I'm in the process of replacing the two tensioner pulleys as the grease inside has dried up, and has begun making noise. From the diagram below I'm replacing pulleys in red, number 1 and 2. I've removed pulley 1, which can be seen below.
I've spend half the day trying to find a new replacement pulley. I went to German and Swedish, Euro car Parts and then BMW them selves and non of them sell this particular pulley.
Anyone know of a supplier that still supplies these?, or do I need to buy a whole new after market tensioner?
Part Number on the pulley is: 003-814-149/372 or its F-226-239-2300
