I nee d to replace thermostat on 2003 bmw 325i how


The thermostat is inside a black plastic housing, It is inside the housing assembly where both radiator hoses meet up by the engine. You can't replace just the thermostat, the whole housing has to be replaced,

Where is the location of a thermostat on a bmw


Follow the top hose off the radiator until it goes into the motor. THe housing where the hose connects to the motor is where the thermostat is. You'll need to remove the housing and pop the thermostat out. Make sure the old gasket is completely cleaned off before installing the new one.

Is there a website to look at where the thermostat is located on a 1995 BMW 325i?


You can download a service manual at this site.

Usually the thermostat is located where the top radiator hose goes into the front of the engine. The piece that the host clamps to on the engine should have 2 bolts that bolt it to the engine. The thermostat is between that hose barb and the engine.

Overheating


Have you tried the 8 mm bleeder screw on top of the thermostat housing? You may have air trapped behind your thermostat. Also, overheating can be caused by a collapsed lower radiator hose. If it's soft and you can squeeze it together, then under acceleration it closes down on itself thus preventing the flow of your coolant. Also check your radiator cap. It's supposed to be a 1.1 Bar cap but if it's not functioning correctly, by having to add coolant to the coolant reservoir bottle or the coolant overflow bottle overflowing, usually says it's the radiator cap. These are the simple fixes that you ,may have overlooked.

Good Luck,
