This is a great CDV delete DIY. I just did a clutch slave cylinder replacement write up and linked your CDV delete thread to it, incase people want to kill two birds with one stone.

Same thing happened to me today. I finally got under my car to pull the CDV and it wasn't there . I think there was someone else on here that said their 2001 330ci didn't have one either, so maybe no 2001's have CDV's. I still changed out the brake fluid and bled out the clutch slave cylinder which made a huge improvement in the clutch pedal. It seems to shift much smoother now.

In which parts did you have problem? Didn't part number 14 fit with part n. 12 without part n. 15?

It replaces original CDV and is totally unrestricted:

"Replacement of the valve with the no-restriction replacement Unlock Valve in these cars results in very crisp and firm shifts. With the lightweight flywheel, the engagement is so positive and quick that passengers are pushed into the seat with greater force than ever before. Installation is as simple as unscrewing the original lock valve from the slave cylinder line, replacing it with the Unlock Valve, and bleeding the slave hydraulics."
