Trob is an unknown quantity at this point
Well the first problem with my bimmer ocured today. my wife was going to pick up the kids and she heard a shrill sound and pulled over. Looks like the belt poped off ...didn't break at least. I had her towed in. I miss her already. It's the belt closest to the engine. Hope it's not the timing belt! ghead It was running fine when i got to it...just screeching and smoke comeing from where the belt was rubbing. Like I said I didnt' want to chance driving it so I had it towed.

The timing belt is in a place you cant see I'm pretty sure. I just went through the same thing and replaced all 3 accessory belts

e30's dont have serpentine belts...just VBelts or "Fan belts" as they are called...they only control water pump, fan, alternator, AC, and power steering...i removed them all accept the water pump and alternator...hah made maintance easy...
