    Hi all, e60 530d auto 2004, now first of all : This is the turbo-to-intercooler hose. Yes, its very nasty. I don't mind having oil in the system, it is expected, however I have to ask, what can cause such an oil leak ? Especially considering it seems to be hitting the hose right above it (I...

    Anyone!!!!!!! I need help. I have a 2005 320cd and want to change the ribbed belt tensioner and idle pulley. Idle pulley easy but the tensioner is another matter. It's the type that has the pulley then a 'L' shaped rod that disappears behind the timing case. Diagrams show it going into a...

    Hi Having a minor squealing on cold start up which quickly goes away when the cars warmed up, reading these forums suggest it will be the tensioner pulley bearing dried up although the belt is old, probably original as the car is a low 30k miles and I've only just bought it. Think I will have...

    Looking to replace my thermostat soon so whilst in that area thought it would be wise to replace water pump and aux belt as last winter the belt didnt squeel but was audible on cold mornings untill warm. Would changing just the waterpump/alternator and air conditioning belts just be ok to make...

    Hi, I am looking to change the belts and tensioners on my 525d e61 2004. The main belt seems ok I can see the tensioners. Looking at the A/C belt it appears to be direct drive with no tensioner. Is there a special technique to get this off and on? I cant find anything on line about it...

    You know it's time to change your water pump when the engine sounds like your cutlery doing the spin cycle in the washing machine :O). Doing the belts too, anyone got any hints on things to look out for? Cheers!
