Has anyone changed all the coolant hoses (i beleive there are seven of them) on an E36 coupe? I know the upper and lower are no brainers but I am not even sure i can locate some of the others, let alone have access to them. Do you need to remove the intake manifold for access? Any help/ info greatly appreciated

Thanks

ive done it a few times on my own car as well as customers shops...and your right there are about 7 of them...and if i remember correctly about 4 of them are beneath the intake manifold. if you dont know how to remove it just take it to a mechanic.

fruityone is right, its alot of work. we put mine on before we dropped the new
engine in, so i wont be much help. but i will say, make sure u hook the right
plug in the right hole.
and yes, they r under the manifold. have fun, and get some beers to help you.

Come on now guys.. Its only hoses, not like I am removing camshafts without the special tool mystery tool from BMW. The real question is do you need to remove the manifold, which of course requires removing all the plastic cowling by the wipers. Seems with a little struggling and maybe just removing the windshield wiper cowling I cam get access to all the hoses.. Does anyone know?

From my perspective, if this was a dealer job, between the hoses and labor it would be 800 bucks or more so I know someone out there has gotten dinged that hard for hoses and would remember, or if they havn't then i have to beleive that BMW makes the best hoses on earth or that even the stealers dont charge for intake removal. Anyone out there have any experiences?

thanks
