Question about 2005 BMW X5
Posted by Anonymous on
your quite lucky that this has happened this way, the 4.4 has a shared belt, the belt powers the steering and the altenator that charges the battery when the charge rate drops the light comes on, most likely it wil need changing and I would recommend you have it done asap as if and when the belt snaps it cuases a lot of damage I had the 4.4 v8 petrol version on a 2000 plate, this happened to mine and cost me £350 to replace all the things the belt damaged when it snapped. I never got a warning like this so do get it looked at asap. if you are doing it your self you need to remove all the sheilding around the fan at the front to access the belt, also pat attention as to how it comes off draw a daigram if you are doing it as it can be very confusing to put back on.
