Great job on the DIY Alex...I just did this yesterday and you're DIY was key.
I would like to point out one observation though. On re-installation, I found it easier to install hose #2 first while in place in the car as this hose must be rotated.
This allowed me to connect all hoses within 10 minutes!
Let me point out that I have a MY 2000 323i with an M52 so install may be a little different.
Again, thanks for the DIY, Great Job!:thumbup:
I replaced mine preventetively before it started leaking oil (one of the symptoms). Leaking unit can be the cause of increased oil consumption.
Great DIY. I'm replacing mine when it gets warmer. Did you get all the parts from Plaza? I live here in MO. I know they give you a CCA discount.
You are very welcome. Glad everything worked out for you. As for what hose to connect first, it's whatever works better for you. I tried hose 2 first and had no luck, but I'm glad it took you 10minutes, it took me much longer :thumbup:
I went to the Tisher site and couldn't locate the CVV. I put CVV and then oil separator in the search engine and turned up no hits. How do I locate the CVV?:dunno:
