Question about 1997 BMW 318
Your car is fitted with one very long belt which we call serpentine. Actually you cant adjust this belt as it has an automatic tensionner.
Try this, pour a little bit of water on the belt while the engine is running. If the noise stops then you know it's the belt which is noisy. If this is the case, a replacement of the belt is advised.
If not it means that probably the A/C compressor or the tensionner is faulty.
