  1. General E46 Forum
    I recently noticed that I have a loud squeal from a cold start on my 2001 330xi. I messed up swapping in a new coolant reservoir and got coolant on my belts, possibly could be related to that. Loud squeal on start but when warm it is way quieter but still there.

    Hey guys, I have a 2001 e46 with 150,000 miles. For a few months I've had this screeching sound coming from under the hood.

    Hey guys, long-time lurker. I know I don't post much, but I'm looking for some major help here. What I believe is my tensioner pulley fell out/broke off of my car and took a piece of whatever mounted it with it. I am wondering if it was connected to another part that can be replaced, such as a...
