According to Chilton you do not have to remove the manifold. or the
You do have to remove fuel lines, the strut supporting the intake manifold,
the dipstick tube and it's support, the airflow meter and air filter
It really pays to get yourself a book if you're going to work on the car.
I hate to ding your choice of manuals, but if one is only going to have one
reference manual for his BMW, it should be one from Robert Bentley
Publishers. It is clear and concise. The pictures and diagrams actually
match that which is found while working on the car.
I agree with your point though ...
I agree with you completely regarding the Bentley manuals ..... but.
My car is a '91 318is which I love dearly except for the fact that it is a
real orphan when it comes to repair manuals. An e30 chassis with an e36
engine and who knows about the in between things.
So I have the e30 manual from Bentley, a pdf version of the Bentley e36
manual that I found on the internet, and I bought the Chilton manual because
it said it covered 1989 through 1998 3 series but it doesn't really do
justice to any of them.
