SOURCE: BMW 318i M46 belt tensioning



adjust ur belt by following steps
now that you know where the components are these components are driven by a belt. So when you turn your AC on there’s a belt that’s driving the AC compressor, when you turn the stirring wheel and you have that nice that easy feel of turning the stirring wheel when you’re parallel parking your car that’s the power stirring pump doing its job. Your alternator is keeping the battery charged, the lights on and the engine running. So I want to show you where the belts are, what they look like, how to adjust them and how to tell a bad belt from a good belt. As you can see these are your drive belts, this is the AC drive belt it drives the AC compressor, this is the alternator drive belt it drives the alternator, if you look down here you can see this is where the adjustment is on that AC compressor belt, if you look right here this is the top adjusting bolt for adjusting the alternator either up or down to tighten or loosen the belt. There’s a bolt down here that locks the alternator in place and this bolt is the pivot bolt for the alternator. So if you’re going to let’s say remove your alternator belt you’d have to remove these covers, loosen this bolt, loosen this bolt that’s underneath this cover and adjust this bolt to either lower the alternator or raise the alternator, if you’re belt was too loose you’ll pull up on the alternator, if the belt was too tight you’ll

My bmw 318i air con fanbelt broke how urgent is this


Are you sure that the belt only turns the AC compressor? Be sure that it's not also connected to the fan and the power steering pump. If it's only turning the air conditioning compressor then you can live with it for as long as you can live without air conditioning.

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.

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.
