Question about 1989 BMW 3 Series

SOURCE: need to install belt
i made this with paint. hope it helps. typically on a bmw the belt goes between the water pump and crank pulley to the tensioner; if this is a 99 to 06 ish 3 series and some 5 s you will be good

Below are diagrams for both the M44 and the M50 engines. On the M44, you may need to hold the tensioner in the retracted position with a drill bit or hex tool through the hole in the front of the tensioner. The belt tensioner is automatic so no tightening is necessary. Best of luck!
