I bought a used one online that looked perfect, but the actual plastic guide that makes contact with the chain was subtly different and unusable. Can anyone identify which model this part is for? Here is...

    Hi, I'm looking to get a 1 Series petrol and have been looking at the 116i 2.0 2010, however after looking online it seems the engine which is an N43 has a common issue with the timing tensioner and timing chain. Are there any models that do not have the issue?

    My E46 has been experiencing a rattle or chirp noise from the engine on cold starts and has become more noticeable in the last few days. The noise will go away once the engine is warm, usually after 10 mins. This morning when I was going to work it was noticeable and lasted about 10 mins. The...

    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...

    Hello fellow Bimmers. Well I'll get straight to the point.. I'm having an issue taking off the AC belt. I have read online that there should be a tensioner of some kind. I have easily located the ones for the alternator and power steering but when reading online it will say that "the process...
  12. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I'm trying to replace a failed alternator on my 96 328is with a new one I purchased online. I got to the step where I now need to turn the tensioner so I can remove the belt. From everything I found online the removal is supposed to be done with a 16mm socket. When I attempted to use the 16mm...

    Hi all. I'm new here. I thought this would be a great place to possibly help me sort this out. I took my car in today because the steering has been less responsive than normal and I noticed a "clicking" type of sound if I jolt the wheel. I took it to a German auto mechanic and he said it is my...
