Your alternator belt will be routed one of these two ways, depending on wether or not you have a auxiliary tensioning roller or not. Installation of an alternator belt - a107cc9.pngf55072f.png

Alternator belt layout

Go to and look up your vehicle. The parts diagram shows the routing of the belt.
This is important because on your car, it is possible to put the belt on wrong.

On a '98 six cylinder, I think it will only fit one way, so you can't get it wrong.
Look up your car on and it should show the shape of the belt when it is installed.

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

Look up your car on 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).

Could you please send me a diagram for the alternater belt on a 2004 bmw 320d. Thank you.

It will only go on two ways. One way spins the alternator backwards. If you look at the fan on the alternator, you should be able to figure out which way it is supposed to spin.
Also, go to and put in your body style (e46) and model. Browse Parts, choose Engine and then Belt Drive. You will see an image of the belts and pulleys that shows how it should look.
