E61 535d soot around actuator

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, 

 

i serviced my 09 535d today and noticed some soot around the large actuator arm. have noticed it before but seems a bit worse. Car seems to drive and pull well. 

 

Does anyone else suffer with this and did you do anything about it? 

 

Thanks in advance.

When I took mine in for a refurb I expected them to offer a resleeve service for this but they said they become a bit loose and no longer perfectly seal (also don't offer this sort of service anywhere)

 

Probably more to do with DPF backpressure?

Thanks for the reply. 

 

Yes i I also wondered if it was to do with dpf back pressure although my pressure readings are well within spec.

 

how bad is the leak on yours? 

 

I remember when when I was looking at 535s seeing a few with this issue so must be fairly common?

 

cheers
