Question about BMW 323
It would be easier if I knew what model and year. Most every car nowadays has an tension pulley. You can release tension be using a ratchet, usually 3/8 drive. The pulley will have a square opening in the middle of it. Put the ratchet in it and turn it to release tension on the belt. Under the hood by the radiator (for most cars) there will be a diagram for the belt or you can find it on the internet by putting in the year, make and model as well as the engine size. This may also get you specific instructions for your car. There may be other factors but without knowing what you are replacing the belt on I can only give general info. Check all your pulleys as well. If any of them are off center or wobble they might just chew up your new belt also.
