Replacement selector rod seal for (A5S390R)

Hello, I was under my 2001 x5 3.0 the other day and spotted a oil leak coming from the selector rod that goes into the auto transmission. Looks like I can get the part through pelican. When I read the BMW TIS it suggests you need to use a special tool 245363 (removal) and (245364) for the install.

Has anyone done this repair before and have any advice. Do I need this two tools, if so where is the best place to get them.

I will be traveling to the USA this Friday on holiday. Is it possible for you to advise details of a BMW dealership which can order this in and ship to my hotel?

Since it's a GM 5L40e or 5L50e trans I'm sure you can just see if a GM tool supplier has the tool.

One of these tool may work for you:

Amazon.com: AMPRO T75866 Transmission Seal Remover and Installer GM: Home Improvement

Amazon.com: Transmission Seal Remover/Installer Gm: Automotive

I think I used the first one for my E34 touring.

Thanks for your reply however I have the special bmw tool. The problem I have is the bmw TIS 2450001 instructions to do the procedure have been remove form the Internet. I was after these so I do the replacement correctly.

Hey Dave,

Did you end up doing this job yet? When my X was in monday I was told my selector shaft seal is leaking too. Did this job end up being very difficult?

Not yet, I,m waiting to get another copy of the BMW TIS 2450001 which provides to instruction and pictures of what to do. Hopefully it will arrive this week.

I purchased the BMW tool so just need the TIS to start. Will post feedback when I have done this job.
