Request for a picture of fan clutch tool
 
i was gonna make my own tool but was wondering if someone can provide a scan or a picture with some measurements of the holes that hold the fan. i know one is 32 mm but what is the one with the nuts like this picture

Just out of curiosity doesn't the e46 use an electric fan? I know my e30 uses a viscous clutch I just replaced it, but my 325ci has an electric fan, and no I'm not talking about the aux fan.

the automatic e46 uses a mechanical and the manuals have an electric.

i already have some spare sheet metal at home so i was going to try to diy

The top tool you have pictured has the notch to clear the shaft and the holes/slots to fit over a pair of the bolt heads so the pulley doesn't turn, allowing you to turn the 32mm nut on the fan clutch. The same thing can be achieved with a long screwdriver shaft, but not as elegantly!
