Balancer shaft belt.
There's a strange noise coming from within my engine, sounds like something flapping around, a bit like a snapped belt spininning round a pulley.
As the engine still runs I conclude that it can't be the cambelt, thank god, but I presume it's the belt for the balancer shaft. is it a fairly straight-forward job to remove this belt, I understand the engine will still run ok, without it.
I'm currently saving up to get the belts/variator changed in a few months time and will get it replaced then.
What's involved in removing the belt, will a set of screwdrivers and a socket set do it or will I need to expand my toolkit a bit?
