This radiator package for the 1999-4/2005 E46 323i/325i/328i/330i manual transmission cars is just what you need when replacing the radiator and nothing more. Why spend more for a larger package when you only need the basics? This kit includes what you need when replacing the radiator -
- OEM type Behr radiator, #17119071518
- Upper radiator hose, #17127510952
- Lower radiator hose, #11531436408
- Temp sensor, #13621433077
- Radiator mounting bracket o-ring, #17111711987
There are other kits out there that include additional cooling system parts. But when you only need to replace the radiator, this is a more appropriate package. With these parts you only need to disconnect the minimum number of parts to swap out the radiator - each hose from the thermostat and the mounting plate from the radiator. The water pump, thermostat, and expansion tank all remain in place. We can also build you a custom package with a discount for any additional parts you need.
The radiator in this kit is made by OEM-supplier Behr Hella. Behr supplies radiators and other cooling components to BMW but is not the actual OEM supplier for this radiator (Modine is). But we like the drain plug design better on the Behr radiator than the original. Instead of the fussy "adjustment screw" drain plug, the Behr uses a standardized plug. And since Behr is an OEM supplier for other radiators we feel confident in their quality.
If your hoses are only a few years old they may not need to be replaced. However, the spring clip wears out over time and re-using the hose with the old clip may not have adequate tension to seal on the new radiator. To prevent a leak post-install we have included new hoses in this package.
The o-ring in this package is for the mounting plate for the expansion tank. When removing the plate from the radiator this o-ring should be replaced.
BMW coolant is sold separately (or purchase it locally to save on shipping).
This package fits cars with manual transmission only.
