    BMW E39 Drive Belts & V-Belts

    Your BMW's drive belts are wear items, and will degrade and crack over time. Don't wait until you have a belt failure... don't get stranded! Replacing your BMW's belts, such as the alternator belt, power steering belt, air conditioning AC belt, or serpentine belt is a low cost insurance policy to preventing a break down -- or worse, engine damage. We recommend checking your belts every 10,000 miles. If your belts have excessive cracks, dry rot, missing teeth and/or grooves, are cause noise, it's time for new ones.

    While also inspecting your serpentine belts, also check for wear or resistance in the pulleys. The tensioner pulley and deflection pulley are the primary sources for belt squealing. The rubber-isolated pulleys can also break apart, leading to total belt failure. We sell the tensioner and deflection pulleys for the M50 engine family used in the E34, E36, E39, E46, X5, Z3, and Z4.

    AC Belt Tensioner with pulley fits 2003+ BMW's with the M54 or M56 engine. These belt tensioner units are known to fail, and include the tensioner pulley (as shown).

    Continental is the OEM supplier for the stock serpentine accessory belt on your M52TU or M54 engine. They are also the OEM for many other components on your entire car. This extensive kit covers many of the common wear items that should be changed any time the serpentine belt is being replaced. As these cars gain years and mileage the belt tensioners will also need to be replaced along with the actual belts. It won't do any good to replace the belt if the tensioners are worn. This kit will save you time and money over buying these pieces individually and you get OEM-quality over any 3rd party aftermarket brands.

    Included in the accessory belt and tensioner kit is:
    • main drive belt, 11281706545
    • A/C belt, 11281437450
    • mechanical belt tensioner with pulley, 11281427252
    • A/C belt tensioner with pulley, 11287512758
    • deflection pulley, 11281748130
    • mounting bolts

    This kit fits cars with the mechanical belt tensioner only. Generally this is all cars up to 2002 model year but you may want to double check your car and match the picture to the tensioner on your engine. The hydraulic tensioner has a miniature shock absorber on the belt tensioner. You can also tell early from late by the A/C belt. BMW changed the spec from a 5-rib belt up to 2002 to a 4-rib belt from 2003 onwards. This kit does not fit any M56 SULEV engines.

    This item fits the following BMWs:

    For Air Conditioning A/C Belt

    Hydraulic Belt Tensioner for E36, E39, Z3 6-cyl models. This is the oil-filled tensioner that keeps the A/C belt in the proper tension. Over time the piston seals inside allow fluid to leak out. The tensioner becomes frozen or inoperable. Replacement is the best corrective action to take. This can be done during any belt or pulley service or anytime the fan is off the engine.

    This is the tensioner pulley, also known as the adjusting pulley and lower pulley. This pulley is mounted on the belt tensioner near the center of the belt assembly. The upper and lower pulleys are known to be the primary sources for 'belt squealing'. This pulley is also encased in rubber which will crack over time. If left without service the rubber could fail completely, chucking the belt and leaving you stranded. Replacement is a very simple procedure and can be done anytime the fan is off the engine (belt replacement, water pump service, alternator replacement, etc).

    This pulley is mounted along with the hydraulic belt tensioner but can be replaced on its own. It is used for the main drive belt on the M50-M54 family engines (M50, M50TU, M52, S52, M52TU, M54, M56, and S54 engines). This is the same belt that covers the water pump/alternator/power steering systems. Replacement is a very easy procedure (requires fan removal) and will have your engine purring in no time. Belt replacement is strongly recommended at the same time. If you have a mechanical belt tensioner, the pulley can only be replaced with a new tensioner.

    This is the Upper Idler Pulley, also known as the roller pulley or deflection pulley. The upper and lower idler pulleys are known to be the primary sources for 'belt squealing'. The pulley is also encased in rubber which will crack over time. If left without service the rubber could fail completely, chucking the belt and leaving you stranded. Replacement is a very simple procedure and can be done anytime the fan is off the engine (belt replacement, water pump service, alternator replacement, etc).

    This pulley shares its mounting bolt with the alternator, and is used for the main drive belt on the M50-family engines (M50, M50TU, M52, S52, M52TU, M54, M56, and S54 engines), and also used on the S85 V10. This is the same belt that covers the water pump/alternator/power steering systems. Replacement is a very easy procedure (requires fan removal) and will have your engine purring in no time. Belt replacement is strongly recommended at the same time.

    This item is 80mm Diameter. Please check the diameter before ordering.

    This is the stock water pump pulley that mounts between the engine fan and the water pump. We have seen these plastic or composite pulleys crack around the mounting bolt holes. If left un-noticed the whole pulley can fall apart which will immediately disable the car and possibly leave you stranded. It can also break while performing other work around it such as removing the fan, replacing the water pump, or even just replacing the belt. Replacing this pulley while doing the water pump can be a good preventative measure.

    This pulley is available in two different styles - the stock plastic or a stronger aluminum version. The same drawbacks with the stock pulley also apply to this plastic version. But if you're replacing the water pump on a regular basis then you should also replace the plastic pulley. The aluminum pulley will obviously last much longer. Both are the same size as the stock original pulley.
