Question about 2001 BMW 325
Open the bonnet. Use a 10mm socket to remove the bolt holding the water bottle to the shell of the car. Disconnect the 2 eletrical connections to the water bottle. The water bottle will now pull out. Remove the little pump by pulling it up from its housing in the water bottle. You will now see a little black, rubber 'thing'. Remove this and you will have the filter. Thoroughly wash this and remove and of the grime. Take a hose and rinse the water bottle itself thoroughly, romoveing any dirt or cleaner fluid. Reverse the process (put it all back together). This will sort it out.
The problem is using viscose based cleaner fluids. BMW will charge you £120.00 + VAT to resolve this problem. I did it last night in 10 minutes for Zero pounds sterling. Then use an ethanol based cleaner fluid (Lidl £1.49 for a litre, window spray cleaner). BMW will charge you £15.00 + vat for 500 ml.
I am not mechanically minded, but this job was a piece of ****. Good luck!
