    Default tension pullys come off

    cut a long story short

    had to call the aa out because of a noise turned out to be tension pully has come away from the car making a banging noise on the metal , he said there easy to do but somethink about the engne needs to be jacked up to get some room he said £40-£60 max?


    while i get that fitted is there anythink else that they might as well do if there going to fix this?
