2002 525XI, need to replace both CV half shafts. YouTube

Customer Question

2002 525XI, need to replace both CV half shafts. YouTube suggests it is hard to remove the rotor hubs. Is this job a big deal? Just replaced a Subaru shaft, piece of cake. Tricks? Tips? Potential potholes to avoid? Special tools? Lastly, should I change struts at same time, any advantage to doing that at the same time?

I can provide the factory BMW instructions for this (many many pages of PDFs with images and all preliminary steps). However, I cannot post this information publically for obvious reasons, but I can email it to you. The site imposes a mandatory additional charge for email, but I can set it to the lowest allowable amount to simply enable you to share your email address with me.
