I have a 95 325i sedan with about 198,000 miles on it. Still runnin strong. I noticed for the past few days a loud belt like noise was comming from the engine. It went away so i thought nothing of it. Then today while i was on the beltway a loud clanking noise occured then i saw some piece fly from under my front left wheel and go tumbling down the beltway. I stoped and opened the hood and noticed that the wheel for the DRIVE BELT TENSIONER PULLEY was GONE!! I guess that was the piece that went flying. The car is still running and the belt still on but it looks like the belt is rubbing on a metal wheel like thing attached to the tensioner but the black pulley is gone. My question is that i obviously need to buy a new one but cant figure out exactly what i need. If i just need the pulley wheel itself or the whole tensioner with pulley?? The tensioner and all is still there but the wheel itself is gone. Do i need to replace the whole thing?? Can u guys help me out?? This is where i was looking

Wow I need a new tensioner pulley too, but mine hasn't flown off yet. Uhoh... it whines everymorning for a couple minutes, its been like that for a few months. Hmm..


Can you post a DIY when you get it done?
