    Default Clicking from engine bay when idling - HELP!!!

    Hi guys & girls.
    I have a 1.9 cdti vectra C with 73,000 on the clock.
    For the last month or so i have been getting a loud clicking from what i believe to be the alternator pulley (auxillary?).
    Im assuming this is a fairly urgent job as although its not rythmic is gradually gettting louder.

    Can anyone confirm my fears, and advise if the pulley in question is easy to replace myself or whether its a new alternator job? (any 'how to' links would be great)

    Thanks to all in advance.
    Dan

    Is it definatly the alternator? Try removing aux belt and check others it's probably more likely tensioner

    i noticed a clicking from under the engine a couple of weeks ago and today my crank pulley broke in to pieces and managed to take a chunk out of my aircon pulley

    I have the same thing and it is the pulley.

    Need to change it at some point.
