Valve cover gasket, Oil pan gasket, Mechatronic sleeve seal.

Well ALL of that ^ is thankfully covered by my extended warranty. Recently I posted about my valve cover leaking. I took it into the bmw dealership and after them diagnosing it. They noticed that not only the valve cover gasket was leaking, also my oil pan gasket was leaking and even my mechatronic sleeve seal was leaking. They also noticed i have a broken head bolt and need a new tensioner pulley. The broken headbolt is not covered by the warranty, but they might work out a deal with me since they are already going to replace the valve cover gasket. The tensioner pulley is also not covered. So i am hoping i dont have to spend much out of pocket to get the head bolt and tensioner pulley done. For now i get a loaner vehicle while the warranty place sends their private inspector to confirm all the diagnoses performed by bmw before they do the work. I will stay posted.

I believe it was $2,250. Took a good bit of negotiating though.

Well a quick update, the dealership called me. My warranty place sent a private inspector to verify all the work that needed to be done. Now, the warranty has called the dealership and said that the work needed on the car is not covered by the warranty. So i guess i am now fckd, got a broken head bolt, need valve cover gasket, oil pan gasket, mechatronic seal and a tensioner pulley...all exceeding over 5k in repairs...Looks like ill have to do this on my own now since the warranty messed up in the beginning saying it would be covered and now its not....ugh highly frustrated.

that is why i get my warranties from BMW dealers, in case the Warranty denies a legitimate repair so i can bitch at the people that sold me the BS warranty.

paco89, check the warranty papers that you've signed. It should list things that are covered and not covered.

Hard to believe NONE of that is covered.
Definitely check what you signed/were given with the car.

I mean what is the f'n point of your warranty if these types of failures aren't covered.

Yes i will post the pics of the stuff that is covered. Unless i misunderstand the writing. And last update. There has been some terrible miscomunication between my warranty and the dealership. I spoke to the warranty place and they said that they have not yet made a final determination on all the coverage but that some parts may be covered. I am not sure who BMW spoke with when they got told none of it was covered. I am currently working directly with my warranty to see what all will be covered, the adjuster is still working on the report that the private inspector they sent brought back. They asked me to fax them records of the maintenance i have done to the car so far as well as registration information. I will stay posted, i just know that this is frustrating...

Looks like everything should be covered according to the black and white you posted.

The mechatronic sleeve would be under the transmission section.

I really hope it works out in your favor.
