    No No No. Do not buy any pulley other than from main dealer.

    Do a search on here crankshaft pulley.

    Myself and loads of peole with dti`s tried the cheap option from ebay. Bought the pulley and paid vx to fit it. Only to find the engine ran like a bag off spanners. The noise was very loud.

    Vx washed their hands with it as they said only fitted the pulley you supplied.

    After alot off hassle, i ended up buying a genuine vx pulley and vx fitted it, charging me again.

    Whilst the ebay pulley was off vx and myself used a mic to measure the pulley compared to an original one.

    The results were that in every dimmension it was spot on, BUT the weight difference was black and white. The ebay one was 10 times heavier (no joke).

    this caused the crankshaft to run noisly because of the extra weight.

    So leason learned.

    This scenareo happened to lots of members on here, then forking out again for a genuine pulley.

    So be warned. Lots on this forum about it.
