    Post How2 for fan belt?

    After installed the new alternator, and drived around for a week, my fan belt (is this the right translation?) is reduced to nearly half as wide. It seems like the wheels that holds and tighten the belt is eating it up - it has slided into it, and tiny bit by tiny bit, it is cut off at the inner side.
    Is it a how2 that shows how to tighten it the right way, and also maybe explains the difference in the small wheels? It is one that has a nut at 15mm (bolt), and another one that is hold by a trox. How much should they be tightened, and also: I guess I should have replaced the belt - is there pictures for how it should be thread around down there? I've been looking around the forum, but can't find anything.
    Anyone's well known with this site, that can guide me?

    This is the how2 on an alternator change - http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=92987 - for some reason the pictures are not showing in this guide, however when I used it to replace my alternator the guide was very useful at the point where the belt needed to be changed. note- this guide is for the 1.9 CDTI

    EDIT: just seen you have posted in the How2 discussion. have bumped that thread, as I can't now see the pictures on the how2, which may help you?

    I'm done with the replace of alternator. My new problem is that I have done the installation of the fan-belt wrong. Or tightened it too much. (Is fan-belt the right translation?)

    Just like you, I helped me to use the how2 to replace my alternator. So what I need now, is a how2 for the fan-belt.

    yep, knew that you'd changed the alternator. thought the how2 would be useful just for the belt part. Will have a look later to see if I can find a diagram of the belt routing, and post it up later this evening.
