2001 530I radiator replacement

Hey Everyone,

My luck...... I pick up a 2001 530I that my wife wanted, and now a couple of months later teh plastic cracked around the upper hose.
The radiator was easy to get, but replacing it seems to be a bear.
Anyone have any instructions on how to do this?

Thanks,

John

See this...

ENTIRE COOLING SYSTEM REPLACEMENT Tips and Tricks (Very Long, Enjoy!)

John - I would recommend two things: first, pick up a Bentley's repair manual. Not cheap, but worth every penny. Second, join the bmwe39 Yahoo group. There is deep and plentiful advice to be had there.

I'm doing a preventive replacement on mine tomorrow @154K...also doing the thermostat, water pump and PS hoses.

Good luck!
Bob
