replace oil separator on BMW E46 N42 motor 318i 2003 right hand drive
this video demonstrates how to dismantle the engine components to get to the part. which seems to be buried under everything (well done geniuses). it takes about 20-25 minutes with full focus, of course the video takes longer with explanation.
why would you change it . if your BMW engine is sounding like a diesel engine then that’s a good reason. If you leave it in too long, pretty soon it will start to sound like you have blown a bearing in the generator. good luck i hope it serves a useful.
please give it a thumbs up
