"HOW TO":
Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
4. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.


Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them

HOW SERPENTINE BELT IS REPLACE ON A 528I BMW


This was Posted under the Serpentine Belt Tool Category and not the Cars & Truck Category, delaying response. My apologies...
I do not know if you still need this information.
I also do not know what Year your BMW 528i is, as the 5-series were manufactured from 1997 thru 2004.
Click on the following Link. Regardless of your Year it should have the Diagram's and Photo's you need to Remove and Replace your Serpentine Belt, including the procedure in loosening the Tensioner.

My 1997 dodge caravan sport squeals all the time i got the belt changed but it still squeals


Check the deflection of the belt...When pressing on top of the belt - in general; should not flex any more than three quarters of an inch, up or down. If belt is too loose - tighten.

Another thing you can try is belt dressing; available at your local parts store.

If continues, remove belt and check the condition of idler pulleys.

HTH,

Tensioner not move what do i do 1999 dodge caravan


Here's how to get a serpentine belt on or off (You'll need to do both). It's easy and doesn't require a prybar.


On:
  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
  • Locate the tensioner pulley. It's one of the smaller ones and is mounted on a spring loaded arm. It's job, as the name suggests, is to keep the belt tight. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done
Off:
  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Locate the tensioner pulley. It's one of the smaller ones and is mounted on a spring loaded arm. It's job, as the name suggests, is to keep the belt tight. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt off one of the pulley's (A/C or Alternator is best)
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done
