I NEED TO CHANGE MY THERMOSTAT ON MY 528I BMW 1997 AND I DONT REALLY
KNOW HOW IVE TRYED TO FIND A SERVICE MANUAL BUT I CANT FIND ONE UNDER
100.00 I THINK YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE FAN COVER AND MAYBE THE FAN
BECAUSE YOU CANT GET TO THE THERMOSTAT OTHERWISE. AND I HAVE THE COVER
LOOSE BUT THE FAN IS IN THE WAY AND I DONT KNOW HOW TO GET IT OFF DOES
ANY ONE KNOW HOW
Leroy - despite having a broken CAPS LOCK - that "bud" is named
Jennifer.. and perhaps she might be able to use some help.
Jennifer - if you really are a Jennifer, just let people know where you
are and you'll have BMW boys crawling all over themselves offering to
give you some assistance. It isn't a task I'd suggest for someone who
has never done this sort of job before.. especially since the E39 is a
difficult car to bleed all the air out of the system when you're done.
How long have you been using Usenet 'admin'? It is not uncommon for people
use their friends/girlfriends/wife's account to send posts. And the huge
majority never use their real names.
It's strange that you were unable to tell 'her' how to remove the fan!
Well, 'jennifer', a slim 32mm spanner and a hammer. Of course, hit it
clockwise, as the fan has left hand thread. If 'admin' knew this, I would
have no doubt he would have said so. Happy now 'admin'?
Actually - since it was Arpanet. You can Google that to find out how
long that is. Hint Leroy, I first read Usenet postings on a TI Silent-700.
What someone wants to use as their account name or if they use someone
else's really isn't germane.. what is - you ASSUMED that because it was
a question about fixing a car the person was a "bud"..
Why would I bother - I was calling YOU an asshole.. not her.
As has been said before - and I'm sure fairly often to you.. you really
are a nerk Leroy.
usenet groups didn't start on the arpanet; they were originally carried
exclusively over uucp (hence the usenet name). Were they *ever* carried
over the old arpanet? I though that they didn't leave usenet until NNTP
showed up, which was after the arpanet had morphed into the Internet.
I'll see your Silent-700 and raise you an asr33.
Usenet was started in 1979 as a "poor man's Arpanet" by Tom Truscott,
Jim Ellis and Steve Belovin to share information via E-mail and message
"boards" between Duke University and U of North Carolina. It used dialup
connections and UUCP protocol under Berkeley UNIX distributions. I'll
raise you a Silent-300 (which weighed just a bit over 40lbs I believe..
and that was a "portable"..)
