Question about BMW 3 Series

Open Question

Hello! I wish to change my Aux./Serpentine/Belt on BMW 318TDS E36 I think M51 or M41. I think I can use a Draper Expert Part SBSK15 but do not know how to change it using this tool. Last time I use a Spring Compressor and sockets, but this is the tool used for this use. Draper do not tell you how to do it! Can you help, thx Adrian

Remove the cam cover, remove the spark plugs, turn the engine to number 1 TDC, put a pencil in spark plug hole number one and twist the crank back and forth and make doubly sure you are at TDC. Now loosen the four bolts at the front of each cam sprocket, check TDC again with the pencil and rocking the crank, now take the pencil and lay it across the flats at the back of each cam. Twist the cams very carefully so that the pencil sits flat on each cam square. Snug up the sprocket bolts and use the pencil to check TDC again! Now check the cams again. Repeat the procedure until you have the cams flat and the engine at TDC.

SOURCE: procedure to change serpentine belt 2006 toyota tacoma?

On my 2005 Tacoma with the 4.0L V6, I found it easier to change the belt from under the truck. Just remove the skid pan. Plenty of room to install the belt. The tensioner pulley is the one at about 2-o'clock from the crankshaft with the belt nearly all the way around it.

Removal and installation of serpentine belt pully on bmw 318 i


I suggest visit this links with interesting information about this job:
- E36-Belt-Replacement/E36-Belt-Replacement

You have to find your belt tensioner, pop the cover off of it, hook a socket and ratchet to it and move it to release the tension off of the belt. While you are holding the belt tensioner, you can slip the belt off of one of the pulleys and then release the tensioner.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

My K reg BMW E36 1.6 has a squeaking belt. How do I cure it?


they have "belt dressing" that you can buy from Advance Auto Parts, it'll grease the belt and rotors and provide lubrication. make sure you start your car up before using it. spray on the belt and try to spray the grooves as well. or, go to a nearby auto shop, buy yourself a belt (serpentine, or V) and replace. i reccomend Dayco since they provide you with routing diagrams on the back. Goodluck

Fig. 4: Timing belt arrangement engine

BMW recommends that the timing belt be changed every second Inspection ii, or every 4 years on cars that have low mileage. Most of the rest of the industry has timing belt changing intervals ranging from 40,000 miles to 60,000 miles. It is better to change the belt at a lower mileage than at a higher number.
The timing belt must be replaced every time the belt tensioner is loosened. Do not reinstall a used belt. Reusing a timing belt, even one with low mileage, is not worth the chance of having a belt break and damaging the engine.

Good luck.
