    N47 oil leak.

    Not above the bellhousing!

    N47 oil leak.

    My E 61 520d, with the N47 engine seems to be leaking a bit of oil at the back of the engine somewhere above the bellhousing. I am going to clean it all off and see if I can spot the leak but I thought I would also ask, are there any well know areas for all leaks in this vicinity?

    E61 boot light.

    Thanks Syemondo, that's very useful. I will try changing that as well.

    E61 boot light.

    Sorry, only just noticed your post. I replaced the whole assembly located in the boot floor. It was a s/h unit, so it is possible it could be faulty too. I need to test the wiring but the weather hasn't been conducive and the boot is full of crap at the moment.

    E61 boot light.

    The earth for the boot light is actually shared with the blue wire in the connector plug, so need to look at whether there is an earth at this point on the other side of the connector.

    Fitted a used boot lock but this still doesn't seem to work. Going to take the original apart, as it looks like the earth is picked up from the lock casing, yet the lock is screw mounted into plastic plugs.

    I tested the wiring today and there is a + feed from the BCM, so the boot lock/switch does look like the culprit.

    Thank you. Looks like a boot lock switch problem then.

    The soft close does still work. I have just found used boot latches listed on e-bay and they have a connector with 3 contacts, so maybe 2 are for the soft close and 1 triggers the boot lights.

    Thought it might be. Wil try and pull it apart at the weekend and take a look.

    E61 boot light.

    The internal boot lights on my E61 do not work. I have checked the wiring by the hinges, I cant see any damage at all and all other lights/rear wiper etc. are fine. In order to test the wiring, does anyone know where the boot light switch is located?
