Replacing the water pump: help & tools?

I'm going to do my water pump, wp pulley, and belts.

using part

  1. 11-51-7-527-910 (oem reman kevlar pump)
  2. belts (continental stock)
  3. new pulley bolts
  4. 11511436590 (new wp pulley stock)
  5. ....(do i need fan clutch tools?)


I looked at the procedure in TIS and it kinda skips over some steps.


I need help understanding what need to be done. i see some write ups saying lift the the engine... others say nothing about it. TIS says lift the engine withe some oddball tool.

i am 100% open to any advice,

Thanks

You can get the fan clutch assembly off without a tool but it's an acquired skill of using a large screwdriver to trap two of the nuts while using a very larger wrench (I think 32mm but don't quote me) to break loose the nut.

I've got a 2000 z3 w/2.5 engine and did my water pump and thermostat 2 weeks ago. Not sure if the engines are the same. I know I tried the screw driver and 32mm wrench with hammer until I was blue in the face and the fan nut never moved. I had to take the water pump with the fan blade attached off(not an easy job), then I put the water pump in a vice and I still took a lot of beating with the hammer to get it off. Had to replace the water pump when I was finished. It had been replaced before so maybe it was tightened to much, not sure. They make a tool to hold the fan blade while you turn the nut counter clockwise. If I have to ever do it again I WILL have that tool. They have them on ebay.
I would also replace the thermostat at the same time.

I just ordered the water pumo tool on ebay. It comes with a super wrench.
