I have a 2007 328xi. I'm not sure how similar it is compared to 2006 but I am having trouble removing the first house. There is a giant bar (already removed sway bar) that is preventing me to access the hose. Anyone have any steps (as detailed or with pictures if possible) that can help? Thank you

This forum was a great help with this project! Thanks all for the comments, the DIYs, and all the great support.

It took me about 4 hours start to finish...including the bath and eye wash with antifreeze.
I have a 2007 328xi and I have trouble removing the first pipe. There is a huge bar (not swaybar) right under the water pump that's making everything difficult. Is there anyway I can get around this or remove this? Thanks.

Same story with water pump

I had my water pump fail on my 2006 325xi about two weeks ago (on Saturday) just outside of Fort Wayne, IN with 69,835 miles. Same story; the yellow temp indicator came on and 10 seconds later, it turned red. Got the side of the road and called Cross Country Roadside Assistance for BMW owners. They were there in about one hour and they carried my 325xi to Tomkinson BMW.

On Monday, they diagnosed it as the water pump and had me back on the road by early afternoon. They did a great job. The parts are guaranteed for two years.
Since I plan on keeping this vehicle, I hope the replacement pump is more reliable.

However, the pump and bolt cost me considerably more ($74) than the MSRP for these parts. I figured that I would be paying the MSRP but when it was higher, I was shocked.
I am happy with the repair service but am unhappy with the greed of Tomkinson's parts department.

Water Pump

Mine failed at 63K so replaced it along with the thermostat.
