2001 BMW 530 DIESEL (E39)

I HAVE A DIESEL LEAK COMING FROM BEHIND THE DIESEL PUMP
AS SOON AS THE IGNITION IS SWITCHED ON BUT CANNOT PINPOINT THE ACTUAL PROBLEM DUE TO THE AWKWARD LOCATION OF THE SAID PUMP. I'VE REPLACED ALL THE RUBBER FUEL AND INJECTOR PIPES BUT WITHOUT ANY LUCK.
I'VE BEEN TOLD NOT TO REMOVE THE DIESEL PUMP AS I WILL END UP WITH EVEN MORE PROBLEMS ??
ANY SUGGESTION/SOLUTION.
FROM A HOME GROWN MECHANIC.

HOW DO I REPLENISH THE GEARBOX FLUID ON E39 BMW DIESEL AUTO


You will find a 1/2 inch or so pipe plug on one or the other side of the box. It will be near the top. Remove it and fill till it over flows. Takes a special pump to fill or a squeeze bottle with a flexible hose. The oil is 80 or 120 weight. It can be done but it is much easier to have your mechanic check and fill as may be necessary. Normally, unless the box is leaking, all you have to do is check it.
