I took my 1998 540i in to get a AC system recharge and they told me my serpentine belt is cracked. I haven't actually seen this myself(the top of the belt looks fine but i know the cracks would be on the underside) but it hasn't been replaced in a long time as far as i know and my car has 144768 miles on it so i am going to by a new one and replace it regardless of how damaged if any the belt really is.
I've searched this website, youtube, and google and i can't find a reliable source or direct do it yourself link that refers to my actual make/model and if anyone could give me directions and the special tool and part numbers i would greatly appreciate it.
I've replaced several other parts under the hood and its been a while since. This is the one i am actually having trouble learning about!
Any help i would appreciate it, i work for the Air Force and I'm very busy most of the week so anything to get me going on this project would be amazing.
Thanks in advance,
