    For the fan, aside from being a left-handed thread as Gloff mentioned, I have found that a rubber mallet with a 32mm wrench (either the BMW fan clutch tool or a large crescent wrench) makes it very easy to pop the thing loose. Assuming there's a belt still in there, anyway.

          Ha, yeah the new forum software takes some getting used to.

          Maybe I will look into a UV dye test too, since I am not sure where my little leak is coming from after changing the gaskets.

            the UV dye was pretty effective and kept me from tearing the front of the engine off. in this instance i'm just having them do it. i know this is an easy DIY but i've hit these guys up for a bunch of advice in other areas recently and don't mind showing some appreciation.
