I'm replacing a water pump on my 1990 BMW 525i and I don't no how to remove that thing where the spark plugs go and the rotor 2nd I'm also need to remove the timing belt cover can I get the 3rd bolt out...


STOP what you are doing before you damage something!! Whatever you are trying to remove is not the water pump. Neither the sparkplugs nor the "timing belt" cover needs to come off. Remove the fan belt. Remove the fan (the nut is LH thread- means it turns left to tighten and right to loosen). You will need a large wrench (32mm) availible at sears.The water pump is directly behind the fan and is held in by 4 10mm bolts.

How do i replace the turn signal indicator bulb on 1983 bmw 320i?


You don't say if its front or rear?
The rear is through the back corner of the boot/trunk, you may have to remove some trim. The bulb holder is a twist and remove type and be careful to line up the tags on replacement.
Front is similar and requires access to the inner wing, this may mean removing some other items to gain access.

How hard is it to change a cambelt on a bmw 320i e30?


You said E30, 320i correct? Your engine is a 2.0L 4 Cylinder engine? If so it does not have a timing belt, it has a chain, upper and lower gears and two chain slides. To change the timing chain and slide set is not easy if you have never done one, neither is the belt on the 6 cylinder engines. I recommend a reputable BMW shop.

Removing water pump


remove the radiator to have better access.
remove all the belts
now here is the hard part you need to make your own tool or buy the bmw tool to hold the fan belt pulley by the 10mm bolts some how there are many tools that you can use for this just be creative sometime weding a bolt or a big screwdriver does the job too in between the pulleys than loosen the 32mm nut which you can get that wrench at a bicycle shop for a few buck unless you have a bench grinder and can grind a 32mm down to half its thickness or buy the bmw fan pulley wrench and holder there expensive than just remove the water pump. Sometimes they will not come out very easy just to let you know the times I've changed them in my car or others I have had to beat on them with a Hammer to break them off they seize up in there pretty darn good and once you break them you have to continue till its out I recomend any water pump that has a metal impellar or you might end up being stuck doing this job again in the next 6 months make sure the part is German trust me its worth it. Good luck

Water Pump Leaking


the hardest part of this job is removing your fan clutch. you removed your top fan shroud, then your fan clutch, its reverse thread. take off your belt, upper radiator hose and 6 10mm bolts hold it in. clean water pump housing and put all back together. aftermarket water pumps do not come with theermostat, dealer pumps do. remove your belt tensioner from old water pump 3- 15mm bolt, two different sizes and install on your new pump. you need, 10mm socket, 15mm socket, flat head screw driver, pliers to removed hose,fan clutch tool(rent at autoparts store)
