How'd you manage that? LOL.
half bmw's poor engineering and half my poor choice in ride height
people have the issue with factory right height but being lower i imagine i hit quite a bit of shit on the bottom of it, causing that mounting piece that's poorly designed to break off, so then i had my former indy 'fix' it, i didn't know the issue was this bad, he never told me.. my serpentine belt came off and he said he had to 'adjust' some stuff to get it to fit.. by adjust he meant lightly jb-welding that piece onto the pump and putting it back on
my car has been running like shit ever since, but i dont have a lift of my own, so i just dealt with it, by ear and lack of solid power steering i ordered the pump, found a GOOD indy and we did this work the other night
we pulled the pump and it literally was two pieces, not good
put a new one back on, new pulley, new belt (again.) and it runs like fucking butter now, all the power that i forgot i was missing out on for the last 3 months is now back
plus we rebuilt the front end suspension so i've got tons of power again, power steering which i missed a lot lol, and a buttery smooth suspension.. doesn't feel like a 140k mile car at all!
up next is motor mounts, tranny mounts, valve cover gaskets, injectors, and plugs
