This includes a lifetime warranty and your car will run smoother and quieter with this Fluidampr and clutched alternator pulley.
The Fluidampr harmonic balancer also fits many European and International models equipped with the M57. (scroll down for an application guide)
BMW recommends replacing the harmonic balancer bolts everytime you remove them. The harmonic balancer bolt part number is 11-23-2-247-932, and it's available in this listing at a discounted price of $20 per set of 4.
Clutched Pulley Conversion Kit for Alternators:
Shortly after releasing the Fluidampr we quickly learned that most vehicles had a noise/vibration on the serpentine belt. This vibration is caused by the alternator having a solid metal pulley instead of a decoupler pulley that is found on many alternators. We will be providing these decoupler pulleys with Fluidamprs, this will eliminate all noise and vibration providing you with an exceptionally smooth running and quiet vehicle.

FAQ SECTION: This will be updated as time goes on
Q: What does the Fluidampr unit weigh in comparison to the stock unit?
A: The Fluidampr unit is 15.6 lbs. and I just weighed my stock unit, it is also 15.6lbs
However, with any viscous type damper there is a rotating weight factor as during engine operation our internal inertia ring stays suspended in the silicone fluid thus relieving the crankshaft of this weight. Rotating weight for this unit is 10.4 lbs.
Also, it is important to note: when dealing with a harmonic damper (balancer) you must have the proper amount of inertia mass (weight) in order to control dangerous torsional vibrations. General rule of thumb (there is a limit) a heavier damper will do a better job at absorbing crankshaft twist thus reducing the amount of vibration being put back into critical engine components. Time and time again we have done h.p./torque comparisons vs. lighter OEM dampers and put down higher h.p./torque numbers on the dyno as well as overall torsional improvements.
Q:What is the correct bolt torque?
A: 40NM (29.5ft/lbs) + 120 degrees; these are torque to yield bolts.
Q:How do I use the belt tool?
Q:Where do I insert the crankshaft lock tool?
A:Driver's side of the engine block, above the oil pan, under the crankshaft sensor. There may be a grey rubber plug you need to remove. Press the tool in the hole, while turning the crankshaft, the tool will find a hole in the flexplate and keep it locked.
DO NOT forget to remove the tool before starting the engine!

Great job designing a part that should have been done in the first place by BMW. Professional look and solid performance. well done.
Just had my OEM damper fail at 133kmi... I’m the second owner so I’m not sure if it was the original because I bought it at 92kmi. I’m a UTI grad and knew that the OEM balancer could be an issue because it’s basically vulcanized rubber. Sure enough, battery light came on, AC stopped working, power steering lost. I chose this kit because there’s no inherent design flaw like the OEM. It’s not the be all end all but it’s smoother at idle through 2krpm and much smoother above that. AARodriguez steps to replacement are flawless including torque angle. Get the belts and tools then follow his instructions, you will not be disappointed.
Installed this on my 335d without any issues. Highly recommend!
No problems. It seems as smooth as the OEM. The OEM was likely to fail.
Wanted to install this before mine failed. Removed the stock damper and saw that it had already failed. Installed this one with the kit from TuneMyEuro. They provided everything I needed. Installation as easy and I can tell the engine is smoother, less vibrations. Thanks guys.
I purchased this item, from Tunemyeuro about two months ago. There was a lead-time on delivery. My daughter's car had a failure of this item and I have a good spare. Since I was doing the repair, I told her I thought she should just bite the bullet and do it right. My advice: order before yours breaks. This product is wonderful, as it is not failure prone, as the originals. The procedure was well written and easy to follow. Do the belts, idler and tensioner when you do this. Get the tensioner that doesn't have the attachment (unless yours is defective)
This balancer eliminates so much vibration the vehicle no longer sounds like a diesel and it also further balances the I-6 engine. Works wonders.
It is so much smoother at startup idle What a great difference
I have installed this thing on my 335d. Being already deleted it wasn't too hard to do yourself. Just need to be able to get the car in the air and then just follow the instructions. The only confusing part was that it wants you to add 120 degrees of torque in addition to stretch the bolts. I don't get why not just say tighten it to xxx lbft the first time. Either way I followed the instructions and after 3k miles the car is still running like its supposed to and has less vibration that you can feel from when the OE balancer was going out. All in all seems like a good product.
