Worn cam belt tensioners JTD Mjet 16v
I started getting an intermittent squeeky squeel from a roller bearing somewhere on the engine. Changed the Aux belt idler and tensioner for new items, while the belt was off felt the PAS and Alternator rotations and they both felt fine with no roughness/noise at all - very smooth.
I rekon the noise is from either the cam belt idler or tensioner, anyone else had these bearing making squeely noises? the tensioner sprocket seems to rock from side to side by a few mm when I take some the of the belt tension off it slightly.
It had a new water pump when the engine was rebuilt about 5k ago. ~cant rem if the timing belt sprockets were changed..
Anyone ele had a squeeky squeely cam belt tensioner?
~Ive ordered a new kit just incase as I got to drive 160Mile to the NEC next wkend..
