You need the special tool that holds the water pump pulley while you undo (clockwise!) the main nut... which is 32mm. The tool is a long thin metal piece with two holes and a cutout for the round pulley. The holes hold the nuts to stop the pulley from spinning.

Need a diagram on replacing a radiator on 99 bmw 528i

1. remove clutch fan. Left hand thread on the nut. Need special holding tool, google up bmw fan removal tool, you'll see what I mean.
2) fan/clutch and shroud come out as one.
3) remove hoses, overflow bottle, and hidden hose leading to the overflow bottle.
4) watch out for the two rubber discs holding the radiator in to make it "float" in place.

After that it's simple mechanics, it lifts out through the top, although if you jack up the car high enough it's possible to take it out via the bottom. Passenger side drain plug on the bottom of the radiator, it's blue btw. The transmission cooler and power steering cooler is attached to the condenser, shouldn't have to mess with it.

All said, if you've taken more than 35 minutes to remove the radiator, you're doing something seriously wrong. Hardes part for newbies is the fan clutch nut.

100000 mile service checks/replacement parts on a 2000 BMW 528i

If your talking about what would a dealership change, it generally consists of a tune up, including spark plugs, plug wires, air filter, oil change, pcv valve, and fuel filter. Thats also usually when they want to replace the timing belts. There may be one or two other things specific to BMW, but generally thats what you can expect.
