I know about the quote feature; but I only recently learned about the multi-quote '' doohickey!

In addition, I just learned from this thread today of a NEW counterhold tool that holds the waterpump bolts steady by enveloping them on three sides:
- E39 (1997 - 2003) > e39 fan clutch removal, need help
  • Performance Tool W80585 Ford Fan Clutch Wrench Set
  • 2-1/4" wide X 2-1/2" long (length to opening)
You can buy it on Ebay ...

The beauty of this counterhold tool is that it appears to be even simpler to fabricate than the BMW-specific counterhold tool!

Now what we need are the measurements for the rectangular cutout.
