Sorry I can't do for you what I do at the dealer parts department after
they tell me the O-Rings are in the filter kit.
Which is to open it up, empty it out, ask them to find the 744-01
O-rings, which of course they can't since they are not in there. then
watch the part guys go open box after box, looking for them. Great
entertainment. When I order 'em, I order extras.
Perhaps the key word is what is "required" for a filter change...since
all you "really" need is the filter.
But, per BMW procedures, BOTH the large single, and the two small
O-rings, should be replaced, along with the drain fitting washer.
Just because they aren't there, and just because they last forever
anyway, doesn't mean it ain't part of the procedure.
