N63 vacuum pump


Here performing a customer care package,,,,replacing the vacuum pump on a n63,,,,,you have to remove the heat shield ,,,,,just the passengers side heat shield,,,,,you can pry it out it just takes some time and patience .


I don’t know if you can see the vacuum pump down there,,,,it’s really in a tight spot,,,,BMW use to pay us 4 hours to replace,,,,,now BMW only pays us about 2 hours,,,,they found out we were beating the allowed work time,,,,,sucks for us ,,,,good for BMW.

    Can you please explain why the Vacuum Pump is under CCP? What is the possible failure?
    Thank You!


    • The customer care package is just that,,,,it is problems that BMW knows about the car,,,,and there are certain parts that BMW has us inspect and replace them to make the customer happy with there car,,,,the vacuum pump was known to leak oil,,,,so we have to inspect the part number on the vacuum pump,,,,and if it isn’t the latest part number then we replace it with the newest and latest part number to make the customer happy,,,,,I hope this helps

    Do you have any tips on how to remove lower passenger side heat shield (I’m stuck on this step)? I’ve removed all the bolts and it seems to be wedged by the vacuum pump. Last time I felt so lost was when replacing the by-pass Y-hose 😉


    • Are you sure you have all the bolts out,,,,there is that one under the car on the passengers side by the firewall,,,,and there is that clip that the heat shield slides into that can cause a problem,,,you must bend that clip so it will release the heat shield

    My vacuum pump is leaking oil, which is coming out of a hole in one of my turbo wastegate actuators. BMW extended the warrantee to 10 years/120k on the vacuum pump, so I think I can get them to fix that. I’ll have to deal with the actuator. However, is there going to be oil in the vacuum tank that could pose a problem that I should get them to fix as well?
