    Default New alternator and belt

    Hi all I've just had to put a new alternator and belt in my old cdti but now it sounds like the belt is slipping and 4th and 5th gear it does do it in lower gears but not like in 4th and 5th is this cos its a new belt and alternator or is the belt not tight enough.

    Tbh if it were me i'd have told him where to go. Sold as seen when it comes to private sales. If you had known it was going to fail a day later then he should have picked it up when he was looking at the car
