This is 2nd time Jay has worked on my BMW, he is reliable and explained everything to me. He replaced front brake pads and rotors and did an oil change. So convenient having work done at my house by an experienced, reliable and friendly mechanic. Will be making an appointment for back brakes very soon. Thanks Jay.

Everything was fine except for the piece of plastic I found under my car. I don't recognize it. Is it from my car or is it part of one of Stephan's tools?

All about Serpentine/Drive Belt Replacement

The serpentine/drive belt or v-belt is a rubber belt that connects the alternator, power steering, and AC to the part of the engine (crankshaft) which transfers the power from the engine to those components. Without this belt, the battery will not get charged and none of the electrical accessory components in the car will work. The serpentine belt and v-belt are also known as "drive belts." Because of the high amount of heat in the engine, the belt can develop cracks over time and eventually break. If the belt breaks, the steering wheel will be difficult to turn and driving will be hazardous. In some cars, water pumps are driven by the drive belts. If the belt breaks, water and coolant needed to keep the engine cool will not properly flow to the engine. The engine will overheat, potentially causing severe damage.
