hi,
anyone have a procedure out there for changing the alternator belt and bushings for E30 M3. Any help appreciated.

Thanx

I don't but *DO* pay attention to the orientation of the bushings on the alternator. I said "ha!" and found myself redoing them because the alternator won't bolt back up if you mix them up.

Careful also with the bolt going into the aluminum (timing cover?) you do NOT want to strip this. I'd also suggest replacing the toothed bracket, I'm sure the original ones are in pretty bad shape by now.

Good luck!
