0x27C3 DMTL leakage detection

I got the following error today: 0x27C3 DMTL leakage detection

Any help? Do you think will be an easy fix or I should visit the BMW Service Center to get the +1K quote?

I have the EasyCare Warranty with the $500 deductible.....What you guys think?

Thank You,
Jose

should be the same process, but not sure whether you need to reset any computers in the process after the swap.

It can also just be a gas cap left loose at one point. Before you jump into parts replacement I'd secure gas cap and clear the fault and see if it comes back. Before you condemn the dmtl you have to make sure there is no leak in the evap system, this is done by using a smoke machine.

A smoke test can be done from the front at the engine compartment left hand side. Not everyone has access to a smoke tester so you could just replace your dmtl or diagnose if there really is a leak.
