Q: On the 760li what is the socket size and or type to use on the tensioner

asked by on

My belt broke on my car and I have purchased a new Serpentine belt and when removing the old one I noticed the ac belt is not far from breaking as well so I am on my way to buy one and I cannot see the what kind of socket size or type I will need on the tensioner so my question is what kind or size will I need and is there any other advice before I start.

My car has 110000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. If you haven’t completed this job before, I strongly recommend purchasing a service and repair manual for your 2005 BMW 760Li; as it will give you detailed instructions and steps, including the right sized tools to use and the exact steps for removal. This can get rather tricky; especially on the installation portion if you don’t follow the recommended steps in order.
