BMW & MINI Serpentine Belt & Pulley Replacement – DIY Video
We recommend replacement of the serpentine accessory drive belts and tensioner/idler pulleys at 60,000 mile or 4-year intervals. Replacement is very easy and straight forward. In this video, we’ll show you the procedure on a 2001 3.0 Z3. Other six cylinder models are similar, as are the V8s and MINIs. The applicable Bentley repair manual will address the specific details for your BMW or Mini model.
In the video, we use a few special tools, to include the Fan Clutch Wrench, Pulley Holder Tool and Non-Marring Pry Tools.
