    Default Front Pulley Snapped!

    Not a happy bunny at all!

    In Milton Keynes earlier on, stopped then car, turned the key to start it 5 minutes later, a really big Klunk, then everything was fine. Drove round the block, and the temperature gauge was going up above normal level.

    Stopped the car, opened the bonnet, looking down the side of the engine, it looks like the front pulley has snapped off!

    Phoned the RAC, bloke come's out and said its snapped off, couldnt do anything with it, so towed me home.

    NOW...

    Has anyone elese had a similar problem to this ,with Pulley's snapping off. I am told, that what may have happened, is the outer pulley, may have come apart from the centre of itself, Is this possible?? Is it a common problem with Vectra's?

    Please help, and an idea of cost would be nice too.

    Happened on my old Vectra B. 2.2 Dti Sri. Its the bonding between the rubber centre and the outer metal guide. It literally falls off. Cost me £15 for a second hand one and £20 for my mechanic to put it on. I tried to take one off a car in a scrap yard but unless you have windy guns, can lock the crank and know what yr doing it ain't coming off. It is the tightest nut on the car. New one is £160 + vat. Common fault apparently I'm afraid.

    HTH.

    Benny, so long as the part number is the right one for my car, i will definately have it. As for Postage and packing, get a price and we'll sort it out mate. Will check the part number in the morning, unless Mark or MTC know if its right or not??

    Where in the West Midlands are you??
