Need RTAB help NOW Georgia!

***First off, if you are north of atlanta and willing to come help me, and we get them done, $100 dollars will be in your pocket when you leave. ***

So im trying to do my passenger side RTAB. The car is an 04 M3 with 130K miles and I dont think they have ever been changed. They are practically seized on.

I have been using the method shown here with no success. http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=404524

I have gotten the metal nut from the inside of the tabs out but I cant get the rest of the rubber from the outside. I have tried just about everything I can think of except for the designated RTAB tool.


Please help!!

Ive heard that you can just drill the remaining rubber out.

If youre lucky you can, but mine were in there so tight that I had to have the tool. Luckily another member on M3 forum was able to get me the tool yesterday and I got it all done! That tool is a MUST!!
