Is it the harmonic balancer or the water pump fan you are trying to take off. I know a lot of BMW use a left hand thread on the fan blade adapter you turn clockwise to open counter clock wise afterward to reattach the fan blade hub. There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate
