BMW Information | Auxiliary Drive Belt Positioning - M43TU - E46

Reference for the correct fitting position of the drive belt on M43TU or M43B19 e46 BMW engines.

Placement is not obvious after the belt is removed nor indicated locally on how to wrap the belt around the various pulleys. This would prove problematic should the belt need replacing in an emergency (by the roadside) or at home. You can print this image and place in the vehicle glovebox for such an emergency breakdown event.
