Re: 147 diesel cam belt shredded
I have a 156 1.9 JTD 16V in my work shop that has snapped its belt at 60k, luckily the guy has a warranty. On the positive side on this engine they have rockers which appear to be sacrificial so there is no damage to the valves or pistons, so the damage is nothing like as bad as it could be.
I think you may well have a come back with Alfa, the worrying thing is we may well start to see more of this.
