Fantastic DIY video, thank you for posting this! I'll be going on a 700 mile road trip next weekend and need to do these and an expansion tank swap beforehand. It doesn't seem difficult at all, just timely. Quick question, can you purchase the tools for the fan clutch at a hardware store/harbor freight, or is that BMW specific?

Thanks! I'll add a link in the description for the tools, I got them on Amazon. They are BMW specific! I use them often on friends/family cars as well so were a good investment for me personally.

That'd be great, thank you! And I'm reading that removal of the fan clutch comes in handy for a list of different repairs, so this tool is looking like a worthwhile investment for sure.
