Work On BMW Vehicles? New Snap-on Tool A Must Have

Snap-onRemoving the radiator coolant reservoir cap on a BMW vehicle can be a challenge because the cap is fastened tightly and is difficult to remove by hand. The new Snap-on Radiator Coolant Reservoir Cap Removal Tool (RCR1) is a time saver, making removal of the cap much easier for Snap-on customers that service BMW vehicles.

“It can be a stubborn task to take off the radiator coolant reservoir cap on a BMW,” said Brian Woller, product manager for Snap-on. “Our new RCR1 tool is specifically designed for simple cap removal without the damage pliers can cause. The RCR1 tool fits directly over the cap and has a 3/8” drive allowing a ratchet to be attached, which provides more leverage to get the job done. This ‘must have’ tool is another example of Snap-on meeting the specific needs of its customers with a specialty tool that improves productivity and makes life easier in the service bay.”

Made of nylon, the new Snap-on Radiator Coolant Reservoir Cap Removal Tool (RCR1) will not mar the reservoir cap and is ideal for servicing 2006 to present BMW vehicles.

Customers can learn more about the new Snap-on Radiator Coolant Reservoir Cap Removal Tool (RCR1) by contacting their participating Snap-on franchisee or representative, visiting www.snapon.com/handtools or by calling toll free 877-SNAPON-4 (877-762-7664).
