    e34 535 oil sump plastic cap at rear

    Hi. Does anyone know the function of the black plastic cap at the rear of the oil sump cover? Mine is loose and was thoughtful of unmetered air .

    when I remove that cap, I can see the flywheel at the rear of the engine of my E32 750. I drove some year without that cap. Here some pics where that cap goes in on a 750, maybe the same on your car http://www.bimmerboard.com/forums/posts/732523/

    Thank you Shogun - appreciate your ever present thoughtful insights. Spoke with a close friend who is a BMW trained Mechanic, with the e34 oil sump gasket - if one lifts the RHD drivers side of the engine ( undo both Eng Mounts and Trans Mount ) one can tilt the pan and out it comes. No need to remove subframe nor pump.
