Coolant Change


Recommended Posts

Just had the e12 serviced at dealer in Derby and they told me I need a coolant change at a cost of £70!

I dont think so, only cost £16 for the coolant to do it myself, BUT

Can someone tell me where the drain plug is as i dont want to take off any more of the underbody shielding than I have to :thumbsup:

Any other advice welcome as I havent done this before.

You also have to drain the block. Exhaust side of the engine towards the gearbox end you'll see a drain plug has a small down-sout with a bolt through the middle of it. Undo the bolt from the middle and it'll drain out.

Pretty much has to be done from above so no underskirting to be removed. Taking the plastic head cover off the top should help you reach it easier
