As a cross reference, I came here to quote a diagram of the mechanical belt-drive system and was surprised I hadn't posted it here before.

So, for reference in the future, here it is (for my 2002 525i) from the threads:
- One users' example of total electrical failure (AAA towed away) alternator repair (1) (2)
- Video of cold idle engine squeal (1)
- Recommended parts list for a complete belt drive system overhaul (1)
