MSRP on the BMW charcoal cabin air filter is $129. There are two filters. O'Reilly doesn't appear to be charging extra labor for installing the cabin air filter as that whole assembly as well as the engine partitions and engine braces have to come off to get access to the engine air filter box. These are some of the parts OP is missing.
