Thermostat Advice please!

Post by esuohdica »

Hi All,

I have now just received the second incorrect thermostat housing in the mail!

The first one was for the wrong engine type (never trust the ebay vehicle selector)!

Anyway, the current one looks identical, apart from the actual thermostat, which is slightly shorter,, so it won't ever close the flow off!!

Please can some one let me know what i'm doing wrong!?

Buying from Ebay is fraught with risk! Try your local German & Swedish - their prices are not much different from Ebay, and you will not be stung for postage.
A Z3 is not just for Christmas - it's for life!

Thanks for the reply!

Apparently this is normal that the new design thermostat will be shorter than the original.
I've had someone else confirm this and I've now fitted the new one and all works just fine!

Thanks Mark.
