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.

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)

Tip

Changing a serpentine belt on an E36 BMW 318i(316i)


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

b8bc03e.jpg


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

7a26c79.jpg

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.

I have bmw 316i se year2000 ilose about 1lt warter every 2 days ihave put on new headertank new cap and top hose still it goes help


when you top up your radiator side tank do you unscrew the bleed screw to the left of the cap,if this is undone the air can escape and allow more coolant into the system, once topped up to the top and air bled out of system, run the engine and the correct (max) level is actualy about 1/2 way down the side tank on the radiator. if the car still loses coolant get a garage to pressure test the system for leaks. if there is more steam than usual from the exhaust then it may be that the head gasket is on its way out. hope this helps

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.

hi markjones, the ignition switch can usually be removed without too much disassembly. First you will need to remove a plastic screw in the upper and lower trim covers. Seperate the covers. You should see a black plastic ring around the mechanical switch. gentley remove the ring. Next remove the rubber o-ring/band. With the key in the iginition and turned to almost to position 1, insert a heavy duty paper clip, or bmw special tool (about $30 from the dealer) into the small hole in the switch. There is a cam in the hole that needs to be twisted clockwise so the cylinder can be removed. When installing a new switch make sure to remove the little tab pice of metal that usually breaks off in the housing. Also be sure to make sure and reinstall the rubber ring/band because they are part of the ews system. If you key turns continuously, or is not able to be removed, the ignition housing and cylinder both will need replaced. Replacing the lock housing is about a 2 hour sequence and can be challenging. I would recommend a shop for that kind of repair.
