    Default auxillary belt on 1.8?

    i`ve just been checking the oil/water etc & noticed that the aux: belt is cracking and some split lines on it. i bought a new one but some help on how to slacken/retention the belt would be much appretiated, i`ve looked on How To but nothing on for the 1.8, the motors done 142k so the timing belt is probably due for a change too, it was last changed at 75k by previous owner. i`l do the aux belt myself but the cam belt will have to go to the local garage methinks. cheers keith

    Vehicle : Jaguar XF 3.0D V6

    Trim : Black

    Engine : 3.0D V6

    Year : 0000

    Is't it a spring loaded tensioner? Ie you simply lever the tensioner to slacken the belt, remove and replace and let go slowly?

    From memory, there is a square hole in the tensioner arm to insert a ratchet square drive and lever the arm

    On the 2002/5 Cs 1.8 just fit a spanner over the nut on the idler pully, small one to the rear and move anti-clockwise to release belt, remove belt, replace with new one ensuring that the belt is fitted correctly around ALL the pullies.

    On the 1.8 when you release the tensioner there are two holes which align. Place a suitably sized drill in these holes which keeps the tension off and enables you to route the new belt, then ease the tension off the drill with the spanner and remove the drill. Sometimes pays to make a little drawing or photo of the belt route as its not always obvious when fitting the new belt. HTH

    Nothing to remove, all that is required is one spanner and a new belt, dead easy job which is a nice change on cars nowadays.
