belt

  1. Alfa Giulietta
    I hear some odd noises and the belt looks worn. Serpentine belts are supposed to be easy to change, but are there any gotchas for Giulietta?

    Hi, I drove home from work yesterday, only a 5 minute drive. As I puled in my timing belt went. I was only idling doing 10MPH approx. What is the chance of other damage to the engine or valves. I have a friend who is a mechanic and he is prepared to do the work for a price, of course. I am...

    My November 2012 Giulietta is well and truly due for a timing belt change on the basis of time, but has only done 44,000km. The authorised dealer has quoted AU$1100 and a well-regarded independent workshop says $950.60 with water pump or $580 without water pump - he says he'll decide on...

    Hello. I am no professional that’s why i mist ask. Today I started my alfa romeo 159 2.4 2006 and my timing belt had jumped off. I turned off the engine immediately. My question is - does my engine is now dead or something?

    Hello, Is there a guide somewhere on changing the aux belt on a 156 2.5 V6? I found a couple of them for just changing the belt but I would like to change the tensioner and two of the idler pulleys. I am interested on how to remove the pulleys and tensioner and in what order do I remove them...

    There seems to be a severe lack of noise about this issue. ive had i kind of whine at high revs, like belt chirp for a couple of years now ive dealt with it and dealt with it, and since i have the week off its time for the ol' girl to get some TLC, ive spent most of the day in the garage hiding...

    got a wee 147 project car that i'm trying to get back on the road and i've just changed the belts, waterpump and cam sensor but now it's all back together there's a bit of a worrying knocking/tapping noise. I've taken the covers back off and double checked tensioners etc and ran it with the...

    Morning folks - got a wee 147 project car that i'm trying to get back on the road and i've just changed the belts, waterpump and cam sensor but now it's all back together there's a bit of a worrying knocking/tapping noise.

    My 16v 156 JTD needs the timing belt replaced due to a cracked fuel pump sprocket. I've been reading the Autodata guide, and maybe a silly question, but why do I need to slacken off the exhaust camshaft pulley, and what do I hold it with whilst slackening it off? I'll be using the correct...

    The roller on my 1.9jtdm tensioner has a shot bearing, rather than buying whole thing am I right in thinking the roller is exactly the same as the other guide rollers so I can replace just that? Also my air con is noisy no play or noises when rotating compressor by hand but there is no...

    The cam/timing belt is due for a change, but where do you suggest i take my Giulietta 2.0 diesel? The Alfa Shed (Fareham) - quoted £300, but doesn't service Alfa's anymore Sussex Alfa Romeo (nr. Burgess Hill) - from £265 Monza Sport (Ashington) - £535 (everything: cambelt, waterpump etc) Any...

    I'm really struggling to replace my 3.2 Brera's Aux Drive Belt (6PK2145). Even with the power steering pump pivoted and the tensioner fully released I can't get the belt over the last pulley. Photo attached of the old belt which was tight coming off. I'd really appreciate any tips from anyone...

    I'm having a discussion on ARBB with a guy who had exactly the same problem as me (RHD) when he bought some inertia reels from CA for his 76 spider (LHD), CA say the reel should fit fine but the mount is so far under the hood when its down they get trapped and don't work, I redrilled holes in...

    I'm just about ready to have a bash at the timing belt on my V6, I have a Sealey VS1404 locking kit but it says it is for the 2.5 V6 am I right in saying it will also do the 3.0?
  16. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Forgive me about talking about a saab here, but I'm pulling my hair out. I had an alternator pulley failure, so replaced the alternator. Now trying to fit the auxiliary belt back in place I'm really struggling. I think this is the same engine as fitted in the Alfas. Its a 150bhp 1.9 tid engine...

    Does anyone have any advise, i've been told that my engine will need rebuilding for a sum of 2 to 4k !! is this really true? I pulled away slowly from a set of traffic lights and the car seemed to stall, and then would not start again, after a friend plugged it into a computer it was found to be...

    Good Afternoon, I purchased a 33 16V Engine to swap my 8V Engine from my 33 series 3. Continues from Post "Alfa 33 EFI Engine to Carbs" So I finally got the engine at my friends garage and checked it out I noticed that the Water Pump Roller was eaten away and although the belt was tensioned i...

    Hi guys had my g 170 for 4 months now, had a coolant leak for a while... turns out it's water pump ? how hard to change timing belt/water pump on these? I know my way around an engine but I've never done a belt before. Garage local to me in Swansea quoted £341 all in. Cheers guys, Matthew.

    Hi, when you buy timing belts for your sud, do they usually come as a pair or are they sold individually? Not that I would change one at a time, just that there are some being advertised and the seller hasn't done a very good description. Thanks
