BMW E39 540

Removed the driveshaft, gearbox, exhaust and loosened the engine harness from the chassis.

We kept the AC-compressor “in the car” aswell as the headers on the engine, this turned out to be really tight.
Had to remove the radiator, engine mounts, aswell as right side engine mount bracket

(AC-pump to keep the pressure of the system)
For this we loosened first the AC-compressor, and when the engine was a bit up, the engine mount bracket (kept on the engine by the oil dipstick)

You can’t access the engine mount bracket without the compressor removed, and it can’t be removed without removing the oil dipstick.
