The neighbors are too busy thinking about my magic underwear.
Meanwhile, back on topic, after swearing for 5 hours at the mess of hoses and nearly impossible to reach clamps (I think there's a lot more crap in the way on the 335xi), I got the water pump and thermostat out.
I took the pump apart and I've attached some images of the internals.
The propeller looks good and it spins fine.
The plastic coating on the inner drum is cracked and I chipped off a piece revealing the metal drum underneath. Surely this would not cause the pump to fail. Anyone know how to test the pump on the bench?
