DIY - Replace Water Pump and T-stat, 335xi

DIY - Replace Water Pump and T-stat, 335xi

I didn't find any "xi" specific DIY on this, so thought I would contribute to the community. This DIY cost me $525 in parts (waterpump, t-stat, aluminum bolts, and 1-gal of coolant). See the attached pdf file. N54, thermostat, E90, water pump.

feel free to PM or post with questions

I was looking for a DIY on the 335xi before I did mine. However, I did do it a little different. I didn't touch anything under the hood except to add coolant when I was done. I also didn't remove the fan, any wheels (car was on ramps) or lining around the wheel. I did remove the steel belly pan to gain access to the back of the pump from under the car.

Approx how long did it take you for your method? I have a a lift I can use so if it saved time and was easier to access I would do that

I followed everything in his PDF document starting at page 8. I put the car up on ramps instead of jack stands. I also removed the steel pan under the back of the engine for access to the back of the water pump (for removing/adding hose clamps). It is a tight squeeze getting the pump in and out between the subframe and the fan housing. But it certainly fit without removing all that stuff in the beginning of the DIY.

I'm not trying to take anything away from his DIY. He obviously spent time putting together a detailed DIY to help other forum members (much appreciated!!). He just spent some additional time removing other items to give himself better access to the water pump location.

Guys just a heads up, if you do some searching you can get all the parts necessary for under $400. (and yes, new parts)
