SOURCE: Radiator removal BMW 316i

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.

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.

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.

it may be possible that your heater core was faulty and some has by passed it. open hood and check for incoming and outgoing heater hoses into firewall(dash of car). it is also possible that the heater core is plugged, try getting your cooling system flushed

1996 bmw 316 1st gear popping out, how to fix transmission?


Salam Omar, When a gear pops out from the selected position it usually means you have a problem with the synchromesh clutch ring or cone inside the gearbox. The job you are thinking of undertaking is a very major job and one which technicians usually choose is to replace the gearbox. There are two different types of gear box used on BMW and if you want to carry on with the job you need to identify which of those boxes is fitted to your car. The one is a close ratio gearbox and the other touring. Let me know what you decide and we'll see where to go from there. If you decide on a rebuild we have a lot of work ahead. Shalom John

316i 1st gear when u speed up the car jolts going up in revs but all the other gears r ok?


hi, check the rubber hose between the air box and the inlet manifold, the rubber was cracked underneath and was drawing air after the sensor, causing the car to jump in 1st gear! a quick fix is to tape it using electrical tape, or just replace it. hope this helps!! steg
