From the electrical connector. It was actually diagnosed by BMW the 1st time it was in. It was a Whaler although I had ordered a Behr. Bav sent me a Behr replacement though. I've heard that spot is a weak point for both brands with the Whalers more commonly leaking there.

That's pretty lame. Good thing it was covered under warranty.

I know right? My typical flailing...i forgot my water and coolant at home Had to borrow some from Drew and pick up some water. Aside from that everything went smoothly. My fan clutch is hooking up a lot better.

That's the second part that's gone bad from Bav btw. My ET cap was bad too. It didn't seal right. They refunded my money for that after I found it leaking.
