Has anyone replaced their e90 waterpump?

Went out to our e90 with the Peake and saw this code "FC 2E81 Electric coolant pump, speed deviation, speed outside the tolerance". If I am reading that right, it is time to replace the coolant pump. The good news is that it is fairly easy to access, the bad news is that the pump is at least $458 and the thermostat is $120 not to mention the replace bolts, gaskets etc.
Has anyone replaced the coolant pump, is there anything I need to know about before I dive in?

Try the diy and maintenance section do a search for water pump

Get prices from realoem.com or call tischer they may be a little cheaper.

Thanks, they have a lot of great DIY write ups over there. The prices I quoted were from realoem.com.

Somebody just did one on an N52 X3. According to this your E90 is a lot easier.

Tischer is a lot cheaper for both by the way. Something like 411 and 91 plus shipping...

It doesn't look like and easy job.

Space constriction and other stuff in the way plus
dropping all the panels and taking off part of the suspension.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
Give us a report on how it goes.
Did you see the funny video with the kind of Redneck acting guys doing
a 325 .
