Question / Picture refer for A/C Drier

Post by MrCouch » Tue May 15, 2018 2:20 pm

Hey guys, Could someone possibly snap a picture for me of the bracket that the A/C drier is held on to? I can't seem to find one and i believe the bracket is missing from the car that im working on. Also bonus if you guys know if the bracket is sold separately as a part that im able to get from BMW.

Thank you!

There is no bracket. The drier has a stud protruding from the bottom which goes through the bodywork and is held by a large washer and nut.

Thank you Ron, Im having trouble with locating where it mounts then, Underneath the washer fluid reservoir there isn't a location where the drier stud can be secured.

MrCouch, what year 6er are you working on :-k

Most likely makes a difference, my '80 does have a bracket that holds the drier in place :-?

10/84 Manual trans
Been a bit difficult working on it as its a 635csi built in 84 so some things are from early some from late.

Not sure if this will help, but you can see in this photo, the drier is held in place by a hoop type bracket, secured to the inner fender well, again this is vintage 1980 :-k

Also, here's a link to realoem, might want to take a look there for the MY you are trying to figure out 8)

Bobbo is correct. My car, an 81 euro, has that bracket and realoem show it as well through 82
