Hi, the two clamps that secure the radiator have a small slot on the top, if you insert a small screwdriver into the slot and use it as a pry bar you should be able to unclip the holding clamp and it then releases like a hinge.

Remove the radiator cowling. It has 2 connecting clips(arrowed in photo)

Remove these clips by pushing out the centre portion with a small screwdriver as shown below.

Lift the cowlin up and remove. Be careful of pushing it against the radiator fins.
Locate the A/C tensioner pulley on the righthand side of the enginebetween the A/C compressor and Crankshaft, and pry off the dust cover(arrowed) with a screwdriver.

Loosen the 13mm nut inside and remove the belt.
Turn the 16mm bolt on the serpentine tensioner pulleycounter clockwise to slacken the belt and remove the belt. Refit the new belt to the routing diagram below and using the 1st track (closest to the engine) on the crankshaft
  1. Crankshaft
  2. Water pump/fan pulley
  3. Idler pulley
  4. Alternator
  5. Power steering
  6. Sepentine belt tensioner

If you are replacing the tensioner pulley remember that it is held in place by a reverse threaded bolt, so turn clockwise to loosen it.
Refit the A/C belt. fasten the tensioner pulley bolt by hand. Using a 10mm allen key in the hole in the pulley(arrowed), tension the belt, keep pressure on the allen key and fasten the pulley bolt with a wrench.

When refitting the fan shroud, position the shroud. It has a tab on each side halfway down the shroud that needs to locate in the radiator. Remove the centre pin from the shroud's clips completely. Insert the clip into its position and then insert the centre pin of the clip and push it in until flush with the clip itself.

Where is the thermostat and water pump on a 1998 bmw 316i



  • They are both on the same side as the belt. You have to remove the fan and belts and the coolant as well. As you will see in the photo I have uploaded the thermostat housing. You remover the hose from the top of the radiator and the plastic housing that the hose is attached too is the thermostat housing. The water pump is right below (also indicated in the photo)

Remove radiator from 1993 mercedes 190 remove radiator from 1993 mecedes 190E


First remove the fan shroud - undo the two clips on the left and right by pulling up. It should be possible to now ease the shroud upwards passed the fan. Drain the coolant (there is red valve on the right hand side lower corner of the radiator for this purpose) Remove the top and lower hoses. Un-clip the side panels that fill the gaps either side of the radiator aperture. Remove the two top clips, by pulling them upwards, that secure the radiator to the car body cross member at the front. The radiator should just lift up and out. Beautifully simple German design.

check if the water is circulating as you might have a blockage in the header tank. this can be checked by opening the radiator cap and check if the water is circulating on top.

Need to get the expansion tank out of bmw 323i 2000 cannot remove it any suggestions?


?? i think it's part of your radiator, it's all one piece.
if it's separate from the radiator it should be hanging there only with some screws or clips, the rest is just pressure.
the have some rubber grommets on the bottom that keep them tight
