In Reply to: e34 M5 Wheel Fans Removal posted by Brad on June 26, 1999 at 20:56:03:
The tool is a tripple square socket driver.
You can get them from Snap-On tools.
I beleive it is a 6mm tool number FTSM6E.
I ended up paying my mechanic $20. My points were facing back instead of forward and it was bugging me!
: Hey all,
: I just bought a set of these wheels, and wanted to know what socket is used to get the fans off. I thought it was torx, but on further inspection, it is not.
: Any help here would be appreciated!
: Feel free to e-mail me privately!
