Driving home last night on a twisty country road when I heard a slight thud from the front of the vehicle. Power steering went off immediately so I had to wrestle the X6 to the side of the road and into a nearby lay-by. Turns out the pulley which is attached to the crank shaft had failed. Had the vehicle recovered to my Indy specialist last night by the RAC. The centre of these pulleys is made of some kind of rubber and it had completely failed and the pulley was lying on the under side engine cover.
Waiting to see what the repair bill will be today
Discuss the problems with your X6 (E71).

It should make a difference! It's not "just" a pulley, it's also a vibration damper.
