    E30 Models



    S14 Engine
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Drain the cooling system.
    2.  
    3. Remove the fan. The fan must be held stationary on tool 11 5 030 or some sort of flat-bladed tool cut to fit over the hub and drilled to fit over 2 of the studs on the front of the pulley. Remove the fan coupling nut; left hand thread-turn clockwise to remove.
    4.  
    5. Remove the belt and pulley.
    6.  
    7. Disconnect the hoses from the water pump. Remove the 7 mounting bolts and remove the water pump.
    8.  

    To install:

    1. Clean the gasket surfaces and use a new gasket.
    2.  
    3. Install the water pump in position. Torque M8 bolts to 16-17 ft. lbs. (20-24 Nm) and M6 bolts to 6-7 ft. lbs. (8-10 Nm).
    4.  
    5. Connect the hoses.
    6.  
    7. Install the pulley and tighten the bolts to 6-7 ft. lbs. (8-10 Nm). Install the belt and tighten. Install the fan.
    8.  
    9. Add coolant and bleed the cooling system. Connect the negative battery terminal.
    10.  

    E36 Models



    1. Note the radio security code and disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2.  
    3. Place a suitable drain pan under the vehicle.
    4.  
    5. Remove the radiator drain plug and drain the coolant into a sealable container.
    6.  
    7. Remove the engine block drain plug located just below the exhaust manifold and drain the coolant into a sealable container.
    8.  
    9. Remove the engine cooling fan and shroud as outlined in this section.
    10.  
    11. Loosen but do not fully remove the water pump pulley bolts.
    12.  
    13. Label the direction of the drive belt(s), then remove the belt(s). Inspect and replace as necessary.
    14.  
    15. Remove the water pump pulley bolts, then remove the pulley.
    16.  
    17. Carefully remove all of the water pump mounting bolts using a crisscross pattern. As the bolts may have corroded in place, spray them with a light coating of a penetrating lubricant and use 6 point wrenches or sockets during removal.
    18.  
    19. Apply an anti-seizing compound to two 6 x 1.0 x40mm bolts and thread them into the top and bottom threaded holes in the water pump housing. Thread the bolts lightly until they are seated. Then, alternately turn each bolt one turn at a time to extract the water pump. Watch the water pump as it is being removed. It should come straight out of the engine block. If the pump cocks to one side, loosen that removal bolt and tap the pump inward until its mating surface is parallel with the block.

      Negative battery cable
       
      With an upper fan cowl, fan cowl
       
      Air cleaner housing complete with the air flow sensor, if necessary
       
      On M62B44 4.4L and M73B54 5.4L engines, coolant hoses from the upper water pump housing
       
      Fan clutch mounting nut from the water pump shaft. The shaft uses left-hand threads; thus the nut is turned clockwise to remove.
       
      Accessory drive belt
       
      Fasteners securing the pulley to the water pump
       
      Water pump mounting bolts

    7. Install or disconnect the following:
      NOTE
      The water pump spindle threads for the cooling fan and fan clutch assembly are left hand threads hence the fan clutch assembly must be rotated counterclockwise to install. As there is a minimum amount of clearance between the water pump and the radiator assembly, rotating the fan clutch assembly to install it onto the water pump spindle may be difficult. To assist with the installation of the fan clutch assembly, use a piece of thin, sturdy string about 3 feet (1 meter) long. Wind the string around the fan clutch mounting nut in a clockwise direction 15-20 revolutions. Position the fan clutch assembly on the water pump spindle squarely and while holding the fan, slowly pull the string to spin the fan clutch mounting nut in a counterclockwise direction. Once the nut begins to thread onto the water pump spindle, remove the remainder of the string.

    4.  


    NOTE
    The water pump spindle threads for the cooling fan and fan clutch assembly are left hand threads hence the fan clutch assembly must be rotated counterclockwise to install. As there is a minimum amount of clearance between the water pump and the radiator assembly, rotating the fan clutch assembly to install it onto the water pump spindle may be difficult. To assist with the installation of the fan clutch assembly, use a piece of thin, sturdy string about 3 feet (1 meter) long. Wind the string around the fan clutch mounting nut in a clockwise direction 15-20 revolutions. Position the fan clutch assembly on the water pump spindle squarely and while holding the fan, slowly pull the string to spin the fan clutch mounting nut in a counterclockwise direction. Once the nut begins to thread onto the water pump spindle, remove the remainder of the string.

    1. Install or connect the following:

      Fan clutch assembly using tool No. 11-5-040. Nut: 29 ft. lbs. (40 Nm). If using the fan tool, torque the nut to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm); as the additional length of the tool multiplies the torque to achieve 29 ft. lbs. (40 Nm) at the nut.
       
      The remaining components are installed in the reverse order from which they were removed
       

    2.  
    3. Fill the cooling system.
    4.  
    5. Start the engine and check for leaks.
    6.  


    NOTE
    It may be necessary to bleed the cooling system a second time once the engine has been started.

    1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
    2.  
    3. Drain the cooling system.
    4.  
    5. Remove or disconnect the following:
