It's a major PITA.... the tool doesn't fit on the AC pulley perfectly. I really used it to leverage the belt up and over. You really need an extra set of hands to keep the tool on the AC pulley while you move the crank. You have to move the crank evenly and slowly.

My only other suggestion would be to talk to your local BMW dealer. They might let you talk to a mechanic for 5 min or so. The BMW dealer near me is pretty cool about stuff like that.
