e60 water leak

Post by terryr » 16 Mar 2013, 18:17

my e60 went for a service yesterday and there was a small drip coming from the rad on the passenger side ,but its really hard to determine where its coming from ,i was thinking it maybe something to do with the oil cooler.the actuall rad looks mint ,but all the rads sit in a cradle and it does look like a right pig to get out ,anyone else had any problems

Which model is it mate? And are you sure it's the rad - as opposed to that's where the water is ending up. I guess more importantly - are you losing coolant?

I'm confused!! (Easily done.

E60 is a mid 2000s 5 series? I'm pretty sure they didn't make a 323!!
