    Default help needed trying to fit alternator belt

    hi all i have a 2006 1.9 16v cdti, today i tried to change the crank pulley and belt, old pulley and belt came of no problem, for the life of me i carnt get the new belt on or the old one. no idea what is going on, ive checked the new crank pulley against the old one and its the same size, why do the belts seem to small, the old belt is a 61410 the new belt 61413, im turning the tensioner pulley fully clockwise till it wont go anymore, when i turn the tensioner it actually looks like it is tightening the belt not giving me more slack. please someone tell me im stupid and tell me whats going on.
    thanks all matt

    Have you put the belt tensioner on incorrect mate.

    The tensioner wheel will be virtually touching the vibration pulley (outer crank pulley) until you open the tensioner round to fit the belt.

    I may have a pic - let me see...

    Ah Ok.

    No - dont remove the tensioner then....

    Are you sure you have it on the correct route? Sounds like you may be putting it back incorrect.

    Can you get a pic or two of how you are trying to fit?

    You need to roll the tensioner back, get a spanner or socket on it and turn it clockwise, it should drop allowing you to put the new belt on, When you ease it back it'll put the tension back on. 2 pairs of hands might be helpful but its straight forward enough
