    Its a pretty simple DIY job, belt cost me £25 ish... but if you dont fancy having a go i'm guessing an hours labour which at VX here is around £65 plus the £25 ish for belt

    I will no boubt be corrected if I am wrong but I thought that the aux' belt was held in place by a spring loaded idler pully. To remove the belt place a spanner/socket on the idler nut and push against the spring to slacken the belt and remove, then slowly ease back the spring. Place new belt into position around the other pullies, push back idler, fit belt over idler and ease idler onto belt, job done.

    I would have thought the same too. On the 1.8 it is as simple as that.


    If you really can't do it yourself, DON'T go to the dealer and pay an hours labour for essentially less than 2 minutes work. Go to any garage and 'slip' them a fiver.

    I wonder if Halfords will fit it for you?

    yep that is right... but it took me a good 30 mins as space is limited but quite straight forward.

    Having been supplied with incorrect belts in the past it's worth noting the belt length is usualy printed on the outside. Also a good idea is to make a little diagram of belt route as it's not always obvious when refitting.
