Pictures of oil leak at oil cooler hoses

I've got leak coming from oil cooler either from intake or outake hoses. I'm posting some pics of this. Any suggestions as to possible repair issues
is this just hose repairs or could cooler have to be replaced?

I had an oil leak from the same area not long ago and the dealer's initial prognosis was to replace the oil cooler. However, a week at home in the garage proved that wasn't the issue so they replaced the hoses on the 2nd visit and that appears to have fixed the issue. Apparently the hoses are $350 parts.

Has anyone replaced the hoses themselves? I was curious if they are easily accessible if you come in from up above.

I had the same issue and the dealer replaced the whole oil cooler and other stuff (maybe hoses but not sure) under warranty.

When they did my cooler replacement, they pulled the bumper. When they did the hose replacement, I believe they only dropped the panel under the engine.

Ok i think it is OFFICIAL!

The e60 m5 has a common leak where it attaches to the oil cooler!
I had the same issue however didn't know it was at the connectors till I had the bumper off and had purchased the RPI oil cooler.

Thanks Eloy/Rpi. Oil cooler success

I didn't replace my hoses i just got two new rubber seals. I think 2 seals + tightening of the nut that holds the hoses on is all that is needed here.
