Sounds like the aduster /tensioner is worn or weak if you dont have a jack or some decent tools you may be better calling out a mobile mechanic

How to replace water pump on japanese 1996 bmw 318i


u will have to 1st remove the clutch fan, and losen the belt by turning the tensioner,then remove the fan shroud,this will allow you to remove the fan completely,then once the fan is removed this will allow you ful access to the water pump.at times the pump will be seized onto the engine block so it may require some shaking back and forth.once removed,you can use a thin coat of vascaline to seat the new gasket onto the new pump...good luck.

How do i take the belts of the bottom puly on a bmw 328i to change the fan belts


You did not mention the year, but in general, you pop the plastic dust cap off the center of the pulley and use an allan wrench or socket, whatever fits the bolt in the center of the pulley, to twist the pully assembly to compress the spring so the belt slips off. Some tensioners have a hole that you can slip a nail into to hold them retracted until the new belt is in place.

The waterpump on a chevy suburban can be removed once you remove the radiator fan.
  1. Drain the coolant from the system.
  2. Here is a way to remove the fan clutch withouy a fan clutch tool. The trick is to leave the belt on and tight.
  3. Take a 1 7/16 inch wrench and put it behind the fan onto the big shaft nut attaching the fan to the water pump. P
  4. ut it straight up and crack it counterclockwise with a hammer.
  5. This should loosen the nut.
  6. After that just spin the fan off and the rest is easy.
  7. Make sure you clean the old seal off of the engine. It is small and easy to miss.
  8. remove the serpentine belt.
  9. remove the hoses connecting to the water pump
  10. remove 4 bolts holding the water pump onto the block
  11. clean the block of any old gasket

Hi i am struggling to install bmw 316 fanbelt?


it is hard to change a fan belt, coz you need to take off the radiator first to have a better view on the belt. then take off the fan it self then you need to loose all the belt tensioners there's 3 of them.

How do i tension the cam belt on my e36 318i bmw?


to do it correctly you need a tension gauge, however it is possible without. make sure your timing marks are correct,flywheel locked and camshaft locking tool in place. slacken camshaft sprocket bolt and turn clockwise to stop. fit timing belt in an anticlockwise direction starting at the crankshaft, ensure belt is taught on the non tensioned side between sprockets. turn tensioner pully anticlockwise, untill you can turn belt 90 degrees with finger and thumb pressure. tighten tensioner. tighten camshaft sproket bolt to 63nm. Remove all locking tools. turn engine 2 revolutions from the crankshaft pulley by hand. DO NOT START AT THIS STAGE!!!!!!!! refit all locking tools, if at any stage the engine locks or the tools will not refit, you have done something wrong. Go back to stage one. Check belt tension finger and thumb method, retension as required. turn again by hand. re fit all components and start. If you have whining noises the tension is too tight. Flapping or banging noises too loose. This is not a fool proof method and you have to be aware of the failings of fitting timing belts without the correct tools etc. ENGINE DAMAGE WILL OCCUR IF FITTED INCORRECTLY. A good garage should charge no more than 2.5 hours for this work to be carried out, with a warranty. Hope this helps

Take off water pump


Dis-connect battery, drain coolant, remove fan & radiator cowling ( fan coupling has a left hand thread ) undo 4 x retaining bolts in water pump housing. To get the pump out, you may have to tap it slightly & lever it about as the body fits inside an alloy casting. Before you refit, make sure the housing the pump fit into it clean & free from corrosion or pitting by cleaning with some medium to fine abrasive paper. Put some grease ( not sealer ) around the new pump seal & refit everything else. Remember to bleed the air out of the cooling system before driving. Hope this helps & good luck !
