Thanks!!! I know it was "weird" but it worked!!
I did all the work on the car. Have a friend who runs a indy shop that I help with tough BMW related issues and in turn I get use of the shop for the bigger jobs and his expertise on the more difficult fixes such as FCAB replacement we did last Friday. Xi FCABs do not come installed in carrier and without his help I would have probably been stuck or struggling for quite a while. Still took time without presses, but we managed to replace both and they work great. When replacing the blower motor a few months ago, we wanted to find a way to avoid all the issues and pitfalls I've read about in other posts (and the time it takes them to complete fix). We found the answer! Remove the valve cover (which needed to be done anyway) and the motor was removed and new one installed in about 10 minutes....
William (my mechanic buddy) is a huge asset and definitely makes working on the car a whole lot easier.
