    trying to change my bottom bracket and i need the tool to remove the non drive side. The nut appears to be that like a spanner nut. I am not sure of the exact tool number i need to purchase. Any help would be appreciated.

    What crank? You want the tool to remove the non-drive side crank arm or bottom bracket?

    Trying to remove the bottom bracket. It is a press fit type bottom bracket. The bike is a bb30 set-up. I have found a few press kits, but want to make sure i find the right one before buying.

    Here are the tools you need to remove and install Press Fit bottom bracket (PF30): Park Tool Co. BBT-90.3 : PressFit Bottom Bracket Bearing Tool Set : Bottom Bracket

    Very similar to the tools used to install and remove headset cups... and in fact you need a headset press along with the cups in this kit to do the install.
    The removal tool looks like the same one so if you have access to a headset cup removal tool it might work.

    Every bottom bracket standard requires specialized tools, so I don't think PF30 is that much worse than the others. I personally had to purchase tools for square taper and external BBs, but for press-fit I was able to make do with bearing cups and a headset press I already had so it was actually the cheapest one for me.
