hi all, welcome to my first proper post as I am today, a proud owner of a nice 147 jtd 16v M-jet (2003).. my first ever alfa romeo..
I have a niggling sqeek, which is directly linked to engine speed, and have tried squirting some soapy water on the aux drive belt, and the squeek goes away for a short period.. also when you accleerate it seems to quieten down a bit too , suspect its as the engine speeds up the belt tightens slightly....?
Do the jtd 16v mjet have any problems with the tensioners? the belt feels a bit too slack when I tug on it with my fingers..
I'm planning on changing the drive belt and all the tensioners at the same time I change the timing belt with all those tensioners too,
Do you think this is a simple belt squeek? hope so
absolutely loved the drive back, very very comfy (rare for me) perfect pedals, great 6spd gbox and wonderful power delivery
a big time convert I think...
