Auxillary Fan replacement

Our 530i started overheating when using the AC. Total cost to replace is $982.00, 400.00 of which is the part. I looked up the part on German auto and this is accurate. So the rest is labor. If I have the instrution i am capable of doing the work myself. My question is how difficult is it to replace?

I replaced mine a few months ago. it was easy but you will need a second person to help you with the bumper. Not that cant do it yourself but is easier to hold here and there while you do it.

took mi about 2 hours with preparation and cleaning after the job. You will have to remove front lights, and front bumper.
