Hey sorry for the late response... the genuine PN that I purchased through the dealer was 64118372797... they had a unit on-hand. It was manufactured by Bosch and featured the removable fin wheels. Only one had to come off to facilitate installation.

Although I haven't heard from anyone else that this PN changed from year to year on the E46, its always a good idea to use www.realoem.com and search for PNs on your precise build date or your precise VIN. Best of luck... this is pricey but so far is very very worth it.

The blades/fin wheels are installed onto the ends of the motor's axle with a simple clip that slides off when pressure is applied. Come to think of it, I only removed the left fin wheel (all that is necessary) and I didn't even try the right one, so I guess I can't speak to the right side authoritatively.
