This how it is done step by step.
Remove the mounting bolts from the coolant expansion tank and lift the expansion tank out of the engine compartment. Tip: Do not disconnect the hoses from the coolant expansion tank. Label and disconnect the electrical connectors from the starter motor. Remove the mounting nuts from the starter motor and lift the starter motor off the bellhousing. Using a flashlight, inspect the flywheel teeth (through the opening in the bell housing) while an assistant turns the engine over by hand. You should replace the flywheel if any teeth are missing, cracked, or chipped. Tip: To turn the engine over by hand, turn the harmonic balancer bolt clockwise with the correct socket and 1/2 inch ratchet. Install the new starter motor on the bellhousing and tighten the mounting nuts. Connect the electrical connectors to the starter motor. Re-install the expansion tank and tighten the mounting bolts. Reconnect the negative battery cable.

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.

Location for fuel pump on 92 525i bmw


Typically, you will find the fuel pump for a BMW 525 located under an access panel in the trunk. Remove the contents of the trunk, remove the floor/spare tire cover and a metal access panel will be visible on the floor being held in by several small bolts. The panel is about 4"x6" in size. Remove the bolts, carefully pry up the panel (it has some sticky sealing material) and the fuel pump mounted on top of the gas tank will be visible with fuel lines entering/exiting it. This is where it was for my 1990 525i.

I need to now ware area of engine is crankshaft sensor 525i 2001 bmw


Hi rafymoctezum,

The crankshaft sensor for your car is located near the starter. The best way to see it is to remove the driver's side microfilter housing and connected air tube. If you are looking at the starter, the crankshaft sensor is located to the right and is held in place with a 5mm allen bolt.

We have a 1995 BMW 525i. I need to replace some


My bmw dealer said that the Mass Air Flow Sensor needed to be replaced. The car would not run. It will start, idle. upon excelleration it chokes and dies. The "check engine" light is on. I disconnected the MAS and the car runs fantastic. SOOOO, I ordered a MAS and installed it. Reconnected the unit and the same problem occured. Is there a fuse relay under the hood or back seat that I can replace?
Thanks
Gordon
