Crank Seal Tool (DFW)

Does anyone around the Dallas/Ft. Worth area have a crank seal tool for an N54 they are willing to loan/sell? Would like to go the DIY route on this job. Thanks!

Call all of the Euro shops near you. I've rented the tool from a euro shop near me. It was about 60 bucks to rent it. Or they even have the tool on eBay for about $200.
Why did your Belt break in the first place? There's no point in renting the tool if it's just going to keep breaking on you. I didn't address the root problem of why my belt was breaking so I ended up having to replace the belt three times. I could have just purchased the tool for that price.

Turns out it was an oil filter housing gasket leak that my friend misdiagnosed it as a crank seal, which I had a feeling was the case. All is well and squared away. Thanks for chiming in, I'll definitely keep that in mind for future reference!
