About Cowl Top Ventilator Louvres
One of the most important components, whose function is to provide protection to the interior of a car’s engine compartment, is the cowl top panel ventilator. This is a panel that can be found at the bottom of the vehicle’s windscreen in close proximity to where the windscreen wipers are connected to the car. Whilst it is important that the cowl top panel prevents unwanted items of debris, such as mud, leaves and sticks from penetrating the engine compartment it is also important that it permits adequate ventilation.
The BMW driverside cowl top ventilator louvre provides this much needed ventilation on the driver’s side of the vehicle. It is able to achieve this because the BMW cowl top louvre on the driverside has a set of ventilation grilles cut into it. These are sufficiently small to prevent objects from getting inside the panel but large enough to allow air to get in and out.
If the BMW cowl top ventilator louvre on the driverside or the passengerside becomes damaged and begins to allow debris to infiltrate the engine compartment it should be replaced right away in order to prevent the consequential damage that might be caused to the engine and other mechanical components within the engine compartment.
- The BMW company was founded way back in 1916 and originally manufactured engines for planes. High demand for plane engines during WWI was good news for BMW, but they carried on making plane engines right up until 1945.
- The BMW M1 has a classic look, so it's no surprise that its designer also came up with some other amazing car designs. Giorgetto Giugiaro is also responsible for the DeLorean, the Beretta U22 Neos handgun, and the Nikon D4 camera! Although, he also designed the Yugo, commonly called the worst car that's ever been made.
- Did you know that BMW built a Lamborghini? The two popular companies decided to make a race car together, but Lamborghini pulled out during the manufacturing process. BMW carried on, and the final result was the original BMW M1 supercar.
- That distinctive BMW car engine sound that new owners fall in love with might not be real. The BMW M5 has such a quiet engine that they had to install fake engine noises to keep drivers happy!
- The BMW 3.0CSL was sold in the 70s and had the unusual addition of a spoiler that was kept in the boot. The owner could install it if they wanted to, but BMW couldn't sell the car with the spoiler attached because of road laws!
