    Default 2.2dti belt tensioner

    My alternator belt tensioner on my 2.2dti vec c has just let go and looking for advise on whether its an easy fix or not. Being towed home by the AA wasn't what i had on mind on a Sunday afternoon.

    My tensioner went due to the bolt working loose then snapping so had to be drilled out. Tried to do it myself but the engine has to be dropped to get to the snapped bolt cost £120 to fix it.

    It's not too difficult to do when you have the car up on axle stands and the drivers side roadwheel off. The most fiddly thing is getting the wheel arch liner off to be able to get at the tensioner from underneath. (It's best to push the little plastic rod in the middle of the wheel arch liner plastic fixing clips right through and make up new plastic rods if you can't find the old ones). There is a How To on this forum, I'm pretty sure. You need the new tensioner assembly and a new auxilliary drivebelt. Cheapest source is probably Fleabay.
