    Angry Crank Pulley Damper

    Help

    Have just taken my Signum 2.2DTi (53 plate 38000 miles) into the local vauxhall dealership for an oil and filter change; which then turned into you need new front discs and pads and the rear brakes are sticking so we will clean them for you OK for now I accept that things wear out and need replacing £306 bill.

    I got to the garage as it was coming back from a test drive; in which the mechanic reported that the engine management light had come on and gone off again (this has never happened before).

    Tried to take the car home and the Engine Management and Battery warning lights came on; took the car straight back.

    Another mechanic came out with me and same fault again; "bring it back in the morning and we will look at it".

    Tried to take it home after 1/4 mile noticed the temperature gauge was climbing alarmingly so took it straight back and left it.

    Went in this morning to tell them what had happened, just received a phone call this morning to tell me that the crank pulley damper has snapped and will cost another £294. Is this just another case of a part wearing out or should I be suspicious of the dealership cocking up and pulling a fast one?

    Previous experience of the same dealership was going in for a clutch change and them frying the ecu!!!!

    unfortunatly the crank damper failing is well known....they delaminate and the drivebelt portion falls off.....

    the sad thing is, it normally happens put of warranty....

    yep...it's another problem waiting to happen.. if you hear a knocking ( apart from the deisel noise) then the pulley is on it's way out..peugeot HDi's really suffer from this....

    Managed to haggle with the service manager and got 10% discount on the parts and repair bill, at least it was something.

    CHECK NOW the crankshaft pulley.. i'd lay even money the rubber isolator is splitting and the pulley is seperating into two halves...check now and change it if it needs it... very common failing..

    if you need a new one, they are around £200 from VX ( which is an absolute ripoff)....and a new crank bolt (£14)..

    The centre bolt is extremely tight.. i used a 1" sq drive impact gun to shift the last one..it was a beast to undo..

    changing it is very simple, getting the bolt undone will drive you bonkers..
