    I dunno, I just like the mechanical ones, they are easier to fool with. I think that post is over a year old, I'd say at this point just replace whatever you have with what you have. Meaning, if you have mechanical, stick with it. If you have hydraulic, stick with it.

    Hello Smolck...... I saw a posting you made (could have been on another forum) where you mentioned that you prefer the old mechanical tensioner to the hydraulic one. Mine is starting to make some noise on cold starts and before I place my order, I was curious as to your experience/reasoning for your preference. I'd appreciate your thoughts!

    Merry Christmas!

    I got my new condenser fan in today and thought about tackling it tonight. Any certain steps or what I need to do in order to remove old condenser fan. This is for my '00 528i that I talked about to you last week. If you have a website you use that could break it down for me that would be great also so that it doesn't take up too much of your time\\\\Thanks

    Thanks for the advice! If i ever get motivated, I may try that with the back doors.

    Straight forward. Best thing to do with the fan is put your 32mm or 1 and 1/4 inch wrench on it in the 12 oclock position and smack the heck out of it (and I mean HARD!) with a 3lb sledge. This should loosen it nicely without the need for a screwdriver or pulley holder. Remember it is REVERSE thread so to the right is loose (hit toward the drivers fender as you are looking at the car)

    Smolck,

    found your videos for the t-stat and water pump replacement, Thanks. Any tricks for getting the fan cover and fan off or just straight forward removal.

    The 99's (at least mine) has the OBD port under the steering wheel and the 20 pin connector under the hood. I use the under the dash one for OBD codes and the 20 pin one for things like resetting the oil light and also that is how added the shark software.
