    Default Oil pan gasket replacement

    Mine has a small leak. Is it true you have to raise the engine to get the oil pan off?

    So I assume that nobody on this board has ever changed an oil pan gasket on an E34 motor?

    I've already done this procedure to my 535i. I did a simple search of the forum and found all the answers I got when I did mine. Try this...

    Thanks for the info. I will now leave the job for and pay someone else to do it. Too much for me!
