X6 M 50d 2013 oil cap wrench size?
« on: December 30, 2016, 03:23:24 PM »
Hi, being a good BM owner just purchased the above car, I want to change the oil every 6k. Would anybody know the correct cup filter wrench size, I.e 86mm x 14 flutes etc. Thanks!

Have a look under the bonnet and use a ruler.....they are normally a lot smaller than that and use an internal cartridge rather than a metal can.

Look for a black plastic dome on the right side of the engine with a hex nut design on top.

Oil is probably Castro Edge FST Pro 0W-30 or 5W-30.  About £120 per diy change unless you get the oil on a deal.  Filter extra.  Needs two 4-litre containers.

Look at Realoem and use the last 7 characters of your VIN (as 'Serial Number') for part numbers.  Parts available from Eurocarparts and genuine before being rebadged.

Send PM to cotswoldbmwmini for genuine as they are a Dealer on the Forum and give discounts.

Thanks for the reply, realoem shows hex type filter housing like e46 330cd, the actual filter housing is a cap filter like a very golf mk4. I'll have to measure and count the flutes.
