For some reason they don't list the p/n. You'll probably have to call your dealer for the p/n. Looks like whomever changed your oil didn't bother to reinstall that piece. Lazy...

When the part number in the diagram is grayed out...and not listed in the part number index...then that item isn't for the model you entered.

I would suggest that the OP go back to the site, enter the last 7 digits of their VIN...then go to that diagram to verify that item #3 is still grayed out...if it is...then don't worry...you're not missing the part.

Also take note that item #2 is also grayed out...and if you find a BMW model that uses #2...it probably also uses #3.

I crossed reference with my last 7 digits...it was grayed out indeed. I thought for some reason it was because its a new catalog.
i was wondering if i was missing the entire cover..i didn't see any screw holes or missing clips inserts which makes me believe that no cover goes there.
I'll investigate further
Thanks for your input.

i was wondering if there's an entire underbody cover missing besides the trap door. Maybe any other 2015 owner would be able to verify.

To investigate what other BMW models that might use the same parts or the other items that are grayed out in that diagram...click on the part number for item #1 (which obviously you have).

This should give you a list of other BMW models that may use that part or other parts that are listed in that diagram. Then click on one of those models and it will take you to their diagram. You'll probably run into another BMW model that uses #1...or perhaps #2, or #3 and other parts that were grayed out in the diagram when you used your VIN.

Thanks,
My best guess and the little research is that part # 51757193752 and 51757209541 is for non x-drive vehicles.
I've seen a few youtube video "bmw F10 oil change " and it seem that the one that do have the cover and trap doors are non x-drive.
Mine is x-drive. It seems like there's is no missing screw holes or missing clip inserts that leads me to believe the cover is missing.
Maybe someone w/ a 535 lci x-drive can confirm either or.

I don't think it is held in by screws. I believe it twists-in.

I just looked a little closer... Did a speed-bump jump up and get you?

Definitely agree...its right there in the diagram. In the diagram below for a LCI f10 528i...there's definitely a screw (#5) that holds the cover (#3) in place: (tip: for those that don't know...the encircled numbers in the diagram represent hardware)
