M62 exhaust downpipe gasket

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

 

Can anyone with an m62 engine car tell me if there is supposed to be a gasket between the exhaust manifold and downpipe? 

 

Most cars have a wire gasket that goes on the tapered manifold part, I'm certain I haven't lost them and I can't find any reference on realoem, I'm just surprised bmw seem to rely on a tapered fit being gas tight, if that is the case I'll just use a smear of exhaust paste on them. 

 

Thanks

Chris

They look like the sort of thing but again there not listed for an e53.

 

I used exhaust paste in the end and it seems to do the job 

 

Thanks

Chris
