: I need to change the large drive belt on my 530. So i will replace both.

: I can find no prior discussion of the install process and Bently doesn't address V8 drive belts.

: Any tips or suggestions?

I've done the belts on my 530 - not a difficult job. The E34 Bentley manual does cover this. Remove fan and lower splash guard, loosen tensioner, and replace. Make sure you sketch out the routing of the serpentine belt before you remove it so you know how it goes back on.
