e39 radiator drain plug/hose leaking
e39 540i experts: Need your help.
I drained the coolant from the engine block (2 bolts) and the radiator last night, but I have the type of radiator that doesn't have a drain plug but a small plastic angle connector attached to a rubber hose. You twist it 1/4 turn and pull out the connector to drain.
With the connector back in, there is residual coolant leaking at the connection point :eek:
Did an o-ring fall out, or is there a part option to seal this up properly? I can't refill the radiator until I fix this....
Any specifics, please advise (e.g. part #'s), nothing on realoem helped me.
Drain Plug o ring
This angle connector (11 53 1 711 385) fits where the drain plug normally goes, there is an O ring on it that will get distorted or fall out upon removal. BMW O ring 17 11 1 711 987 should fit.
Thanks, again Maxbimmer members to the rescue. Crisp and to the point.
This is after draining all the fluid from the radiator and block - anyone know where to get this part in a hurry (now) in the GTA?
