Front Damage on E36

Hello Aviorix,
Recently hit a lamp post head on at around 15-20mph, bumper and grill smashed, fan damage but no leaks from radiator. On an E36 tourer auto sport 1999 Sreg, drives ok, power ok, just a perculier sounding fan. Could there be chasis damage, would it be worth buying back if written off?
Waiting for Engineers report.("very moody, uncooperative")
Had a brand new short engine put in at £2400 just a few months ago so I am currently very anxious! PLEASE advise.
Many Thanks
Ajmal

Worst case diagnosis/cost scenario? front underbelly damage,hit 1' tall stake in ground. hissing sound ~5 sec & a/c fluid leaked by radiator gills. a/c blows warm air.


the damage will be a punctured condenser for the ac system
the green oil is the compressor oil that is circulated with the gas
you will not see the gas as it evaporates as soon as it hits the air. Best have an accredited ac specialist shop replace the condenser and any other damaged pipe work

Check your oil if it's not the color it normally us and looks slushy than you have a blown head gasket that's when your oil mixes in with your antifreeze and to fix that you either need a new engine or change the head gasket

2003 escalade how to remove front bumper.


I just took this one on today. You'll need a flat head screw driver (a clip puller if you have one) a 15mm socket with a 10" extension and 10mm socket. Pop the hood, remove the plastic guard over the radiator and grill. Remove the 10mm bolt in the center of the grill. Remove the grill by popping the clips off each side then the grill will remove by pulling up. Remove the headlights by removing the two pins, one on top one on the inside of the lamp assembly. Remove 4, 15mm bolts from the top side of the bumper (2 upper, 2 lower that require the extension). From underneath the vehicle remove 2 more 15mm bolts (one from each side). The bolts are located just outside of the fog light assembly and sit horizontally. The bumper is now ready to be uncliped. From the inside of the wheel well use a Flathead screw driver to push in the clip while pulling the bumper away from the mounts. I used a large floor mat to keep the bumper from hitting the ground directly. It's helpful to have a second person to help on the last step.
Good Luck!

I need to find the location for radiator fan relay


inside the front bumper between the front grill and the a/c condenser
The relay mounting location is designed to dissipate heat. Ensure the relay is securely attached to prevent relay "thermal" shutdown and relay damage, resulting in possible engine overheating.

Oil pan crack


yes, it could have caused this. You have to prove it with the insurance company, by getting a mechanic to say this is what hit it and caused it to hit the pan.

You have to remove the front bumper and grill etc

There are 5 bolts holding the headlight assembly in place. 2 at the top and 3 underneath.

Remove the plastic cross piece by prising out the clips and then the grille clips too then unbolt the bolts eithr side under the wheel arch. The bumper is still fastened using cips. Pull the bumper forward to unclip.
