Anyone is familiar with this pump location, how hard it is to replace?
I'm getting error code 009C6B and most likely this is the part to be replaced.

Here's a link to a guy who just changed his. https://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sh....php?t=1315271

Edit: 9C77 is the code for a bad auxiliary water pump.
I have looked up your error code and received different information.
9C6B Right Sunlight Sensor, signal too hight, signal too low, signal implausible or no signal

What are your cars symptoms?

I don't think the 550 has a auxiliary water pump. There are a few differences from the 545 so check into it. Go to realOEM and see if you can find it.

Thanks for your replies.
I can confirm for '08 550i does have auxiliary water pump, item #7 (part number 64116988960):
RealOEM.com - Online BMW Parts Catalog

Ordered it and expecting delivery this week.
Will be DIY, it does not appear to be complicated, removing the airbox and the challenging part will be to have minimum coolant spill during hose connection transfer from old to new.

Replacement completed during the weekend, picture shows the new aux water pump installed, ready to mount back the airbox.

Great job! For once there is an easy repair for the N62 V8! There's not many.

By the way, is any coolant bleeding required for E60 550i or they self bleed on the go?
I had minimum coolant loss during this process, approx 1 cup, that is how much I added after to make the normal mark.
