* What did you do to/for your E46 today? *

Replacing my tensioner pulley right now, and I was taking my brand-new idler pulley off that I replaced a month ago, and these two pieces came apart, not a big deal because the bolt holds it in but is it okay to re install? Attachment 518375

drove it to work, then used it for work, then worked, tried to leave work, but car wouldn't start.
pretty sure the starter took a **** on me, gonna double check tomorrow morning and hopefully replace. According to the shop mechanic at the scene it was my fault since I cleaned the ICV and messed it up, should've left it dirty. Oh and that was 3 months ago.

Thanks, I agree, I tried popping it back on, and it is it's on even, so that means the pulley would be spinning unstraightened. So I put my old one back on and I will contact ECS tuning for brand-new one since I bought it last month

Nice, my girlfriend and I had a good time doing my subframe mounting points also. Nice easy relaxing job.

Saw the new I series BS that is being unveiled and decided it's time to sell my BMW. This is a sad day for driving enthusiasts around the world.

1) It was pretty relaxing, despite how intimidating it looked initially!

2) Where do you meet women like that. Show me your ways.

That's what it looks like. He probably didn't yield properly (sorry to say)
