    Hi, The crankshaft pulley on my wife's 2010 118d E87 went and I'm in the process of changing it but I can't get the cooling fan out. It looks like it's stuck with the part shown in the picture. I assume that this part was hit by the pulley which pushed it against the fan and is locking it in...
