Anyone done an alternator bracket oil gasket on an E63/E64?

Even if you didn't document, has anyone here done this job on a 650i? Looking for moral support.

I have not but have seen links for it here. It looks like a big job, but is doable at home if you have the time

I have done it on a 05 645. Pretty much the same job.

Pretty sure you cannot change the alternator seal without lifting the engine. There is no clearance to remove the rear Allen or nut holding the power steering pump. Taking the bracket off without removing the engine mount is highly unlikely because the engine mount bolts go thru the alternator bracket. Also, all the seals,that I have changed, had to be chipped out of the bracket because, they had turned as hard as plastic.
