. How would you diagnose this issue with surgical precision? Inside this tank were numerous pieces of the coolant level switch. Glad we could help get you the right parts and help with the installation. When the belts are back on, is adjusting the tension on the belts necessary? I have purchased alot of parts from your store, but this belt doesn't even fit correctly on my tensioner and going somewhere else must of been a mistake lol.

Txs October 31, 2010 Followup from the Pelican Staff: Sorry, I don't. See my earlier response regarding the noise. Is it hard to replace where does it connect? I don't think it has a torx fastener on it though - I'm almost certain you're looking at an idler pulley there, not the tensioner. It was fairly obvious which pulley was the tensioner. I don't suppose there's a special tool that puts the lever arm closer to the fastener head? To start viewing messages, select the forum that you want to visit from the selection below.

October 19, 2013 Followup from the Pelican Staff: There may be a locking bolt that holds the tensioer in place, if you don't have a spring loaded tensioner. The 13x800mm nor 13x825mm belt wont fit. The fan is attached to the water pump - I would probably pull the pump and take a closer look. March 8, 2011 Followup from the Pelican Staff: Sorry, I'll have to admit I have limited experience so far with the modern E90 cars. Engine noise does seem to be pretty loud, but thats kind always been like that. If you can get the compressor to the end stop and the belt will not fit, it may be the wrong belt.

If so, this has been wrong for 105K miles! Do u think if I replaced the belts that the coolant will flow through the engine again and cool it down? I shop for all my 87 528E parts here. Reposition the 5 gallon drain pan so it is under the loose lines leading to the steering rack. Edit: I didn't see that it is when warmed up, not when cold, so probably not a blower then.

Get your large wrench back out, put the belt back on the alternator, and your good to go. Thanks in advance for you comments! Just changed both belts on my 95 E36 and it went like a snap. Using an impact wrench and a 13mm impact socket, remove the 3 bolts holding the pulley to the pump. I'm not sure what would break it, other than maybe the water pump bearing siezing and the sudden stop overloading the bolt holes on the pulley. Would it be correct to turn crank counter clockwise to get some slack to check? A core charge is what a supplier charges for a recyclable item…. Replace the mechanical fan and shroud and start the vehicle to insure the job is done correctly. If you're using a debit card we suggest you switch to a credit card.
