Is it 71Nm for the 12mm nut on the cam belt tensioner for my 2000 748?

looking through the manual thats the only reference I can find on anything that looks like int may be the cam bet tensioner nut.

thanks

fuck no. it'll have torn the thread out long before you get to 71. it's an m8 thread, so 25nm.

the 71 is the pulley retaining nut, the 4 prong thing.

Somewhere between 1/4 and 1/2 turn after the initial toque of the nut setting into the washer.

Replace the wavey washer between the nut and pulley mount. I seldom do it and have not run into an issue with reuse of the washer 4 or 5 times. But replacing it is good advice.

Thanks Guys, I thought 71 seemed high for that nut, hence my question.

Appreciate the quick reply
