DIY N52 Belt replacement on E83

This should help anyone with a belt replacement with a N52 motor on E83 (2007+). This process is to replace the belt, tensioner and idler pulley. Parts come in a nice kit - $120-$150 depending on vendor.

Shouldn't take you more then 30min-1hr.

Enjoy.

Look for a guide for M54. It was fitted to E39, E46, E83 among others.

No m54 motor has 2 belts. There are many DIY for that motor on the site.
