I am replacing the cylinder

Customer Question

I am replacing the cylinder head on a 316i. there is a set of 4 separate cables on the inlet side, one of which obviously reaches the thermostat housing. I am left with two further 3 socket connectors, one of which has an "elbow" socket, and one 2-socket connector (Alternator?) There is a further 2-socket connector under the inlet manifold for which I have yet to find a home. Can you please assist my failing memory. (I preferred working on AC Aces - the wiring was not a headache!)

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Let me know. Thanks.

Your request for further information and the car registration took just too long. I had waited in good faith, but in the end I had to find the answer to my question elsewhere.


I would appreciate the return of the £14.00 I sent.
