Grease was found to be leaking out of the bearing. Quite happy with the work that was done.
I couldn't find a picture of the deflection pulley or the product at ecs. That's not the idler pulley right?

It is the idler pulley - it's the only pulley not attached to a tensioner or driving an accessory. It sits a little below the oil filter housing and next to the water pump pulley.

Look at the second picture in this thread and you'll see what it looks like:

Sorry to bring this back from the dead. But my 2008 M3 is having the same noise as dey87. Any idea what this could be? Tensioners/idler pulleys? My car just hit 70K miles

This ECS Tuning page shows all the M3 S65 parts. 2 belts, 2 hydraulic tensioners, 3 idler pulleys with internal bearings (that could fail).

I have the supercharger whine, but also have an oil filter housing leak at 190k miles. So I have to do this belt kit too. $$$ to replace a $15.00 dollar gasket.

An indie BMW shop should be able to install all the parts. You have low mileage, but the
rubber does degrade, along with bearings on the pulleys, and hydraulic tensioners over time. Replace them all...should cost over $1k unfortunately.

No rush and can wait til the snow melts.

Speaking of Rush. Godspeed Neil Peart!!

Good Luck,


Cheers

Mine ended up being the idler pulley. I bought it from ECS, but then also did all new belts to kill two birds with one stone.

Also consider FCPEuro for a very solid warranty ;P
