    General E46 Forum
    I need to replace the belt tensioner and idler pulley on my automatic e46. Bavauto sells a serpentine belt overhaul kit that contains both belts and tensioners, as well as the idler pulley for $150. Since it'll be a slight PITA to access the belts and pulleys, I'd like to replace all the parts...
  3. 328i transmission slipping after DIYs

    General E46 Forum
    Hi ;) I changed the oil filter housing and serpentine belt a week ago and I'm starting to have some problems. The oil filter housing was leaking and I just figured that I'd change the belt since I have no idea of the maintenence history of the car. It's a 2000 328i with steptronic...
  4. Belt?

    ///M3 Forum
    Hey guys, I recently went to an independant mechanic for state inspection and the guy looked under the hood and said my engine belt is cracking and will need to be replaced soon. My thing is, what is the engine belt? I've read a lot and there are different belts on the engine and none are...
  5. Melted airbox after fitting alternator

    General E46 Forum
    I fitted a new alternator to my 52 plate e46 the weekend, after a day or so since then it's has been running rough so I dug around today looking for split hoses and found something much worse. It seems when I fitted the airbox back on I didn't fit it properly and the belt has been rubbing...
  6. What broke my serpentine belt?

    General E46 Forum
    I've seen no problems with the car, but then last night I pulled into the driveway, turned it off for 60 seconds, turned it back on, and snap goes my serpentine belt. I don't know how old it was but it didn't look really worn out enough to break. I'm guessing a pulley locked up, but all of them...
  7. Is this belt too long? What am I doing wrong here?

    General E46 Forum
    So the car is a 2002 325Ci Convertible, I lost the AC belt while driving down the highway, along with the idle pulley. Replaced the idle pulley and belt, but now it seems the belt is too long. The part number for the belt is: 605k6 and I have verified this part number is written on the actual...

    Recently my car started making a squealing noise and I narrowed it to the front of the car where my belts are. pouring a little bit of water made the noise go very quiet but still noticeable. I removed my serpentine belt and played around with the pulleys to make sure they were smooth and...

  10. Red battery light on

    General E46 Forum
    My red battery dash light just came on while driving. Stereo and A/C still work, steering is not very stiff. I have a ScanGuageII and the volts are reading 11.8 but I don't know if this reads just the battery or the battery and alternator. I also used some belt conditioner before driving and...

    General E46 Forum
    So my serpentine belt started with a really annoying squeak that gets louder as the motor revs. My first though was a bearing is bad, I replaced the water pump, rebuilt alternator, replaced the idler pulley, the tensioner pulley, and the I disassembled the power steering pump and everything...
  12. Thoughts on Seat Belt Shoulder Pads?

    General E46 Forum
    Hey guys, it's my friend's birthday and since he has a Mazdaspeed Rx-8, I decided to buy him some Mazda stuff including seat belt pads. It got me wondering, what are your thoughts on seat belt shoulder pads? I'm not talking about Tiddy bears (youtube it if you haven't heard), but ones that look...
  13. Whining noise when cold and when steering.

    General E46 Forum
    I think I know what the problem is here from reading other posts but I was hoping that some of you could validate my suspicion. 2000 BMW 323i. In the morning when I start the car and head out, there is a whining noise when I steer, and sometimes right after I fire it up and am not steering...
  14. Belts

    General E46 Forum
    Hello guys, I think got the belts with pulley replaced about 30K miles ago, however dont remember exactly. Just have a few questions 1. What is the safe life of the belts? 2. How dangerous it is if they break on the road (My understanding is, you can still drive the car and get them...
  15. Summer maintenance. Time to do water pump?

    General E46 Forum
    So I have a an e46 with the original water pump and expansion tank. I have a 167000 km on the car so I'm sure it's overdue for a new one. I don't have any problems for now. But I'm sure they will soon appear. Based on what I've read, it sounds like I have to replace more than just the water...
  16. How do I change the serpentine belt with a hydrolic tensioner?

    General E46 Forum
    I was in the middle of replacing my fan clutch and thought it would be a good time to change my belts. all I had to do for the ac belt was use a T50 on the pulley and turn then the belt came right off. The other belt however is different than any of the DIYs I have seen. It looks like I have...

    General E46 Forum
    I failed my state inspection the other day and that started an onslaught of upgrades and maintenance. I just finished replacing 02 sensors, control arms and filters ect… but now there is a high pitched sound during idle. My first instinct is that it’s a belt (It sounds just like it) but I know...

    Hey all, New to bmw with a 00 328i, and so far I have just replaced a control arm, cam pos sensor, and oil.

  19. I Broke this Engine Compartment Bolt!!!

    General E46 Forum
    My lame A$$ was "attempting" to replace both belts under the hood and I mistakenly turned the wrong bolt clockwise thinking it was the tensioned. I do not know what this bolt holds but the pic included shows where it is (directly obove the ratchet under the small circular dust cap). What did I...
  20. Pulley/tensioner problem?

    Driveline, Engine & DME Tuning
    I've searched these forums but I can't find a solution to this problem. It seems like other people with a sound coming from the alternator belt area have it during start up. For my car, I have no problem when I start it in the mornings. I have problem in the afternoons after work. I can also...
