Your BMW’s engine timing belt is one of the most important components in your car. Even when other components of your BMW engine are okay, without the timing belt, the engine can’t rotate or transfer power to your wheels. If the timing belt fails your vehicle will come to a grinding halt. Sudden engine stops when the timing belt fail, can lead to expensive engine damage.
Here are a few helpful tips to help you recognize when you need to bring your BMW car or BMW vehicle in for timing belt maintenance and service:
Unless you have a lot of auto repair experience, a timing belt replacement is not an easy DIY job and should be handled by a professional. The mechanic needs to gain entry to the timing cover of the engine by removing various accessories.
After the cover has been removed, the mechanic will analyze the timing belt and its pulleys. At this point, he will begin to remove the timing belt and replace it with a new one. They will likely replace the pulleys, tensioners, and water pumps if they feel it is important to do so. Once all the new parts are in, he will put the timing cover back on and any other parts that were removed. Now that it is all put back together, it can be tested with the start of the engine.
