Hello and welcome to JustAnswer BMW,

Thanks.

 

You would need to jack up the car and remove the under body protection to access the hose, then replace the sensor. Should be straightforward once you are under the car.

 

I hope that is helpful, please let me know if you have further questions, or if I can clarify anything for you.

 

It has been my pleasure to help today and I wish you the best of luck with the vehicle.

It should just pull out or unscrew.

 

Please let me know if you have further questions.

I'm not talking about the sensor I'm talking about the plastic object that holds the sensor and is connected to the hose that somehow attaches to the radiator.
Expert:  Steve replied 3 years ago.

the sensor plugs directly into the hose.

 

the entire hose will need to be removed.

 

no special tools are required

 

Since I have answered your question, I would kindly ask that you please press "ACCEPT" so that I receive credit for doing so.
