V-Belt DIY ????

Is there a DIY for the fanbelt on a 2008 3.0 ?

I searched just about everything but can't find it.

Anyone done it? is it tricky ?


Did it twice on the 2001 and it was a "pita" pain in the ass

This is from an e90 forum, but the principals should be the same. Good luck!

So I guess I should have checked one day earlier the belt started to strand and I lost 2 groves from the belt. Now the bad part. The belt strand cut the lower coolant hose. Fun times tomorrow I'll take pics along the way and post a DIY for the belt and lower hose.
