    Default Alternator / AUX Belt Change - 1.9 150

    Dose anyone know if there is a HOW 2 on this topic?

    Mines squeaking quite badly now so need to change it over.
    I have taken a look in the Haynes manual but it seems abit vague - don't know if its as simple as they say it is!

    Many thanks.

    Thanks for the links!

    It possibly is, but the belt looks pretty worse for wear (cracked.etc) will replace the belt first and see what happens, if it still squeals every now and again ill change over the tensioner!

    if your replacing the belt do the tensioner & idler pully wheel at the same time, or you could still end up with squealing

    Well, did the belt tonight - made no difference whatsoever (needed doing all the same though)

    I took a video of the sound, does it sound like the aux belt tensioner / pulley?
