My dad also has a 330i but he has an auto trans. How difficult is it to pull the fan off of the front? I know you need a special tool but is it that much more difficult than a manual trans version?

I'll purchase from BMW, then. I'll work on that freaking block drain today and see if I can't get it. I need an impact wrench, it would be so easy.
