Official Tools for Hire Thread

Recommended Posts

I also wanted to avoid that method the first time I tried but my hand was forced and I've wondered why I bothered ever since.

Thanks for the advice Dave, appreciate it!

By the way I'm a fan of your E36 M3 (I'm normally not a E36 fan, but your car is always quite the standout!)

You'll laugh at this...

Hi guys,

Would anyone in the Auckland region have a fan clutch removal tool (E46 M3) I could hire?

^ 32mm spanner and mallet. It'll be off in 60 seconds.

Yeah I was trying to avoid that route with just the 32mm wrench and hammer and ensure I've got that holding tool on the water pump pulley but looks like I'll have to go there now.

Now I need one! :)

My belt is not holding the pump so the sledge method is not working (I've sprayed it with penetrating oil in the meantime).

Did you find one in the end? Anyone in Auckland (preferably the 'Shore) have one?

Ahaha! Just bad luck mate.. no I couldn't bring myself to swing that hammer! Haha

I'll have one in 3 days time, been busy all week caving so didn't get around to it..have a few other things I can do on the car without having to pull the fan out so will continue on that till holding tool arrives.

I could pass it onto you when I'm done?if that'll help you out?

Thanks for the offer Earon but I got it off this afternoon. I used a new method and braced one of the water pump nuts with a screwdriver to prevent the pump turning then whacked the 32 mm with the mallet, worked a treat.

Am enjoying your project, keep up the good work!

Wheel bolts/studs are 17mm so you probably have one already. Happy to lend you one if not.

All done. The oil plug bolt on the vw was so bad. It would warp when using monkey wrench or vice grip. Anyway i was able to borrow the right socket from a nice neighbour and its all done. Yay

I still live up the road from you don't I?

Who doesn't have a 17mm socket kicking around Lol! That's one of life's basic utensils, like a fork or can opener.
