BMW Belts

Just wondering, what are the types of belts available in 530i-2002, how to check them & when to replace each one?

I know the Fan belt, Alternator Belt, Serpentine belt, V belt & Gate belt …

not really sure what you are asking. newer bmws have timing chains so they dont slip on timing and that only leaves an accessories belt and an AC belt.
