don't do that if you don't know what you are doing under the car...
you can make a nice fire with that...
try pushing the car first...somebody can help to push back the car...
to change the starter you need max 2 hour...with the right tools
I just did today on my 540i...never did before on a 5 series...or V8
doesn't matter if the starter becomes some coolant or water...
maybe just happened on the same time with the coolant leak
on my starter was only a wiring problem on a ground cable and killed my starter
the ground wiring broke from the starter house and made some problems...
here is how can you change the starter...it's a 740i but the same engine
but...first try pushing!!!
