You'll find it behind plastic housing on front of the engine. it has two pipe housings. Be carefull when working on it, it breaks.

91bmw 3181 coolant drained. Connection fr rad to motor appears to have broken at motor. Not enough to connect back up. Piece on motor too short. Is it much work to replace the piece on the motor


At the motor? That is odd. Is the part plastic? BMW currently sells a metal thermostat cover for this car. The 6-cyl BMWs used a plastic thermostat cover which failed routinely.
The BMW thermostat cover should cost you about $50 at the dealer or $40 on line. Gasket is sold separately. You will want to replace the thermostat while you have the thermostat cover off.

Where is the location of a thermostat on a bmw


Follow the top hose off the radiator until it goes into the motor. THe housing where the hose connects to the motor is where the thermostat is. You'll need to remove the housing and pop the thermostat out. Make sure the old gasket is completely cleaned off before installing the new one.

Is there a website to look at where the thermostat is located on a 1995 BMW 325i?


You can download a service manual at this site.

Usually the thermostat is located where the top radiator hose goes into the front of the engine. The piece that the host clamps to on the engine should have 2 bolts that bolt it to the engine. The thermostat is between that hose barb and the engine.

1999 BMW 323 convertible Radiator Replacement


BMW radiators are relatively cheap even at the dealer level ($250 approx), however BMW will almost certainly tell you that you must replace the thermostat. The thermostat is one of those parts that either works or not and if it has failed, you will know immediately after you test drive with the new rad. you should do that first before you waste more time and money on a thermostat you don't need. Most BMW's have a rad with a plastic upper hose connection and this fails - this is different than most other vehicles where the rad plugs up and the overheating prior to the final failure of the rad damages the thermostat
