    Fan clutch spanner m104 m119 m120

    Not the usual fare for this section, but a very useful special tool for an irritating job. As MB special tools are usually crazy expensive, this seems like a bargain at £6.25 inc delivery. Not original MB but should do the job. Bergen 65mm Fan Clutch Hub Spanner, for MERCEDES AT174 | eBay
