Thanks Michel,
I do have a hand impact wrench so, if the alternator I buy needs me to switch pulleys, I will do that. I do have small pulley removal tools (the basic toolbox stuff) which also might work.

The reference to that particular kit came up merely by me googling for the part number "BMW 12 7 110". I'll try again right now ... I see Samstag has the special tool 127 110; oh ... it's not a pulley removal tool at all ... it's just a thin socket ... BMW P/N 90 88 6 127 110 (my mistake ... sorry ... I was tired after a dozen hours working on the E39 and still being frustrated).

I guess the important thing is that I have a 24mm socket wrench.

BTW, they sell 18mm solid clamps at that Samstag sales site; I wonder what the diameter of the power-steering hose is (it's about an inch which would be 25mm). It sure would be nice to have a source for those clamps in quantities of a handful.
