  1. E46
    Hi All, My car (e46 compact, 316ti) overheated and caused the coolant pressure cap to pop spraying coolant everywhere 🤦‍♂️ AA guy came out and checked it over and said I've not got a leak and suspects the water pump is at fault. I will be getting it into a garage asap, however I needed to ask...

    Hi, seems the dreaded water pump has gone. As in the title, does anyone know if this pump will fit my 2007 335i convertible? Some of the new ones for sale from vdo and continental seem to fit all n54-n55 from 06 till now. Just checking on here before I buy. I know it would be much better buying...

    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. However, the top and bottom left nuts are threaded, they will turn clockwise or anti-clockwise indefinitely. All four nuts are on though. I've...

    So my waterpump has failed. Yellow temp light then red about 2 minutes away from my house. I let it cool down for half hour then limped it home with no lights showing on dash. When I start from cold the cooling fan is on full blast straight away. Anyone give me a rough price I should expect...

    Hi All Need some advice before I go off spending on another gearbox. The fan/alt belt snapped while driving and since it was quite dark I continued driving. The vehicle however came to a halt after a few kilometers and displayed a yellow overheating warning sign. I waited a while before starting...

    I am replacing a 318is motor and I am not used to BMW at all being honest. Normally I see gaskets or RTV used, but I see the waterpump and cooling neck gaskets are all an o ring style. I am regasketing and cleaning the new motor for peace of mind but I don't know if I just lube these orings...

    Hi all, Sorry if this has been covered but i have used the search function to no avail! My car has sprung a leak and is leaking coolant from either the thermostat or my waterpump or one of the gaskets, it's kind of hard to tell! It had 103,000 miles on it and has not had a problem up until...

    Hey all, I changed my howling water pump yesterday, easy fix and went smoothly, all seemed great. Now today after 30mins of driving I come to a stop and notice whisps of steam from the engine bay, it only occurs when the engine is hot and you give it revs above 3-4k. So it's...

    Hi I plan on replacing my waterpump soon and doing some research on refitting it. How have you fitted yours? In TIS it shows a metal gasket which has to be removed by cutting a few tabs off with a cold chisel. My question is, is the new gasket the same metal one or rubber/paper? or leave it on...
