Diesel N57 Engine Oil Filter Housing Leak

My car has recently developed a small oil leak around the oil filter housing. After cleaning the area and a careful look it seems to be gasket 5 shown below has failed. This gasket set costs 59 and it looks a DIYable job but now that the newTIS site is closed down at BMW's instruction, I can find no other source for BMW's repair manual unless I pay $30 per hour or an annual $2,500 licence. That kind of pricing is BMW telling us they don't want owners working on their own cars and that just makes me angry. Is there any other source for a repair manual please? Thanks

I think you can get it from one of the coding virtual machines that address doing the rounds. There's some threads in the other forums for alternatives to tis. I've not tried yet, but it's a bit of a blow that such a useful repository is no longer easily on hand.

I found a workshop manual on Emanuals online. Search for BMW 6 series. Charge is 9.99 for whopping 15GB download. Get it before BMW close it down!

I already looked and sadly not. Only one for an old 5 series with an N57 engine but the arrangement is quite different

How close to the TIS is it and does it cover the M6 as well?

UPDATE: Does NOT cover the F06 / F12 and F13

Oh s**t. Sorry about that. I am travelling right now and have no high speed internet until tomorrow so was not able to check.

This is a copy and paste from the description for the manual. It sounds like the right one.....

Going through the menu and selecting the M6, it only goes to 2010. It may just be a web site issue but for anyone going to order one should check with the seller. Would love to get an F06 M6 manual, since I do a lot of the routine job myself (that is my therapy, although not much cheaper than a shrink...)

It's ISTA+ and a total PITA to use. It is a .OVA file so you have to install a bootleg virtual windows 7 instance on your PC to run it. It is slow, cumbersome and hard to navigate. I am running it on my 2 year old HP i7 Elitebook with 16GB RAM. I don't recommend it even for 10
