This 32-mm, thin profile open end wrench is used to remove the themo-viscous fan clutch from many BMWs. This is required for fan clutch replacement, water pump service and many other front engine repair tasks. The total length is 15". Thickness is 5/16" (8-mm). Please note that many of these fan clutch units utilize left-hand threads. Please ensure that you are applying force in the correct direction. Typical installations require a matching holder for the water-pump side of the interface. We suggest B8800031.
Bavarian Autosport served the needs of BMW and MINI enthusiasts from 1974-2019. In 2019, ECS Tuning acquired the Bavarian Autosport brand, committing to continuing the tradition of excellence Bav Auto is known for. Over the years, Bav developed its own brand of parts, accessories, and upgrades. A lot of these parts are engineered and built by OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers – companies who make original parts for BMW, MINI, and other European marques). Just as BMW and MINI do, we work with a variety of manufacturers in Europe, Asia, and North America. In many cases, we have sourced parts that are superior to Original Equipment.
A lot of time and resources have been put into developing and evaluating these products, as well as the companies who produce them. We stand behind every product we sell. If any product fails to meet our standards — or our customers' expectations — we won't sell it, and we're certainly not going to put the Bavarian Autosport name on it. In fact, we're so confident in the quality of these parts that we back every Bavarian Autosport brand part with a 2-year warranty.
