Hi there:
I suggest visit this links with interesting information about this job:
- E36-Belt-Replacement/E36-Belt-Replacement

You have to find your belt tensioner, pop the cover off of it, hook a socket and ratchet to it and move it to release the tension off of the belt. While you are holding the belt tensioner, you can slip the belt off of one of the pulleys and then release the tensioner.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

SOURCE: BMW 318i M46 belt tensioning

The tensioner is spring loaded, and no adjustment is provided, or required.


But if for some, to me, unfathomable reason, the belt should become loose, causing slippage, I can think of only 3 possible causes:
1. Someone, unknowingly removed and replaced the belt incorrectly, by MISROUTING the belt on the pulleys.
2. Someone, unknowingly replaced the belt with one of the wrong size.
3. One of the belt driven components [water pump, alternator, smog air pump, power steering pump, air conditioning compressor, etc.] has been replaced with a new unit which has a different sized pulley than the one replaced.
4. The tensioning SPRING in the auto tensioning arm has become weak, and if so the arm assembly must be replaced.
As i said earlier, there is no provision for adjustment, as the tensioner arm assembly is supposed to automatically maintain the proper tension.

HOPE MY INFO FIX YOUR PROBLEM.
Thanx for using fixya.
Have a nice day.
