    I am trying to replace the water pump and thermostat because the water pump is broken. The shop offered me 1600 dollar to replace them. (9 years warranty) Is this a fair price for the 2012 bmw 335i?

    Hey so my car is overheating. Prior to this, the battery cable had been lose. So it had been off and reconnected several times with the sparks jumping.

    The past month or so I have been replacing the N52 in my sisters 2011 X3 28i as the old engine suffered sheared vanos bolts. During this I went ahead and replaced all the common maintenance items such as the water pump, thermostat, engine mounts, and all of the common gaskets that fail. All...

    A very long story short I had my serpentine belt fall apart and thrash my water pump wiring. That was quite some time ago. When it happened I checked the wiring and I made sure they were separate but they're stripped and I repaired those however now the water pump it still turns on and runs...

    Hey all, New to the forum, but in need of help. I replaced the water pump on my 07 BMW 335xi. All has gone wrong. For some backstory, this is my girlfriends car. She was driving along on a cold day and all of a sudden her heat stopped working. Then the engine started overheating. Seemed like...

    2011 328i overheated on the freeway. Engine shut off and had to get it towed. 95% confident its the water pump, so I am looking to replace the water pump and thermostat myself. I know pierburg is a good brand as well as behr for the thermostat, but are there any other notable brands to look out...

    Has anyone ever retrofitted a standard n54 water pump with the rectangular plug to replace the 11517632426 square plug water pump ....tried finding spec sheets with no luck to see if it draws same amps and displaces same amount of water

  9. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi all, I am going to do my first water pump replacement on my 2009 BMW 528i with 85k miles on it. There is no problem or codes related to water pump but I am planning to do some travels and I do not want to have water pump issue in the middle of no where. I have already read many discussions...

    2002 530I Ran a diagnostic test on my car and it said that my Auxiliary Water Pump wasn't working. The good news is that I understand that could be the reason why my heater has not been working. PROBLEM... where is this pump? I just replaced the Heater Control Valve, and the front hose on...

    Hello, I was looking over my 03 525iT to get it ready for a drive cycle and smog test after abs module rebuild and noticed a few drops of coolant in the belts area and some coolant on the cooler line. I think it may be the water pump, recently replaced the thermostat and lower radiator hose and...
  12. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi, all. Time to give back, here, as these forums have always been so helpful. The repair: water pump and thermostat replacement on an AWD E60/N52 5-series (2007 530xi). I think this procedure is similar for E60 and E90 models with either N52 or N54 engines. Regardless, the procedure is quite...
  13. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hey guys! I’m trying to get help on how to remove the water pump mounting support. I have a 2017 330i that is leaking right behind the water pump. At first I thought it was the water pump leaking so I replaced it. When I went to add coolant it all started to leak again from the same spot, which...
  14. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hi all, I've seen many posts about the P20EE code but I haven't seen many posts about my particular issue with it. I have a 2012 X5 35d with ~65k miles on it that is showing the P20EE code along with 4D16, which I understand is the NOx sensor, catalyst, bank 1- efficiency below threshold code...

    I have an 05 330xi that's had constant cooling system troubles. After I overheated back in November and stalled out, I replaced most of the hoses, the expansion tank, the thermostat, and water pump. I keep having persistent leaks dead center. No fluid on the pulleys so it definitely seems to be...

    This is not a step by step. Sorry for those looking for one....if needed email me at [email protected] for one if needed..... That said, did this job tonight. Couple of things: Get to the thermostat and pump from the bottom. Use jack stands etc. or a lift. Make sure you have a 1/4 inch...

    I keep getting this code 80436B "Auxiliary water pump: Short circuit to ground" popping up in my code reader, but never have had a check engine light. Code comes back in a day after I clear it. It is for the turbocharger cooler - anyone have any thoughts on this - should i just ignore - am...
