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.

1990 BMW 525i 2.5L engine overheats after rplaceing water pump, stermostat,fan clucth,radiator

There's trapped air in the cooling system.
  • You need to remove the bleeder screw on top of the radiator when adding water to the expansion tank.
  • With the engine running, pour water into the expansion tank till you see air go out through the bleeder screw's hole.
  • Just keep adding water until no more air bubbles come out then just put the screw back in place.
  • Then fill the expansion tank to it's normal level/line.

I have a 93 525i BMW and i keep getting a warning! Coolent level owners manual but its full with coolent, what else could it be?

On the 1990 model 525i (which should be similar), there is a float switch located at the bottom driver side of the radiator in the integrated overflow/fill tank just above the radiator drain. This float switch is what triggers the 'Low Coolant' indication on the dash. The electrical connector faces towards the rear of the radiator and has a rubber boot that protects it. To replace it, pull boot back, remove electrical connector, loosen and unscrew the retaining nut (accessible from underneath the car) and slide the old level switch out and install the new one in reverse.

Remove the steering wheel in 1986 bmw 318i please help

You need to take the cover off in the middle. Once you do that you will see where the wheel is attatched to the column on a spline held on with a nut. Once the nut is removed you should be able to yank it off the column. If the wheel wont come off you will need a steering wheel puller. Many auto parts stores rent tools like that out for very cheap. Try Napa. Good luck!

Steering wheel and ignition look 1992 bmw 525i

Sorry I have not done a BMW but steering wheels usually require a puller to remove from the spline.
I have mostly worked on *** cars and the steering lock and key are removed without the steering wheel removed. The lock assembly attaches around the steering column, and is held on by some tamperproof bolts which break the hex off on installation, so you are left with round heads that look like rivets, I use a small chisel or punch to get them turning, it may be possible to drill the heads off as well, Sorry again if my info only relates to japanese cars, but hopfully I helped with the steering wheel removal.

Removing steering wheel 1987 bmw 325

first you need to remove the horn button use a flat screwdriver to pop it out then get the right size socket and remove the large nut you see after the horn button is removed be careful this nut will be pretty tight easier to keep the sterring wheel locked when breaking this nut loose .after you get the nut removed insert the key into the ignition and turn the key to unlock the steering wheel you will not be able to pull the steering wheel off if it is locked now you have to be careful not to hit yourself as the wheel will suddenly just come loose sometimes it will take some muscle other time will come right out but you will have to try to rock it with both hands gripping it on 2 sides rocking it back and forth and should come out
