    i am trying to replace the Crank position sensor on my 1998 E55,.
    after a struggle i got out the single tork bolt which holds the sensor in place,.
    Great i thought,.the hard job done,.i went to pull out the sensor only to find that it would not move and it seems to be seized solid in position,.
    i have soaked it over night with wd40 hoping to loosing it,but it still refuses to budge,.can any one help please with ideas on how to remove it without causing damage.

    You could spray the bell housing area with pipe freezer from plumbers merchants, it works like heat in reverse, shock
