Ello all, my car is running a little cool the temp gauge never reaching the middle just sits slightly to the left. The heater blows hot and im still getting 40+ mpg so im guessing its nothing too drastic just the stat needing changing. Its 2005 e46 320d 6 speed, 94k with FSH inspection 2 at 71k (take it the thermo isnt changed in that?).
Ive changed the EGR thermostat as it was pretty easy to get too and its not made a difference so ive ruled that one out.
Trouble is im finding it really difficult to find a guide on how to remove the coolant thermostat, i have the BMW manual but this starts talking about removing belts which i really dont want to get into if possible, but ive seen people on the forums talking about you just need to remove the EGR valve. The problem is any guides a do find tend to be a different engine layout to mine.
I rang BMW to see out of curisouty how much it would be to save myself the hassle and they quoted £300 so unless i want to eat beans for the next 3 months i could do with finding a step by step - can anyone help has anyone done this?
