Removing and installing/replacing water
pump (N52K)

Warning!

Danger of scalding!

Only perform this work after engine has cooled down.

Recycling:

Catch and dispose of drained coolant in a suitable container.

Observe country-specific waste-disposal regulations.

Important!

If a water pump that has already been operated is reused, it
must be filled with coolant immediately after removal.

Mixture ratio, water : coolant = 1 : 1

Protect plug connections against coolant and contamination.

Cover plug connections with suitable materials.

Important!

Aluminium-magnesium materials.

No steel screws/bolts may be used due to the threat of
electrochemical corrosion.

A magnesium crankcase requires aluminium screws/bolts
exclusively.

Aluminium screws/bolts must be replaced each time they are 
released.

The end faces of aluminium screws/bolts are painted blue for
the purposes of reliable identification.
