I understand your frustration and I truly appreciate your very well done DIY threads.
In my case a 90 degree pick is the first thing I tried and it was a no go.
So I moved to something with a little more controlled force.

You can leave the drive-shaft in, but it's a lot harder.

OahuMPower,
Thanks for posting your DIY link. I'm going to try removing and replacing the seal and coupler today or tomorrow. I hope the pin slides out easily on mine. Also, found this link on replacing the shaft seal http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum....php?t=1444627 and to just put the new seal over the old. Is there anything bad that may come out of doing this?

Mahalo
