M54 upper coolant hose O-Rings size?

Hello guys can anyone tell me what size O-ring is required for the upper coolant hose on M54B30? My hoses are in excellent condition but I have a slight drip from the deformed O-rings around the tip of the expansion tank. I'm sure they are o-rings because I was changing the expansion tank soon and I found them to be deformed but still connected them but started to swim... Please if you can give me the size in millimeters because i am from Europe I am talking about. OEM No. 11537500733

You can get complete o-ring kits for coolant overhaul I haven't seen the size for that exact one though. If you have a digital calipers just take it out and measure. (if you don't have get one)

- This E46 thread talked about radiator hoses O-rings sizes:

https://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=906997


- Another approach is to disconnect the hose, remove the O-ring and measure it yourself. However, over the years, the O-ring probably flattened out, so you may have to round up the thickness a bit to simulated factory size.

Good find! Looks like the other o-ring the OP is after is 16x3.

I bought the full kit from the guy on eBay, but without taking a hose off, I don't know which o-ring goes where. I only knew the 38x4 (which I posted on another forum for him) because I recently changed out those o-rings and measured the new ones so I could replace them in my kit.

No, the O.P. referred to the large radiator hose.
So according to that E46 link, it us 4x38 mm.

That fits sound about right. I know I took one out to try to find a local replacement but the cs was too fat.

Sorry, my reply didn't make sense just looking at this forum. I had posted on bimmerfest to answer about the size of the large orings. Thus, he only needed the size for the smaller one.

Hello guys i'm sorry but I was a business trip, and I did not have time to write. Ok, can I understand that the small o-ring is 16x3 or?
