E46 B3s rocket cover gasket replacement?

Post by hap » Wed May 08, 2019 5:52 am

Hi mine has a small oil leak towards front of the engine I have read a lot of owners have changed theirs as it’s a common issue

Does anyone have correct part number for said gasket I don’t think it’s alpina specific pls? How long would the job take at an indi and finally is there anything else that needs checking or doing at the same time ?

Thanks

Hi Hap - same issue on mine.

The gasket isn't listed in the Alpina Parts Catalogue so it should be standard BMW. Reading the Parts Catalogue second page, the base engine is the S52 used in the US E36 M3 - a quick check on realoem shows: https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showpa ... Id=11_6149

The part no listed at the link is 11120034108 - common to E39's too. Hopefully someone will confirm - perhaps Charles or Simon?

Can't help on job duration

Any help?

Mike

Hi

I did mine a couple of years ago and went via BMW Sytner to ask the question. The part they said below was correct and fitted no issues within an hour by my mechanic.


Good afternoon

The part number for the rocker cover gasket is 11.12.0.034.108 and is a BMW part not ALPINA. You can order this with your local BMW dealer quoting this number. BMW UK has stock of these so standard lead time would be 48 hours Mon-Sat

Hope this helps

Its just a normal rocker gasket for a single vanos M50/M52 engine as fitted to any normal e36 e39 e38 or Z3

Part number given by the Dog man is correct.
