    Default Belt screech on start up/ switch off (2.2.dti)

    Is this just a worn belt or is it a knackered tensioner?

    Probably just the aux belt worn, but it doesn't help to change the tensioner too
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    80% sure you'll need to change the tensioner I bought a belt to do mine but had to change the tensioner as it was solid

    Tensioner is held on with 2 torx bolts and is very easy to change although i needed to use a torx spanner on the top bolt as it is tight next to the chassis leg

    Is there a How 2? Its only makes a noise when starting and switching off the engine, so may just do the belt.

    Its a simple job.

    1. Jack up car and support
    2. You can remove RH road wheel for access but i didnt
    3. Just above the bottom pulley (biggest one) there is the tensioner
    4. On its backplate is a hex bolt, put a ratchet and socket on there and push anti clockwise. This will release the tension from the belt (but you have to hold it there)
    5. Slip off old belt.
    6. Slowly release tensioner.
    7. Fit new belt and when coming to the last pulley pull back tensioner with ratchet again to allow you to slip belt over the last pulley.
    8. Release tensioner

    All done

    Before you start draw yourself a little diagram of the belt so you know how the new one fits in.

    Also you may want to remove your airbox helps for access from the top.
