95 325iS Radiator removal quick question. HELP pls.

Hey guys, I need to replace the radiator on my wife's 1995 325is as soon as possible. Do I NEED to remove the radiator fan off to get the radiator out? I just need to replace the radiator for now and maybe the hoses. Can I remove the radiator without taking the fan off? i don't have a 32mm wrench and I don't have a special radiator fan removal tool..

please let me know as soon as you can.

Thank you in advance

AJM

Yes, you can do it without removing the fan.

You can use a large set of channel lock plier instead of a 32mm spanner wrench. Its easier when you remove the fan as it gives tou more room to work.

+1 removing the fan will make this job quite a bit easier.
