My E92 has been leaking from the drain plug.  I have re-seated it a few times with out much luck so I bought a new one (control sleeve and adjustment plug #2/3 at www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts).

My question is how do you get the plug and sleeve out?  It has a 'nut' on the outside, but looks like it is a key-way with slots and tabs.  Is there a trick to lining up the keyway?

Thanks in advance.

Hello!

 

First of all, does your car have auto or manual transsmition? What is the part no. of sleeve you have bought. 

 

You simply un-screew the old sleeve with drain plug and screew in the new one.

It's hard to tell from the drawing. It may be one of the drain plugs that needs to be turned slightly to be removed.

Can you post a picture of the actual drain plug?

Thanks

This is for a 2010 Manual Transmission

The part number is 17 10 7 523 260.  The 'plug' is the blue threaded part in the center.  The sleeve is the lighter color outside.  

It seems like it should be easy, just wondering if there is a trick to lining up the keyway slots.  The hex shape at the bottom leads you to believe it is threaded but as you can see from the replacement, there are no threads.

Thanks again

Hi!

Radiator has slots that match this tabs on the sleeve. So, you need to rotate the sleeve until they align, and the sleeve will be free. You need to turn maybe 1/4 or 1/2 turn. Install new one in reverse order. 

 

Just be careful, don't use excessive force.

PS. Just for info: that one on your photo is a short sleeve, for manual transsmition. Auto has noticable longer sleeve.
