Alright so im on the home stretch of having a running bmw again, engine is in, almost everything is almost hooked up.

here is the question

How do you get the fan clutch off, ive read in the haynes manual that is left threaded?

all my efforts to seize it have failed.

thanks for the help (in advance)

-Casey

It is left hand tread, the quick way to get it off is with the belt still on get a good 32mm spanner (you may need to grind it down a bit they need to be thin) put it the nut of the coupling and hit the top of the spanner hard to shock it undone, one good thump normally dose it. There is a special tool which is a piece of flat bar with two hole that fit over the water pump pulley bolts, you could make one if you really need to.

A cheap solution is to head down to your local bicycle shop and ask for a 32mm crank wrench. I paid about $10 for one, but only because I didn't feel like shopping around.

Like bad man working said, get it on the nut solidly, and whack the top end of that bitch with a hammer a couple of times. Watch out for the fan though! It also helps to push down a little bit on the belt to stop the pulley from spinning.
