SOURCE: how to replace a serpentine belt on a 2004

  1. Lift the car so you can work from underneath when needed.
  2. Disconnect the battery . Just to be safe.
  3. Take the serpentine belt off.
  4. Remove the alternator.
  5. Remove the A/C compressor. (You can do it without removing, but it's a royal PITA... LOL) Don't unhook the lines, just unbolt and move out of the way.
  6. Remove the worn tensioner from t he block. (You need to unbolt the pulley first to get to all the tensioner bolts)

When do i need to replace the timing belt on my 1 series bmw diesel


I have no Idea on the BMW Diesel!... On the 2004 Hyundai Elantra, the belt is replaced every 60,000 mile or every 5 years -- whichever comes first.
