Oh yes!.....HAD to do that on other BMW applications. That's one of the sockets needed to replace the input seal in paralever rear drives.That big nut is pretty thin also and the socket has to be ground. Also if you want to remove fork caps on the later Telelevers, same socket. Very handy....!

Easy to find anyway, that's an automotive "Axle nut socket".
Have tools, will travel!
