E36 Fan Removal Tool

Does anyone have one of these I can borrow for a period of time, or does anyone have any tips on how they removed their fan without the tool? (maybe a wrench with a pipe on the handle so it's long enough?)

thanks

ok i'll try again
it's a royal bugger though getting into that small space, but maybe it's because i'm using the wrong size wrench.

thanks for the tip with the 26

I just did it last weekend to replace my thermostat. Its a 32mm wrench. If anyone you know is into biking, they should have a 32mm headset wrench that will work perfectly. I had to hold onto the water pump pulley by jaming a screwdriver shaft across the bolts.

I have the tool (just not in my possession at the moment), and as previously mentioned, the nuts is a 32mm, and coincidentally I just happened to have a 32mm thin headset spanner (for my bike tools).

With my mom's e34, I have no problem using a screwdriver to hold the pulley, but with my car it's so tight there that I just went and bought the tool.
