Charging Malfunction BMW 2006


I would be checking the belt for condition and tension but I suspect that with the smell that the belt will need replacing. The only thing to cause the belt problem would be a failed (seized ) steering pump so when you have the belt off see if you turn the pump pulley by hand . As the belt will drive the alternator (battery light) also It points to the belt and the only real load is the pump when you turn the wheel

Hesitation on Startup. Battery & Alternator are good. Fuel related? Spark plugs?


If you are saying it takes a long time to start the engine, have you checked fuel pressure before and after cranking ?

Is the battery original from the factory-replace it ?

If not -- test it

Test the Alternator after you confirm the battery
is capable of taking a charge & holding it

Then after the battery & alternator issues, if any-- are resolved,
check for codes again

Use a scan tool to retrieve all codes & write them down
BEFORE you ever disconnect the battery

I need the alternator / fan serpentine belt diagram for my 2002 bmw 325I. Thankyou


Look up your car on RealOEM.com. It shows the belt shape when installed.
Good that you asked. I understand that it is physically possible to get it to fit with the alternator spinning backwards.
I presume that you just replaced belts and pulleys. A 2003 would be about due.
Be glad you don't have a 330 rather than a 325. The 330 is just enough tighter space to make the job about four times as difficult. (I have both).

The belt on the damper looks misplace like is going to go out of place in a BMW 325i 2006. Thanks for your help


You are talking about the serpentine belt that drives the alternator, or the one that drives the air conditioner compressor, correct?
This can be caused by a missing bushing or a loose bolt on the alternator or compressor or power steering pump. It is more likely a failing tensioner or tensioner pulley bearing. On this car, BMW sells the tensioner assemblies complete with pulleys. They don't sell just the pulleys, which are the part that usually fails first.
Unless you have unusually high miles, this car is a little 'young' for a tensioner or pulley to be worn out. Has anyone worked on the car who may have left something loose or missing?

Richard, a 93 BMW 325i has timing chain and not a belt. Unless it has been absolutely neglected in terms of oil changes, the chain should last 2-300k miles
