I pulled my rad last night and found more dead insects than road debris between ac condenser and rad.

Anyway I need to fill it back up with coolant and was wondering if I have all the steps down.

1. Mix bmw antifreeze and distilled water 50/50
2. fill the reservoir until bobber sits flush with fill hole
3. start car, turn heat on full with fans low and let the car idle for 15 minutes while keeping an eye on temps.
4. close cap
5. go for drive

Is that it?

You got it! Next morning after cool and for the next few days after I would continue to check. You'll find a few ounces needed each day until it stabilizes!

Cheers

Is the coolant cap supposed to click when both arrows meet?
Arrows should align, yes that is the tightest.
