PCV valve

Hi, 2009 X5 3.0si, changing valve cover gasket and others.
Tested PCV (built into valve cover) and will not hold suction.
All I've read is that it is not replaceable(must replace valve cover).
I've seen decent hacks on V8 X5's and they have a replacement.
Hard to believe with the popular 3.0 that there isn't a PCV replacement.

If there is, does anyone have the part number and where to buy?
I've checked all the major suppliers, Pelican, RM, FCP Euro, etc, NOTHING!

Any ideas?

As far as I know, I havent seen anything like that for the 30i's. It is weird. But you might want to call one of those suppliers and ask about their off brand valve covers. Half the price and usually have zero issues. Plus they are warranty backed by the supplier, some offer lifetime.

Good luck!

They are out there for the n52.. or used to be. It’s not worth the hassle in my opinion. I’ve replaced them on n52 and n55 only to buy a little time- more so on the n55 because it has other integrated valves that harden and rot.

Better to just get a URO or genuine assembly which comes with gaskets, hardware, etc. I’ll see if I can find the p/n for the n52 valve tomorrow.

This is what you’re looking for but you’ll have to search around to see if there are other merchants selling this part. The manufacturer is “BMTSR”
