    Default 2.2 DTI Auxillary (fan??) belt size. Help!!

    I am now trying to obtain my 3rd fan belt for my 2.2 Dti 2002 veccy (Elite model with Aircon). I have got belts from Halfords (i know, don't say), and previously trusted Ebay sources. Apparently the manafucturer's spec is a 6 rib 1885mm belt, but this is too big on my car. It is ok for a few thousand miles and then slips, as it is right on the edge of the tensioner when initially fitted. The latest belt that i have got and was assured is definately the correct one (1885) is the same size as the last one that slipped. My local dealer seems unable to confirm the length but just wants to sell me a belt at twice the price, although on this occasion it would have been cheaper!! Can anyone advise what the correct length is?? I did replace the crankshaft pulley some time ago and am beginning to wonder if it was smaller than the original.

    You might find the answer in replacing the belt tensioner if you've gone through a couple of belts.

    I went through 2 of them only realizing the tensioner spring mech was knackered. Replaced it with a new one and the travel on it was much further than the dead one, which has fixed my slipping belt (been on for 3 months now)

    Pretty sure the tensioner is OK, I have given it a good coat of looking at and it has full travel. It is moving through quite a bit of an arc before it takes up tension, i would have thought with a new belt it would be at the beginning of its travel not the end?? The more i think about it the more i am suspecting the pulley. I might have to go for the next size down belt i think, unless some models had a shorter original belt anyway...
