  1. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    My E83 had the passenger occupancy sensor replaced under recall two years ago, just prior to me purchasing the car. I'm now experiencing an issue where the seat belt beeper is sounding, indicating someone is in the passenger seat, even when the seat is completely empty (no items placed on the...
  2. General BMW Questions
    Ok I'm guessing this has been covered before but I want to ask what you guys think about this. So I have a road car which is mainly used on weekends and some drift/hill climb events and is equipped with fixed bucket seats, 4 point harness & 4 point roll bar. Now my question is, which is...

    Hello Folks, I recently got my oil pan gasket replaced since it was leaking a lot. Ever since the repair was done, I am hearing squeal from the idler pulley/serpentine belt area. I had replaced the serpentine belt, idler and tensioner assembly a year ago. The repair shop says that the oil pan...

    I am suspecting this Contitech belt is counterfeit. 1. A white label with the belt size affixed over the packaging 2. Fraying on border of the belt Anyone with similar experiences?
  8. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    I have searched but no success. Could somebody show a diagram of auxiliary (serpentine) belts for the n62b48 E63. PS I have found many for E60, E70, X5 but not for E63 with n62b48.... :dunno: I am looking for the Idler Pulley and the Tensioner Pulleys especially.

    Hello all :) - - - - - -----> 1996 520i M52B20 EUROPEAN I have been reading the pdfs and DIY available here, and I am thinking about replacing the belts myself. I have never taken the fan off, but I am getting a 32 mm open wrench today and using the "maybe" "controversial" hammer...

    Hello , so i have this problem with my BMW e39 525 tds 105 kw, 143ps. So i changed the belt, the little roll, steering pump, water pump and the alternator. But my car still is not tunning properly. Everytime I steer , the battery light comes on and the battery is not charging, the belt starts...

    2000 E39 528i 6cyl- My main belt broke today (pump/alt/crank), so I installed a new one. Not too hard. Started the car and after about 10s had to turn it off. I noticed the radiator fan/pulley assembly basically rocking /tipping front to back and clunking as it did. What I could really see is...

    Hi all, My AC compressor on my 07 530xi is making some funky noises, and I think the pulley bearing is toast. Instead of replacing the entire compressor, I'm going to order just the pulley assembly and try to get that on. Unfortunately, I've only found the part available in Europe... for the...

    I have a whirring sound coming from the engine that is definitely RPM related but I can't figure out where its coming from. I suspect its a belt but when I look they all appear ok and in good shape. I sprayed some belt conditioner on them to no affect. 88K mi FYI. Is it possible its the belt...

    I have a leak in my oil filter housing gasket and BMW claimed that the oil is dripping onto my belt causing it to slip. The tech showed it to me in person and there was some oil on the belt but when I checked on my own multiple times later there was never anything there. I'm going to get my oil...

    - Ever wondered where did that missing parts gone from a worn out belt??? :) (and eventually not just the missing ones goes there the whole material from the grooves) --- - Oh that's easy: It's just falls off and goes away like small dust. No? :dunno: - Yes mostly but not all. It seems that we...
  16. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Was having serious idle looping issues with this M20. Finally figured out it was a coolant bubble at the sensor in the thermostat housing. This morn, the GF started it and it did that power steering howl you sometimes get at start-up, but it just keeps going. Plenty of nasty fluid in there...

    Hello. So I am new to this forum. I have a 2006 325i BMW E46. The serpentine belt broke. I replaced the belt, but now the car will not start. Luckily I was in my driveway when this happened. I have ran a diagnostic test on the car. It is throwing these codes: p0341: camshaft position sensor...

    The M62 engine accessory drive is the same as on the M60. There are 2 maintenance free belts: Belt 1: Crankshaft to A/C Compressor Belt 2: Crankshaft to water pump, alternator, and power steering pump The tension pulleys continue to be made of high stress plastic
