HI! Do you see any plastic snaps thats enclosing the fan cover? If none the a 10mm bolt is holding it. Once you find the 10mm. bolts you can remove them to let go of the cover... That is only when the plastic snaps are not available. Hope this helps and have a good one!

    The fan cover must be attached to the fan itself. Please look for two 10mm bolt on top.

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.

My 1990 BMW 525i is over heating


Try replacing the thermostat. It is supposed to open when the water temp reaches a certain point usually around 180 degrees. It might be stuck in the closed position.

1995 BMW 525I over heating issue. I repaired head


Hi, Sounds like you have tried about everything. Ok the aux. coolant switch is for the electric pump for the heater core will not cause an over heating condition just a longer warm up of the heater core. Has the cooling system been bleed properly if there is a trapped air pocket it will not let coolant circulate. Was the new thermostat installed correctly? They have a vent that needs to be towards the top or they trap air on the back side and cant take an accurate reading to open and close. Other areas to look at would be proper operation of the fan clutch, if they fail they can cause the fan to not lock up properly and supply enough air movement through the radiator. The aux. electric fans and their temp switches do you hear them coming on are they coming on at the right temp.

1994 Camaro: My engine is overheating. Ive flushed the ratiator...


It could be the radiator fan motor if all sensors and relays have been changed.......unplug the coolant temperature sensor the fan should come on and stay on unless the motor is bad or it is not getting electrical current.

Can 2008 BMW 528i ignition coils be used for 2003 BMW 525i


According to my cross reference,the coil for 2008 528i is the same as 2003 525i.

You should use the same brand of coil so the internal resistance is the same.
