Whether you run the engine or use a torch, you run the risk of burns--you should be wearing long sleeves (cotton or wool, no synthetics--they melt!) and mechanics' gloves for this job if you're even the least bit clumsy. Helps avoid the near-inevitable bloodshed when it finally lets go, too.

Most penetrants will not work well in deep cold. Use the torch or the engine to warm the assembly before each application.

2003 330Ci Sport 5MT - Black Sapphire Metallic / Natural Brown / Myrtle + the important stuff
