Check compatibility of gearbox ECM with gearbox. You will need the serial codes of the ECM and ask manufacturer for relative compatibility with gearbox type.

Maybe your indicator relay.
I'd check on your car users manual for fuse and relay layout and check to see if the fault is there.
Hope that helps

"Burned up 4 alternators" isn't a very helpful description, so what went wrong? Diodes? Regulator? Stator windings? Rotor windings?

A basic self-contained machine sensed alternator is almost bulletproof when the wiring is good and secure but they aren't tolerant of surges and they will surge whenever a good connection with the battery is lost while at speed.
An intermittent connection could be anywhere in the supply or ground and although rare an internal break in a cable, a poor connection inside a crimped terminal or even a bad connection inside the battery.

If the alternator is a smart charging type it adds new fault possibilities to those above.

Which engine is in it? Comment below and I'll try and find a diagram for it. First take lots of photos and notes before you start as reference for when you get stuck. (You will get stuck)! you might need to remove plastic guards, covers and some air intake pipes to gain access to some of the pulley wheels when putting the new one on. You will be working by feel only for some of this job so trace the route of the belt with your hand all the way around so you know where its supposed to go.
One of the pulleys the smooth side of the belt runs over is on a spring loaded tensioner arm. This needs to be swung against the spring to slacken the belt. Some engines have a slot or pair of holes you can line up and insert a pin to lock it in the 'slack' position. Again follow the belt around its whole length as you take it off to remind your self exactly where it goes. Fit the new one, this may take several attempts, and carefully release the tensioner.
A lot of companies recommend you change the tensioner as well. I agree as I've had one fail on me when my belt snapped. the tensioners just bolt into place and need to be fitted before you refit the new belt.
Once fitted, again trace it with your hand to check it is squarely set on all the pulley wheels, then start the car.
Then, KEEPING YOUR HANDS WELL CLEAR, look and check the belt is moving smoothly on all the pulleys you can see and not sliding from side to side. Check the dash board for any warning lights or messages and turn the engine off. Refit any pipes, guards and covers, recheck for any warning lights and messages on the dashboard and that should be job done!

You need a vehicle handbook pertinent to both the vehicle trim level and the territory into which it was exported.

Replacement original literature should be available to order from the local dealer.

For 2003-2006 X3 models, BMW specified an ever changing list of automatic transmission fluids (ATF) as these fluids became obsolete over time. The current recommendation from BMW is DEXRON-VI ATF, which means the fluid conforms to the GM DEXRON-VI specification.Feb 19, 2013
