M5 Russ

The M5 Sailed through the MOT but time to address a couple of probs.

Recommended Posts

So the M5 sailed through the MOT but its time to tackle a few jobs that I have been putting off. First up the diff has started leaking again so I am having that resealed and secondly the big one. One of the rocker covers has been leaking for a while so I am getting both replaced. I thought about doing this myself but ultimately have gave the job to my garage to do.


Its not a cheap job but coupled with the new alloys I have ordered, its one that had to be done. Then its a bit of paint work than Bobs your uncle :)

Is it the filler side "leaking"?

If so you sure its not minor spills when topping up.

Ive noticed the slightest dribbles seem to spread.

I am going to be cleaning my bay and then making sure i top up with a funnel to see for sure on mine but all points toward spill?

Great news on mot but tbh why wouldnt they pass?

(Really hopes mine doesnt let me down lol)

No its definitely the rocker cover leaking onto the exhaust manifolds when under load. Its pretty common on M5's and I have been putting it off for a few months. There is always something silly come MOT time but my garage is superb.
