Take a road trip down here to the Carolinas and we can tackle that OFHG and OPG at the same time. We will put it up on the Quick Jack and rip that thing apart and get 'er done!

All done. Here is my bounty of pulled parts today. Such an easy service, didn't even have to pull out the Quick Jack. But it is 95 degrees Fahrenheit with 47% humidity here in Charlotte today. It was hot couple of hours, even the tools sitting in the sun burned my hands.

I've had the same issue with sun baked tools. Keep the working parts you removed for emergency.

The expansion tank that was on there was an emergency 3 years ago when it burst on a Sunday and I had to be in Daytona the next day. My local Advanced Auto had the Dorman in stock so I put it on to get me on the road expecting it to fail in a month, year, 2 years. Nope still a perfect expansion tank but not Genuine BMW so in the trash can with the rest of the parts. $65 for 3 years is more than a satisfactory part from Dorman.

The thermostat was only a few years old but I did have a code earlier this year about the DME not being able to control the thermostat. I think tightening up the contacts fixed that issue but in my rear view mirror along with the ET. The Dorman AT thermostat broke on removal so really nothing to save but a couple of $30 hoses. All of it in the garbage.

It was many years ago so I am not sure. I am out of town for the next few days. When I get back I will take a look but I don't think I used the E-box for the ignition trigger. I think I did use the footwell lights for the other trigger.

I doubt I will run out the mileage on these now. Car idling in the driveway for 20 minutes with no aux fan running and the water temp is sitting right at 96C. Happy happy.

Composite impellers don't have any galvanic corrosion issues. My original lasted 262,000 miles before it finally started to leak. The impeller still looked good. Always stuck with the OEM coolant though.
