I wounder if anyone could tell me were the airfilter is on me x3 as i have had the black engine cover off and still can not locate it if anyone tell me were it is and how to remove it please.
With the engine cover removed you will see the intake pipe on the left hand side of the engine bay as you look at it. It is connected to a plastic housing which is parallel to the injector rail, bolted to the rocker cover with five 5mm allen key headed bolts. Remove these and the air filter lives inside.
While your at it, just below it is an oil seperator, these play up sometimes so it would be worth changing that aswell whilst your in there! Regards,
Thank you very mutch mate ill look into that, every other car i have had ive serviced my self but these bimmers are a diffrent class, when you say there is a oil seperator just below wot does it look like???
