    Default Drive belt, pulleys and tensioner replacement

    After fitting a new alternator decided to replace drive belt, guide pulleys and tensioner. Got the dreaded 'chirp' and rattle. Would anyone know the torque settings for the pulley and tensioner mounting bolts? Tried searching forum and google but unable to find the settings :-( Its on an 8V 1.9 cdti 120. Any info greatfully received.

    Haynes manual states:-
    Tensioner 50Nm or 37lbf ft. Pulley 50Nm or 37lbf ft.
    I have the same irritating noise from my 8v 1.9 cdti. Has this work sorted the problem? How much were the guide pulleys?

    Right Mate -
    Timing Belt Idler Pulley Bolt = 50 Nm or 37 lb/ft
    Timing Belt Tensioner Bolt = 30 Nm or 22 lb/ft

    Hope that helps.

    Sorry Mate your talking about the auxillary belt - I got it in my head you meant the Timing Belt - Please ignore my above post.

    Default Cheers everyone for the fast response :-)

    I do tend to overtighten things Lutonmatt but learnt from past experiences lol So many thanks alcutler and jimboy26 :-) Not fitted yet and the whole lot ie belt, two guide pulleys and tensioner came to £84 with delivery which seemed a good price, febi bilstein parts. From part supplier in Doncaster www.partsforallcars.com Well recommended, great service.

    Are you certain that you can get a torque wrench into position next to the tensioner though? On some vec engines you can't as there's very little space between the tensioner and the chassis.

    Seems to be enough space with my vectra Rebellion, but will find out for sure when I get time to change the parts. I know there's room for the pulley between crank and aircon compressor and the tensioner but not looked at the upper pulley yet somewhere below the engine mount. I will be making it a days event anyway, got new thermostat to fit too lol..........Expecting grief with the egr cooler bracket! And yet another broken front spring to replace.

    Just a word to all. You do not need the idler pulley between aircon an crank pulley all you do is remove it and get a new belt from a o8 vectra as the newer 1.9 do not have this pulley the bolt holes are still there but the pulley was removed by vauxhall. I did this on my 07 1.9. 120
