    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    So the waterpump was replaced, and as it was being snugged up, I think the nuts were overtorqued. The top and bottom right nuts are on and not threaded.

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Some of the threads that hold on my pollen filter housing have been stripped by some careless moron. I gather that this is a common problem. My concern is that it will allow water in. Just wondered if there were any good fixes for this problem other than putting a bigger screw in.
