    BMW E90 Water Pumps

    When maintained, your BMW's cooling system should be bulletproof. The weakest link on any BMW model is likely to be the water pump, thermostat, or electrical parts on the newer models. BMW water pumps have gone through many design and material changes over the years in an effort to make the cooling system more efficient and reduce parasitic drag on the engine. The water pumps we sell are the latest and best designs that BMW and OEM suppliers can produce. Whenever possible we prefer to sell a water pump with a composite impeller, not metal. The latest BMW designs use a composite impeller that is far lighter than metal and much stronger than plastic. Metal impeller pumps are typically heavier and may have bearing problems that lead to premature leaks. Plastic pumps were infamous in the mid-1990s for disintegrating. The composite impellers have proven themselves for over a decade as a trouble-free and efficient design and many of the OEM suppliers are also introducing updated composite designs for older models too.

    These aluminum water pump screws are single use and must be replaced each time they are removed. These are used on all 325i, 328i, and 330i with the BMW N51 N52 and N53 engines. They were also used on some early N54 engines that have rubber mounts on the water pump housing. Do not use these bolts if your N54 water pump has been replaced with a housing that does not have the rubber mounts.

    This is the mounting bolt used for the water pump on all N55 engines as well as later (updated) N54 engines. These are sold per bolt and 3 are required for mounting the water pump.

    This is a new and revised bolt design to match the updated water pump (p/n 11517632426). BMW changed the design for the N55 and all subsequent replacement N54 pumps. The updated pump does not use a rubber isolator in the mounting flange. The previous water pump did have this rubber mount and required a longer bolt. The new bolts are also zinc-coated grade 8.8 steel instead of aluminum. That means the new bolts are re-usable instead of 1-time use like the old design.

    Sold per bolt. 3 are usually required for the N54/N55 water pump.

    Don't take your car's cooling system for granted. A waterpump failure can cost you an engine, which is why preventatively replacing your BMWs waterpump and refreshing the cooling system every 60,000 miles.

    Upgrade from the plastic impeller on the stock water pump to this aluminum impeller pump originally developed by BMW for the M3 GT4. This aluminum water pump was designed to stand up to the abuse of racing but can be used on a standard street car. Plastic impellers are earlier BMW's had a tendency to degrade over time and eventually break apart. While we have not seen this issue on the S65 engine as yet, why not get some piece of mind with this original BMW aluminum impeller water pump.

    The N54/N55's water pump is central to the car's cooling system as well as to the performance and fuel economy. BMW's engine efficiency design for these cars includes the water pump for balancing engine power output and efficiency and cooling responsibilities not only for the engine but also for the turbo(s) and transmission cooling. It's a very integral part of the engine. The N54/N55 engined cars already suffer from reduced cooling area because of the factory intercooler, tight space under the hood, and of course heat from the turbo(s). BMW addressed these challenges a number of ways, including a dynamic, 'smart' electric water pump with increased output compared to the N52. The cooling demands mean additional stress on the major cooling components, especially the water pump.

    The N54/N55 water pump is electrically driven and varies output based on instructions from the engine computer. Under the best circumstances the pump drives only as much coolant as needed and will shut down or activate as load and performance demands change (combustion chamber temperatures are dynamically changed based on economy, normal, and performance demands). The pump can also run when the car is off to reduce heat soak in the engine and turbo(s). The water pump is now a factor in how much power and fuel economy your car is producing, making it all the more critical to replace during normal maintenance. If a fault or excessive temperature is reached, the dash cluster will display a yellow or red water temp icon depending on the severity of the condition. The car's electronics will begin shutting down various systems in the car to divert more resources to the cooling system. This can include reducing power output and activating 'limp mode'.

    The best way to avoid problems and system failures? Preventative maintenance and overhaul of the cooling system, starting with the water pump (and thermostat).

    This OEM VDO water pump is the latest design and replaces part number 11 51 7 563 659 (11517563659). It fits all cars with the N54 or N55 engine. Replacement of the aluminum mounting screws is required when changing the water pump (select from the options below). Proper bleeding procedures specific to the electric water pump should also be followed.

    This item fits the following BMWs:
    2008+ E82 BMW 135i 1M Coupe
    2007+ E90 BMW 335i 335xi 335i xDrive - Sedan

    This packages covers the major components you would install along with a new water pump or thermostat. On the N54 cars (135i, 335i, 535i) the water pump and theremostat are mounted together. In fact, to get to the thermostat, BMW expects you to remove the water pump. This package covers the whole job. With the electric water pump now an integral part of the efficiency and performance of the engine, staying on top of its maintenance and replacement is the smart thing to do.

    Our water pump/thermostat overhaul includes:
  • OEM VDO electric water pump, p/n 11517588885 or 11517632426
  • aluminum mounting screws for water pump (set of 3), p/n 11517602123
  • OEM Behr thermostat, p/n 11537549476
  • Original BMW connecting hose from thermostat to water pump, p/n 11537545665
  • OEM-style hose clamps for hose (x 2)


    The water pump on the N54 engine has more cooling responsibilities than ever before. Not only must it provide cooling for the engine, but it's also pumping fluid used to cool the turbocharger oil and automatic transmission oil. The good news is that the pump only works when, and only as much, as it needs to. The engine computer dictates how much fluid needs to be pumped through the system depending on the load. That means the system can actually stop the pump when warmer temperatures are needed. No longer is the pump spinning all the time from an engine-driven belt. The bad news is that it's now an electrical part, so a failure is usually immediate and with no warning. And if the electronics are at fault, there is no way to rebuild or repair it. Fortunately, the engine computer will force a shut down or reduce power if a problem occurs, preventing catastrophic engine damage.

    How to avoid a water pump failure in the future? Replacing the water pump as part of a regular interval schedule will ensure you always have a functioning pump in place. Since this technology is relatively new for BMW, therefore the lifecycle of the pump isn't yet known, we have been recommending replacement every 80-100k miles. This package of OE/OEM parts covers everything with Original BMW coolant offered to finish off the job. A proper bleeding procedure must be followed with the new electric pump.

    This water pump package fits the following BMWs with the N54 engine:
    2007-2010 E60 BMW 535i 535xi 535i xDrive
    2008-2010 E82 BMW 135i
