Stuck bleeder screw on upper radiator hose? My video can help! And save $$$!

Hope my video helps with getting out your stuck bleeder screw and save you money by just buying the screw and not the whole upper radiator hose. (80$) DONT BUY AFTER MARKET PLASTIC SCREWS! Only OEM, around 6$.

Well yeah the Genuine BMW part is expensive. It's made by the OEM and resold by BMW. CRP is the OEM. If you buy direct from them then you get it for much cheaper. Buy online if you can help it. The dealer is for emergencies.
