My Ride: 2003 325xi wagon
I'm really starting to dislike the prior owner of this car... So I pulled the flex plate today. PO clearly replaced the RMS. Looks like the RMS is in great shape, but he got a poor seal at the carrier to oil pan joint. I think I'm going to retorque the carrier bolts and forward oil plan bolts, and put it back together as is. I'm really nervous that I'll make things worse by damaging the pan gasket while pulling out the carrier. The pan leaks on the right side in spots too, so maybe dropping the pan and replacing the gasket will happen down the road.
thanks again,
Dave
PS Sorry for the rotated picture, I can't get it to stay un-rotated.
