Product Details

This cooling overhaul will cover just about everything you could replace on the 535's cooling system. We start with the basic water pump and thermostat bundle. These are already vital to the health and durability of the N54 engine. But to properly maintain these cars for the long term, the rest of the cooling system must be refreshed and preventatively replaced. Here you can add a radiator, expansion tank, 535 cooling hoses, and the BMW antifreeze. This package fits 535 with a manual transmission.

The sophisticated electronics of the ECU and water pump means catastrophic overheating should be a thing of the past. But the downside is that the electronics can shut down without any warning or symptoms. And troubleshooting is equally frustrating since the water pump electronics are not readable or serviceable. There are several clues to a faulty thermostat or water pump - the fan runs at full speed all the time (even immediately on a cold start), pending (soft) fault code for low coolant flow, or the water pump can be heard running constantly. But when the pump fails it's an immediate shut down of the engine which can be a major inconvenience and lead to additional repairs that might have been avoided with preventative maintance. We recommend a full cooling system overhaul on the E60 535 every 80-90,000 miles and to check for soft/pending codes at every 5,000 mile service .

Base Cooling Overhaul Package includes:
+ Genuine BMW electric water pump, p/n 11517588885 or 11517632426
+ 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 transmission oil. The good news is that the pump only works when, and only as much, as it needs to. That means the system can actually stop the pump when it doesn't need to be running. The bad news is that it's now an electrical part, so a failure is usually immediate and with no warning. The preventative replacement is your only insurance from a very inconvenient and costly breakdown in the future. Plus you get the very latest BMW water pump design with any improvements they've made since your original pump was installed.

Cooling Hoses
With regular driving the hoses should last a very long time. Even the plastic connectors seem to be holding up well. But as a preventative measure new hoses are recommended. We have also seen issues with re-using hoses as the spring connectors get weak over time and may not have the strength to hold the hose in place. They seem to have a tough time holding tension especially when they have been removed and reinstalled. In the interests of a thorough overhaul we recommend replacing these 335 water hoses during this job (see diagram):
  • 17127560968, upper radiator/radiator vent hose
  • 17127565075, lower radiator hose
  • 17127560973, return hose
